Thanks for your feedback. We discussed this on the phone the night of new years eve. Where you had ordered the first two orders for collection and the final third one for delivery. Which is what you wanted. Seems to me you got it wrong twice in the first instance and third time lucky in the end. Now you also... More

For several years now I have been 'a regular' (or as regular as you can be when you are 265 miles away!) at the Bombay Express. Our latest visit between Christmas and new year as per usual did not disappoint. The table for 3 was booked easily in advance through the restaurants website - it still amazes me the number... More

Excellent food, friendly attentive staff. We both enjoyed our meals -garlic chilli chicken, murgh masala with mushroom rice & keema naan. Food arrived piping hot & nicely presented, hot plates too. A very nice evening thank you

It's hard to say anything good about this restaurant. The food is just stuffed with sugar. Everything is disgustingly sweet. The onion bhajee starter is a hard crispy biscuit and nothing like any you have tried before, The staff don't know their own product as all questions are met with 'I'll go and ask' responses.The front of the restaurant has...

So you are called Uncompromiser3, you have left one review on tripadvisor ever. You have timelined the length of time the scaffold has been erected at the front of the building, guessing it is just for the sign replacement when major structural work has taken place replacing supporting beams to the building. Taking a wild guess at the Bombay Express... More

A nice dinner for one, the restaurant is a nice place with friendly staff. The meal was tasty & enjoyable, there was nothing wrong with it, it just lacked a little something. On saying that, I ate it all & enjoyed it. Would I return - possibly not, I will try others first

We went here at the start of the month for a family meal. The menu was small! But they were more than happy to make me what I wanted for my main. For the started we had a sharing bread. Which was really nice. The staff were really friendly and chatty and made it lovely
