Great food for all our tastes (some like it Indian hot & others more mild). I've eaten Indian in many countries including in India, and would recommend Bombay Palace for anyone who likes delicious food, nicely cooked. The prawns were a stand out.

We have dined in once, and had takeaway's about 3 times and we cannot fault it. Very friendly front of house man who enquires about how your day has gone! Takeaway's are incredibly fast despite not pre-ordering before you arrive. I have always had Mango Chicken and it is DIVINE! I have had it mild, medium and hot and while... More

Really happy to recommend Bombay Palace for a family dinner. Prompt service and excellent curries. The restaurant was busy with locals and doing takeaways as well, always a good sign. Great atmosphere and lovely and warm.

We have had great results following Trip Advisor recommendations, but this one was off base. Problems with this restaurant. 1-Ten minute wait after we were seated before server came over (he did say he was sorry). 2-Asked server what fish was used in the Fish Tikka Masala and which chicken dishes used white meat. He did not know, but went... More

Excellent food, attentive staff, and budget-friendly prices. Triple win. Our meals were consistent with other excellent Indian restaurants we've been to. The staff doted on our baby just enough to make us feel special, but not so much as to annoy us. Our bill for dinner was about half what we've grown accustomed to paying at other good restaurants in... More

Three of us ate here. We had chicken korma, palek paneer and chicken jalfrezi, plus nan bread, lime pickle and chutney. All of the dishes had lots of flavour but no spice. We wanted one spicy dish (i.e. chicken jalfrezi) and felt that the staff didn't explain the spice categories well enough. This is very common everywhere but it's worth... More
