“Bring your appetite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Just had my first, but not my last visit to his wonderful Indian restaurant. My wife and I were made to feel very welcome from the very start by the incredibly attentive and friendly staff. We were there on a Thursday night and the place was satisfyingly busy. Always a good sign that he food was good. And believe me the food is quality!!

We had two courses and a Peshwari nan. The nan was so big it was overhanging the platter it came on and was absolutely fantastic. I would thoroughly recommend this. The food was great and plentiful. We had a wee struggle to finish but we did finish! The food was too good to leave.

So if you fancy a great curry within Cumbernauld get yourself down to this fabulous restaurant.

“Comedian the waiter is NOT...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Back for a visit, same awkward comedy. The awkward feeling when you want to tell the waiter to get lost so you can talk.

Even MORE awkward when paying by card, he asks, are you leaving a tip? Oh my CRIIIIINGE!!!!!!

Last time I will visit now. Unless for a take away.

“What's happening to quality?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Have visited this restaurant since it opened. Visiting sometimes twice a week in the past and also ordering carry our meals. Our visits over the last 6/12 months have been a disappointment. The quality and standard of the food has fallen, especially the chicken which is tough or some times just tastes like boiled chicken which has been put in the sauce just before serving. Lamb can be tough as well on occasion. It appears to be a hit and a miss whether you have a good dish or not. There is no continuity to guarantee you are going to have a good meal that evening, even the sauces seem to differ in taste each time you order the same dish. On one occasion there were ice crystals in the ice cream. The desert choices menu is the same since the restaurant opened and they are served to you frozen - you couldn't even cut through with a knife - time for a change! The service and waiters are still good, but quality and continuity of standard of food needs addressing as the restaurant is surviving on past laurels. I gave this restaurant an excellent review in the past and have refrained from commenting on the standards hoping things would go back to how it was, but unfortunately I have seen no change over the months. Bombay Dreams has loyal customers who will refrain from giving a bad review if it can be avoided I feel I can comment on the standard of food as I visit many Indian restaurants in Glasgow city centre as well as other places in Scotland.
