The food was great and so was the service. I ate alone but didn't feel lonely or ignored. The staff were very attentive and I didn't feel at all rushed even though it was a busy Friday night and I was at a table that could seat 4.

We saw this restaurant and was a bit unsure as we are not sure of spicy food. As we went in we were greeted by a very cheerful waiter and shown to a table. We explained to the waiter what we were like and he was so helpful at describing the different curries, he told us that we could order... More

We have been visiting the Lakeland Spice for many years and have been very sorry to see it not ‘hitting the mark’ in the last few years. Our latest visit there was a bit of a disappointment. The starters were acceptable enough but the main courses left something to be desired. The chicken tikka ceylon for example was disappointing, the... More

Well if you;re staying in Keswick and fancy an Indian meal, this is the only restaurant there at the moment. But I have to say that it was all quite good and very acceptable. Service could have been a little better but they were extremely busy on the night we visited. Our meals were hot and well presented and quite... More

Visited with a group of friends on a night out at the start of a holiday. Had booked and although a Thursday evening glad we did. Seated upstairs which was a little remote at first but didn't seem to affect the service at all. A nice selection of dishes well cooked, though only the specials seemed distinctive, the meat was...

Went here during our holiday on Good Friday with husband & daughter and though we hadn't booked we were able to get a table (though we'd have got a take-away to take back to our cottage if it had been busy). The service was good and the food was lovely and very flavorable. Costs a little bit more than my... More

As with other reviews, I thought this was a little expensive, but more on that later.... The menu offers quite a good choice if started and mains. We opted to share the fish tikka made with salmon. We were a little disappointed to find only 2 small pieces of fish (one each) at £5.25, but what we had was tasty... More
