“Quick Indian in Magyar land”
Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

This is perfect spot for late night snack or lunch when you want change from local cuisine. Service is quick, food is hot and tasty. Clearly won't win any awards for decor but in a pinch great snack alternative downtown.

“Okay Fast and Friendly Indian on Andrassy”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Bombay Express is certainly not the best Indian food you will eat, but it's not bad either. It's affordable, served by a friendly staff and open late, right on Andrassy Boulevard near Octogon. It's a great place to grab a quick bite, especially late night.

“Tasty Indian food”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

I found tasty indian food over here. All curries are really well cooked. The one I would say must have in madrasi chicken.

The place is like a fast-food outlet, so you won't find it like a restaurant.

Add-on here is they have a store inside where you will find many indian products like MDH, Gits, some daals, Haldiram etc.

“Good food and fair prices”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

Good place to go for lunch. Dont expect resteaurant standards. I Will rather caracterize it as a fast food joint.

Go for the curry dishes and stay away from wraps.

“Good place for lunch”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

I go to Bombay Express for Indian lunch around 5 times yearly. The food quality is good for a fast food restaurant, and there are great value lunch menus (around HUF 1000, which is around EUR 3.5). Also, the location at Oktogon / Liszt Ferenc square is great!

What Bombay Express lacks is atmosphere, but it is a great alternative for lunch or very casual dining of a different sort.
