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

Poor food and service more orientated around the restaurant (we were hurried to finish our first course because the next course was coming) than the customer. You will find better!
