There are plenty of top notch curry houses in Portsmouth, and indeed, up and down the length and breadth of the UK, and, as one would expect in such a competitive and cutthroat market, there is no recommendation quite like longevity. Lucky then, for Bombay Express Balti House, that they have been in business for over 20 years, building up a reputation for quality and a local following that comes back time and again to enjoy the huge range of Indian offerings available. Expect to encounter all your favourites, from starters such as samosas, poppadoms, pakoras and kebabs, classic curries and their own house signature, which, as you might guess from the name, is the Balti. Pay them a visit at their location on Albert Road for one of the best curry houses in Southsea, if not the whole of Portsmouth, but do remember to book in advance – they do get crowded on occasion, and you wouldn’t want to miss out for one second.
Excellent, will go there again! 😊 Staff were very good and helpful and friendly! Not under any pressure to finish just left us to enjoy ourselves!
Arrived a little late for our table but the waiters managed to squeeze us in to a packed restaurant. The food was great and the bill even better. Will go again.
This is probably the best Indian restaurant in Portsmouth and surrounding towns. We always have a great experience; the food is excellent, the staff are friendly and not pushy or overbearing, the decor and facilities are comfortable yet unfussy and the prices are very reasonable. It's our go-to in our family and long may they run this restaurant.
