The menu sees re-creations of some of the city's most loved dishes alongside family recipes, from Misal pao topped with potato salli, to Kolhapuri spiced spit roasted chicken.
Designed by Fabled Studio, the space reflects erstwhile Bombay's train system, built as an offshoot of the first railway in British India, and vibrant art deco buildings juxtaposed with the organized chaos of modern Mumbai.
Had vegetarian items from the a la carte menu.. really tasty but the desserts were outstanding!
Great service from all the staff.
Vegetarian and vegan options very good.
Busy ambience. Lovely decor.
Will definitely be going back.
Great staff, great food and always consistently excellent
Very cozy with excellent food.
Great service. Amazing food!
One of our guests had a main dish that was not edible - it had so much salt in it. There must have been a mistake in the ingredients - we all tried it. They dealt with the problem too defensively without even offering the same dish to be freshly cooked.
No service, barely anyone coming over, the people who did come over were not well versed in the menu, portions were very small, very overpriced
Excellent food. Just really yummy! Great atmosphere and fantastic cocktails. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Would highly recommend if you are looking for authentic Indian food at reasonable prices for London.
What a shame.
There were a great many staff on duty and by no means was the place busy but the chaos and confusion was laughable.
The service was so incredibly slow, we had to more or less wave to attract anyone's attention.
There were staff just standing around whilst cutlery, crockery and glassware were pilling up on our table, we had to ask for these to be cleared as the staff were not paying attention.
The food was very disappointing, it was served cold on a warm plate so only the center of the dish had any temperature to it, the lamb samosas were tasteless and also served cold, the lamb curry was sent back! as was one of the chicken dishes.
All in all very disappointing
So many amazing Indian restaurants in London and Bombay Bustle tops the list. The staff makes the experience. Hostess Lisida is so warm and welcoming and made space for us at the shared dining table, great company and amazing food!
A nice Indian in the heart of Mayfair. Good for a quick business meal or then a pre theatre dinner.
Big difference in quality from last visits no tasting menu available not a le good as last which was excellent
Just really wasn’t up to much ...
Cobra in pewter tankards, Er ... no.
Beef on bone was tough, should be easily removed.
Multiple waiting staff mixed up our dishes (on a table for 2: how hard can they be).
Goan Fish curry okay but no more.
Popadoms more like skips (remember them).
Maybe just trying too hard to be differentiate and just maybe need to focus more on the food and service.
Locale carino ma molto rumoroso.
Always eat here when in London. Fabulous setting-like being on a train in India, and staff and food are fantastic!
We went for my husband’s birthday and it was definitely an experience! A little pricey but worth it for a special occasion. Friendly staff, lovely decor and great food!
My first visit on a recommendation. The food was different enough without losing touch with good standard indian food. Very attentive staff and no rush when lunch was over.
Thumping music has to go! Food was great, but unexpected ‘club’ atmosphere
Generally positive experience. Service was somewhat awkward (I had a hard time with my waiters accent) and a little pushy, but food and ambience were delightful.
An outstanding experience - the Express Menu was top notch, the staff were everywhere and yet unobtrsusive. Can't wait to go back,
Excellent food at a reasonable price. Sadly, however, the blaring "ultra" type "techno" music (particularly the unending bass beat drowning out any suggestion of actual music) makes what could be a pleasant dining experience into nothing less than torture.
That said, there is also the issue of a relatively young wait staff whose hearing will surely suffer over time.
Perhaps for some who are considering enjoying the food, "take away" would be an option (just keep your fingers in your ears if you need to wait for your package).
Great food, cocktails and wine. Service a little slow on this occasion.
My fav Indian
Dinner with relative from NZ
I thought the service was excellent, staff were attentive and friendly. Drinks were brilliant! I must say it is a little overpriced but definitely worth a visit. Special birthday cake came out too which was a pleasant surprise!
I had an extremely disappointed experience at Bombay Bustle. The service standards had really dropped since my last visit - we struggled to get waiters to bring us a drinks menu, to get additional drinks and even to pay - our waiter walked off halfway through us paying with 50% of the bill outstanding - we had to insist we hadn't finished paying and spent a while waiting for someone to come back. The manager seemed distracted and disinterested (I understand it was not the usual manager) but he did not seem to want to help or take interest in our table which was a shame.
My biggest concern was that both my friend and I returned to our separate houses that evening and both experienced severe stomach cramps and were both very ill that night and the following day. We reported to the restaurant who insisted it couldnt' be their fault and were very unhelpful/unsympathetic. I have insisted the incident is investigated further as I do not want other guests to have similar problems.
Unsurprisingly, I will not be returning again!
Great restaurant. A little too dark in the restaurant but food, service & quality all 100%.
They charge £8 for some kind of dip sauce. Don’t be fooled by the small dish price. There are a lot of surcharges that you never heard of. Maybe it’s just happened for some visitors like us
Food was not fresh
I love Bombay Bustle. It never disappoints. In my view, it’s the best Indian restaurant in London
Buzzy evening place, perfect for an evening out, a lively business supper or friends. Service was attentive and friendly, food was delicious and the whole ambience made it a great experience.
Excellent food, great service. Subtle spicy flavors. Very kind and attentive staff.
Really enjoyed our meal at Bombay Bustle, attentive and friendly service and delicious mains. The only bad comment would be that the starter (we shared the dosas) were a bit bland and we asked for our mains to be spicy and they weren’t spicy enough. Would recommend on the whole though.
One of the most Indianan restaurants in london
amazing food and great service. my only constructive feedback would have to be the music, there is no need for deep house or hectic music during lunch time if anything it is the only thing that puts me off from visiting.
Had a lovely meal and some great drinks!
Not great. Food quality was not good. Waiter rushed and made strong recommendations that we did not favor.
A great evening and fantastic service from Mohammed. The only issue was at the beginning of evening when we were placed right next to the big TV screen on the lower ground floor, having been assured that the cricket would stop at 6pm. Thankfully we were moved to the ground floor which didn't have a TV!
Our waiter was excellent- he did us a happy anniversary dessert on the house and was generally wonderful. I found it troubling to discover that this restaurant does not pass on the service charge to staff- which sadly does make me much less inclined to visit here again.
