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.

Easy to book, good table. Good range to choose from. Lovely food, great service, friendly staff, deserved to be busier.

Thank you for your feedback.

Glad you liked the menu, and had a wonderful experience. January in Torquay can be a tad quiet, but that can be said the country over after Christmas..

Have a great year

Me and my husband popped here for a curry and have to say glad we did. Its a little gem that we found and really can't wait to return when we are back in Torquay. Staff made you feel welcome and the food was first class. What I liked is that most curry prices include your rice or nann bread.
Will 100% return.

Returned to the Bombay Express as I had such a good meal there a month before. The food is delicious, fresh and packed with roast vegetables and plenty of side salad. Excellent service. Very enjoyable for a meal out to catch up with friends as you never have to wait for anything.

Thank you for your feedback.

We celebrated the month of Veganuary with a Vegan set menu. Proving to be such a success we have now developed set menus through out the year for our Vegan customers. Our menu has specific vegan tabs for those dishes that are relevant.

Check out the facebook page for more information on our Gin and Grill Nights.

Glad that everything met your requirements.

Have a great year

What a great experience---friendly helpful staff, lovely food and great prices. Add that to long opening hours and select beers and you've got a hit! Highly recommended for both sit in or take out.

The Bombay Express is an excellent Indian restaurant.
We were made very welcome. The food is of such a high standard. The staff are friendly & attentive. They were happy to go through the evening at our pace, no rush. Happy for us to take our time. We have travelled worldwide, including India & this food is heavenly & beats any. Thank you to all at The Bombay Express, especially the young lad who served us & was obviously in training but was charming & tried his best.

Thank you for your feedback,

It has been a longtime since i have responded to trip advisor. So glad to hear you had a well paced experience that was to your liking. As you can imagine every customer has different likes and dislikes so getting the service correct for all is a tall task.

The Bombay Team are all exceptional and try to go the extra mile where they can.

I have been busy travelling the UK with my company The Asian Restaurant Owners Network. Held our first major event in Oxford in the Snooty Mehmaan (a must visit of you are in the Oxfordshire area). The event was a huge success achieving national praise in the media across the country.

look forward to seeing you soon.

Have a great Year

Rehan
