We have eaten here many times before & it has always been good. However last week, the food was appalling- my curry was swimming in oil and was inedible. The quality of the whole meal was poor.

We stopped using this place for several months because the portion sizes kept reducing but we gave it another go a few weeks ago and were pleasantly surprised, good food, plenty of chicken and naan bread very tasty. We collected another takeaway tonight and neither of us could eat it all - my chicken tikka masala had 12 pieces of... More

The food can't get much better, decore is improving with more work planned. service was great and portion sizes are big. Alum the owner will look after you. The best curry I've had in a long time and the certainly the best one in west cumbria at present.

I had not realised it was under new management (with plans to develop & modernise the restaurant). New menu, the usual choice of popular meals and a several chef's/house specials. As usual we tried a selection... More

If you judged by the outside of this upstairs restaurant, you'd walk on by. But a local recommended the food so we ventured up the shabby stairs, and it was worth it. The food was above average and the staff were very friendly. The menu is extensive and included Bangladeshi specialities. And the vindaloo wasn't even the 2nd hottest curry... More

After a very odd visit to another Indian restaurant, we were very happy to discover this restaurant. Food, service and venue were a breath of fresh air in comparison!

I've used this restaurant several times whilst visiting the area and the food has been decent. However, my first take away from Bengal Spice was disappointing with the Onion Bhajis being re heated and as hard as rock, they were inedible. I could have taken them back and complained but they shouldn't have been served to me as they were... More
