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

Tried this place a couple of nights ago. Interior has been changed completely and give a nice fresh, spacious and relaxed atmosphere. Toilets are clean/new. Staff were friendly and helpfull but left us alone to eat which was appriciated. The food was well presented and looked good. Standard poppodoms with a decent pickle tray. Starter was a simple affair but... More

This was our first visit to the newly refurbished Rice & Spice formerly The Curry Leaf, I was very impressed with the food, service, friendly staff and surroundings. The dishes we had were not ones we had tried before but will definitely be having them again. Great atmosphere, will be going back very soon, good luck to the new owners.

Now called Rice and Spice and under New ownership, my husband and I were keen to check it out. We were not disappointed. Very polite service was further improved by little interference from the staff as we ate. In fact it was quite chilled. No music playing was odd at first but we liked that. My husband ordered his test... More

Called up and asked if the chef, or ownership or method of cooking has changed in the last few weeks, and the reply was "That's my business and none of yours. Don't you ever call me again!" It would seem they're ashamed of something....

Another Year has passed since my last visit and as well as a new name and expanding into the the basement next door, the menu has had a major update, a much larger and more traditional Indian/Asian Menu. The place has a more contemporary look and feel, the staff seemed a little inexperienced, hopefully their waiting skills will improve, the... More

The once amazing food made and managed by Dharma has been removed entirely and it's so big standard as to be dull, inedible. On top of this staff are not very competent. For one of the best places I've ever been to, to one I'd say - frankly avoid. I realise you have to make money and have popular dishes,... More

The curry leaf is an excellent Asian restaurant specialising in Sri Lankan dishes - these are colourful , aromatic and can be served at the 'heat' ( spiciness) you require. Amazing blend of spices and other smells coming from kitchen and dishes going to other tables. Lovely atmosphere. Charming staff .
