Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Took our good friend's here. Noticed new menu & prices, to be expected. Sat night, very quiet though in restaurant, meant we had gr8 service, food arrived quickly. Breads lovey & hot, gr8 naan bread. Price increase ok, except upmarket restaurants in the area soft...drinks around $6, here it's $7, tad pricey for a casual dining experience. Charge $1 for takeaway container which is fair, however should be informed as a courtesy, so u can chose it or not. Curry was med hot as we ordered, happy with this. Will be back, maybe no soft drink though.More

Excellent food recommended by the attentive waitress. The naan bread were perfect. She discussed options and even queried any possible allergies. Really reasonably priced and a good wine selection: beer on tap as well. Couldn't fault it.

The food was ok but a little bland, and everything seemed to taste the same. Service was slow. It’s ok for takeaways I guess but I wouldn’t take people there for a nice meal out. It felt more eat n run.

A while back this was our go to Indian restaurant. Unfortunately they lost some chefs & things went downhill. Tasteless curries even med/ hot. We changed to another Indian restaurant for over a year. Recently we decided to give Bombay Palace another try and we...were pleased we did. Service is attentive, efficient & friendly. My med/hot curry full of flavour and loved the kulcha bread. We will be back. Restaurant is warm & cosy in winter. Price reasonable.More

We found the food a little flavourless and the sauces very similar to each other. Small meat portions.

This restaurant was close to our hotel which is why we chose it. We eat a lot of Indian food and sadly this was a little disappointing. Unfortunately lacked flavour but reasonably priced with good service

Unfortunately didn’t live up to the rating. While takeaway service was super quick, naan bread was undercooked. Our three mains were pretty bland (ordered mild).
