Large Group Meal

11 of us descended on Lakeland Spice on Saturday evening. The Staff were great and the food was quickly served and great quality. A group of 11 is never easy to deal with but the staff coped well and it is certainly worthy of a visit. Perhaps a little on the pricey side!

I think this is the only Indian restaurant in Keswick, well it was the only one that came up on our google search. i went with friends on a few days away. The restaurant was ok, and food mediocre, we did feel that the staff tried to rush us off our table once we had eaten although we still had... More

This place is appalling. I was sat in the back of the restaurant next to the fire escape, and all I could see was what looked like mould on the side of the windows and walls, which had not had any type of cleaning in a while. Food not that great. The owners should take a good look at this... More

I believe this is the only indian in Keswick, and that's probably the only reason why it's surviving. The service was attentive, the quality of the food was not good. The chef most definately did not pay attention to what he was cooking. Curry was bland, the nan was tiny and tough. The aloo chat starter was too sweet. There's... More

Excellent food and good service, always pleasant and chatty. I've eaten here a few times and would go back.

Unfortunately I came here for dinner and I wish I'd gone somewhere else. We had a variety of different things, including the lamb tikka starter which was very dry and chewy, followed by the chicken tikka masala which was okay but I've had better. Also if you get sat at the back near the door, you may wish to move... More

This is the only curry house in Keswick at the moment and unfortunately is well below standard. There curries were all tasteless when we visited ( 4 of us ) and worst of all there was excessive food colouring which I hate to see. I do hope a decent curry house opens in Keswick soon.

Average food at way-above-average prices. Four of us ate here and it cost £92.25, including just one beer, which is not good value. For that much we would expect very high quality food but I am afraid that it was only mediocre. Although the service was good, we will definitely not be eating here again.

Came here with family 6 in total, staff were very nice polite and helpful, quick service and hot food. I found mine a little bland but the rest of the family enjoyed it so all in all a lovely meal and will certainly return xx
