Tried to book a table at 7.30 but was asked to make it 6.45, so dutifully pitched up on time. Then we waited, standing up (in everyone's way) for an hour before a table was available. Not offered any drink or anything while we waited - staff either indifferent or giving that slight shrug look. Only waited that long because... More

Bombay cottage is a very well run, family restaurant. Staff are always exceptionally courteous and there's never a huge wait for your food. Food is fresh and the menu has a lot of variety. This is our "Go to" Indian in stamford. Takeaway is also just as good. Keep up the good work guys

We've been going for years and it's always been nice and we'll priced. This time was no exception. It's the only place we go when we want an Indian.

Despite being (what looked like) full on a busy Saturday night they still managed to offer us a table. The service was great - lots of young staff as well as the guys who either owned or were managing on the night. The food was fab - no complaints at all and the complimentary drinks at the end were a... More

The food here is always very good and the staff attentive. This time we tried the Sunday buffet which offered 3 starters and 4 mains plus side dishes. We are always made to feel welcomed and this time they took care of more vegan daughter, with dishes from the main menu. Always pleased to recommend this place.

I took a good friend of mine to The Bombay Cottage for a birthday treat dinner. The restaurant is very crisp clean and laid out tastefully with tables dressed to a high standard. The menu was extensive with all the usual Indian Restaurant favourites plus plenty of special dishes too. We had Poppadoms, onion bhaji and 3 main dishes (2... More

My husband ordered Chicken Jhalfrezi & he says it's the hottest meal he's had in a long time. I ordered vegetable Dansak and it was so tasty I wanted to eat it... More
