Well, apart from being quite noisy and thus, difficult to communicate then everything else regarding food and service was fine

From the minute you walk into Bombay Palace you are engulfed, by wonderful aromas, lovely decor and always a very friendly welcome from the manager. There is a wide choice of dishes to chose from and the waiters are always attentive and you don't have to wait too long for the food. What I also love about Bombay Palace is... More

Excellent Traditional Indian food as served so many places in Malawi but with an innovative papadum "basket" as starter - both the massala version and the tomato version are recommended.

Food is generally good, service is generally very mediocre. On-the-cheap-Indian establishment which shines through in a) so-so furniture b) assorted cutlery that is jut plain nasty c) so-so collection of drinks (e.g. no imported Indian beer as you would expect)

This restaurant serves delicious food. Service sometimes take a bit too long. The décor needs a revamp. Nevertheless, the good food makes these points less important.

including during my trips to India. The Mix veg and butter chicken are my favourites. Make sure you order the rumali basket masala to share for a starter, it's delicius. Service depends om which waitor you happen to get, some are super, others are incredibly unattentive. But in the end that doesn't matter much, because the kitchen is efficient and... More
