Visited York just before Xmas and ate at this excellent restaurant on the first evening of our visit. It was located about 2-min walk from our guest house. Taking my Ukrainian visitors for their very first Indian meal (ever), they were absolutely blown away by the quality, taste and service in this welcoming restaurant. A very good selection of dishes, with varying levels of "hotness". The only reason it drops a star is the fact that you are required to take your own beer!! I like spicy curries, but accompanied by cool beer!! Had we known beforehand, I would probably have taken beer. Well priced at approx. £10 per head.

Dear customer. Thank you for your valued custom and most importantly your feedback. I am sorry to hear about your concern with our restaurant being a bring your own alcohol premises but we strongly feel this feature brings a unique incentive for all our customers. Although we actually do hold a license, we realise the importance of concentrating on our food and service and also provide a real value for money meal for our customers.

Just for future reference, we are also located next to a very well sourced off-license which you may use. Thank you for all the other positive feedback and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

A great atmosphere, friendly staff knowledgeable about the food, and most importantly willing to go that extra mile to make the meal just right for you, a truly excellent service!

Visited here recently and this was the second time. Service, good value, good portions for money especially when you take your own drinks. The starters were excellent but unfortunately the main dishes were bland and tasteless. The dish that myself and friend ordered had (2 chilli symbols) against it on the menu but no way met the expectations. Others who joined us at the table also agreed they were disappointed with the lack of flavour of their mains. Sorry but will not rush back.

We've been to Mirchiz quite a few times with family in York. This is a really friendly, unpretentious restaurant. It's clean, really good value (£37 for four people, including starters and sides) and that it is Bring Your Own Booze really suits us well. Portions were massive too, we all had enough for lunch the next day, and the staff were happy to give us a doggy-bag.

The veggie selection is excellent, and the service good. It's a popular place, so worth booking, and the atmosphere is vibrant.

Highly recommended to anyone who likes a cheap, satisfying, tasty curry.
