Description: An attractively modern Indian restaurant, Bombay Butler is a favourite in the busy airport town of Stansted. Who needs to take a long flight to India when the best of that country���s beloved cuisine is available right here? Bombay Butler prides itself on offering n authentic taste of India with a gourmet touch, dishes including favourite Indian curries, Tandoori specialties and less known regional dishes from throughout the hugely diverse culinary map of India. Much care goes in to the Bombay Butler menu, dishes all made by hand and the bread homemade on the premises for authenticity and freshness. The restaurant itself is contemporary and comfortable, the blue painted frontage with its large windows giving way to a generously spaced dining room, decorated in a neutral colour scheme, very modern but down to earth furnishings and interesting but unobtrusive modern art. Service at Bombay Butler is efficient and polite, not to mention discrete ��� a must when attending to celebrity guests such as Jamie Oliver and the cast of Eastenders.

“Consistently good”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

I've visited the Bombay Butler many times over the past few years and the food is always excellent. The staff are friendly and accommodating of requests for items or variations of items that are not on the menu. The food is always of a high standard and comes in generous portions. Service is quick and not delayed by the many takeaways which you see going out.

The restaurant is fairly small so be sure to book ahead if you're planning on visiting at a busy time.

They also offer good discounts on takeaways.

“A top Indian restaurant.....a must visit”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Since my last review of the Bombay Butler, I have returned a number of times and it always amazes me how consistently good the quality of food is. I generally order the same dishes and they have never lacked quality or quantity. The Bombay Butler is a relatively small restaurant but it is very very homely. The owner is so friendly and welcoming, and his staff are so polite and attentative. With a number of Indian restaurants in the area, the Bombay Butler delivers top quality food, excellent service and value for money. A 20% discount on take away food over a certain value is also an added bonus.
Highly recommended by me.

“Consistently good”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Usually use the take-away service but last night had the opportunity to dine in for the 2nd time. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Menu was plenty but not to extensive to be baffling. It has some good variations on the norm and their persian dishes are delicious. Reasonably priced too for drinks and 2 course meal with sides - approx. £40 per couple. Restaurant was busy but not over-packed and comfortable chairs (not always the case elsewhere) to dine on make it all in all a pleasant dining experience.

“Reasonibily priced, good location”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

I have used the Bombay Butler several times for both takeaways and dining in.
The portions are generous. The ingredients used are of high quality.

The restaurant is very clean and well cooled or heated depending on the season you visit.
Also the restaurant is almost right next to Stansted Mountfitchet train station which is great if you fancy a few drinks and don't want to drive.

Staff I have encountered have been very helpful and friendly.
The prices are good considering the generous portions I have always received.
I will certainly be using them again in the future.
