Decent Indian feed

Great value for the price. The naan bread was HUGE and really yummy. Highly recommend the lamb saag and the chicken korma.

What a great wee place, was nice and quiet, customer service was warm and welcoming. The food was delicious. We had the Aloo Gobi with a Naan and Onion Baajis. Easily one of the top Indian Restaurants I've dined in. Highly recommended.

Extremely busy the night we went and very very hot inside. The food was great but service was a bit lacking because they were so busy. I would definitely go back tho'.

All the curries and biryani were of same taste, I guess the chef used the same spices in all the curries.

Found this restaurant by accident but it was worth it. It's not very big and was very busy when we arrived but they gave us extra popadums as an apology .

We popped into Bombay palace with some friends for some drinks and snacks at around 5:30pm... The waitress and manager (who I assumed are the owners) were rude and irritated when only one of our group ordered a main meal, and proceeded to have a "whispered" discussion about it right in front of us. The rest of us had ordered... More
