The menu sees recreations of some of the city’s most loved dishes alongside family recipes. Seasonal delights, inspired by Mumbai and the surrounding areas, include Misal Pav topped with potato salli, Kolhapuri spiced spit roasted chicken, Seabass and Scallop tawa Pulao along with Kerala style Ishtew with Idiyappam and a sweet Double Ka Meetha with tutti fruity masala milk and almonds.
I love Bombay Bustle and go every week. My Indian friends all say it is the most authentic place they've been to in London!
Fab food! Dahl was tops.
Our first time to the restaurant. Could not fault our evening. Super food, helpful, cheerful staff and great ambience. Will definitely return. Thank you Bombay Bustle!
Food was excellent and great service. Helpful waiters gave good advice on what to eat and drink
We ordered a number of dishes, the starter was excellent, vegetable stew was not good at all, I think smaller Resturant’s serve them much better and the tandoori chicken was extremely spicy with very little salt. Despite booking a table we had to wait at the bar for 20 mins.
Bombay bustle is a great India restaurant in Mayfair. Being vegetarian the paneers main course, chai, daal, and the dosa were outstanding. The paneer mushroom tikka wasn’t great though. The kulfi at the end was the perfect way to wrap up the dinner. You’ll end up paying upwards of £40 per person without alcohol but mostly worth it! Will be back for the paneer 😍
Polite staff great ambience authentic tasting food and some classic cocktails to go by. Overall excellent !
I walked in at 7.50pm and a tall guy receptionist told me that he could only sit me at a communal table for 3 pax. At that time there were quite a few empty tables. Asked if he could give us any table but he said none were available. I asked him about opentable and said that there were still slots on it a few minutes ago. I checked the whole day and know that it is not fully booked yet. He still insisted none were available. Maybe he was just doing his job but I wasn’t happy. So I went out, went to open table and made a booking for 3 at 8.30pm. I asked my friends to walk in at 8pm, and the very kind lady checked what she could do for us. And manage to get my friends a table downstairs. Just felt disappointed that he could have given us the table and remove the slot on opentable. Overall food was ok but expensive. Rather go to dishoom if you are craving for Indian food. Service was good at the table. But maybe I am bias due to poor experience at the receptionist.
The service was a little slow, and the staff seemed overwhelmed with the large amounts of people coming in during peak hour.
In addition, the restaurant itself was quite noisy, however the food was really good.
One of the best Indian food I’ve had in London. We were a big group of friends celebrating one of our friends’ birthday. So we ordered most of the dishes on the menu and not a single one disappointed us.
I ate two extra tandoori rotis because the daal makhni was so delicious.
The desert was amazing as well. (It could’ve been better)
Overall, the service and the food is heavenly!
Good food, but quite expensive. Very nice helpful staff
Always reliable and good to see that the menu is constantly evolving. A firm favourite!
Very good service and food great quality. Quite lively and noisy place at peak times, so if you want a quiet conversation this may not be the place for you. Prices reasonable given the location, lower than many in the immediate vicinity, but you can certainly find cheaper places in other parts of central London, not too far away. For us it was convenient located as we could walk there. Overall I would recommend Bombay Bustle and would visit again if in the area.
Fastest service ever! Fantastic food, great sharing portions. Loved the atmosphere as well.
Delicious food and a great atmosphere. I especially loved the adipoli prawns!
Food was fine but unfortunately not worth the price.
Cheap value food, sky high prices, and not much choice....old school decor...overall just a bad place to go....but if you like to spend those £ just to say you went there to eat, best of luck to you guys..
Delicious food in a vibrant atmosphere. Service was friendly and helpful. Looking forward to next visit.
A smart and noisy restaurant with bar area, with stylish and interesting menu of Indian food, but somehow nothing quite lived up to its billing. I’d recommend it to a friend for whom budget wasn’t an issue - it’s pricey, though typical for the neighbourhood - and who wanted somewhere convenient for Bond Street/Piccadilly/RegentStreet. Not for a date or special occasion. Pleasant service.
Excellent service , with valuable revommendations from the person serving us. Amazing food - music was a bit loud for our liking , but one that was more than compensated for with the overall experience.
This was our second visit and i am sure there will be many more !
Great food, ambience and service
Excellent Indian food in a dining room decorated like a historic train car. The duck dosas and lamb are both particularly good.
Very good service and pleasant dining experience just a little pricey. Definitely somewhere to go for a special ocaission.
The food as always was great but the experience unfortunately was not. We were told the kitchen was closing shortly and therefore would need to order ASAP and also that our food would just come out as it was cooked. When you’re dining at somewhere like Bombay Bustle you come for the experience not just the food as sadly that was lacking:
We took visiting Belgian friends who wanted to experience ‘quality, authentic’ Indian cooking whilst in London. This was our first visit to Bombay Bustle too, it was recommended by a friend. We thought the food was delightful and plentiful, well presented and original (as in departing from the run-of-the-mill offerings in most Indian restaurants we visited before). The somosas’ filling were duck based, one of biryanis was rabbit based; every dish was really very good. The service was friendly, if anything too attentive. We went on a rainy Thursday lunchtime, so the ambience was a bit ‘sparse’ but therefore quiet.
Food isn’t that great. Portions sizes are tiny. The vegetable served was cold
I am big fan of Bombay bustle but my experience on arrival was not great. Having advised prior that the booking was for my anniversary and that my wife was pregnant, I fully expected to be seated in the more comfortable couch style seats. That was not the case, which was ok but when we asked to be moved the handling of the situation was not great. The front of house did not show any understanding nor flexibility and we ended up sitting where they had assigned us. But, after speaking with the manager whom was extremely nice and accommodating, the quality of food really saved the evening for us. Plus a very generous discount at the end which was totally unexpected ensured the night ended on a high.
Had a reservation for 4 @6pm.. arrived at 6:10pm and was told we need to vacate the table at 8pm.. we laughed and said we would swallow our food. We were shown to our seating which consisted of 2 separate tables by the kitchen.. and the hostess said they would join them together. I said we would like to have a better seating arrangement and was told all the tables were reserved.. we stood around for 5 minutes with different hostesses trying to convince us to take the 2 tables. Finally we were given a semi decent table. Food came on time and our server was super gracious and attentive. The manager came over and asked if we were ok... I said no because when I make a reservation, I expect to have a table upon arrival prepared for 4 and not be told I need to vacate the table at a set time. I asked him if this is the way he runs his business and replied no. In the end I found the food very average and would not eat there again. Our bill came and we were comped for the desserts 15 pounds. I wanted to refuse but I also wanted to get out of there. Go anywhere else but here. RUN!!!
We read about BB online & our expectations were exceeded in person! The atmosphere, food & service were all fantastic & we look forward to coming back!
Really enjoyed the food here, everything had so much flavour! Service was also great with very attentive and polite staff who were able to give good recommendations. Everything was fantastic and we will definitely be back again!
Authentic Indian Bombay street food at another level.
Overall food was amazing. We ordered quite a few dishes but the paneer and mushroom tikka dish was outstanding.
Very impressed with the dabba dal.
We wanted to have the jalebi cheesecake but ended up trying the kulfi trio which was pleasant.
Will have to come back for the desserts and some cocktails.
Outstanding food and service: highly recommend the tasting menu which is paired with some excellent wines. Great value all round.
Service was very good, food left us disappointed due to it lacking in flavour for the vegetable Istew.
Excellent restaurant. Very impressed with the professional manner of all the staff. Attention to finer details was excellent. Greeted by somebody taking our coats. On taking us to our table the reason for the impressive decor was explained to us. Definitely recommend this place.
Incredible food, authentically Indian and spice levels were extremely on point. 100% would recommend.
Everything was great, lovely food and service. If i had to be picky I wouldnt order the mango lassi again but will definitely return
Poor. Won’t be going back. Benares is far superior.
