I normally order takeaway from Bombay but ate in in November. Everything was COVID-secure. The food, as ever, was high quality. The price does seem to be creeping up. A better beer selection (not Carlsberg!) would improve the dining experience. Service was prompt and friendly....They also offer delivery. They had a bit of a shocker getting it to my place for a variety of reasons but hopefully it will be easier next time, now that the bike knows exactly where to go.More

Had a business dinner with colleagues. I was told it was good and the normal indicator is how many Indians are in the house. It was practically full and most were Indians. It didn't disappoint. Great Rogan Josh and Butter Chicken with garlic naan bread....Service was good with the manager constantly checking on tables and making suggestions without being intrusive. It's pricy but the food is worth it.More

I’m blown away by how good this Indian food is - go with a group so you can order tapas style, try a ton of items, and definitely get the garlic naan. Great for groups and I’m excited to get back to taste through the...menu.More

The restaurant is located in the centre of Lilongwe. It offers Indian cuisines in a homely environment. The restaurant offers delicious bass and non veg Indian dishes. The price of food is a bit more expensive compared to other restaurants in the town. There is...no wifi.More

I've been to a few continental food places in Malawi, but nothing beats Bombay Palace! Food is great, and freshly prepared. I order the same meal every time-Butter chicken, and the taste is consistent, so I go back for that familiar feeling. Customer service is...by far one of the best in Malawi, very friendly and efficient staff members. Its a quiet little heaven in the midst of busy Lilongwe.More

I was surprised with the two chicken and mutton dishes we ordered. Tasted nothing like Indian at all. Full of cream like a European curry. But may be other dishes are nicer.More

Nice Indian food in a pleasant atmosphere. The restaurant is located in a shopping complex so it is easy to park there if coming with your own car. The menus has many option including vegetarian dishes. You can choose from an Indian menu or a...Chinese menu. The service was good and the food was prepared quickly. Prices are not cheap but in line with the food quality and service (20.000 MK for two mains and 3 soft drinks). 1 star was deducted as our table cloth was full of stains from previous guests.More
