We have ordered three take aways from Bengal Spice this month and all we can say is that they were ok but certainly not anything to go out of your way for. On one occasion we got something totally different from that which we had ordered but we do understand that things can sometimes go wrong but... read more

Forgotten how many visits we have made now to this restaurant but it never fails to please! Excellent menu, served with a smile and at very reasonable prices. Would advise making a reservation if you want to eat after 7.30pm.

My partner and I quite frequently order takeaways from the Bengal Spice, and have each time been impressed by the food we recieve. The chicken korma is amazing!! Our friends alike, regard the food highly, and generally order different meals to ourselves. It takes a while to arrive through their busy times, but it remains consistantly hot.

Just had a take away and very disappointed. Asked for Lamb Biriani GOT chicken?? Very salty. Could have counted the vegetables in the curry sauce on one hand. Mains were cold as was the bread. Bombay potatoes were hot so heaven knows why the rest was so cold

Tipped on plate straight out of tin take away foil tray . Service very slow beer warm . The standard of food service was bad and we were disappointed to say the least . We have used this restaurant before and it was ok so something must have changed for it to be so bad on this visit

We dined here as it is a favourite with the family we were visiting. Good menu selection including some mild dishes. Service was friendly and not too slow as can be the case in some Indian restaurants. A very enjoyable meal.

We came here many years ago and stopped because found food not too great with too much artificial colouring . So returning for a Friday night curry we were pleasantly surprised by traditional Indian recipes done well and with fresh ingredients . And no mad colouring It's menu is like most Indian restaurants but nothing wrong with that because food... More

This 'curry house' is one of the oldest in town and over the years we have used many time. However, the last couple of times we have been several of us have come down with 'curry tummy'. A real shame because the staff are friendly and the food portions are good. Will we be brave enough to try again...yeah I... More

We ordered our to be delivered takaway food for 2 as celebration of exam results. Sadly, it would have been quicker to walk as it took well over 1hr for food to arrive ( we had to phone to chase) & we live less than 10mins walk away! Food was just 'ok' & not particularly hot & given it was... More
