The New Bombay is a smart restaurant with a good menu. I found the food to be excellent having the sesame prawns followed by a lamb dish where the meat was really tender. I would definitely eat there again

The food was good and tasty but found the service to be a little poor. Which is a shame as the atmosphere is good. Just need to sharpen up on the service that's all

Food at new Bombay was very tasty, we ordered King prawn balti and a lamb dansak, and I must say the lamb was the best lamb curry I've had in any Indian restaurant.
