Bombay Express ** Balti House** Good food ,take your own wine/beer!,huge interior and cheap prices.This is our favourite indian restaurant in these parts and can be found at 76,Albert Rd, Portsmouth (tel Portsmouth 821661)it is situated amidst a number of restaurants, but is certainly the best in that catagory and can be very busy friday and saturday nights, be warned! The meals are well priced e.g. Balti chicken massala with pilaw rice is £5.95, prawn madras is £3.30, Bhunas are £3.50 and Kormas £3.30. Before the main courses popadoms arrive with two boats of their special sauces with onion/tomatoe salads compliments of the chef, and this is very tasty. You take your own drinks here, which keeps the cost of the bill down, in fact there os an Alldays next door where a reasonable bottle of wine can be bought for about £3 together with some cokes for the children. The atmosphere here is congenial, a bustling, busy place with a good feeling to it, we have been here a number of times and always enjoyed ourselves, if you prefer a take-away they offer a free delivery service (within 30 miles- 5pm - 11.00pm) Our average bill for five of us is £28.00 which I thinks represents good value for money, especially if like me you enjoy indian food.
