My wife and I (from Singapore and London respectively) were craving for Indian food and chanced upon this wonderful place. From start to finish, the waiters (Salem, Clayton and others) were highly professional, attentive and friendly. We had fantastic lamb chops, lamb shanks and fenugreek...More

We were expecting wonderful things from Bombay Brasserie. Certainly the main course and deserts were fantastic. But other elements weren't quite spot on. The complimentary appetisers were really nice - if you like yoghurt - which half of my family don't - so not sure...More

Went to Bombay Brasserie on a freezing evening, and one of the most pleasant evenings ever. Amazing food, great service and the staff, Rahjan in particular went out of his way to make us feel even more welcome. The ambience really makes you want to...More

Bombay Brasserie serves some of the best Indian food outside of India. I've been to India and failed to find anything as good. In fact I love Indian food and enjoy cooking and experimenting with those marvelous fragrant flavours. Maybe one day I might be...More

In peak traffic it will take no more than 10 minutes from the harbour area to the restaurant. You have the added advantage of having the Company Gardens & Iziko museum across the road and Bo-Kaap a 10-15 minute walk up the... More
