Went out for a curry with some work mates. Food was good could of been a bit more spicy. Overall I would definitely go back again and also recommend it to other friends. Very clean place. Thanks.

Irrespective of cuisine the New Bombay typifies every thing I look for in a restaurant. A wide variety of dishes, well cooked and presented. Attentive but not fussy service by pleasant polite and knowledgeable staff all at a reasonable price

Myself and a couple of friends went for a meal last night. This has got to be the best curry house in Bedford. The food was excellently good, brilliant service from the staff and didn't break the bank when the bill came at the end of the night. Well worth a visit and thinking about making an excuse to go...

I was staying in Bedford for the evening and was advised to check this restaurant out, I ordered a takeaway on route and was greeted by my first name ( as I'd ordered) by very polite and professional waiters and the food was brought out on time piping hot. It was a really nice meal with just the right amount... More

Now the gents toilets have been refurbished as well. Happy staff and good food - if you look around at the many other Indian restaurants close by - they... More

Bedford is renowned for a large and varied number of restaurants catering for practically every person but we have more than our fair share of curry houses... this is not a complaint. No.1 on my list for great food and fantastic service is New Bombay... potentially the oldest curry house in town the menu is expansive. I have never left... More

Bedford is very quiet mid week but the quality of the New Bombay attracts people in even on a chilly November night. The food and staff here were superb as they have been on previous visits and we were made very welcome. The layout of the restaurant means that even when there are only a few fellow diners there is... More
