One will never struggle to find a decent local curry house in the UK, with Indian food always very high up the priority list for those looking for somewhere to spend their hard-earned on a Friday night. That said, the cadre of curry houses in Northwich has just gained another big hitter in the form of Bombay Quay, where they bring the best of what is now known as Mumbai to London Road, right in the centre of the town centre. They offer a range of Indian favourites from bhajis and pakoras to start, tandoori meats and chops to follow and any number of curry classics to get you well on your way to a great night out in Northwich. Book a table and head on over.
Bombay Quay is a new curry house in Northwich, but they’re old hands at the Indian restaurant game. They are an offshoot of Bombay 8 in Warrington, a family-owned and award-winning curry house, so they’ve got the chops – tandoori lamb, most likely – that mean that their opening in Northwich town centre was met with no little fanfare. Their owner, and member of the family that runs Bombay 8, is Jango Alam, and his staff are able to produce all the favourites of the curry house genre, with more than a few surprisingly specialities to be enjoyed along the way.
The curry house tradition is long in the UK, and indeed in Northwich, and there are key elements which must be correct for an Indian restaurant to be successful. Bombay Quay has all of them in spades. Poppadoms to start, then pakoras, samosas, bhajis and more fried favourites to follow, as well as lashings of tandoori tikka specials and meat dishes. The curry menu is long and storied, with everything from korma and bhuna, through dupiaza and jalfrezi and on up to vindaloo and madras. Book a table at Bombay Quay on London Road in Northwich town centre and enjoy them all.
Excellent service and a great menu choice, Indian classics plus some that are a little different, very reasonable prices but the restaurant has a very upmarket feel
Amazing service, friendly staff. The food was perfect. Plenty of choice on the menu, to suit all tastes. We enjoyed a leisurely meal, we took our time, didn’t feel rushed at all. Would highly recommend
Lovely evening! Staff were really attentive and polite and food was lovely 😊 Great atmosphere too, clean and tidy. Excellent value for money, we had the Party deal and worked out fab! We are already talking about when to return.
We arrived early for our table, which wasn’t a problem for them at all, we were seated straight away and drinks order taken, food arrived and was very tasty, great night all round
A Friday night at Bombay Quay is very busy. Our table had been booked for 7.30pm but we didn't get seated until 7.50pm, and the waiting area was packed. Once sat down the service was good as usual - fascinating to see 4 waiters lay the table in about a minute! The food was excellent, It can't be faulted. Obviously on a busy evening it can be pretty noisy, and the repeated birthday music and song did interrupt our conversations several times, but all in all we had a fab meal. Such a joy to have a quality restaurant here in Northwich - finally! No question in our minds that they should expand into the empty space next door - they would easily fill it.
Excellent service - I had requested a table overlooking waterfront when booking with quandoo but they had given us a table in a different part of the restaurant - however it was soon rectified and we were seated where I had requested within ten minutes of arrival. The food was fantastic, as usual and our guests who had travelled over from Marple to sample the delights on offer at Bombay Quay were not disappointed and are planning another visit soon. It's great having a stylish Indian restaurant in a great location serving fabulous food so close to home !
my husband visited Bombay Quay last night on a business proposal meeting, one guy was not from Northwich so didn't know the area, the other is local but had never been to Bombay Quay before, they were both more than pleased with their menu choices, and commented how friendly and welcoming the atmosphere was, and would definitely be making a second visit.
WOW What a fantastic night! As soon as we walked through the door, (group of 4) we were immediately approached and shown to our table. The restaurant was quite busy but the atmosphere was lovely. We all had poppadoms, a starter, a main with rice and naan bread, and it was gorgeous! The staff we very attentive, warm and friendly. Our next visit will be at the end of March and we can't wait. Thank you every one at Bombay Quay for a brilliant evening.
This was our first experience of the Bombay Quay. To be honest it is probably not the best time to formulate an opinion. It was the week before Christmas and the restaurant had only recently opened so on two accounts it was very very popular/busy. In my opinion tables were too close which meant that staff delivering food were constantly brushing past you as you ate. Food was not at its best. It arrived at the table warm rather than hot with elements appearing to have been prepared earlier in bulk rather than fresh. We WILL go again but at a quieter period where Im sure our experience will (hopefully) be a far better one. On the positive plenty of staff on duty, lovely surroundings.
Lovely setting..well lit, spacious and a nice atmosphere. The table we booked was perfect. Staff very attentive. Menu had an array of different meals to cater for all tastes, and was reasonably priced. Food was well presented and tasted delicious. The only negative and the reason I am not awarding them full marks was that I was overcharged on the bill. Although this was soon rectified I discovered I had been charged drinks from the previous customer sat at that table...! I would definitively return to The Bombay Quay to discover more on their menu.
