“One of the best in the Playa Flamenca area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

I've eaten in many of the Indian restaurants in PF are over the years and this one is currently the best IMO.
Located in la Florida near the Abbey pub. Decor was very tasteful and modern. I ate there with my brother and his wife on their recommendation and was not disappointed. Food was delicious and service spot on, reasonable too as the bill came to 100 euros for 5 people including drinks.
Will definitely go back the next time I am visiting.
As said though you really need to book. It was packed on a Wednesday evening last week.

“Most enjoyable evening - service much improved”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Last January we visited this restaurant with two friends. At that time I reported the food being very good but the service significantly lacking. On this occasion I am happy to report that both food and service were very good despite the restaurant being busy. Restaurant is bright and airy & décor is tastefully decorated albeit not very Indian style unlike the food which was authentic Indian. Menu is varied with the Dim-sum & Thai salad as starters worthy of special mention. All four mainers were thoroughly enjoyed especially the lamb & thai green curry washed down by palatable wines & beers. On this experience we will eagerly return to this restaurant in the near future & are happy to recommend it to all who appreciate good authentic Indian food at an affordable price.

“Was nice but not as good as Buddha Tandoori in Via Park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

Mumbai Blue had been recommended by a number of people & we are glad we tried it as it is a lovely restaurant in terms of decor, food & it is air conditioned. However, we much prefer the Buddha Tandoori in Via Park and it is about half the price!!

The chicken pakora & lamb tikka starters were nice. The papadoms came with no lime pickle & the other chutneys were in modern white dishes but were shallow so not enough in them. The mains of chicken tikka were nice but the naan bread was flaky, thin and just ok. The pilau rice came with rice & cucumber which wasn't our cup of tea. We had 1 soft drinks each with this & it came to 45 euros. The Buddha Tandoori has bigger portions, better quality & would have been about 30 euros.

“Amazing food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I have eaten in many different Indian restaurants in my time, but Mumbai Blue has to top that list.
the food & service is just outstanding.
From the moment we sat down in the bright & tastefully decorated restaurant we were made to feel welcome.
Every need was met, from menu recommendations based on our tastes to making a special starter for our party.
The staff & owner deliver an excellent service that makes you want to return again & again.
A definite must!

“Best Indian I have had in Spain!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Finally! An Indian restaurant in Spain that have got it right! Food here is tasty and authentic and the service is great from the lovely staff. Portions are generous and it was so good we went twice during our holiday there! Very nice indoor area and tables outside on the balcony too which are great to hear live music from the bar below. Top marks for everything - couldn't fault it.
