Perfect view of the much appreciated picturesque town center . We can cater for large parties as we have a seperate dining room aswell as our main dining area for 60 covers, be it 8, 10 or 30.

“excellent food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

Tucked away inside a little shopping arcade just on the rise up the hill from Bowness to Windermere. It is just around the corner from another Indian restaurant on the little cobbled street close by

I can't compare them as i have only been to this one. Its 3 years apart but on both occasions it has been spot on. The food is very good with an extensive menu. The staff are attentive and efficient without being in your face.Service is quick and the cost is good bearing in mind you are in a tourist town. Would recommend without reservation.. also does 30 % off if taking away food

“Spice at the lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

A very enjoyable experience. Dinner for a party of 9 and achieved high praise from everyone. The staff were very attentive and helpful regarding choices and the food was of the highest quality. I would thoroughly recommend dining here and encourage diners to sample the house and chef speciality dishes.

Great food. Good quality, very tasty. Lovely staff. Quick and sufficient service even though there were other diners. Best curry house in the lakes and I have been to them all.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

More food than we could eat of great quality.

Service was good and a great location to sit and eat your meal.

Would recommend this Indian restaurant.

If I could recommend one small detail to improve our great experience it would be to leave a bigger gap between serving courses.

That said still a great location and great food.
