“Hot, yes - but it's mustard seeds that make the difference”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

I'm a regular visitor to the Bombay Lounge - almost every Friday for the last two years and more.

I've had a really good Thali Lunch but it's the Carry Out menu that appeals to me most.

Great selection and the quality of the chicken, prawn and lamb is second to none. I like a hot curry but so often restaurants concentrate more on the heat than the dish as a whole. That is certainly not the case with the Bombay Lounge and I cannot recommend their Vindaloo highly enough.

Sure it's hot, but not at the expense of taste and the balance of the spice is perfect. If you normally like a Madras (excellent too by the way) try the Vindaloo - I'm positive you will not be disappointed.

General observations of the restaurant are that the staff are smart, very helpful and friendly - all adds up to a great dining experience.

“Faultless visit”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

Just back from a fab first time visited. Greeted by a member of staff with a handshake which I always feel sets the mood.

From walking in, the customer centred approached shined, friendly staff and very attentive.

We had the Sunday set meal which was fantastic! Great value and really filling.

The portion sizes were large and very tasty!

All in all, highly recommend a visit!

“Great Lunchtime Meal”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Great eating experience at the Bombay Lounge, good choice on men and the haggis pakora was very tasty. Friendly staff and warm atmosphere highly recommended. I have also sampled their carry out menu and this also is excellent quality.

“Fantastic as always”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

We visited The Bombay Lounge on Saturday 31st May. As usual, we received a warm welcome from every staff member. Our order was taken by the ever smiling and friendly Roni who's knowledge of the menu is second to none. The food as usual was superb and, coupled with the pleasant surroundings and great service, it makes dining there a delight.
