As some of you who have read my reviews before, you may have noticed I like to eat out alot. Well Bombay Basserie is a fairly new Indian restuarant that I felt I just had to try, so here are my thoughts on the place.
Location - Centrally located, the restaurant is sitauted close to town, within a twenty minute walk. Closer than that is the National Marine Aquarium, which is about two minutes away. If you look for signs to the Barbican Leisure Park you will be sure to see this, as it is about a five minute walk away from here. What makes this even better is after you have had your meal you can stroll over to the historical Barbican, as it is within walking distance, here there are numerous bars and clubs.
Prices - I found the prices to be very reasonable, I have visited here on a Sunday for the Eat as much as you can, which was really good, for £8.95. I find that was a good time to taste various dishes, without risking trying something you may not like! Their Special Curry is really nice as well, this was lamb and prawns together, cooked in a clay oven, with cheese, butter, almonds and fresh cream! This was only £9.95 and worth every penny! My friend has told me they also do a set menu for one, six courses, for £15.95, but I am not sure what that consists of might have to try that!
Facility Access - This was really important to me, as I was visiting with a friend of mine who was in a wheelchair. The Bombay restaurant is brilliant, it is spacious and suitable for a wheelchair, and has disabled toilets as well, which makes both me and my friend feel at ease more. What I also noticed was that there was a baby's changing room, and had high chairs for children. This is an interesting area of discussion because alot of the Indian restaurants that I have been to, do not cater for children, so this would be a real bonus if you are a family visiting this place. The toilets were clean and tidy and I always feel this is a good indicator of standards throughout the place.
Opening Times - it is open seven days a week. Lunchtimes it is open between 12 - 2pm, evenings it is open between 6pm - midnight. If you are feeling particularly hungry you can try the eat as much as you can on a Sunday between 12pm - 4pm!
Overal opinion - this is a really nice place to go if you want to go somewhere with an atmosphere, the staff are so friendly, compared to some other Indian restaurants I have been to. The place has this buzzling feeling, yet you are made to feel really relaxed. The place can cater for 150 people, so at busy times I can imagine it being really really busy! Parking is also really good here, as there is a car park next door to it, which means you do not have to walk very far at all.
Come here if you like.............good quality, reasonably priced indian food with a great atmosphere
Don't come here if you don't like............Indian food!
