We came to have dinner after reading the reviews and we were not disappointed. The food was absolutely delicious! The portions are quite big so you can even order one dish to share (especially handy if you’re on a budget). The staff is super friendly and they always welcome you with a smile. This restaurant is a MUST if you are in Lipe :)

We eat a lot of Indian, so this is a very big statement! Everytime we go for dinner here we are very satisfied and never dissapointed. We have eaten at this restaurant several times and the level of quality and service for the price is top notch. All of the staff are super friendly and they have gotten to know us during our time here and always wave when they see us and remember what we like to order. The chicken jalfrezi is amazing! The curries are so big they feed two easily. We always get a garlic naan and they make it fresh in the tandoor at the front of the shops. Definitely come here on your trip to Ko Lipe, you won’t be disappointed!

The reviews on TA were very good, so we decided to have dinner here. It can easily be found in the center of Koh Lipe's town. Atmosphere is ok, but the food is awesome. Staff was helpful in suggesting which dishes to pick as we could not make a choice, everything sounded too delicious! Especially surprised by the potato dumpling curry

After reading all the positive reviews we were really looking forward to the meal here. The restaurant was full and we were expecting great things. Unfortunately the curry was pretty poor - the vegetable korma was very bland and tasted like a vegetable soup. The butter chicken was also a bit soupy, tomatoey and the more you ate it became too sickly. After eating at some incredible Indian restaurants in Thailand we were looking forward to great things, however the currys here were very poor. We are almost confused if we had arrived at the wrong place after reading the reviews On the plus side, the staff were pleasant and the naans were quite good. Hopefully we just visited on a day where there was a different chef or something, but would definitely not recommend this place

Worst service ever! We are family with to small children. Anyone with small children knows that when the kids are hungry they can’t wait very long time before all hell breaks loose 😳 We went here ordered and then we waited; and waited when I went up to them after 30 minutes asking where my drink was they said it would come. 13 minutes after still no drink. We where about to leave when one of the waiters said that it would come in about 2 minutes. 2 minutes later still no drink nor food. We left that place and went somewhere else. I have never in my life had such a bad experience. I can’t recommend this place to anyone.

Based on reviews we visited on our first night. Place was packed, good sign. Went and had a beer to return 30 mins later. We waited for a table but were not acknowledged by any member of staff. We self secured our table after about 10 minutes. Still not acknowledged by any of their many staff and had to wave arms to get a menu. Food took an age to come and we had to chase it up as people who arrived after us were finishing their second course where we hadn't received anything. Food itself was pleasing though over salted, naans were very good. Disappointing experience primarily due to arrogant and off-hand staff. Not again for us.

Bombay Indian Restaurant made our recent 2-week stay on Koh Lipe one of the most enjoyable and special vacations we ever had in Thailand. We honestly can say that we were overwhelmed by the kind hospitality of the family-owned restaurant. All food choices are amazingly delicious and served in generous, big portions. The food has never been greasy. On the contrary, the food's creamy consistency and healthy ingredients make every dish a great option, especially for vegetarians. We went to the restaurant multiple times and consider eating at Bombay Indian Restaurant as best value for money on the island. We particularly enjoyed the many varieties of daal, vegetable samosas (with a most delicious mint sauce), and butter chicken. Whatever you order, you won't regret it! While many restaurants closed on the island since 2020, Bombay Indian Restaurant stayed open to serve the guest community with great commitment. We've loved Indian food for over 25 years, but Bombay Indian Restaurant beats it all!

Me and a friend went to the restaurant as per google recommendation and my love for Indian food. Best decision possible. The owner is very friendly and his food is authentic and delicious. I honestly was in awe with his dishes. They were fresh and full of flavour. I could taste the spices in the dishes as if they were recently picked and cooked. First night I had the Butter masala and on the second night the Chicken Rogan Josh. Both dishes I had with fresh garlic nan. Both dishes were wonderful. The nan was fresh and delicious. Dishes can come mild or spicy, however it's requested. If you're in Koh Lipe, you MUST visit this restaurant. You will not be disappointed. Me and my friend immediately declared the best meal of the holiday so far.

I recently visited Ko Lipe and was craving some Indian food so I decided to try out the Bombay Indian Restaurant. The owner and his wife, both Indian, provided excellent hospitality and delicious food. The food tasted authentic and they gave good size portions for the cost. If you are interested in Indian food, I highly recommend this restaurant!

This restaurant is a reason on its own to visit koh lipe. Wonderfull indian food on its best. Fresly baked naans, curry's so full of flavour.. NOMNOMNOM You can taste the love for good food in each dish. Mind, it can get very busy considering its the best indian food of the island (and mainland) The staff works very very hard, are very friendly and kind, and no matter how full the restaurant is, and how big the cue outside waiting for a table, they allways have a smile for you, the regular staff. The headcheff/owner? is allso very nice, after service he comes out off the kitchen and has chat with the remaining costumers. Good choice for both, meatlovers and vegetariens of course. Clean, not expensive and damm good tasty food that will you dream about at home when your holiday is over.

Excellent Indian restaurant with friendly staff and really good food. We ate here several time during our stay. The mango lassies are to die for and the wifi worked well. The naan bread is prepare in an oven at the entrance and were top class as well.

The food is fresh and authentic and this is a cosy family run resteraunt with friendly reception. The chicken jalfrezi, chicken keema, aloo gohbi, aloo palak were all served in generous portions with delicate ginger and fried mustard seed garnish... The naan bread is some of the best Ive eaten and is made right in front of you in the tandoor oven at the front of the resteraunt. Peshwari naan highly recommended. Finished it all off with a perfect banana roti and hand made masala tea. the perfect finish to a day in paaradise! This is surely the best Indian food in Koh Lipe!

What a revelation. The place was packed and very hot. The staff were super busy, but super nice. The young lad who served us was so overworked but kept smiling. He was helping them out so lucky them. Be warned, it’s a good wait for food, buy oh my the food——- so flavoursome and so generous. We were stuffed! Vege Samosas, beef masala and rice, alloo palak and of course their famous naan. All wonderful. We hope to go back before we leave Lipe. Please go.

The food was spot on delicious and the staff couldn’t have been more kind. Definitely must stop here when you visit Koh Lipe. The Palak Paneer was delicious and they make it according to your spice preference. And the chicken tikka masala was very good. Very cool to also see them make the naan in the front of the restaurant.
