“Friendly service and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Nice fresh popadoms came with a nice pickle tray, lamb balti was nicely spiced and my wifes chicken tikka massala was tasty.


Overall good food and nice service all these people who expect nouvelle cuisine need to realise that there are a great many Indian, Bangladeshi and Pakistani restaurants in York and this is one I would certainly visit again.

Well done Bombay Spice on making our evening an enjoyable one.

“Easily avoidable”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

This was poor on every level. Try the Mumbai lounge on fossgate for a much more pleasant Indian dining experience. We did!

“tasty food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

we had a livingsocial deal and booked the table for 2, the staff were friendly,and although it was busy, and a friday night,we only waited about 10mins for our food,when it came there was plenty,we had butter chicken and the chefs special curry,both were very tasty,not too hot aswell which i was worried about.only thing i could faulter was the bottled beer was warm but that could be down to the amount of people in there when we were in,i would definitely recommend this restaurant.
