Can't believe I have never done a review in this place. I think we just take it for granted! My husband and I have been coming here for 28 years, and hopefully for another 28. My husband and I come here on our first date back in 1988 and are still here in 2016. Introduced our children to Indian food... More

I ordered a take-away for two from the Bengal Spice which was ready exactly as told me, twenty minutes after my phone call. The food on this my second order was as good as the first occasion. The flavours are exceptional, the spices perfectly blended and the quality of meat excellent. The meal for two was delicious, with a thoughtfully... More

We've tried all the Indian eateries and takeaway and this is best. We've eaten several times and each time the dishes are obviously cooked fresh and no grease/oil like many. This time had prawn puri and chicken tikka starters then chicken jalfrezi and dopiazza. Really aromatic. Sauces not a homogenous slop like many. Since moving to Deal the others are... More

We've been using the Bengal Spice for 20+yr & keep coming back. Good food & they even agreed to make a Bombay curry which isn't on the menu. I'm sure we'll visit them again before long.

First things first, the food at this place is very good. Please ensure if you are ordering poppadoms as part of a delivery meal, that you remember to asked for the spices/chutneys/sauces that go with them. We didn't when we ordered a takeaway. Why not? Because EVERY Indian restaurant in Great Britain provides them with the poppadoms. So the take... More

Visited without a booking and the staff were friendly and accommodating. Menu was varied with chef specials as well as the usual range of dishes. Main meals were really well spiced and not greasy at all. Sides were generous and breads nicely crisp underneath. Drink prices were a bit steep - nearly £5 for a bottle of Kingfisher and Cobra....

Good food, was hurriedly shown to our seats the second we arrived, and felt rushed to make our selection, young chap not very talkative or happy in appearance, the other man who was a bit older did smile tho. The food was good I can't fault them for that. Just was over very quickly, for a relaxed evening meal it... More

I'm a regular to this establishment and have been for about 7 years. I've seen the changes and I've always been impressed by the quality from Ahmed and the team. The amount of dishes and flavours have increased and on little staff they cope really well. I have never seen them prioritise take aways over eat ins. I know for... More

Our large group turned up without booking mid week. We were made very welcome with the service and food excellent and well-presented.. All very clean and well-decorated. Recommend the Kashmiri rice.

4 of us came here for a family birthday on a quiet Monday. There was only one other table using them. There were two waiters, an older gentleman who was very attentive and friendly however this was overshadowed by the young man who was very rude. When our food arrived, a couple of items were missing and when we asked... More
