Doesn’t look much from the outside, but go in and you won’t regret it. Excellent food, lovely staff, and everything you could want from an Indian Restaurant. If you don’t enjoy it, blame me!

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.
