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.

Just visited our usual curry haunt in Bedford and as always the service, food and atmosphere was excellent as always - cannot recommend this restaurant enough. We have often visited many curry restaurants in Bedford with friends and family but we always come back to the New Bombay as there is really no comparison. If it is not on the... More

The seat in the restaurant is still warm from my presence, but I've just got home and feel compelled to share my experience. I feel so disappointed and enraged by my dining experience this evening. It was so anti-climatic. The starters were aesthetically pleasing, but that was it. The onion bhaji in the mixed grill was bland, the chicken tikka... More

This was not our first visit. Staff are very helpful and attentive. Food excellent and reasonably priced. Was busy when we arrived without a booking but room was made available and no waiting. A very good experience of authentic Indian food.
