On entering the Bombay Bay restaurant, my wife didn't see a slightly raised threshold and nearly tripped over it. I think it should have a bright orange or yellow strip to make it more obvious.
The food and the location are hard to beat, at modest prices too, and the service is excellent.

Great tasty curry in a picturesque spot. Our 6 year old loved her onion barghi and popadoms with pickle tray. Best curry I’ve had for a while!
The children’s surprise ice cream wasn’t very nice though tastes artificial.
Would be better to use normal ice cream with a kinder egg. It would be better quality.

Having had the boat based in Southsea for a while, it was always great to come in to see Hussain and the guys. They are always friendly, helpful and will do anything for you.

Highly recommended! Very tasty food and a great location. We were visiting the area and called in by chance. If we lived closer we would be regular customers.

Party of 7 booked in for special family meal. Waited nearly 15 minutes past booking time to be seated, table clearly not ready. Had to repeatedly ask for cutlery, for door to be shut as it was cold too. Hot plates had to be handed down the table as waiter couldn’t access so all in all service was not up to scratch. Chipped crockery as well. Food itself was somewhat disappointing. Several of us felt meals were very salty. Mushroom rice just had whole mushrooms in it rather than sliced and worked through the rice as you might usually see it served. All of us felt underwhelmed by the food in contrast to super meals we have enjoyed previously. Despite fantastic location it’s unlikely we will rush back.
