Secret surprise!

Had no idea there was such a big restaurant behind the small frontage.. Food was really lovely and it is now a new favourite.

Have eaten at Bengal Spice many times, never thought to do a review. Ate there again recently and it never disappoints. Food was delicious, service excellent. All staff are friendly and helpful. Restaurant is spotless. Highly recommended.

Greatly and friendly service. Food arrives in a realistic timeframe. (I pop in and order take away). I've been going to Bengal Spice for eight years but only just registered on the site. They make lovely food. Just thought I'd post. Recommend.

The only place to go if you want an Indian. Superb Indian food, great value and plenty of space for large group meals. We've been coming here for group meals for years, I love this place and will always come back. Highly recommended.

We live in Leytonstone which is home the best Indian restaurant in Waltham Forest. Visited Bengal Spice with friends that live in Loughton. Had to wait well over an hour for food - it was a busy Saturday night but a wait this long is still unacceptable. When food did eventually arrived we felt it was pretty mediocre. Food very... More
