I know this is my 3rd review, but I really must let everyone know how wonderfully consistent standards are and how astonishingly good the food is!!! The beverages are excellent as well! 4 of us all enjoyed every element of the meal and, once again, I have recommend the exceptional cuisine served here by extremely efficient, knowledgeable and polite staff....

Ate here last week with some friends, staff were very friendly and food and service were good. A good Indian restaurant to visit if you are in the portobello area.

We had a very nice evening meal at Bonoful: homemade poppadums with great sauces, succulent main dishes with beautifully cooked pilau rice and delicately flavoured vegetable sides. The staff were very attentive and let us know when the food would be arriving and portions were plentiful .
