“Awesome curry!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

We went to the Bombay Palace as part of a large group on a Saturday evening. The service was prompt and efficient particularly given the size of our party. The food was quick to the table and extremely tasty. I haven't had a curry this good in a long time and would definitely recommend it!

“Illiterate waiter!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

We went last week and I asked the waiter about a dish, he couldn't understand anything. After speaking to him for a while trying to understand what he is saying I asked his name which he replied Ali. He couldn't even understand when I asked him his name! I think he is illiterate! He should not be a waiter he should be working as a kitchen porter!

Totally unfit for the job!!!! A word of advise: you will lose out in business if you keep such staff.

“Good value Groupon”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

My friend & I enjoyed a more than ample meal here due to my purchase of a Groupon. Portions were large & food was quite nice, service caused no cause for complaint as some have found. We went early evening & mid week & it was a pleasant evening out with far more food than we were able to eat. There are better curry restaurants nearby but for the money this did not disappoint.

“white salmon?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

We went last night and one of the group ordered the salmon dish, described as it should be "pink fish". When it arrived it was covered in a lovely dark red sauce, but the fish was white!!! when questioned the waiter came back and replied " because it was frozen". No offer to change it, luckily it was a nice dish.

“Awful service, food Ok on this occasion”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

We had had an awful meal here last time so only came back as we still had a Groupon to use. tried to book online but that didn't work. We had booked a table but not asked for names when we arrived and seated immediately right in front on the bar/ reception. We were not given a menu and not asked for drinks. In fact we were actively avoided apart from being brought someone else's drinks 3 times, and it was only when the next table got their starters did we actually get a menu. 20 mind to get a drink is not good enough. The house wine was not the wine on the menu, but was actually much better than the one listed! We then had to call someone to actually take out order. Had we not already paid for the meal via groupon I would have walked out. Having said that the food eventually arrived fairly quickly and was much better than the last meal we'd had. Don't think I'll rush back again though
