Bombay Bicycle Club
Good-quality classic Indian restaurant with refreshed classics and inspired new ideas.
Bombay Bicycle Club has been a stalwart of Indian cuisine in Edinburgh for 26 years. Decorated simply with posters reflecting the bicycle theme (the traditional vehicle in India for food delivery), the waiting staff here are highly professional in their art. Orders are taken in a timely manner with a surprise potato and tamarind tidbit from the chef to get things underway. Fig-stuffed paneer is a delightful starter, while tandoor salmon is so delicious you understand why it's also offered as a main. The biryani proves to be the star of the party, topped with a baked-on naan crown. Once broken, the aromas of mint complement the prawns within and provide freshness to a familiar dish. Complete with a comprehensive bar menu and a selection of traditional and refreshing desserts, this is a great location to enjoy quality Indian dining.
The Bombay Bicycle Club is a name which has a history of success in Bombay and has been introduced to America and now in Europe, with equal success, here in Scotland's capital Edinburgh, at Tollcross. We will provide an authentic Indian experience for you to enjoy.
The Bombay Bicycle Club specialises in traditional Indian favourites, particularly tandoori and specialist curries.
We recreate an Indian experience in The Bombay Bicycle Club beginning with a warm welcome. We also provide a free home delivery service if you prefer to take away.
