Whilst the decor may not be to everyone's taste remember you are there for the food. The staff are friendly and efficient and the attentive manager, Francis, is welcoming... More

I ate here twice during the summer. Everyone passing through Lilongwe requested it and it seems to have a really good reputation. Really yummy, cheap food. Excellent vegetarian options and perfect portion sizes.

It does not match my expectations of Bombay Palace Hotel as I thought that its part of a chain of restaurants, one of which I tried in Malaysia.

This is a great restaurant, but a bit pricey. You will probably have to save up your money to go here. The food is wonderful. Sometimes it is a bit noisy. Almost everything I have tried there is delicious.
