Delicious food

It was a recommendation to go here by my Indian colleague. We went there on a Sunday and there were only a few people in the restaurant. But they were looking Indian, so we thought, it cannot be that bad. And the food was really good. We had samosas and a chicken saag and lamb with rice and garlic... read more

The portions are really small, not cheap. Breaks poppodams to make it look more, a cheap - like mine in one piece. Taste wasnt that good either. The heating was off and it was cold and no atmosphere at all, sad in there. E man serving us seemed there because he had to be and was as warm as ice... More

Good Indian restaurant close to the Hotel I was staying in but it was decidely chilly in the restraunt on the night I visited. It was a mid-week and only a few people there. We were a group of 10 and they took good care of us. Everybody seemed satisfied with the meal. Me included.

The food is simply bad. It is difficult to find good Indian restaurants in Switzerland, but this belongs defintely to the worst I have ever been. It somehow looks like Indian food but tastes bland and pre-cooked or out of a tin.

I organized my farewell lunch there for my labmates and had pre-booked a place for 17people, settled the menu as well as the price. After we had our lunch the manager completely ignored our previous settled rate and overcharged me immensely. This kind of thing is not good for a restaurants reputation. The food was OK, nothing spectacular to Indian... More

During my visit to basel, I was searching for good indian food. I went so many places. Last I went to Bombay palace, and I must say these people know what is hospitality and they are true representative of indian culture "ATITHI DEVO BHAVA ". Very warm, friendly, and nice people. Ambience is also very good and last food is... More

I have lived in the US and Europe for more than 10 years but have never tasted such delicious food prepared by Bombay Palace (perfect blend of spice and moreover no... More

We went there for dinner. We ordered some snacks and dinner, food was tasteless and quality was also not good. And price was very high. It was fully waste of money. We will never go there again.

It´s always difficult to review Indian restaurants if you eat in them outside of India as you could argue that eating Indian cuisine in Switzerland or the UK for example is about as Indian as frogs legs. Therefore, my review is based upon an English taste for Indian food. This is a very large restaurant in the centre of the... More
