Our family of 5 had a lovely meal with great service. We enjoyed our food very much and we didn't actually finish it all as the portions were really big. It was so good that whilst we were there a man in a van parked up outside, came in and tried to order a sweet and sour chicken as he... More

This used to be my favourite Indian restaurant in York and a place were my friends and I have spent a lot of money in the past. Sadly the standard of food has really dropped. I suspect that the chef left a few months ago as we have gone back a couple of times in the hope it was just... More

Celebrating my wife's @0th birthday I place an order for 15 in 8 numbered bags at 1715 hrs for a delivery 3 miles away at 1900 hrs. The food arrived spot on time, every bag was correct and the food was very good and hot. Can't ask for more than that. Thanks for not letting us down Village Spice.

Ordered food and it said it would be 35-45 minutes which is reasonable, it was then postponed to 60 minutes which after letting us know is still reasonable. It got to 20 minutes after that delay for us to call up and ask what was going on. The guy who answered was no help and rude. He told us it... More

good food good service. Very filling. Reasonable cost. I would definitely eat here again when visiting York. And take your own drinks, which is cheaper, or buy from shop across the road.

11 of us booked to come. Already been with a smaller group once before and on both occasions the food was really tasty and well priced. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Friendly waiters, lovely food, prompt but relaxed service, and very accommodating over my son's allergy needs. Very reasonably priced too.

First time visit and not disappointed! Have to say it didn't look much from outside but inside was lovely and the staff inviting. Food was tasty although the dishes were a tad on high side. Upside is you can take your own drink (not soft )as they have no licence. Would definitely visit again

Been wanting to visit here for a while, the promise of great food and the benefit of taking your own beverage is a winning combination. we were greeted with a smile and shown to our table. Vast selection of dishes and many not available in other York restaurants. we were a party of 4 and all chose different styles of... More

The restaurant isn't in your normal setting in a busy street where you might find other similar establishments. It doesn't appear to have a licence and other patrons on the night seem to have brought their own beer and wine. If you want some alcohol with your meal there's an off licence opposite (about 10 m away). I had a... More
