A range of interesting dishes. We would recommend the paneer starters but everything has been delicious. The various chicken and mutton main courses were very tasty. Servings are generous -we always ordered more than we could possibly eat. Staff are attentive and pleasant.

In short: The food is quite good, but the staff, and the management in particular, have a major attitude problem. I have been to this restaurant several times, but this most recent time the service was very poor and we dealt with very poor, unhelpful attitudes from the management and staff. We arrived with a party of 15, and immediately... More

What an amazing find this was!!! The Indian food we experienced at Bombay Palace was the best I have had. The service was great and the owner was very pleasant. This is one of the best restaurants in Lilongwe for sure. Try the large appetizer bread bowl. It was TO DIE FOR. Love this place!!!

Nice food, though even spicy chicken curry specifically ordered 'hot' when asked was still very tame. Venue is a let-down, just a barn-like unit in a mall with no windows

Decided to go for dinner after reading here that it is the best in Lilongwe, had some difficulty finding the restaurant, can do with bigger signage. ordered the butter chicken curry, really enjoyed the dish. Haven't been to too many other restaurants to compare but the food is good at a very reasonable price.
