on entering the staff greet you and are very friendly and helpful they do like to be on hand for you and the food is very nice, the atmosphere is good, the curry that I had was the chicken murch which is a fairly hot dish and it was really nice if you can stand hot try this dish.

Food was good and service was quick. Chicken we had was over done and too dry but the sauce made it ok. Good naan breads and the starters are good too.

The restaurant is fine and the staff were professional. Speed of service was not a problem and the pint of beer was fine. The problem was the curry. Lacking in flavour and just tasting very peppery. I have probably been spoilt having lived in Bradford, but this was rather disappointing and I will not rush back.

I have had takeaways from here several times over the past year and I have always really enjoyed the good, it has always been well flavoured and the meat has been nice and tender. Unfortunately last night was a different story. I ordered a Lamb Jalfrezi. The sauce was well flavoured and a nice temperature with fresh veg as usual,... More

Me and the Mrs decided to give Bollywood another shot (last time was disappointing) and unfortunately we were disappointed again. I had chicken tikka madras the Mrs chicken tikka bhuna and both we the same looking tomato slop with pieces of chicken. Rice and naan where ok but the curry should be the star of the show. Complete waste of... More

After my last experience here I thought i would go back. I honestly wished that i never bothered. The service and the food have gone down hill. We waited 45min between courses as the staff were arguing among themselves. However when a group came in who were obviously regulars the staff could do enough. This group of 6 were in... More

We have not been for a while and returned at the invite of some friends. All I can say is I have been missing out. The food is superb and the service excellent. The waiters were attentive and humorous without stepping over the mark. Would strongly suggest you attend this little gem

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
