As others have noted this place is now under new management and is called the Bengal Spice. I'm surprised at some of the other bad reviews. Admittedly we arrived quite early but the service was polite and attentive and the food was excellent and arrived in a timely fashion.

You will always compare an ethnic restaurant to your favourite 'at home' but perhaps that is the best yardstick? Anyway, the food from this take away ranged from OK to poor.

Have literally just had to walk out of this restaurant!The service was so poor- one man in particular clearly unwilling to listen to customers and to the staff working with him. We booked a table in advance, but when we arrived the table wasn't even made up (despite the restaurant being empty)we had to ask on a number of occasions... More

We was staying in the napps campsite in Berrynarbor. Asian spice delivered with no problems at all. The food was tasty and hot. The delivery driver was very nice and friendly which makes you feel great even before trying the food. Ordered a big feast for alot of people, had no complaints from anyone. I recommend this place to anyone.

I seriously miss this take-away so much since moving up to Wycombe, so so good. Nothing compares to Asian Spice. Hope everyone is well and hi to Sam in particular.
