Since moving away from Invercargill 6 years ago - I am yet to find an Onion Bhaji that can live up to the Bombay Palaces! Just yum!

Another TA recommendation that lived up to expectations. I'm not the biggest fan of Indian food and asked for my dish to be mild. The food that arrived was just great, good size portions of a very tasty curry and rice. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the lovely attentive service. One of the best value meals we had in...

I try the odd curry here and there, but always keep coming back to Bombay Palace. It's consistently great food, takeaway or eating in. The restaurant is a little humble but it's the best Indian, and always friendly, fast service.

We haven’t been to the Bombay Restaurant since we shifted out of Invercargill. I’m pleased to say, if possible I believe that it has got even better. While living out of town my wife and I have craved a decent Indian meal and we certainly got that when we dined in with friends the other night. The service was friendly... More

I had an early dinner here, and was greeted by a pleasant host who let me choose my seat. Service was good, and he checked to make sure the spice level was to my liking, which was nice. When I went to pay my bill, it cost less than I thought, as before 6.30 was discounted! Eat here early guys... More

Took my family here whilst on holidays. lovely building and decor seemed quite attractive to all of us. However if you have a family it might not be the best place to eat. A pretty lewd MTV Bollywood video played continuously whilst we waited for our food. We would have asked to move but it was the "Special Eats" nite... More

Interior settings and service is excellent, but food was below average. We tried Lamb biriyani which was below par in taste and quality. Shrimp malabari was good. Naaan was burnt to charcoal. One of the lamb dish which I ordered which I forgot the name was palatable but not authentic. Nice bar and a great service, but sad that the... More
