We (family, friends, partner) eat here regularly (every 4 - 6 weeks) Friday and Saturday nights. Service is always really good and the food is delicious. have tried the take away a couple of times and that's been very good too.

“Great Food, Excellent Service and Lovely Atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2010

Mango Spice is one of our favourite restaurants which we visit regularly, which is all the more impressive given it is about a 100 mile round trip to make a visit there!

After originally being introduced to the place by friends, we now regularly return and always receive a warm welcome and excellent serrvice, in addition to the tasty authentic food.

Having also visited on a number of occasions with our children we have always found the restaurant to be very family friendly. We have always found the restaurant to be busy on each occasion we have been there which is always a good indication that this restaurant is worth a visit.

Give it a try and you won't be disappointed. . . . . . . We never have been.

“Bad service and food not great either!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2010

Was recommended to us so we went on a Saturday night. Had to ask for water 3 times, eventually it was brought to the table, but had to ask twice for glasses to drink it from! I rang in advance to ask if it was a bring your own alcohol place, they said it was (it isn't) which caused embarassment as we'd brought wine with us. Portions of rice were tiny. My main was fine but all 4 of my companions didn't think much of theirs (dishes described as "mildly spicy" were very hot indeed!)
Overall it was the lack of concern and service from the staff that let this place down.

NickLocke, Web Administrator at Mango Spice, responded to this review, January 17, 2010
We are always disappointed when a customer leaves Mango Spice and is not thoroughly delighted with both the food and the service. So far as we can recall, we were not given an opportunity to put things right during the customer's visit. When there are problems, we prefer having the opportunity to resolve them on the spot. We hope that this lady and her friends will come to visit us again and make themselves known to the management team.

“Excellent quality Indian food without oily coating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2009

I have been here numerous times and friends from out of town rave about it. The food is very well presented and of good quality. The onion bhajis here are the best I have ever tasted. Staff are very polite and helpful.

This is not your usual post pub curryhouse (with loads of oil and unnamed 'meat' curries), and it does close quite early, but you get the quality that's missing elsewhere. The chicken is chunks of prime breast and the lamb is lamb and not mutton. It seems quiet most nights except weekends but is well worth eating in or a takeaway.

Most other curryhouses seem very poor in comparison to this, and I have eaten at quite a few!
