Myself, my husband and my parents came for a meal over the weekend. Whilst the food was great the atmosphere and attitude of the staff wasn't great. We asked to order starters first, then mains but this was not allowed and we were abruptly told the chef would not accept this?! We had to order everything up front at that point (we like to take our time and drag the evening out a little). On top of that we were constantly pushed to order and were uncomfortably observed during our whole stay. We spent £130 during our visit, the table was not booked out again afterwards so was ours for the whole evening.....we won't be coming back anytime soon put it that way.

Really great Indian food with a pretty backdrop out over the water. It’s easy to get carried away and eat too much! But it’s sooo good.

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.
