Great service and food to match. Some great flavours, my favourite had to be the Sag Paneer. All the dishes had their own individual flavours so all round a good meal.

Back again for the evening on Mothers Day. So pleased to see this great restaurant busy on a Sunday night. Our meals were delicious; packed with fresh produce and mums went free for Mothers Day. Very nice unexpected treat.

Thank you for your feedback, Glad you enjoyed your experience. The price factor will be different for all. Currently anybody selling a lamb tikka starter for less than £4 will not be making any money due to the net price of lamb being so high....More

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.
