A great find with wonderful food combining Nepalese and Indian food. Food was not spicy and delicious. Service was good and waiters were very polite.

Just back from lunch at Britannia Spice and it have to say it was absolutely wonderful. I had Chicken Pakora and Chicken Tikka Massala with boiled rice and naan bread it was delicous! My friend had Chicken Ceylon (hot) and he loved it. Look forward to our next visit. Noted they are doing 3 courses for 2 for £29.95 that... More

Arrived on a hot early evening for dinner and very impressed with a very smart Britannia Spice restaurant, clean bright and spacious and a warm welcome from the staff. The starters of vegetable and the chicken pakora were excellent. The vegetable and chicken curries that followed were also excellent washed down with a nice cold beer and the house red... More

I booked on 5pm to go for lunch at Britannia Spice and we had quite high expectations. The restaurant always seems to have signs up showing their awards etc and for around £12 we could get two courses! Seemed like a good deal for such an award wining restaurant. When we arrived the waiters (about 3 or 4 of them)... More

Visited Britannia Spice with friends and have to say it was one of the best meals we have had. The restaurant itself is immaculately clean and well presented and has a light airy feel. The tables are well spaced which I always feel is good in order that you have some privacy. We were welcomed at the door by friendly... More

Lovely food, beautiful surroundings and attentive service however, they tried to charge us for food that was already covered and paid for with our Groupon voucher. The voucher stated that we should receive starter, popadoms, main, rice, naan and beer they insisted it should have said rice OR naan. After arguing over a comma not meaning "or" they backed down....

We had high expectations about this restaurant and have been meaning to try it for ages, however, it was a huge disappointment. Not much atmosphere, although, watching the electrician climb up over the bar to fix some lights (unnecessarily, as it was daylight) provided some entertainment. Really felt this job could have waited until the customers had left. The poppadums... More
