I go here regularly with my two boys age 12&15 who absolutely love the food and the staff. Both my sons asked to have their birthday meal here. We love the food and the service. I've been going for years and never had a bad meal- the owner always comes and has a chat and the staff are friendly and... More

Just moved to Clifton and trying out the locals. Ordered achari lamb (very good) and a paneer dish. The paneer dish brought out was awful and clearly not what we had ordered. The waiter denied the mistake outright, arguing with us. Really not the best way to sort a problem out. Also, for £2.50 you would normally expect more than... More

We went to the restaurant on a Wednesday night and on arrival we were the only diners. Waiter was attentive and chutneys etc followed quickly. Starters & mains were good portions and very tasty. The restaurant got busier throughout our meal but the food came out in good time. Very happy with the food & service. We will return 😊

Admittedly, they were very busy and the evening started well. Poppadoms, chutney and starters all good. However as the restaurant became busier the standards dropped but I do think this was because they didn't have enough staff. Our main meals were lukewarm - my daughter's lamb was very chewy and swamped by raw chillies. On a quiet night, I'm sure... More

We first visited this restaurant about a year ago on a voucher deal and we have been regular ever since (1-2 times a month) We have visited many indians and this is one of the best. We have never been to another indian ever since our visit to Bombay spice and we have never had a bad dish! Cheers guys

Bombay spice is located in the heart of Clifton, with free parking local. Food is of good standard for Indian, (recommend the dopiaza). Service is friendly albeit not very fast - (why the lost Mark). We had a Taste card which made the bill £13.25 each which includes 2 drinks, starters and main!!! Amazing value for money.

The stair carpet leading to the upstairs restaurant was disgustingly filthy, and the under table cloth had not been changed for months by the look of it.
