I simply cannot rate this fine establishment highly enough. The subtle and elegant interior decor - with tasteful 1970s overtones - perfectly complements the superb traditional (and affordable) menu. It's a Ten From Len!

We visited Bollywood Spice for a quick curry on the way home from a long day out. The service was disappointing, however: a waiter who was unsure what drinks they stocked, and who didn't ask us if we wanted starters or sides. The meal took half an hour to arrive, and the staff were consistently disinterested, taciturn and unsmiling. The... More

DONT FORGET TO CHECK OUT THE "CAMBRIDGE CURRY CREW" FACEBOOK GROUP AND BLOG Bollywood Spice, aka The Slap Up, has had its ups and downs over the years. I have dined there for nearly ten years as a Waterbeach local and it has gone through phases of being quite good to quite bad. It was never the prettiest place on... More

My partner and I consider ourselves to be somewhat 'curry / Indian food experts' and whilst the food was good we both felt that it lacked the deep flavour that we are used to. However, the service and value were good and the restaurant was clean with clean, crisp, white linen tablecloths and napkins. Overall, a good value, average meal.

I do not have a bad word to say about this restaurant. I've visited with my partner and my family on numerous occasions and it is always stunning. Good quality food for a reasonable price. I miss the restaurant a lot since moving.

This restaurant is rather out of our way (as we live in Surrey). Last visited about 5 years ago so we thought we would try it again on our way home from Norfolk. When we first visited they were quite new and needed to up their game, so we took a gamble this time. The restaurant is much improved and... More
