The Last Train to Bombay, if a cursory google search is to be believed, is probably a busy one. Lucky then, that you can book ahead when you visit the Last Train to Bombay on Pacific Highway in Crows Nest – and you won’t even have to sit on the roof either. They take the food of the city now known as Mumbai and bring it to Sydney, ensuring a uniquely authentic taste and a welcome that befits the Indian reputation for hospitality and customer service.
Indian restaurants are pretty ubiquitous in Sydney, and to survive in the cutthroat world of curry, a restaurant has to be that little bit special. The Last Train to Bombay is a restaurant of no little renown, and they’ve been in and around the Sydney area for over 20 years, all under the considered guidance of Harry Virk. They offer a menu of Indian specialities, from classic curry house favourites to lesser-spotted delicacies.
When you come aboard the Last Train to Bombay, you will want to begin your culinary journey with one of their Indian starters. Choose from the tandoori selection: seekh kebab, paneer tikka, adraki lamb chops and more. Mains include all the curry favourites, we recommend some specials that are rarely found in Sydney, such as the Shiraz Balti Pepper Lamb, cooked in wine and spices, once a favourite of the Mughal royals of Northern India. Book your table and set your train on route to Crows Nest.
The best Indian food I've had in Australia! You can taste that it's been made with quality ingredients and is not over oily. It's a BYO wine which is always better, and there's a bottleshop across the road. The customer service was exceptional. The bathrooms were clean too. 11 min walk from st leonards station.
One of the most authentic Indian restaurants i have visited. The spice level was just right and the meat was so soft and tender. The dessert was authentic as well
Food and Service are always excellent. Great variety of dishes to chide from. Staff are always friendly and offer suggestions on different dishes to try. Highly Recommended.
A very pleasant dining experience. The dishes are interesting, not just the standard Indian fare, with several chef's specialties. We had the Murgh Malai Tikka, Handi Gosht Korma, and the Shiraz Balti Pepper Lamb. All very good. Service and atmosphere are also pleasing. We will return again to try more.
Dinner at Last Train To Bombay was a good experience. The food is not the usual "run of the mill" standard Indian dishes you get as the generic Indian cuisine in most, if not all, the suburban Indian restaurants and "take- aways". The spicy dishes were just that, piquant with flavour but not over-powering. Furthermore, the variety offered was pleasing. A couple of minor negatives:- For a Saturday night (8:30 pm) the restaurant was relatively empty with only about half a dozen tables occupied. The service was only about 7/10 which was disappointing under the circumstances. The roti was good, but cold when served. I have eaten at this restaurant a number of times some years ago and my recent experience fell far short of my expectations built upon my earlier experiences which, not to put too fine a point on it, were fabulous. I do not know whether I shall dine there again.
Food was great but twice they forgot to bring things ordered - water and Raita. It wasn’t busy so a bit surprised they forgot these and had to be asked twice. The waitress was the good perhaps the owner thinking about other things.
The non-vegetarian Thali was awesome and good value, highly recommend! The Thali include chicken, lamb dish company by two vegetarian dish like chickpea, and lentils, a dessert , pickled lime, naan and rice
Food was delicious. Had the Tandoori Chicken and Aloo Bonda to start both were really tasty. Chicken Chettinad and Nehari Gosht for main. Naans were delicious and buttery.
The service was prompt, courteous and good! The food was very nice and tasty, with plenty to go around and there are plenty of choices.
Food was great but the restaurant was very noisy I think they need some carpet and curtains to absorb the high levels of noise when busy.
