Good restaurant, but not quite as good as the Villa Spice 2. Food was good but more like your usual Indian restaurant

Called in on Saturday night and the restaurant was busy, so it looked promising. Unfortunately when the food came we both found our respective choices to be severely lacking in flavour, and not just in terms of heat, the curries were barely spiced at all - in fact there is more depth and flavour in a Sharwoods jar or an...

Visited this weekend as a family whilst staying near Holy Island, initially went because there was very little choice in Berwick, glad we chose it though. Extensive menu and reasonably priced. Food good and service also to be recommended. The place has been open 30 plus years so it has stood the test of time. Would definitely visit again if... More

We went here after reading good reviews, we were not disappointed. We had a lovely meal, Everything was really nice with a great service. Plenty of large chunky pieces of chicken in our dishes, no skimping. As we have found with other Indian restaurants. Good value for money, I would go again if I was in the area.

Had a meal with my daughter and we both agree it was the best Indian food we have had. From the starters to the main course we loved it all. Wished we lived closer to call more often.

What a great meal we just had. Just the two of us looking for somewhere nice to eat. Visited this establishment as we had been before and it has never disappointed. Tonight was no different. It was a very busy restaurant tonight but still we got A1 service. The manager and staff were very attentive. Food arrived nice and quick... More

Went in for a lovely meal with the family and a lovely meal we had. The staff are friendly and helpful, didn't wait long for the main, some yummy poppadoms and pickles to keep us going, thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the chicken madras, the best balance of flavor and spice for me, I like to share the onion bhaji... More

We visited this place on a Saturday night. It was reasonably quiet but by the time we left it was packed. How? Is it the only Indian restaurant in berwick? The poppadoms and pickles were tasty but the main course was disappointing. The rice was cool and the chicken tikka madras was chicken and not tikka. The sauce was quite... More
