the restaurant is great looking, but often not very full and this reflects in the atmosphere inside the restaurant. the food is good but not inspiring and service is ok. considering the competition this restaurant has within the high street (approx 7-8 other indian choices!) this could be so much better!

Absolutely love this place! Been a few times now, as I'd been trying to find a nice indian. This is definitely the place, food is superb and staff are really attentive. Very reasonably priced too!

If its good quality food your looking for this is the place to go . I had a simple starter and a basic curry of chicken tikka dansak. I didn't have the usual pint of cobra as i think £4 plus a pint is a rip off. But if your looking for a happy smiling 'welcoming face forget it .a... More

Quiet as before, but we were joined by two workers who seemed to have ordered their meal in advance as it was served almost immediately. Our service was pretty good too. Decided not to have popadums this time (I see I didn't rate the chutneys last time). Predictably my daughter chose lamb pasanda but I went for achari chicken off... More

Had a meal here last week and as soon as 4 of us got seated they put in a 2 seated table which was resting on the back of 2 of the chairs we were sitting on. This meant our elbows were going straight into the curry's of the table behind - There was no way 2 of us was... More

Had a meal here 11/3/14 and the food was quite nice. However, despite advertising coke on the outside menu and on their website for £2.75 for 2 litres, we were charged £15.60 for 4 pints of coke. The waiter said they did not have 2 litre bottles. £3.90 for a pint of coke seemed expensive and would discourage us from... More

One of the best Indian takeaways in Stevenage. We've lived here for 10 years and pretty much tried all of them in that time. This was the first time we tried the Bombay and we were pleasantly surprised at the speed and quality of the food. We'll definitely order again.

We were very frequent visitors to this restaurant when we lived in Stevenage. Returning for a visit after 14 years, we didn't know if it was still there, but it was, having moved a few doors up the street. The food is amazing and seriously great value for money. Service was excellent, staff were friendly and efficient. Can't wait to... More

Four stars is probably pushing it for this High Street curry house but I'm feeling good today and decided to err on the side of positivity (three and a half would have been my call). We had a very flavoursome meal here, good sized portions and decent service. We've eaten here many times in the past but as is so... More
