The Bombay Palace is one of only a few Indian restaurants in Cork, but the quality of the food was very good, we went early on a Saturday evening and chose the early bird option which was extremely good value with ample portions starter, main course, side dish (rice or Bread) complimentary Popadoms followed by tea or coffee. The restaurant... More

The food here never disappoints and service is quick and friendly. The restaurant itself is clean and well presented but the seating is old and sagging. Also the toilets, although clean, really need to be updated and new tiles and fittings installed. Its a pity that some money is not spent here because it really could be a great restaurant.

This restaurant is a real gem in the city center. Great early bird deals and the main menu also has a great selection. Starters like the chicken pakora and onion bhaji are sublime and the vindaloo (if you like it very hot and spicy) is absolutely wonderful. I was in the restaurant when the previous reviewer from Birmingham ate there... More

Avoid Avoid Avoid. The chicken tikka is not home made. It is bought in, taken from a package in the fridge and warmed up. Mine was still cold and the chicken was hard. The onion bhaji is a deep fried mess and tastes awful. The main courses are not much better. Do not go to this restaurant.

Surprisingly I had never had Indian food up until recently. I decided to resolve this by visiting Bombay Palace earlier this year. Lovely restaurant just off Oliver Plunkett Street. Liked the interior, very homely and I felt very comfortable even though there was a group of 20 sitting directly beside us. For the appetizer I got the chicken pakora and... More
