Nice restaurant and wonderful foods

Friends (a couple) of my housefather own this restaurant. They have many different kinds of curry, like chicken, pork, beef, lamb and prawn. The foods are so great, and the display is elegant, too!! Great restaurant to go~!!

It has a really good atmosphere and the staff are really nice but the curries are sometimes a bit watery. Not the best takeout but a lovely environment

I hadn't been to the Bollywood Spice for some time and it seems to have been refurbished since then, which was a pleasant surprise. The food was good: nothing out of the ordinary, but tasty and hot. Service was friendly and helpful.

My wife has even here many times so we thought we'd go. Staff were friendly and the food excellent with many dishes I hadn't seen before. Owner's family were there and the place had a very nice family feel.

Second visit and again the food was excellent. The staff are polite and efficient, the decor is simple but effective and the prices reasonable. What more can I say?!

Very friendly helpful staff. We ordered takeaway from here, chicken balti, chicken dansak, chicken tikka masala, mushroom pilau rice and garlic nan bread (which was actually included in the price of the balti) Our meals were lovely, the rice was very tasty and the chicken was beautifully cooked. All dishes were excellent portion sizes too. Oh and they also sent... More

We had visited this Indian restaurant before and the food and service had been excellent. However, on this occasion, the food was mixed and the service was very poor, with staff quite cold and unwelcoming unlike on previous occasions. Don't think we will be back in a hurry.

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
