We visited the Bombay Brasserie for dinner on 28 April to celebrate the start of our honeymoon, and my birthday. When I booked via email I got a polite and warm response and they knew it was a special occasion. Service was faultless, our waitrons were charming and poured our wine beautifully. The starters (green pea & potato cakes; lentil... More

Being from the UK we know our curries and was very pleasantly surprised with the service ( Linga our waiter was especially nice and very professional ) the seating area overlooking a small part of the cooking area also adds a nice touch. The food was good and well presented. We had one suggestion for change and the restaurant manager... More

The staff are lovely. Attentive and polite. The food is good. Some nice added touches including an amuse bouche and palate cleanser. The dining room itself looks nice but has a pungent cooking oil aroma which is really unpleasant. Improve this and it would have been a 5* rating.

Stepping into Bombay Brasserie did not disappoint, in fact we were warmly welcomed, ushered to our table and enjoyed a wonderful dinner with top notch dining service. A sincere thank you to Clement and the team as well as the behind the scenes people for making our wedding anniversary ever so special!

I was looking forward to this experience. But was very let down The curry lamb shank had Almost no curry flavor. The dal was very watery with a couple of lentils floating about.... Except for the garlic nan, The meal was rather unmemorable, What a pity when the setting was so over the top.
