Came for a meal for first time since the restaurant reopened after the fire. Not very busy, lacked atmosphere. Seemed that staff were more interested in getting you to order more drinks and persuade you to have more poppadoms than you actually want! Definitely felt badgered over drinks and bill charged for more poppadoms than we had ordered. Portions are... More

I took my kids, nephew and partners here for a special night out. None had been previously and all of them are avid lovers of Indian cuisine. All 20 somethings. The various meals selected were beautifully cooked. We all shared and commented on how individual the meals selected were. We often experience similar tastes from different selections at Indian restaurants........ More

Visited the spice mill on Sat night for a family meal, and have to say after going through a bit of a rocky patch, the place has turned a corner!! The food was absolutely gorgeous, best Indian I've had in a while! Really friendly attentive staff too, highly recommend!

What a lucky gem for a village to have this side of York. This is a place that's experienced in exceptional service in all aspects of what a restaurant should be and has been for many years. In a nutshell; food is full flavoured, servers are full of beans and expertly attentive, and the atmospheric ambiance is the cream of... More

We have been coming to the Spice Mill for a number of years now but this evening's food was fabulous perhaps one of the best meals we have had here. Cooking perfection and some really special and unique dishes. Well worth a trip to Riccall to try some excellent Indian cuisine. Good atmosphere and excellent service from all the staff.

Thought we would try the spice mill, lovely setting somewhere new, BUT that's where the hopefulness ended. The waiting staff were slow un-attentive and not interested in customer service. We waited 1 hour for our starters which were average at best sizzler with chicken, chops and a small sheikh kebab, waited a further 20 mins for main meal which was... More

Off the beaten track. Worth visiting to enjoy the amazing building. Friendly and attentive staff. But sadly the curry left a bit to be desired. Popadoms were not as crisp as they could be - slightly bendy. Sizzling mixed meat starter (for two) was good. Tasty. Chicken jalfrezi and lamb garlic chilly both tasty. Side vegetable dishes brinjal bhaji was... More

We went on Saturday night, not having booked, but were warmly welcomed and offered a drink and the menus while we waited. They found us a table, despite being extremely busy, and we enjoyed a fabulous meal. We have been here on many occasions and the food just seems to get better and better. The staff are very friendly without... More

This is the 1st time we have visited since the fire and the restaurant re-opened. This was a disappointment all round. Food was OK but very small portions. Service was OK but was over charged then sat and watched waiters and other staff having a gossip about our complaint. This made us feel pretty uncomfortable. Sadly we wont be returning

Thank thewisemonkey
