We stopped using this place for several months because the portion sizes kept reducing but we gave it another go a few weeks ago and were pleasantly surprised, good food, plenty of chicken and naan bread very tasty.

The food can't get much better, decore is improving with more work planned. service was great and portion sizes are big. Alum the owner will look after you. The best curry I've had in a long time and the certainly the best one in west cumbria at present.

As usual we tried a selection... More

After a very odd visit to another Indian restaurant, we were very happy to discover this restaurant. Food, service and venue were a breath of fresh air in comparison!

I've used this restaurant several times whilst visiting the area and the food has been decent. However, my first take away from Bengal Spice was disappointing with the Onion Bhajis being re heated and as hard as rock, they were inedible. I could have taken them back and complained but they shouldn't have been served to me as they were... More

Visited again last week. What a change a couple of months can make. The food and service was greatly improved. Had the mixed grill and had no chance of finishing it.
