Not the usual chef?

This is my favourite restaurant in Bedford. The butter chicken is amazing........however on Saturday night it looked different, the chicken was cut differently, the colour was different and the taste not quite the same. It was good, but not as good as usual.

Our most recent trip was on a Saturday night and we got straight in without a booking. The parking is on the street and is limited, that's the only annoying thing. The staff are great, the food is lovely and there is a good variety on the menu.

Booked for a Friday night having been recommended to try this restaurant. First impressions are of a bright newly refurbished restaurant nicely laid out with lots of space between tables. The waiters were very friendly and the service was very good. The food is presented in a modern way and was very tasty. Will definitely be returning.

Really delicious food. The butter chicken is second to none. All dishes are full of flavours and fresh ingredients. This really is one of my favourite places to eat.

The restaurant was busy, we booked 4 days in advance, food was very good over popudoms starters and mains, on a Saturday not rushed, service was quick and we... More

I have eaten at the new bombay for many years, I'm not a regular as if you are from Bedford you will know given the amount of curry houses competition is fierce but means the overall standard is excellent, in fact I struggle to go anywhere else in the UK and get any better than I can in Bedford.

The Food was great and I had the best prawn curry dish I have ever eaten but the whole meal was not as good due to the service. It was a big group but we were very laid back. The waiter looking after us was very unfriendly and spoke to us in a rude manner. Considering it was a birthday... More
