Back again for the evening on Mothers Day. So pleased to see this great restaurant busy on a Sunday night. Our meals were delicious; packed with fresh produce and mums went free for Mothers Day. Very nice unexpected treat.

The staff are really efficient and service was very speedy. The menu is limited compared to most places but there is still a reasonable choice. The starter I chose was very good but the Tandoori Mixed Grill was decidedly average.More

Bombay Express has been running for over 11 years in the English Riviera area, before Trip Advisor was a thing. I jest, we have the classic dishes as well as our own signature dishes. Fresh fish from the bay, and our own cocktails. The Indian Kitchen Fitter cocktail served in a light bulb is a firm favourite.
