“Great value and friendly staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Myself and friends visited on Thursday evening and had the £8.95 buffet. Loved the mixed starter which was included in the price and served at the table before the main buffet. The main buffet had a lot choice and was all tasty. Nan breads and poppadums were an extra charge but to be honest there was more than enough food without these. The staff were all helpful and friendly especially Abdul who spent time to come and chat to us as it was our first visit. Will definitely return in the future.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

Been here a few times now and we are never disappointed. The food is fantastic and the staff are outstanding, they cannot help you enough. We had the buffet, love the starters as always and a nice selection of dishes on the buffet. Anybody that loves Indian food should give the Bombay Palace a try. Abdul the manager and his staff will look after you we'll and even after your meal you can chill in the lounge with refreshments and even try a shisha. Nice clean comfortable place to eat and just relax. Give it a go.

“OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Had a very pleasant meal in the Bombay Palace on Friday evening. It was very quiet so I don't know whether it's one of those places that's get busier at the tail end of the evening or whether it's because it is a bit off the beaten track. Anyway, a nice meal served by attentive staff.
