Bombay Bustle in Mayfair with a seating capacity of 118 covers split in two different floors captures the essence of Mumbai, our love of home comforts alongside our rapid pace of life, both existing side by side. The restaurant is a place just as well suited to a leisurely dinner with friends as a quick lunch for one, always inspired by Mumbai's diverse flavours, and home style cooking.

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.

Everything was fantastic. Some of the best food I had in London. Will definitely be going back. The service was great as well

The duck dosa was the outstanding dish and the mint chaas mocktail was very tasty. The tandoori chicken was a little disappointing as the chicken breast was rather dry. Everything else was pretty average and the cappuccino at the end was poor. Personally, the level of spice in the food was just right. I wouldn't come back to BB in a hurry which is a real shame as I had heard so many good things. Perhaps it was an off day so it shouldn't put others off from giving it a try.

Food and service were exceptional, however it was a let down as the set of the tables are not brilliant and despite that fact I had requested in advance for the side/corner table and not middle table, we still ended up in middle table next to a family with kids. Considering I had to pay for babysit to look after my own child on my birthday I didn't really want to seat next to kids. I then asked them pointing at free table in corner if we could be seated then the answer was No and that tables remains free the whole time we were in there. They have downstairs too which we didn't know and it seemed like it was for their regulars, well we could become one but sadly No thank you.

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

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!
