Interesting to read the mixed reviews here. We visited early one evening and the place was pretty full. Thought the meal was good - the portions were large - we had a starter each followed by a main meal far too much! I thought the prices were ok - we had a couple of beers each, starter and main -...

We have been here three times so far during our stay and visits to the lake district within the 3 years. Though the food is nice but not excellent, we would have to say that the prices are way too expensive. We was under the impression that the poppadoms was complimentary and ordered one each. We was charged nearly £3/4... More

Although there seem to be mixed reviews on this site, we went twice last week and enjoyed high quality food and service on both occasions. It is quite expensive for what one gets, but we found the quality and quantity to be excellent. Recommended.

You can tell this restaurant is the only indian in keswick with no competition. It is overpriced and very bog standard. I have never had such a rubbish curry, it was watery. I didn't receive all my order but had driven 6 miles away with my takeaway that I didn't return, just like I will never return! I'd rather have... More

We've eaten here on many occasions as we live in Keswick and had quite a few takeaways. Never had a bad meal. Friendly staff.

Beautiful food prepared and served by lovely staff. We added a late item (tarka dhal) to our take away, but when we got back home found it had been missed out. As we were over 6 miles away and tired out after a long fell walk, we couldn't be bothered to go back, but it was a bit disappointing. Nonetheless,... More

Hardly any meat in the curry, pretty bland on the taste buds and overpriced, probably because it's the only Indian in town so there's a lack of competition. Any pub curry would be better.

Wonderful take-away. We visited this restaurant twice during our stay, both times having a take-away (more convenient as not all the family eat curry). Service was good, just have to be patient whilst waiting as they were very busy. Idea - collect a menu during the day so that you can call it through to collect later on.

My bed and breakfast landlady recommended Lakeland Spice one sunny morning whilst I was halfway through her delicious full English breakfast. "I think it's excellent," she said, "some people think less so but it depends on what you have to compare it to." And here's where the trouble begins; for I come from Manchester, an Indian lover's paradise, where one... More
