We were in Torquay for a long weekend with family and found this Indian restaurant so decided to order for delivery. Unfortunately the taste and quality of food was terrible. There was no taste and naan was too chewy and not cooked properly.More

Enjoyed our meals in a clean, pleasant atmosphere, superb staff, with decent food. All the ingredients required for a great meal. One point knocked off for the standard of the draught lager, have the bottled stuff. Would definitely eat here again.

Bombay Express has been running for over 11 years in the English Riviera area, before Trip Advisor was a thing. I jest, we have the classic dishes as well as our own signature dishes. Fresh fish from the bay, and our own cocktails. The Indian Kitchen Fitter cocktail served in a light bulb is a firm favourite.
