Used to be amongst my favourite. No longer in my top 20. Food is only just ok but service is very poor, waiters have no charisma and no common politeness .

I ordered king prawn dhansak and got something that didn't even resemble dhansak......it was dark red whereas dhansak is yellow and made with lentils but that wasn't the worse part, what was supposed to be king prawns were so to you could easily get a whole one stuck in your teeth! I queried my meal with the waiter who wasn't... More

Ok, it was a Monday night and the restaurant was dead, fair enough but the food was very average and whilst the service was ok I felt that they wasn't particularly friendly.

Good choice of food which is freshly cooked and very tasty. Staff are very polite and there is a nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Good value for money too as the portions are quite large and they do take away aswell if you can't eat-in.

Every time I go to this restaurant with a group of 5 or more family members we are seated in the annexe with other larger groups of people and it is always noisy and you cannot hear yourselves speak. The annexe echo's so the noise is terrible. There was a big group of men seated right next to us and... More

We decided to go to the Bombay as it was their banquet night (Tuesday) and it was a birthday. I hadn't been there for some years but I was the one who suggested the Bombay as I had always had good curries there in the past. The restaurant was full and we had to wait a short time for our... More

Picked up a takeaway from here as a treat and were bitterly disappointed. Firstly the samosas were vegetable when we had ordered lamb, this in itself wouldn't be the end of the world, but the mains were revolting. Both the pasanda and the masala had thick, oily, gelatinous sauces - clearly artificially coloured and horribly sweet. The whole thing tasted... More
