We ordered a takeaway which we were told be 20-45 mins. An hour, nearly two we had our food. Totally flavourless and our order in complete. I phoned the restaurant and the person argued with me that the order was correct. Terrible food and terrible service will never ever order here again. Despicable and will not totally below the belt.... More

A Friday night treat, we ordered a curry from The Spice Garden takeaway in Benson village for four. £40 later and we were presented with a green coloured king prawn jalfrezi...how bizarre! All four curries were watery; 2x chicken tikka masala 1 X chicken Malaya 1 X king prawn jalfrezi The Keema naan was disappointing, lack of meat inside. Overall,... More

We ordered a meal to be delivered yesterday evening as the food had been very good on the previous occasion. I was told that it would take an hour to deliver as they were busy and I agreed that this was OK. If only it had been just an hour! Several phone calls later, including one when I was told... More

Six years in we still have a problem giving our address. Foods great but I can't have it delivered because the guy on a Friday cannot understand my address. It's very frustrating because we love the food. That's five times in the last three months I've given up and put the phone down. Come on guys sharpen up we don't... More

This takeaway is one of the best around! But on the odd occasion the meal isn't great hence the review. Highly recommend but not on busy nights!

This was my first visit to the Spice Garden. Ordered by phone and told 30 mins. Food was ready when I arrived however when I got the food home and unpacked it was short 1 portion of rice. It was not worth returning as all the other food would have been cold when I got back. It was a shame... More

We use the takeout service most weekends and can never fault the food. Delivery isn't brilliant, but know that is due to their staffing issues, we have only had a couple of occasions where we have been disappointed. Would still recommend

This was the local indian takeaway to where we stayed. Food was very good and reasonably priced. We stayed at Benson Marina, had a lodge with a hot tub and just wanted a chilled weekend, couldnt be bothered to cook.

Food is good however the delivery is just shocking. Had to wait nearly 1 h 30 mins and the prawns were like bullets, the chicken dry and the lamb inedible. They promise to deliver within the hour but this has now happened 4 times in a row! Don't trust delivery times.
