“Best Indian food ever (even in Índia)”
Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

I'm a regular customer of this restaurant and have tried several indian restaurants in the world, and there is nothing like this chikka tikka masala with the garlic nan.

“Great Indian - best in area”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

During a 7 night stay in Albufeira we ate here twice and had takeaway on another night. We had already tried a competitor two doors away (Clay Oven) but this one beat it hands down. Staff were friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and really good value.

“Best Indian In Area”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Been frequencing Bombay Palace for many years but never posted a review. Can't believe a couple of previous reviews on here that they were not satisfied with their meals, we have never ever experienced this, always first class. We always go at least twice while visiting Albufeira and never been disappointed. The Karahi chicken & Chicken Madras are always excellent, lovely big chunks of juicy chicken, with excellent curries., OH always has special fried rice which he says is the best around and wishes he could take portions back home as no-one makes it like the Bombay Palace. Garlic nan always nice and crispy, not soggy like some places we have been in. Staff Friendly and service is always good. Its open all winter unlike other Indian restaurants in the vicinity. All in all an excellent place to eat.

“One of the best I've had.”
Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

I had a prawn puri for starters, something I've not tried before; it was absolutely boutique and I hope my local takeaway can match the quality. Main was chicken bhuna which was also excellent.
Only strange thing was red wine not sold by the glass, only white?
Highly recommended.
