We visit England every year. It seems the English Indian restaurants are all getting pretty much the same. Whatever you order it all tastes the same . The curries were not bad,however , no where near as good as some restuarants we have tried in Indian,Australia, South America etc.

The best Indian food I have had for a very long time. Every vegetable tasted individually with perfect texture. Really excellent service as well.

The food here is absolutely top notch, very tasty. The waiters are friendly and make you feel at home. The ambiance of the place is fantastic as it's located in an old school (hence the name 'school of spice') The manager always greets me like an old friend even if he hasn't seen me in years.

Visited the restaurant with my partner and we both agreed that this was the best meal we had had in an Indian restaurant for years. I had lamb rogan and he had the lamb dopiaza. Beautifully spiced, not greasy, just perfect and delicious. Also reasonably priced, our meal for two including sides came to about £30. I will definitely be... More

I used to go here very often - but on my last visit the food was disappointing and the staff weren't the usual group I had seen often - and were a little overzealous in asking is everything ok......my friend said her food was a little oily which it never had been before.

Ordered a meal to be delivered. Dhansak floating in oil, stuffed paratha not stuffed and cold. So much for being a regular customer. Never again!
