I think this is my third time visiting this restaurant now in the past year and it certainly won't be my last. The service has always been good and they are always very welcoming. The food is of a high standard (I won't say it is the best I've ever had but it is good) and the price is reasonable... More

This is my usual haunt when I visit Bedford. The food is always great. They have recently extended the place and made it even a more delightful dining experience. The menu has been improved with some new additions, I tried the Kakri Lamb and it is dry dish stirred up to perfection with the perfect balance of spice. You must... More

The Bangladeshi cuisine .... Not indian, punjabi or Pakistani served here is comparable to Blue Ginger, Indian Summer and Deshi Spice ... Other very decent to good quality Bangladeshi establishments ... so no complaints about that... Where I do have an issue is with the unhelpful and mostly miserable staff who do not smile or have much idea of good... More

I moved away from Bedford in 2001 but I still drive back on occasion just to grab a meal here - it's that good. Both as a sit-in experience, where the service is quick, friendly and efficient and as a take-away joint where you are never kept waiting for long, the food is just amazing. I've popped in fairly regularly... More

This is meant to be the oldest Indian in Bedford and I remember when it was owned by a Pakistani family. It has now for a number of years been Bangladeshi ownership and the food has changed too over time. I hadn't been back for awhile but found myself there with a small group recently. It was like finding an... More

I've been coming here on and off for 14 years. I've tried other places in Bedford but they just disappoint and I keep coming back to New Bombay. Very child friendly. My son loves it! He tries something different every time. He had a lamb Dupiaza. I don't care for lamb curry but this one was very tasty. The lamb... More

I keep trying elsewhere in Bedford for a curry but invariably come back to the New Bombay. Yet to have a bad meal.

Choice, cost and atmosphere. The new Bombay has it all and is perfect for a night out with either a large or small group.

Don't bother going anywhere else. The food at the New Bombay never disappoints. Reasonable price, good service and good food.
