Ordered a takeaway from Bombay to Byron after being recommended by a friend; unfortunately we were very disappointed with the quality of food and service.

After looking online at the surprisingly limited menu, we decided to ring the restaurant directly as we had a couple of questions; with one of us being a pescetarian we asked if we could order the vegetarian korma but pay extra for prawns to be added. We were told this would not be possible and that we would have to order the only prawn dish on the menu.

After agreeing to order the prawn dish (and a few other dishes), we were then told that the the prawn dish would be an extra $4 as the menu online had not been updated....however if we had ordered online we would still be charged the $4 less price?!

The food did arrive quickly, which was a positive; however, the garlic naan bread was very soggy and the prawn dish that we had been charged an extra $4 for (totaling $21.95 instead of $17.95 as priced online) was simply 4 prawns in a tasteless sauce - very disappointing.

The lamb rogan josh was average quality but the vegetable pakoras with sauce were enjoyable.

For a meal we paid $70 for we were really disappointed and Bombay to Byron just did not hit the spot for a good Indian takeaway.

This place is incredible. THE best Indian we have ever eaten - and my boss has eaten a lot! We were super impressed with the service too, they are really attentive and helped me get the right amount of food for us. I think the Palak Patta Chat was my favourite dish but it's hard to make a call. The tandoori chicken was excellent too, everything was yuummmm. Thank you!

Simple decor, order at the counter and they bring your food to you. Well-priced at $15-20 for most mains. Tasty food and quick service.

All of our meals were very nice, a great chef!! This restaurant has no interest in costumer comfort or service. Not a great place to go if you expect a high standard.
