Good food but service not great.

The food was very good and service not too bad but our waiter could have done with a personality transplant, though the wine waiter was much more pleasant and enthusiastic. Apparently the kitchen extractor system developed a fault and the restaurant began to fill with smoke which brought coughing... read more

TAKEAWAY REVIEW Firstly I want to say that I enjoyed my meal but there were a few flaws hence the 3 stars. I would also say that I don't think this restaurant or takeaway will be everyone's cup of tea, the style is different and seems more towards home cooking than commercial Indian/Bangladeshi cuisine. That said it was tasty and... More

The curries here had thick good quality tasty sauces. The service was friendly, smiley and attentive. Kids loved the Korma and the tikka massala. The sizzling jalfrezi had fresh zingy ingredients. Better than the curries I get in Surrey. I don't normally leave reviews, but felt I had to as Asian Spice deserves alot better rating than its currently getting.

Got the feeling I was waiting for a take away rather then a sit down meal. They messed up the starter and I got the impression they didn't careless about that fact. That was enough for me, got up and left.

I ordered a takeaway starter and main, was ready in the required time. I think better than the other I tried. Curry was lovely and thick, hot when got home taste was lovely. Price similar to other one in Barnstaple under £13.

An hour late so the food was cold. Didn't supply half of what we'd ordered and what did arrive was swimming in a thick layer of oil. I'm a real curry lover and this attempt at Indian takeaway was upsetting. Horrible.

Popped in for a takeaway, very nice restaurant with friendly and professional staff however thats as far as it went, waited 35mins for my takeaway which is good as it shows the meals are cooked fresh, but what a disappointment, chicken madras, the chicken was obviously over cooked and tough, the gravy was like dishwater, and the portion size was...
