Really enjoyed a tasty curry with the kids after we had arrived at a nearby caravan site. Service was quite slow (although we were warned that we would have to wait for food) but food was definitely worth the wait.

We pre booked as we planned on useing our taste card. Just the 2 of us at 6.30 on a Thursday evening. Restaurant quaint and in keeping with the rest of beautiful Helmsley on the outside, inside dingy, dark, in need of updating and some tlc. We were seated and asked if we wanted poppadoms which arrived within a few... More

Even though it's only a small restaurant the quality of the home made food is always top notch with friendly staff. If your in the area definitely worth a try eat in or take away you won't be disappointed.

Ate here last night. We called in advance, which was a god job as it was quite busy. We both had Onion Bhaji's to start with which were small and didn't contain much onion. However that is my only complaint. The Main courses and side dishes were tasty and just the right proportion. It is cash as stated

We arrived early on a Sunday evening. It wasn't busy. The starters were ok and my wife's main was ok but for me, mine had too many onions and peppers in and had a sweet taste. Staff were friendly enough. Try it yourself and see what you think.

Great staff and great service. I have had curries all over the world and this was up there with them. I would definitely recommend it to all. Just watch your head if you are above average height.

Visited this Indian tonight to order a take away. Before I ordered i asked how long the wait would be as I had my 8 month old with me. I was advised it would be no more than half an hour. I ordered and waited in my car and went back in after the half an hour wait. I'm disgusted... More

We had a meal one evening at half term, the restaurant was very quiet with only 2 other tables occupied. The menu was not just your curry house regulars, but a number of dishes that were new to me. The food was good and the service prompt (but with an almost empty restaurant you wouldn't expect less). The interior of... More

We were staying in Helmsley for the night and our hotel didn't cater very well for vegetarians, however Helmsley spice do! One of the best curries I've ever eaten, and I'm a curry freak! Just one word to describe it, excellent!
