“Gorgeous food of high quality and nice friendly staff serving.”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

We have been many times to Woodthorpe spice and are never disappointed. The staff always make us welcome. There is an extensive menu choice, something for all tastes but the chef will also cook to requested styles or ingredients. The food is always fresh and hot.
An excellent little restaurant.

“One of York's better Indian takeaways”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Although I've never had a sit-in meal at Woodthorpe Spice, I've had many takeaways and have yet to be disappointed.

The menu has a good selection and delivery is free (within a three-mile radius and on orders over £10).

“Good Little Restaurant on Housing Estate”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

This little place is located adjacent to the Dick Turpin pub in a row of estate shops about 2.5 miles from York railway station. The Woodthorpe Spice (Woodthorpe is the name of the local area) is a tiny licensed sit-down Indian restaurant. It is freshly decorated and has a menu with some interesting and unusual dishes. Although small (about half a dozen tables or so), I’ve never seen it get overly busy although Fridays and Saturdays do appear to be the busiest days of the week.

The food is excellent and highly recommended but the service can be slow at times (relaxed even!). I once ordered a take away for collection at a certain time but they didn’t start to cook it until I arrived to collect it. My experience with sit-down meals is similar as they also seem to be prepared at a leisurely rate (but it’s normally worth the wait!).

It has a car park at the rear but is also on the No.12 bus route that runs 2 busses per hour during the day and hourly in the evenings and on Sundays. The bus stop is virtually outside.

Overall; recommended!
