Burghfield Spices is hands down the best Indian/Bengali restaurant you will ever visit. I have eaten countless meals here and every single one has been utterly superb. The meat is always good quality and well cooked whether it be lamb, chicken or duck. The kebab bashi was one of the most delicious things I ever experienced when I was eating meat. Now I am vegetarian the vegetable versions of every type of curry are also superb. The aloo korma I had tonight was one of the most delicious meals I have eaten in memory.
When you order takeaway which I do regularly, the food is always ready quickly and Burghfield Spices is a God send when you are hungry, cant be bothered to cook but feel like a delicious nutritious meal quickly. We are so lucky to have this place nearby. The staff are also the nicest, friendliest and accomodating people you could wish to meet.
I cannot imagine that anyone other than a liar, idiot or owner of a competing restaurant would possibly leave a less than 5 star rating for this excellent restaurant.

We eat here often. It is a pub which is split into a traditional pub and a proper Indian restaurant. Each half has a separate kitchen and cooks. The staff are excellent and so is the food. I cannot comment on the traditional food side of the pub.

Give it a try...they will also cook you something that's not on the menu.

I tend to just tell them what type of Indian food I like and they will surprise me...and its always good.

Prices and parking are good. Reserve by phone, don't email them, as its a bit of a hit and miss.
