Our go to place for Indian food, lovely atmosphere when dining in with good staff. You can either park out front on Forth St or drive up the small driveway and park out back. Wheelchair accessible. Lots to choose from on the menu and nothing is a problem if you have certain needs. They can handle large groups, but it... More

In all honesty, this is the first restaurant I have been to that serves such delicious vegetarian dishes. The ambience was warm and welcoming, as was the host. I will recommend the mango and pista kulfi to everyone.

Having chosen to have a meal at this restaurant - it was disappointing - nothing out of the ordinary. the meal was not well presented and the mixed tika platter was dry and uninspiring. The service was polite and efiiicient but the food lacked presentation and taste.

As vegetarians we tend to gravitate towards Indian food and our meal at the Bombay Palace in Invercargill ranks among the best. Well cooked with distinct flavours, very tasty breads. A calm and friendly atmosphere, well worth a visit.

Ate here when passing through Invercargill recently and had a nice meal, nothing outstanding but the food was tasty. Had the vegetable samosa, a vindaloo which we asked for hot, rather than "Indian hot" as we were scared that might really burn. The hot was nice,and we kind of wished we had tried the hotter version. Had another curry too... More

The food was unedible. What a waste of money. I've had good Indian in Invercargill but this wasn't the best at all. The dishes we got didn't look or taste like the usual dishes. For example the butter chicken, didn't look or taste anything like it, too much tomato or something. Butter Chicken should be creamy, not an acidic dish... More
