Let me be clear dear readers, as you may have picked up from my previous, incredibly diplomatic, review of 'Bollywood Spice', that I would have been happy, nay, joyous, if I'd never set foot in this restaurant ever again. However, we career diplomats sometime have to make concessions, in order to reach a higher goal. Pestered by a dear friend... More

Very very poor food and quality. we ordered chicken dish and vegetarian dish with some minimum expectations. But food was served with completely wrong contents. Chicken Kadai served with tandoori chicken pieces with very very less gravy. And then we received explanation in rood manner. I will highly recommend to AVOID this restaurant.

Our company organised a meal out for staff here and I have to say I very much enjoyed the experience. We all ordered from the standard menu so everyone had something different yet they coped with the numbers and variety very well. We mostly got our food around the same time and I felt the quality was very high. Very... More

This family run curry house is great and the food choice excellent. The decor is very pleasant and tables are spaced apart. Service here is good and the waiters are all very polite and helpful. Have been many times and always have a good experience.

We were here for a family birthday celebration on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was full, with other birthday parties there, and a cosy warm atmosphere. The service seemed a bit confused - it seemed like they didn't know who was meant to take the drink order and who the food order. And it took quite a while for the... More

It has a really good atmosphere and the staff are really nice but the curries are sometimes a bit watery. Not the best takeout but a lovely environment

Friends (a couple) of my housefather own this restaurant. They have many different kinds of curry, like chicken, pork, beef, lamb and prawn. The foods are so great, and the display is elegant, too!! Great restaurant to go~!!

I hadn't been to the Bollywood Spice for some time and it seems to have been refurbished since then, which was a pleasant surprise. The food was good: nothing out of the ordinary, but tasty and hot. Service was friendly and helpful.

My wife has even here many times so we thought we'd go. Staff were friendly and the food excellent with many dishes I hadn't seen before. Owner's family were there and the place had a very nice family feel.
