“Sweet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Spur of the moment booking as our usual Indian was closed at the time we were passing. Simple exterior, smart interior, very welcoming, attractive place settings. Menu was interesting with several unusual choices, the meals were serve 'on the plate' which is a first for me. Food was attractively presented.
We enjoyed the meals in the most part however, we felt that the meals were a little too sweet, particularly the tandoori mixed grill which was served covered in a sweet sticky sauce (another first). We all (4) felt that the meals lacked 'chilli' bite. They were supposed to be medium hot but were the mildest 'mediums' we had ever eaten. We, none of us, like food to be over hot but these were just a little too mild for our taste. All this said, the food was very tasty and well prepared.
Service was faultless and prompt.
Restaurant is rather small, and was rather noisy during our visit but that can vary from hour to hour/day to day.
Would we visit again? Possibly not as food is always a personal thing and this was just a little too sweet for us.

Thank you for your kind review, I am really sorry that you felt that the meals were a little too sweet, I'm even more sorry that you didn't raise these issues with us while we asked how was your food.

It seems such a shame to me that you would pay for your food that you did not like and rather than discuss with us in person you chose to write a average review on TripAdvisor.

Writing a review dose not resolve the problem. I understand you did not like the food what you have ordered but we do lots of medium hot dish which is we could happily change it for you.

If you would like to talk to me, please do not hesitate to contact me at the Bombay Dreams.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Interesting and varied menu, much more on offer than the standard fare. Food beautifully presented, fresh and well balanced all washed down with cool draft Cobra. Staff friendly, attentive giving a warm welcome. Banquet deal excellent value. High standards have maintained from the day it opened and its still fantastic. A great evening.

“"Not your average indian"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Visited this restaurant for the 1st time after reading the good reviews. We were not disappointed, the food was fabulous. The staff were friendly and the service excellent.
The contemporary décor was very nice.
We thought it was very fairly priced as were the drinks which is unusual these days, the meal was ended with a complimentary drink.

The only negative was the fact the toilets were upstairs which you need to be aware of if you have mobility problems.
