My wife and i enjoyed the combination madras and vindaloo chicken dishes. I was cautioned (accurately) the vindaloo was spicey but what a delight. The staff are friendly and service was prompt. Very happy.

Perfect place for a fast curry in a fancy but cheap place right on Andrassy. Very affordable menus for lunch during the week. Good place for an out of the ordinary snack, lunch or light dinner.

I am really into Indian food, tried many, and despite of the fact it's not fine dining, I honestly think this place is OK. If you want to go for something quick and cheap, get the daily offer. If you want something better, try something from ala carte. They make it fresh, and with more details - of course with... More

The place has a fun atmosphere and interesting concept. However, the value isn't exactly there. In the same area are a couple of Indian places. One of them is cheaper and has all you can eat lunch. And the food is probably equal or better. The business concept here is that they are conveninently placed in the food court -... More

Here you can get a very little glimpse of an Indian restaurant - as the name suggests. There is a bit too much meat for a vegetarian (I am not one, but the Hindus are), but the seasoning is very tasty and the air of the restaurant is nice.

Considerably tastier too in my opinion. We had a meal of 4 dishes, two chicken for the kids, a paneer and a lentil dish for ourselves, a samosa and naan bread. It's not cheap, but it's on andrassy, and it's tasty. Staff we're very helpful and friendly. If you're fed up of hummus, I'd recommend this place

Originally there was a really high-end Bombay Restaurant with excellent dishes on Andrássy, but unfortunately shut down some12 years ago... This new place inherited only the name, not the quality.

The food was very bland for Indian food. The quantity of food was sufficient. Service was fine. Could be more vegetarian options. The price was reasonable.

Just fancied a little Indian food and that's what we got. Basic, tasty and filled a gap. Small portions but quite adequate washed down with a cool cobra. As it says on the tin Bombay express!
