Best Indian ever!

I visited this Indian restaurant as my friend recommended it, and I have to say it was the best Indian I have ever had, I've been all places even in England you aren't able to find Indian food like here. The food was fabulous, I had the chicken tikka masala and my partner had the lamb rogan josh... read more

Went with my wife. She had mild dish and I had chilli chicken masala. Everything was ok but nothing special. Dishes spicing heat was described by waitress and service was good. Good wine list and iced water was brought to the table.

I did a takeaway from this Indian restaurant. I was shocked to see the overpriced menu and unfriendly staff. I ordered chilli chicken, and did not see the price or the taste reflective of the price tag on the dish. Overall very poor experience and will not visit this place again. Avoid if you are on a budget. Poor Quality... More

We had a very nice early supper (we did not order off the early bird menu but it looked like a good bargain). We had the yummy garlic nan and one of the vegetarian entrees as well as the lamb curry. It was just right! A moderately priced good meal with a pleasant ambiance.

My wife and I visited the Bombay Palace last night (26th June). We had a wonderful meal.I had the Chicken Jalfreasy and my wife had the Lamb Birani. Both were lovely. We also had a side of Naan bread. The service was great. It was busy but not full. It appears as if there is no need for reservations. I... More

I got a takeaway from this place Sat eve. Indian food wouldn't normally be my first choice, but I have nothing negative to say. The chicken jalfrazi was to die for. Will definitely go back here when visiting cork again.

The food is not bad, although there is a much better Indian restaurant in Cork, but if you have to go to the washroom it really turns your stomach. The filth there is uncredible. When I talked to friends living in Cork about this, they said that they would never go there for the same reason: inacceptable toilets.
