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

As I walked into Asian spice I noticed that in interior of the building really lived up to it's name... there was bamboo themed wallpaper! Firstly, the customer service was horrific and I mean horrific. I felt that the workers were the hunters and I their helpless prey. They looked at me with hunger in their eyes - they lured... More

We ordered food and was told it would be 45mins to an hour. Food arrived after 2 hours after constant phone calls to the rude staff who constantly lied about delivery time. Ultimately gave me my food which was the wrong order. When I complained I was told to keep the order and they would give me 50% off. Our... More

As the title reads................DON'T BOTHER ! How best can I describe the place - Faulty Towers does India ! 20 Places booked in advance - with plenty of notice. On arrival the place was empty (never a good sign). The carpet was sticky under foot. I enjoy a pint of lager with my meal (i'm not over keen on wine)... More

Stayed in Ilfracombe and we all fancied a take away. Not always easy when you don't know the town/ restaurants. The outside looks a bit run down, but don't be fooled, the takeaway was really lovely. The food was toned down to our request (mild) and was delivered hot, which isn't always the case for take aways!

Had a nice curry there a couple of weeks ago. It wasn't very busy due to it being a Sunday night out of season but the curry was great quality and the service was pretty good.
