Lovely food. Kept updated. Great food
- Sophia Mash

Family Curry!!
First time using the online system. Found it very easy to use. Liked being able to pay by card. Food arrived hot and on time. Would differently use again.
- Sharon Boxer

Great service
Easy to order, well notified on later than planned delivery as they were buys, actually delivered earlier than expected, food good and hot and great tasting, nothing missing, always a bonus on a big order!, just a great service :)

A Disappointment
The food arrived well on time and there was plenty of it. The quality, however, left much to be desired.nMuch of the rice was in lumps which had to be separated. The chicken Tikka Massala was unbelievably sweet, the chicken was not tender and did not taste as if it had been cooked in the sauce.nThe Mushroom Bhaji was OK but was not a suitable accompaniment for such a sweet main course. I ate less than half the meal before abandoning it.

Arrived early
Were told by email it would be delayed by 15 minutes, it arrived 45 minutes earlier than we were told.
- Neil Levitt

Tasty ... but
Great food - shame the pop poppadoms were missing though!
- Jon

Well run establishment
Probably my favourite place for a curry in Stevenage. Ordered for collection, meal was tasty as usual, and the staff are really nice. Definitely recommended especially to eat in.

- David Woolley

Excellant quality food
I've tried all the takeaways in Stevenage , and I can honestly say these are the best,all the food I've tried has been delicious , The food seems to have a different unique taste , compared to the other takeaways . Highly recommend this place .
- Helen

Excellent, as always!
This is now our 'go to' Indian takeaway - the food is consistently good. Well cooked, tasty, arrives quickly, never a mistake with the order. I had chicken rogan josh and it was delicious. My husband tried a new medium-hot chicken dish and loved it. Would highly recommend them, and will certainly be ordering again.
- Loraine Rossati

Good food
The food arrived promptly and was hot, fresh and tasty. Will def use again
- Gavin

Worth the wait!
Was informed directly that there'd be a delay and was able to prepare for it arriving on time and it did not disappoint.
- Dave Smith

Not good
Late delivery and lukewarm food
- Susan

Food late and cold
Ordered early to give plenty of time for delivery yet the food arrived late and more importantly cold. Food was also poor. Not the service we are used to from the Bombay.
- C

Always excellent food
We have both ordered from The Bombay and been for dinner at the resturant many times. The food is always excellent, flavoursome and a good balance between authentic and a more westernised take on Indian food. The only criticism is that with every take-away delivery it has always been late. On occasions it has been more than 25 minutes later than the expected arrival time.
- Annabel

Good curry
Not too long to wait for delivery good food and arrived hot
- Susan

Great Curry
nice meal and top service
- Mark Clark

great food
the food was very good but I wont be using curries online to order anymore as their times for delivery are awful. Going direct to the Bombay is definitely better service.
- julie turner

always on time
perfect as ever
- phil green

Too hot
Nice food but more like a vindaloo...too hot to eat
- Susan

100% as always
- phil green

Fairly Expensive but worth it
The minimum order for delivery was £12 plus a 50p surcharge for card payments which is quite a lot considering I only ended up getting one curry and one side dish... however it was worth paying the extra money for as you can really taste the difference compared to the shoddy takeaway around the corner. The flavours were rich and the portions pretty big. n Also the guy who delivered knew exactly what he was doing and knew I wanted to eat it badly. No messing around, my door was open and shut within 5 seconds (definitely how it should be done!). nnWill most likely order again but maybe make it more worthwhile with a meal for 3 or 4!
- Joe Malloy

lovely curry
Good food as usual
- marie willmott

bombay the best
Always great food
- Anthony Smith

Always top nosh!
I'm a regular customer and the food is always good. What I like about The Bombay is the way they quickly put things right if anything goes wrong with a delivery. THAT is what makes good service and happy customers!
- Simon Mills

great food and service
as always excellent
- richard kirk

Beautifully spiced and flavoured dishes, prompt service
- kevin howell

Great food as usual
Eight friends round meant a mammoth order, but the quality was a good as ever. A slight delay on delivery - just over an hour compared to the normal 45 mins - but even got a text apologising for the delay.
- Ray Chinn

We had the Chicken Balti and Chicken Rogan. Very nice.
- Jamie Potter

Great food, service & the best peshwari naan EVER
This was the first time we tried Bombay, and were really happily surprised! Great value for money, delicious "proper" curries and the best ever peshwari naan. We'll make this our regular!

Best Indian Takeaway
Ordered from The Bombay on recommendation from a friend and i certainly was not disappointed. Food was excellent and delivery quick and easy plus kept me informed via email that the restaurant was very busy and my order would be 15 mins later than the time i stated which i didn't mind as it was worth waiting for.
- Steven Watton

Fast order and delievery, had everything within 30 minutes. It usually takes over an hour if you order over the phone. We shall be using this service again.
- Nick

The food was amazing although a little cold on arrival we be ordering from them again many thanks
Thoroughly enjoyed by all
- Tracie

First time I've tried The Bombay for years and I highly recommend it. Really well spiced dishes without being overly hot, unless you ask for it.

Great food!

Takeout as good as eating in
Having previously enjoyed meals in the resturant we were more than happy to order takeaway from the Bombay Spice. Our meal was ready for collection on time & had been packaged carefully. There was even a garnish to one of the dishes. Food was great as it has always been when we have eaten in & there were generous portions. nWould order via curries online again, efficient & easy.
- C

Ordered on line, delivered when they said they would. Great food. First time user, will be using again.
- Dave

just the job
Another good meal, and excellent delivery service
- Christopher Westcott

Missed dish
As usual the service for our curry delivery was a bit slow, but the food was good. For the 2nd time when we have ordered on-line, when the delivery arrived there was a dish missing. The Bombay, agreed to deliver the missing dish, but it took over 45 mins to arrive
- Sarah

Always a favourte!
We really enjoyed our meal! The food is ALWAYS excellent here :-) recommend the King prawn puru, naga curry and sag aloo!
- Donna

Consistently good
Food is always good, every time. Don't always order online but experience is just as good whichever way it's ordered.
- Paul Collett

Our takeaway was not up to the usual standard this weekend. It is usually 5 stars but this weekend it arrived lukewarm.
- Derek

Good food
Really. Nice food and always delivered on tine x
- Angela

Could do better!
The food at The Bombay is usually pretty good but it was disappointing this time. The lamb in the rogan josh was tough and fatty.
- Loraine Rossati

Always a Winner!
Have been ordering takeaways from here for years. Can't think of an occasion where they got the order wrong in any way. Staff are always polite and helpful and food is always top quality. A real big thumbs up!!!

Great food
Great food, never any complaints there. There was an item missing from the delivery but a quick phone call and it was sent out straight away with no fuss, arriving around 5-10 minutes later. It's how restaurants deal with problems that can make or break the 'relationship' you have with them.
- Simon Mills

great service
top notch
- phil green

Yum yum
Delicious food - the perfect takeaway!
- Jon White

Good service, good flavour but bit fatty
I had the lamb rogan josh which was very tasty but not a lot of meat and half the meat was too fatty to eat so that was disappointing. Came on time though
- Jodie Thomas

Had to wait almost an hour BUT, it was a Friday night at peak time so we didn't mind the wait especially when it tasted so good! Was really filling too. Prob won't order as much next time.

good food great service
- phil green

Beautiful meal!
Almost as good as dining in!
- Karl

Yummy curry
Food was delicious and delivery was prompt considering it was a Saturday evening with England playing in the World Cup! Agree with other comments that the lack of free poppadoms was the only disappointment.
- Rachel Meen

Great food
After trying a few takeaway curries and being disappointed we were very pleased with the quality of the food. A bit pricey, as we were expecting the dishes of around £10 to come with rice and no free papadams! But would go back as food was great and prompt delivery
- Lorraine Reddington

Good meal
Recently purchased meals for 6 people, great quality food enjoyed by everyone.

An excellent Indian Restaurant
I would recommend The Bombay to all as they are the best indian restaurant i've ever eaten in or had a takeaway from. The preparation of food and quality of flavours is second to none! I shall continue to order from/eat in The Bombay exclusively!
- Jamie Dye

Very tasty quality food
We've eaten in the Bombay on a few occasions but this was our first delivery. The food came within the hour and was just as good quality as we have got to love having tried all the restaurants in the Old Town High Street. One side dish was missing in the delivery and a call to the restaurant offered a credit on our next order as waiting more than an hour for this to be redelivered made no sense. I am confident this was a blip and we'll continue to order in future as the food was excellent.
- Paul Collett

Tasty but cold
We've ordered from the Bombay a few times now as its definitely one of the best in Stevenage. The food arrived exactly 1 hour after ordering, which was a little later than we'd been advised online, but acceptable. The food was tasty but wasn't very hot. Found myself rushing to eat it as it was going cold as soon as it was on the plate. This is the first time this had happened however and ds the quality is good we will order again.
- Louise Beardsworth

Tasty and Quick!
First time I'd been here in a while and decided here for a takeaway. Excellent food, ready in 20 minutes and not a single leftover!
- Michael

Good food.

Delivered early & luke warm
I specifically requested for delivery at 7:15 and they delivered at 7... Wouldn't mind so much but it was barely warm! I've definitely had better from this place so it's a shame.
- Kelly

Always reliable and very tasty
- hannah

fantastic !!!!
We ate in the restaurant last week and had one of the best curries I have every eaten. The service was excellent and the meal was even better. So we decided to order a take out this week, and again the meal was fantastic.
- Paula Coates

Always great food, never had a bad one and we always return to The Bombay. However unlike every other Indian we have tried, we have never got a free poppadom - very mean!
- S Tobias

Timely and tasty

Good food, excellent website
Really easy to use website. Good food delivered bang on time.
- Erica Boag

As always, a first class curry from the Bombay. By far the best in town!
- Mark Espie

Good as ever!
I placed the order with a deferred delivery time. It arrived a mere 2 minutes after the time requested... And the driver apologised for being late! In my books, that is still excellent service!
- Simon Mills

Excellent quality
The food was excellent, as always, but why charge for the dips and chutneys when I ordered poppadoms and onion bhajis? Other restaurants give them for free.
