Have visited Bombay by the Bay twice now and had a pleasant experience both times. We sat inside once and outside on the terrace area the other time, inside the restaurant is pleasant and the terrace is an airy space overlooking the walk. Service was attentive, the first visit we did have to ask twice for our drinks but the second time were served in a timely fashion. The tomato soup was good, and the poppadom were interesting- not your average ones. More like long skinny straws.
The food is nothing spectacular but it is good, we ordered the butter chicken and paneer makhani which were both satisfying and served in large portions, although sweet as others have mentioned. The rice sides are expensive, most are around 30 dhs, which is a bit high but the portion is enormous and enough for at least four people so if you go with a group that's good value there I suppose. (Soda is also rather expensive- 12 dhs for a small can of Pepsi)
Overall, it's worth a try especially if you're out for a stroll on the walk. It's been fairly quiet both times so definitely worth it if you're looking for a quiet dinner over in JBR. It's worth noting that my boyfriend was here a few years ago when in Dubai on a tourist holiday and he said the restaurant has been renovated since then. Apparently it used to seem rather too fancy for what it is, which is really a small, casual independent restaurant.
