So disappointed. The king prawns were so hard and crunchy they were inedible and I never leave my food. The chappatis were hard like cardboard and burnt it was categorically the worst indian I've ever had.

Wonderful food, great service, nothing to much trouble and not a bad price either. Ask the staff to recommend a dish, you wont't be disappointed.

Description
Bombay Express has been running for over 11 years in the English Riviera area, before Trip Advisor was a thing. I jest, we have the classic dishes as well as our own signature dishes. Fresh fish from the bay, and our own cocktails. The Indian Kitchen Fitter cocktail served in a light bulb is a firm favourite.
