Bombay Lounge calificaciones y reseñas
Food was delicious although just a little too spicy for me. The service was so friendly, really made us feel welcome. The decor is pretty and it was nice and cosy inside. It's just a pity that the restaurant was empty...took away slightly from the ambience. But definitely a place I'd recommend.
It is a small restaurant and a traditional 'British Indian' style, if you didn't know any better, the type you end up in after a night out drinking rather than a destination in its own right. We were really impressed, the food was delicious, everything from the popadoms and chutneys through to the mains. It was tradtional but without being heavy on the ghee and very tasty. The manager / owner was very welcoming and the service was faultless. All around us we would hear other dinners complimenting him on the food so it seemed consistently good. I would highly recommend and will definitely go back, it is a destination in it's own right!
I passed this place many times never giving it a though. I read some reviews so thought we'd give it a try. It was Ok the food was nice the waiter was charming and unassuming. the bill was reasonable.
It's a bit old fashioned and lacks a little ambiance but as I say it was OK. Worth a try an a night out, not a big occasion.
We made a reservation on our first day in London and were transported to India through the aromas, colors, and delectable flavors. Everything we ate was an experience in itself. Fragrant, visually appealing and delicious. From the starters, a mushroom and garlic appetizer and a shrimp curry in a homemade bread wrap which was spectacular. Then we had a chicken tikka masala and a lamb tikka masala, both outstanding. An aromatic and flavorful count rice with cashews was a perfect side and the naan was light, freshly made and perfect to pick up,the masala sauce. We enjoyed everything so much that we did not leave a single morsal behind. We finished with the best golub Jamon that I have had, again light fragrant and delicious. The owner was at the restaurant when we went and he was charming, and made us feel at home. We returned a second time a few days later and again had an incredible feast. This time we ordered the Tandoori chicken which was perfectly seasoned, seared and yet juicy. Again we were warmly greated and met more familia members the parents of the owner who where just as pleasant as their son. Our only complaint is that they don't have another location in New York. We will definitely let our friends know about Bombay Lounge and if we are in London again, we are definitely coming back.
Went with this restaurant based on the reviews on this site and I was not disappointed. My four friends and I were the only diners on a Tuesday night so we had the full attention of the staff and chef. The food was excellent and had great balance of spices, colour and texture. One friend's dish was incredibly hot despite being listed as mild. He didn't pipe up so didn't give the wonderful staff a chance to rectify the problem. I didn't notice his suffering as I was transfixed by the insanely tasty curry and keema naan I was devouring at a rapid rate. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant just don't be afraid to ask questions to ensure you get what you want.
My work colleague went came here before the cinema.
As a bit of a foodie myself - I thought for the price the food was pretty good, without excelling in any particular area.
The naan was very nicely cooked - not too thick & stodgy.
My kebab started was slightly too dry but otherwise fine.
I had a chicken jalfrezi for my main which was nice, with ample spice.
I think there are probably better Indian restaurants within a mile radius.
Extremely personal service, the owner is really warm and welcoming.
Food was delicious, very refined flavours. I had the chicken tandoori, my partner the cheeky duck. Both very very good!
Very good price as well and a wide variety of dishes.
Dinner for 7 at the Bombay Lounge in Islington was overall not bad but the Murug Xacuti went down well. A few of the courses were bland and lacking in flavour. Service was a bit slow but otherwise very good. Came to £30 a person with some drinks which is good value.
Went to Bombay Lounge as an after work crowd of 7, and was absolutely lovely. The service was great with a lovely warm welcome and food was carefully prepared and full of flavour. Came out after a little bit of a wait but was well worth it, and it showed it had been made fresh rather than some chain restaurant banging out dishes in 10 mins.. The bill came to £21 each with drinks all round which was excellent value, would highly reccomend!
Penton Street, just off Pentonville Road, is not the most salubrious of London addresses but the small Bombay Lounge is a gem. The welcome is warm and polite, the service good throughout and the range of dishes more than acceptable. It's a fine example of good Indian fare and very handy for Sadler's Wells.
I was looking for an indian restaurant close to St Pancras station and this is within 10 mins walk of Angel tube and St Pancras. Restaurant was easy to find and we were the only customers (it was early evening!). Service was good and menu has quite wide choice. However the recommendation for my main course was far too hot despite me saying I didn't want heat and would rather have taste. Rice and naan bread quite tasty and generous but overall curry was average. I got what I paid for basically.
Bombay Lounge lived up to all expectations, starting with courteous service and finishing with a reasonable bill (and a fond farewell). The menu sported a good mix of 'traditionals' (if you're British, not Indian) and twists on the classics, and enabled a party of 4 to mix and match 4 starters and 4 mains. Desserts suffer from being bought in, and coffees are limited (no espresso). But the food is mostly delicious (one lamb very moist, the other dish a bit dry), ambience good. We'll be back..
Visited Shanti Lousiana, Leeds to sample the North American side of it.
Service excellent and the layout good. The food was good without being outstanding, but was value for money. The main disappointment was that the only draught American beer was off!! (OK it was only Budweiser but Stella just doesn't sound very American)
The two of us had a nice dinner in the Bombay Lounge. My chicken was a bit tough, however the flavour was great, the spinach and paneer side dish fantastic, and the waiter was lovely. He checked we had all we wanted and gave us a free dessert plus After Eight mints with the bill. I'll do anything for After Eights!
A disappointingly mediocre curry, and not nearly as good as many reviews here proclaimed. With the Angel Curry Centre and Rooburoo just round the corner from the Bombay Lounge so there is plenty of competition in the area. The mixed starters were a bit bland, the shank of lamb tough but tasty and the chicken tikka masala tangy.. so very much a mixed bag. Service was excellent though.
We enjoyed a tasty indian dinner at Bombay Lounge before go to the Sadlers Wells theatre which is a short walk away. The staff were very attentive, and the food arrived promptly but it is not the sort of restaurant where you could spend a whole evening as it is small. If you want a pre or post Theatre (or pub) dinner, then it is fine and the v reasonable price is a bonus. The menu offers all the usual indian fare, with the addition of some different dishes. I had crab and prawn biryani - yum!
