About Bombay Quay
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.
Lovely hot food, lovely staff was very nice to be greeted by all members of staff. fast service with a smile, had a nice evening.
The service was excellent - our table was ready immediately we arrived even though restaurant was very busy. Food was great and staff very friendly.
What I really like about the Bombay Quay is the consistency of the food and service. Always 110%. This is our favourite restaurant in Northwich. Cheers
Service and staff both first class. The menu is large and has all the popular dishes available. The situation of the restaurant could be any better.
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 !
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.
Bombay Quay is newly opened and very popular we caught it probably at its busiest time on a Saturday evening and although we had booked a table we did have a little wait. We didn't mind although we felt that the immediate welcome from the male waiters was a bit cold. Once we were at our table though the service was excellent and the food delicious. A plus was that we were asked after we had our starter if we wanted to wait for our main or have it quickly, as we like to have a break and often have to ask ourselves this was really good. We will definitely be visiting again soon.
Having read a number of stories about diners being rushed to leave, our experience was completely different. We booked table for 2 for Saturday at 8:30. The restaurant was buzzing in a very positive way. OK, we had to wait 15 minutes for our table, but no problem with that as we were served drinks while we waited, before being taken to our table overlooking the river. Our waiter was Ali (Excellent in every way) and the meal was both well presented and delicious. We left just after 10:30, there was no rush, in fact quite the opposite, we were asked if we would like a break between courses, which we had and which made the evening all the more enjoyable. We will certainly be returning in the not too distant future.
This was relatively new when we visited and buzzing. There were 6 of us and we were seated promptly. When we ordered we were offered the special where we could pay a little more and get poppadoms and the trimming etc as many as we liked. We all had starters and mains and as the choice and spiciness varied as there were children, no-one was disappointed. They were exceedingly busy and we were asked if we would mind finishing our drinks at the bar and they would also give us a free drink for assisting them as they had a couple of very large parties who had more people turn up than expected and they needed our table. It was no problem and we would definitely eat here again.
From arriving and being greeted to leaving the restaurant the service was amazing, the staff were attentive to my parents and as it was my sons birthday they brought our cake, a mock tail and played happy birthday over the music system. The food was delicious, fresh, tasty, just the right amount of spice, we couldn't fault anything. Well done Bombay Quay.
The food was excellent and reasonably priced, I did book on line and very glad I did. The restaurant was packed. We waited 20 mins past the booking time to be seated, service was slow from the kitchen due to every table being taken, date 28th Dec. We were updated by the restaurant staff and they did apologise for the wait and offer a free drink as well. I was very hungry and the wait for main course a bit long, I would certainly visit again the food and cleanliness of the restaurant and rest room 10/10. Speed of service was my only gripe but I'm putting that down to the time of year and the fact the place was on maximum capacity with people waiting. I have said I would definitely come again perhaps a little earlier if at a very busy time of year.
Monthly Beer and Curry nigh out with 5 old friends was the cause for this first visit to new establishment. Friendly welcome on arriving, pleasant and pleasing internal décor and seating layout. Friendly service continued once seated with the presentation of the extensive menu backed up by a party offering for a set price per head which made for the wide food selection all the better. Mixed selection of starters, mains and side dishes ordered supported by warm and crisp pauperdoms and cool beer as the entrée Both food and presentation at the high end of the game that was meet with universal praise from all in the party. Whist this was the first visit it will for sure will not be the last one and not just for those at Mondays event. Best in the area by far
One word sums the whole Bombay Quay 'experience' up. Stunning! Without doubt the best Indian meal I've ever eaten. Beautiful surroundings. Attentive service (without being overbearing). Great value for money (£40 for 2 with a bottle of wine). Can't wait till our next visit, (if we're lucky enough to get a table!!)
It was our 39th Wedding Anniversary and there was only one restaurant in Northwich to visit - The Bombay Quay! We have been many times and what I like about this place is the consistency which is always excellent. Thank you Jay and his team for what was a fantastic evening.
Fantastic food and plenty of it. Large portions especially the rice and nan breads,next time we'll get one between the two of us. Very attentive waiters without feeling intimidated. Overall a very pleasant dining experience and would definitely recommend for all Indian food lovers. We'll be back. Thankyou Bombay Quay.
Lovely attentive staff, squeaky clean from tableware to toilets, prompt and friendly service and top notch food! I was brave enough to try something new and it was one of the nicest dishes I have every had! We were both very impressed and would recommend Bombay Quay without hesitation.
Everything about this place is amazing, the food, service and setting from the moment you walk through the door you're made to feel special. This was our first visit to Bombay Quay and we had heard good reviews but it exceeded our expectations and we will definately be returning.
Incredibly busy and a wait for a table despite pre-booking. However, a really enjoyable meal and very large portions. Only order the onion bhaji starter if you're absolutely ravenous - they serve up two tennis ball size bhajis which we were informed are the largest in Cheshire and Manchester! Looking around, it seemed others were also surprised at the portion sizes as they also left a fair amount of their mains untouched. Overall, very good value for money (we spent a shade over £20 per head including drinks and were absolutely stuffed and struggled to walk back to the car)! Northwich has been crying out for a restaurant like this for long time.
The Bombay Quay has to be the top restaurant in Northwich! The location, food and staff are excellent. We have been many times and it is consistently good. For me this is very important and I am positive the BQ will keep these high standards.
Can not fault the hospitality or the food at the Bombay Quay. All staff very pleasant and can't do enough for you. The food is lovely. King Prawn Madras is my favourit curry. I find it hard to choose another one because its so nice.
Considering there were two families with the same surname who were celebrating the same aged birthday the restaurant did extremely well in not mixing the cakes and balloons up, our waiter (we didnt get his name) was absolutely amazing, he was friendly and funny, and gave advice on what to eat as I don't like spice and he got the food spot on!! The food was beautiful and hot and the portion size was incredible We would definitely recommend it and will be coming back again Karen (table of 4)
A great Indian Restaurant in Northwich!! This is top quality dining in a lovely setting, the decor is outstanding as is the quality of the food and the service. One very small moan - if you use this site to book your table they take no notice of any special requests. So if you really want a table by the window with a view of the river phone them up before you go, don't request it via this site. So in summary great restaurant, shame about the booking service!!!!
We had a superb evening at Bombay Quay, a lovely setting, and brilliant staff who couldn't do enough to help but also left us to enjoy our food. The food itself was extremely tasty! We'll definitely be going back and would recommend to all.
Shaky start when theyou didn't have us booked in although I had booked online and received confirmation by email, but they did find our booking eventually so all good. We had a table to accommodate a baby with us, food was excellent and the service too, my only observation was that it was very noisy in the restaurant menu not music just talking but did seem very loud, we couldn't heare each other on our table for 6, but apart from that it was first class,
First visit to Bombay Quay. Somewhat upmarket Indian. Food was fantastic - onion bhajis the size of a small birds nest! My main course was a mix of chicken tikka, lamb and king prawn in a sizzling dish - delicious. Staff were very active and friendly. We'll be going again soon.
Myself and 5 other friends had an excellent experience here last night for the first time, i would definatley advise to book table in advance like we did and will definatley return. We enjoyed the meal, we even went all out and had poppadoms, starters, mains, naan breads and pudding we enjoyed course after course. I can't say was a 6 because we asked for a jug of water for the table not only once or twice but 4 times.. then we asked the bill first time then another 2 times.. but overall enjoyed it. Thank you :) x x
We ate at Bombay Quay on Saturday night and it was very busy. Definitely worth making a reservation. The online booking tool was easy to use. Great service from the staff and the food was very good. We will be back!
It was a Saturday evening and the restaurant was very busy with a lot of people 'milling around' the doorway. There didn't seem to be anyone checking reservations so we weren't originally clear who we should speak to about our table. After that, however, everything was good. We were a party of 8 and everyone had different meals and everybody enjoyed theirs. The service was good and waiters were friendly and obliging. It is our personal preference to go to restaurants that are a little quieter so we would go back but not on a Saturday night.
Food, beer and window seat views were excellent. Good atmosphere too - a large restaurant and busy. Service a bit hit and miss - very helpful, but too many staff not knowing where we were up to with our order. Gave us someone else's bill and dishes at one stage. Very generous offering free drinks if we would drink up and leave the table for another booking - we had finished meals and were sitting too long (our fault) - declined the offer. Would go again - just need to sort out the service a bit.
Food and service were both fantastic. The lamb chop starter was one of the best things I've ever eaten! The only downside was the restawas absolutely packed and noisy with the tables very closely packed. I guess I'm just getting old :-). Would definitely recommend Bombay Quay
You must book in advance, and this is easily accomplished online. We were seated on time and found the food and service at Bombay Quay to be excellent as was the ambience. I look forward to going back soon.
We had a good time at Bombay Quay last night. The staff gave us a warm welcome and the service was very good. Food was really nice. We have been several times now and would recommend it to others.
Excellent ambience and service. Excellent food well presented, we tried a range of dishes from mild malibu chicken. A new dish to us, chum chum and ex hot madras all very tasty and meat very tender. The table next to us asked us what we had and tried the same dishes with similar results. We went to this restaurant having first tried their takeaway - which was excellent - we will definitely go again.
Easy car access and parking, the restaurant has modern decor, but the tables are far too close together, no privacy, and when the sun low in the night sky, needs shades to protect clients eyes from sun glare . The staff are very cold and robotic no customer care, their philosophy is to get you seated fed and out, as soon as physically possible, in most cases less than 45 minutes, not ideal for a romantic dinner. The most disappointing and important issue is the food; whilst the portions are ample, the quality of the food is very poor. The meat and chicken is tasteless, all varieties of curry are only governed by the amount of chilly and tomato ketchup added, the curry's are bland and tasteless only hot, hotter or hottest. Overall not good Indian food or dinning experience, we will not go again.
This was our first visit and we were not disappointed. The setting is very pleasant and the staff were friendly and attentive. Service was pretty good, given that it was a busy night. The food was delicious and it was a nice touch that there is a children's menu, our daughter chose from that and got a smaller portion of a mild chicken marsala, which was very nonetheless very tasty. All-in-all a very enjoyable visit and we shall certainly be going back.
Our second visit to Bombay Quay and it did not disappoint again, fabulous location on the water front, the tastiest Indian food and attentative service. Will be back again without a doubt! Thank you.
The food was lovely! Lovely atmosphere, the staff were friendly and helpful, great with our children! The kids opted for fish fingers and chips because they had decided they didn't like curry that night. Well they ate every mouthful, and the portion was big! We didn't feel rushed through the meal, but service wasn't slow despite the restaurant being so busy. I can't wait to go again!
Had a lovely evening at Bombay Quay, the staff were extremely accommodating and very friendly, lovely atmosphere and beautiful place, food was gorgeous and fresh. Highly recommend and will definitely be visiting again!
Very good food, very good setting with views over river and well priced. This was our second visit and this, unlike before, we found the service was uncoordinated for our table, no one person in charge. The restaurant was by no means full on this Tuesday evening. One hour from entering the restaurant we got our starter. Our table of 6 was arrange that those with their back to the window all had to get up when someone wanted the loo. We were offered a complimentary drink at the end, but by then we were ready for home.
It was my Husband and Grandaughters Birthday. As soon as we walked we were made really welcome. They had decorated the Table with a Birthday Garland and Balloons. It was so thoughtful of them. The meal was amazing nothing was too much trouble for them. They even sang Happy Birthday to them. All in all a really great Night for all of us.
Sat down for our meal at 1900 hrs. West facing table with full sun in my eyes. Unable to see the menu, had to walk to the foyer in order to select my menu choice - Back at the table, when our starter arrived I was faced with having to eat my food with a hand over my eyes to see what I was eating! - A waiter then asked if we were enjoying our meal, to which I answered 'I think your establishment need invest in a set of blinds on your waterfront facing windows' at which the waiter burst into laughter' ... I'd rather not say what my response was - The food was excellent - the experience was not. Graham Robinson
Thus restaurant was beautifully designed and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was excellent and plenty of it although it was very busy as it's a week before Christmas it still felt that all my service needs were met and the quality of the food wasn't hindered. Overall I would recommend this restruant to all my friends and family.
Very friendly, attentive staff and nice surroundings. Plenty of Parking outside on the shared Waitrose car park. The food was not as good as I had been expecting although I did go for something that I would not normally, so I shall go again and carry out a fair comparison to other restaurants. My wife is vegetarian and the selection was limited to 4-5 dishes, the one she chose was a little bland with a vey simple tomato base without ahint of any blended spices, she won't be trying that one again.
Visited Bombay Quay with my wife for my 65th birthday. Staff were very friendly and professional. The restaurant was very busy but also spacious. Very clean and set out well. Unfortunately, the food we ordered was not as good as we expected, especially for the price.
I would definatley recommend going to Bombay Query Northwich. The staff were brilliant with my Nanna who needs a walker to get around they made sure she could get to the table that they moved us to as the first one would not have been so easily accessible for her so. We will definitely be going back here again soon
Visited Bombay Quay last night with my partner and youngest son. We were greeted immediately and shown straight to our table. Lovely food and excellent service. Highly recommended.
Food Quality - Outstanding Service - Friendly, attentive and fast Environment - Clean, modern with great views This is the second time we have been here and it lived up to our past experience. The flavours are wonderful (I especially recommend the Bengal Chum Chum with Coco Rice). We will most definitely be back again.
Great food and great staff. This was only my 3rd visit and the lads there recognised me straight away and sat me st a nice table I'd sat at previously. They chatted with us for a while which was nice then continued to look after us throughout our stay. Can't fault and will return again
