Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We ordered on-line with fingers crossed after a recent disaster from another takeaway, and a massive thumbs up to City Spice - our meal arrived early, and piping hot. The portions were huge, with plenty of meat rather than filler veg. Very happy customer, and...will definitely be ordering again!More

Authentic Bangladeshi kitchen at its best that’s what will find at City Spice. The dishes are cooked absolutely perfectly Bangladeshi style. We had three previous orders from city spice and they all been a 10 out of 10. The tandoori dishes are delightful also curries...are mouthwatering. Staff at the city Spice are very helpful. Congratulations on a job well done to the team @ city spice.More

Ordered a takeaway from here & unfortunately it wasn’t very nice. For an Indian the taste was very bland, I ordered a prawn puri & it just lacked seasoning & Taste, more onions than prawns, same with the mixed grill it just all lacked any...kind of seasoning or taste, I feel like the food is made just for the sake of it being a business, definitely no love going into the good being made here. Would advise the restaurant to either get a new chef or at least taste your food before sending out to customers. Will stick to my usual restaurant Shaad next time.More

We started using City Spice after frustration with inconsistent alternatives in St Albans. City Spice food is excellent, always top quality, always deliver on time and friendly people too, try it.

I don’t do well with takeaways, normally food is mediocre, delivered late and not as I want. Well tonight I was surprised, all the food came hot, piping hot, freshly made and on time. I can give it 5* as it rightly deserves it. Would...order again, great tasting freshly made food. Delivered bang on time.More

I got a takeaway delivery and it was, by far the worst Indian takeaway that I’ve had the misfortune of buying. The delivery took an age to arrive and was not particularly cheap. Every dish that I ordered was disgusting and really poor quality. The...order was subsequently put where it belonged…in the bin.More

Biryani is awful. Just rice tiny shrimps and strips of chicken cooked in what seemed like tomato sauce. The prawns with mustard seeds was bitter. Will not be ordering from them again.

Hot fresh and well presented. large portions too. Tried to order on line but wanted something bespoke.... no problem. Staff very helpful and attentive. Went to collect, price on app was slightly different to what was asked for, but maybe that’s because I asked for...something bespoke. That aside, food hot fresh and absolutely tasty and large portions. Would return and would recommend. I was unable to order chicken tikka dansak on line, hence the confusion. Great to find somewhere good and fast during lockdown3:0.More

Honestly the worse takeaway I’ve ever had. Ordered through Deliveroo. Driver couldn’t find my house and spent 9 minutes outside despite me offering to come out and meet her. Food therefore lukewarm when it actually made it to me. Food completely tasteless, sauce had curdled,...and the rice was so wet it left puddles on my plate and washed away whatever flavour may possibly have been in the food. Give it a miss.More
