“Bollywood Bytes - excellent authentic food”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

The restaurant is a little outside St Helier's town centre so perhaps not so easy to find. However, it was just around the corner from our hotel so we noticed it in passing. Bollywood Bytes was an excellent find! Good and friendly service and the food was just superb! There are plenty of vegetarian options to choose from (good as I am veggie). My partner said very little during the meal with the exception of ordering more as the food was just so delicious. You will not find 'balti' on the menu, as the restaurant offers only authentic dishes. Our food was not greasy which was a relief as we have often had this in the past. It was possible to taste individual spices. We are both great fans of Naan bread and the naans served here were nothing short of divine! The restaurant is open a little later at night than most of St Helier's restaurants which close at 10pm. For us, this was exceptionally useful as 10pm closing time was a little early in our opinion. If you are staying in St Helier, we highly recommend eating here - you will not be disappointed. Bollywood Bytes has only been open for around five months so perhaps not many visitors have experienced eating there yet. Do go - it is definitely worth it!

“Fantastic food, fantastic service.....Fantastic!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

The food was soooooo tasty!

To start,the pakora platter was amazing. Like no pakoras I have tasted....batter was so light and the ingredients were so fresh....not greasy like many you try in other restaurants.

As for the lamb curry....Wow....it just melted and the sauce was so flavoursome....definitely going to get that again.

What surprised me was the amount of vegetarian options. I love my meat dishes but I was so tempted with the authentic sounding vegetarian options.

Couldn't fault the service....very friendly waiter who was very attentive.

Very reasonably priced, will definitely be recommending to friends and family.

“Fantastic restaurant!”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

We are local and used a voucher but we will definitely return to this fabulous new restaurant.

The staff were super friendly and the food was excellent. Beautiful spices and flavours. The poppadum was gorgeous and the naan was light and fluffy. It was only afterwards that we realised they also do a selection of desserts. I would be very keen to try these!

I would definitely recommend this restaurant and hope to return in the future.
