We hadn't booked a table and arrived at 8 o clock on a Saturday. There were 2 of us and we were seated straight away upstairs in the busy restaurant. We were lucky to get a table. Great atmosphere, service was also very good with helpful attentive waiters. We had chicken tandori to start as well as chicken tikka and... More

Visited after reading some good reviews and also being included on taste card. Nothing out of the ordinary, food was generic and average. Service was perfunctory. Taste card only covers main meal (which we had read in advance). We did get a complementary drink but nothing award winning here.

Four of us were in York and fancied an Indian meal. The reviews and hype for this restaurant were good. We booked a table and had high expectations but sadly nothing about the experience was better than average.

We came across Bombay Spice purely by chance during a short break in the beautiful city of York. My wife and I, together with our two young daughters enjoyed a tasty Indian meal in pleasant surroundings. We were looked after in fine style by Shohel who couldn't have been more attentive. Overall this was a very enjoyable visit and judging... More

Called in on the off chance on Saturday night after hearing it was an award winning restaurant and wasn't disappointed. Great food and great service.

We were visiting the area on business and fancied a curry. The place was recommended by several of the locals and we have to agree that it was superb. We did the usual thing of having a couple of meals that we order wherever we go and then add in some of the "house specialities" or what is recommended by... More

We've been here twice, second time to ensure we hadn't got it wrong the first. Unfortunately, we hadn't. The food was not as good as many supermarket curries, with the sauce being a largely generic, one colour fits all sea of nothingness. Very little vegetables, herbs or spices recognisable. We won't bother with third time lucky.
