We have been here a number of times and the food has been very good if not improving each time! I can recommend the spinach paneer and my husband loved the tikka. We have come here with a number of friends and they have also enjoyed the dishes

Had a variety of vegetarian and meat dishes here and they were really good. Well cooked and plenty of it I'd visit here again. We arrived mid evening on a Sunday when the restaurant was relatively empty. We were well attended to by very friendly staff. We really enjoyed the meal.

We were a visiting group of 4 after a round of golf and were catching the 19.50 train so chose this restaurant as closest to the station. Great decision we explained time was against us and we couldn't waste much time with the usual deliberating over the menu, they weren't busy and attended to us quickly,happily and always with a...

When walking past I wasn't sure if I was going to go in as it was more modern and not looking like the "traditional Indian restaurant". The food was very nice, menu was good and varied and the service was excellent. If I lived in Scarborough I would be dining here a lot!! Very clean and fresh looking.

Mixed experience on our first visit since Dharma upped sticks. The contrast couldn't be more extreme between our beloved Curry Leaf and it's rebrand as Rice & Spice. Gone are the murals and ambience. In are bright colour-changing lights and yellow walls, naked save for the odd bland print of Scarborough. The only echo of the former incarnation is the... More

My friends and I chanced upon The Curry Leaf a year ago and it was fantastic. When we returned this year, we were initially a little disappointed, as we are big southern Indian food fans. However, although Rice and Spice provides the familiar Bangladeshi a northern Indian food we all know, it is very, very nice. Really well executed. We... More
