Description: Bombay Express has been running for over 11 years in the English Riviera area, before Trip Advisor was a thing. I jest, we have the classic dishes as well as our own signature dishes. Fresh fish from the bay, and our own cocktails. The Indian Kitchen Fitter cocktail served in a light bulb is a firm favourite.

We couldn't find this restaurant the first time we tried (lack of house numbers along the street didn't help). The next day we looked for it in the daylight and visited that evening. We were given pappadoms and chutneys while waiting for our meal and chose the special set meal which was delicious. Beautifully spiced while not being too hot. There was plenty for two people and the hot towels at the end of the meal were a nice touch. Staff were attentive without being overshadowing. Would recommend highly.

Went in on a Monday evening, whilst on holiday, we were the only couple in there but the the atmosphere was still evident and friendly, couldn't fault the food it was excellent, would definitely visit again.

The downside is the location, it appears to be a bit of a run down area, there was no shortage of hoodies and yobs prowling about waiting to pounce, our walk back to the hotel was quite intimidating for my my wife, however myself being a six foot brick s***house they didn't bother us too much.

It is a small and intimate place with very polite staff. It was a Sunday night and there were only ourselves and another couple eating. This may have been why we felt a little rushed, one course was straight behind the next. I know you can wait too long between courses sometimes but this was a little fast. We were in, ate, and out again in less than 1 ½ hours. However the food was really good.
The cost did surprise a little, for a two course meal for two and two drinks each the bill came to almost £60. I would recommend this place but just keep an eye on what you’re spending.

Home cooked after ordering and attention to detail with good value for money staff very helpful and restaurant over two floors so room to spread out and speak to others
