We were in Chester for the weekend and really fancied an Indian. Had a walk around for about half and hour and come across the Bombay Palace, they had a 5 start food rating in the window, so thought it would be nice. We weren't let at all, it was really nice. Nice food and nice staff. Highly recommend if... More

Although I didn't have the opportunity to eat in as we decided to have a take out. The customer service recieved was outstanding, I have been to many take away/eat in establishments but have never met such amazing staff. I put the order of food in with no problem and waited around 5 to 10 minutes. Cam, Naz and Reb... More

Really enjoyed our food here. Staff very friendly Only downside was the restaurant itself was freezing and had to sit in our coats. We was in there early at 6pm so go later and the heating should have been on a while then. However that said it didn't put us off and if we ever in Chester again I would... More

Last resort as most Indians were shutting around time of arrival, got seated, very polite and generous staff I must say, nice atmosphere the lot! As I was deciding if I wanted to spend the rest of the night either shooting out lava from the bottom hole or letting out a few puffs, the waiter came over and gave me... More

Visited with my partner and absolutely loved our experience. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The food didn't take long and was absolutely delicious - best Indian we've had. Came out in sizzling pans so was boiling hot. Late opening time too which was helpful as everywhere else was shut. All round was absolutely brilliant and couldn't fault them.

This is a fantastic little restaurant at the top end of the city. Not big in size, but big on offering a great service as well as fantastic dishes customised to your liking. Very few Indian (Bangladeshi) restaurants offer king prawn dishes cooked and served in their shells ,mainly because they prepare then in advance. This one is different and... More

I visited this restaurant for the very first time for my friends 30th birthday in mid December. We were greeted by friendly smiling staff who showed us straight to our table. Nothing was too much and after a few minutes deliberating we asked to move into a smaller booth which was no problem for them at all. We weren't rushed... More

Back in the UK and had to have a trad curry. Very good food and smart service. The booths give a nice old school feel to the place.
