We found this restaurant on the internet and I wasn't disappointed. The korma for the children was excellent. Myself and my husband have eaten in hundreds of Indian restaurants and this was not the best meal we have had but it was far from being the worst. The service was good and the waiters were very friendly. Overall, if you... More

Popped in early on in the evening in fact we were the 1st in. The staff were pleasant enough and the food arrived promptly. The curry was ok not the best I've tasted and I asked for another drink which never arrived it's not somewhere I'd think of going to again.

Asian spice is a nice little Indian restaurant, also offering take-away food. There is a good range of curries available, and a nice, reasonably-priced wine list. Generally, there's no need to book a table in advance. The staff are friendly and the food is well cooked. We just found both the korma and passanda dishes very sweet, choc-full of creamed... More

I spoke to the guys at Asian Spice before our holiday in Ilfracombe about a takeaway for a large group and they were great. Rather than ordering specific dishes, I asked if they could provide a good selection of mains, sides, breads and rices and that's exactly what they did. The food arrived on time, was hot and fresh and... More

Nice and friendly well dressed staff. Ordered my phall curry but it was very oily and not the best chicken phall meal I have eaten. It was ok though and maybe another dish might have been better. It tasted a bit bland to tell the truth. I Would go back and try again .

We really fancied an indian during our stay in Ilfracombe and saw this place. Upon arrival we had to wait about 5 minutes for a table that was already available when we arrived. We were then seated and poppadoms arrived promptly. However from thereon it was downhill. There were only 3 members of staff and it was busy. our drinks... More
