“Great Indian food, very friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Three of us visited Bombay Blues on a Friday night this week. It is one of a number of curry houses on this street, but always has by far the most customers, which says a lot.

We shared some poppadoms, then all went for different starters. My nargis kebab was superb. We all then went for a different main curry from the really interesting house specials section of the menu, which all have lengthy descriptions. I had the chicken tikka greenham curry, and it was lovely, with mint running through it. My fellow diners were also very happy, although if you go for the very tempting 3G curry watch out as it is pretty hot, although only described as medium !

The service was brilliant. All of the waiters were really friendly all evening. The courses come out fairly quickly in turn, and each time we were asked if we were ready for the next one, which was a nice touch.

A really great curry house, and you are welcome to bring your own drinks too, which helps to keep the price down. Thoroughly recommended.

“Excellent service & food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

We went here last night for a family meal. The waiters were very nice and engaged well with our five year old son.
The food was excellent quality and very tasty. We did not wait long for our meal. We would definitely go back again.

“Friendly staff great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Went here with a large group for a birthday night. Service a little on the slow side but the staff are really friendly so this makes up for having to wait a little longer for the food. Good tasty food reasonably priced and nice surroundings so would recommend and will visit again.

“Great food every time....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

People in this town seem to go to Paradise Balti over the Bombay Blue, I have no idea why why, as the former doesn't even come into the same league as the later.

At Bombay Blue, you get great food, great service and great prices. When you go as a group you'll get what you order and it'll be delicious, I certainly can't say the same for other similar places in the town which seem to serve everyone in the party exactly the same slop from a big precooked bucket of food, regardless of what they order.

Parking can be an issue, lots of takeaway food places nearby, lots of people parking (badly) to pickup their orders, but if your not too lazy it's only a short walk from the nearest council run carpark (free after 6:30pm).

Staff are friendly and they'll probably remember you next time you visit!
