A little disappointed with the venue, but they got the main things right, namely the food and the service!
Great prawns and daal. The seekh kebabs were very good as well. Friendly service and decent prices.
The 7 of us dined at Bombay Palace for a special occasion. Having dined there before, I hoped Bombay Palace would exceed my expectations. Unfortunately, they did not.
My expectations for a restaurant who is aiming to be compete with its peers should meet similar standards. The starters were pretty decent in terms of flavour, but the mains were lacking in my opinion.
The staff were generally friendly and accommodating, which was a good experience. It would be good to get some consistency amongst the waiting staff in their approachability and friendliness though.
Other similar restaurants often make a note of special occasions and either will say something to the guest of honour or even try and arrange a token surprise. If you’re expecting this from Bombay Palace... you will be disappointed.
This review was not meant to sound as negative as it does and it’s not my intention. The overall experience was not bad, but average.
It was my birthday and my daughters wanted to give me a special treat. Having been to Bombay Palace before, albeit many years ago, I knew the food would be good, and it certainly exceeded our expectations. It is a little overpriced, but the food and ambiance makes it worthwhile. Will certainly go back!
Extensive menu that will satisfy all palates. Staff was attentive and helpful in describing the dishes. Flavors were well balanced and spice levels were perfect.
Top notch food and service.
Great quality food and fabulous service from the chef
Excellent Indian food, good service and very nice ambiance. But too expensive. Way overpriced!
The manager was very pleasant and accommodating. Food was awesome
really disappointed, very poor service and the food wasn’t as good as we’ve had before
First visit and need assistance in ordering Indian cuisine. The manager and waiter were very attentive and helped us understand and order our dinner. Great experience.
Great place for early dinner with family. Top quality food
Good, welcoming service, very relaxing atmosphere, excellent food
Great food and great service/ambience. Easy to get to! Overall very pleasant experience!
The food was very good and the service was excellent we really enjoyed our meal
It was AMAZING! The food was proper authentic home made Indian food.
We were a party of 8 and the service was excellent. We allowed the restaurant to choose of courses and wine and it was perfect.
Ottimo cibo, ambiente un po’ troppo scarno
Wonderful food and service! Extensive menu
Good wait staff and food but management needs to reassess their idea of good service

Great service. Attentive but not overwhelming. Food was excellent. Clearly a very popular restaurant and understandably so. Every dish we had was superb, great blend of spices and heat! Highly recommended.
Food is really great and authentic
excellent food - chilli prawns were extra spicy and delicious. not too expensive and good level of service. would definitely return
This is the best Indian food I've had in a long time.
The food was incredible. After a week of eating less-than-appetizing food throughout London, the robust seasoning and delicious flavors of Bombay Palace was a welcome reprieve. The minced lamb samosas were incredible. The minced lamb and the Chana masala were also just incredible. The naan was hot and fluffy and perfect. This was easily the best meal we had in London—by leaps and bounds!
Slightly disappointing with the quality of food at the price it is marketed at. The price of fine dining without the taste and ambience.
Food was really good but i ordered the leg of baby lamb and it was a massive sharing portion which they did not tell me about. They should probably put on the menu that its ideal for sharing, especially after the large portions of starters. Very tasty!
Good experience food is great. Waiters need a bit more training.
New Year’s Eve dinner. Our reservation was for 8pm and were told when we were seated that we had to be out by 9:30 or we would be seated somewhere else. I appreciate the management being up front, but didn’t appreciate being rushed through our meal. There was just the two of us and when we asked if one order of rice and bread would be enough-we we’re told no. We order two of each and when they arrived at our table it was clear one would have been enough.
Food decent but not great. Service needs a major retake. They ignored us. Some menus are missing pages. Overall far less than expected of a London Indian restaurant
Always great food ! Nice service! Try it you will love it😎
Wife birthday dinner, table of four. We were welcomed warmly and received well. Seated at a nice table with attentive polite staff throughout the service.
We choose a cluster of starters share plates which you don’t often see in restaurants in the UK.
I score individually the following:
The Pani puri: 10/10!, 6 pieces a plate of £7 + had to be a a 10
Shami kebab: 8/10
Chilli paneer: 6/10. Spicy ! Which we were ok with
Chilli Garlic Chicken: 8/10. Spicy! Needed a another portion! Should have a main option.
Ragda pattice: 3/10. Nah.
Jaipuri bhindi: 7/10. Rare to get this.
Lamb Biryani: 6/10. Was ok
Kulfi: mango 5/10 - Malai 8/10
15% service charge. Service was very good so not an issue.
Parking. Could be challenging. We went Boxing Day / Sunday for 7pm. Winter wonderland traffic was peak. Single yellow, off duty permit bays hard to find. But we got there in the end.
Yes recommend and would do again to try other things.
Expensive but great food. Some of the dishes where outstanding.. lamb chops (amazing!) fish curry and minced lamb and lentils. I have tried quite a few dishes but these are my favourite.
A disappointing experience. Despite having booked a table the waiting staff appeared to be at a loss to seat us and scurried around asking others what to do.
We had problems placing orders and inordinately long waits to receive drinks orders - a 10 minute wait to be told a gin we had ordered was not available and then another equally long wait for the replacement. This despite it being a very quiet night with only a few tables occupied
The food was OK. The vegetarian dishes excellent, the chicken and lamb were not that tasty.
The rice and naans were excellent
Top local experience.
A regular, that I keep rebooking, week in, week out. Fantastic food and ambiance. Best Indian I know in London. Staff are evidently well looked after by the management - I recall they were paid over many months when the property was refurbished three years' ago - and this translates into superb service. Always felt most welcome!
Very amazing nice staff with top serve food
