You can be very lucky or very unlucky here. Wait times for a take out vary a lot as well. The most annoying thing is that they forget some of the take out order regularly...so check before you leave

Have been here a few times before but can't be beaten for nice food and good value for money. A big plus is that you can bring your own wine with no corkage charge. There is a very good menu with something for everyone if you enjoy Indian food, they also have some very good deals like a starter and... More

Arrived at about 3pm on a Sunday to see they were serving a buffet special until 4pm. When you walk inside it's very dimly lit and there were no staff members to be seen until we walked around a corner and found them. We asked for a table and were brought to one where they then set it in front... More

Would compare well with other Indian food I've eaten in UK/Ireland. Good on quality and price, with special deals on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sunday lunch. Lamb Madras, Chicken shashlik, Sag Paneer are favourite dishes. Lamb is normally v tender. Tuesdays is half price takeaway. Hard to beat!

Got food delivered from bombay diner. It was poor. Lamb was dry, hard and chewy. The starters were tiny. Naan bread was good. Very dissapointing

I absolutely LOVE the Bombay diner! The food, the service, the location is all so brilliant! I get the Bombay Diner most weeks and I have never been disappointed. Every year for my birthday I go in and have a meal with about 15 people and it is always perfect. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. Every Tuesday is... More

A gang of 8 of us went here for dinner last week. The food was fabulous and there was plenty of it. The thing that makes this place extra special is you can bring your own wine and beer.!! It saved us a fortune as we estimated our drinks bill would have came to about €200 if we had to... More
