You can easily be put off by the exterior of the Bollywood Spice, but the interior is clean, modern and very comfortable. I suspect that the majority of their business is takeaway, but this does not detract from the restaurant. We tried the Chicken Tikka Marsala, which was a little sweet for my taste, but perfectly good. The Niramish was... More

Very average food. Had to return the prawn curry dish as it was inedible. The staff is bored and you get the feeling is being troubled by your visit. Will not be going again.

We've been visiting here for years. Was previously Slap Up! Good value take away and restaurant food. Friendly staff. Will deliver to local villages. Clean toilets. Slightly put off by terrible state of living accommodation which is on view from road. Broken windows covered with cardboard. Not a great first impression

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.
