You should expect a slight wait for your food, but this is a good thing. Your food is cooked to order and is the best Indian I have had for a very long time. This is my go-to for take-away too.

Not Albert road indeed and a fantastic place to eat it is certainly not somewhere to chug 15 pints of kingfisher and throw up It is far better than that. An excellent decor and fantastic views supplement food that is of a much higher standard than usually found in similar Local restaurants. A tiny bit pricier but you get what... More

Whilst visiting from Australia I was taken to this restaurant. The food was nice however from the outset the service was rude and terrible. From feeling rushed as soon as menus were set down to staff lingering, it was made worst at 10.15 when he asked if we wanted desert but instead ordered 4 more drinks were told them can't... More

Food ok, refused a drink at 10:15. The staff didn't want to be there. Manager stated this is not Albert Road! So we have a snob Indian.

This is a great place for a more varied Indian menu. Love the location, especially on a sunny day/evening. I find it consistently friendly with good service, welcoming and I love the food.

A friend and colleague's birthday was the reason for our visit and so glad we chose Bombay bay. Food was lovely, restaurant has nice views of the harbour and pricing is extremely reasonable. Menu has a different array of Indian dishes and an ample set menu arrangement or free choice - some dishes like lovely tasty chicken Rajasthani I have... More

I've been wanting to visit here for some time as l have heard good reports. Phoned up on Tuesday to book for 6pm Saturday. Turned up and were met with puzzled looks and much shuffling through the reservation cards. They'd failed to note us down. Eventually we were shown a seat in a quiet side area of the restaurant despite... More

After a couple of people recommended this place, my partner and I decided to go there for a change. The first thing that was wrong was that on the menu, it had Kingfisher 330ml bottles listed, we wanted to order a couple and was told that they only serve it on draft. The second thing was, we never like to... More

After a while away, we headed back to a favourite. Wow! It did not disappoint. You'll need to book as it was full to capacity on Friday. I enjoyed a lamb Goan curry, others had chicken Rajestani, Koliza Gosth and the seabass. Every ingredient was beautiful and the spicing was lovely. The garlic naans were delicious too. This place is... More
