Bombay Express never fails to deliver both in terms of food and service. Has introduce a specials board which had some rather uniq items not found on the usual curry menu. Mango laksi was great.

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.
