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.

Deshi Spice is my go to for good quality tasty and reasonably priced food. I can not fault any dish of theirs I have tried - every time I go I opt for something different and it never fails me! On top of that the service is second to none, the staff are very attentive friendly and helpful which is rare now days. If you haven’t already make sure you try the £11 deal which is on Sunday’s & Wednesday’s it’s absolutely amazing value! 5 star restaurant overall.

We went on a Saturday night and it was 29 degrees outside- when we walked in it was air - conditioned just right(not too cold !). We were very late but they still welcomed us in ! It has been newly decorated with nice light fittings and colour matched nicely. We ordered wine which was good value and it was good quality. Food was really nice and I had taken some friends that had never had curry before- they loved it! We always eat here, food is fresh and tasty and they will adapt it for you if you ask. Takeaway is always great here as well. Social distancing was great and all staff were wearing masks. We will be back soon Thanks 🥘🌶🍤🍾

Visited the restaurant with friends and had a number of starters and main meals. Our waiter Moses was most helpful and ensured that we chose the best curry according to our tastes. Food was plentiful and hot and the sides were delicious. We will be back!

If there is one thing that annoys me about Indian restaurants it when they serve paneer dishes that end up being grated cheese. As a vegetarian who has grown up in a Indian household I very much look forward to paneer dishes but this was not very good at all. Management should make it clear on the menu that you do not serve paneer but in actual fact your dishes are made with cheddar cheese. I wouldn’t order a halloumi burger and expect to served a brie burger.

Four of us went to Deshi Spice after hearing good things. Fine to begin with, the starters were nice ( chicken samosas / bargees ) and the white wine pretty good. Then the main courses and it all went wrong. The couple we were with said their food was OK but ours certainly wasn't. All I got was a burning tongue and watering eyes and my companion's food wasn't much better...nothing but salt, salt and more salt !! Horrible. Could hardly eat it. Yuck. They tried giving me something else but that was even worse ! Whatever decent flavours these meals had were just ruined by someone pouring a salt pot all over it. Our friends tried a bit and agreed it was inedible. We wonder if the meat was well past its date and they tried covering it up with salt, except it was far, far too much ! My meal was knocked off the bill but my partner's wasn't, and the staff didn't seem much bothered by our complaining at all. Needless to say we will not be going there again and will be advising others to steer well clear ! A rare evening out nearly ruined, and our suspicions about Indian restaurants in Bedford confirmed - they are mostly rubbish and nothing but glammed-up fast food joints, with nothing genuinely good or interesting about the food at all. Even so this beats the lot for sheer nastiness.

Can I just start by saying the food from Deshi Spice in my experience is very very good. Never had a problem with it and yes it's probably some of the best Indian cuisine you will find locally. I have been using DS for about 2 months now for the odd Saturday night takeaway. 3 weeks ago 3/10 I placed an order via the JE app at 5.30 pm for delivery at 7.30 pm. The food arrived 3 times, firstly at 6.00 pm then again at 6.40 pm and finally at 7.40 pm. Each time a different driver. Last Saturday 17/10 I placed my order again via JE at around 6.30 pm for delivery at 8 pm the food was an hour and a half late, after 3 calls to the restaurant it finally arrived at 9.30 pm. The staff were polite and apologetic, I was told my food was sent to the wrong address but I have my doubts about that I think it was just forgotten. I called when the food was half an hour late and it took a whole hour and 2 more calls to sort the mistake. It's a great shame the reputation of this restaurant is being damaged by the logistics of deliveries. I will have to think twice about using them again. A bottle of beer was sent by way of apology but it's not much consolation when you have been waiting on food for an hour and a half. Personally, if this was my business as the owner(s) I would have personally called the customer to offer my apologies in person. As I said food was again spot on...... Please sort the delivery issues!!

Too cramped in a small curved seating area (not ideal for a birthday celebration). Starters were not satisfactory, luke warm, all three dishes were drowning in onions and with the same red sauce! Main dishes were very poor, vegetable curry had no vegetables, just sauce with onions. Same for lentil curry, portion size was unbelievable, 3 tablespoons at a stretch. We were so disappointed with the meal that we decided we would take our birthday celebration cake home ,the dinner had dampened our celebration. Please note the waiters were fantastic, it’s the food that lets you down.

Well lit modern restaurant, very attentive staff, poppadoms brought out promptly, along with menu and drinks.. Starters excellent, and mains equally good, very impressed with the whole experience here, we have become quite jaded with Indian food of late and this was a not inconsiderable 50 mile round trip, that said it was most certainly worth it and with such a varied menu we will return in the not to distant future.. Not your average Indian, by far a superior Indian!!

My family ate here for my husband’s birthday. We received a very warm welcome and the service throughout the meal was excellent - a good balance between attentive and leaving us to enjoy the occasion. Having lived in Bedford for over 20 years, it was only our first visit and I have to say the curries were the best we have ever tasted! The chef prepared something for me that wasn’t on the menu and my boys and husband took the opportunity to try some new flavours from their extensive list of house specialities. The food was hot, delicious and presented well, with the whole meal being rounded off by some birthday treats! A definite must for all you curry lovers in Bedford and we will most definitely be returning. Thank you.

So easy to place an order online and over the phone, Abdul and jay immediately welcoming as soon as you walk through the door and happy to stop and have a laugh. The service here is brilliant and the food is impeccable. Will always return even if it is a 25 minute drive and will definitely recommend family, friends and anyone reading to place an order... if it’s to take home or to sit in at a welcoming restaurant you will not be disappointed 👌🏼

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a lovely relaxed meal at Deshi Spice. With everything going on in the world at the moment they made us feel welcome and safe. The food here never disappoints and our waiter, Abdul, was very attentive and informative. Even through his mask we could see he was smiling and happy. A very happy and comfortable atmosphere with amazing food, we couldn't ask for more.

We had the Sunday special which was tasty and good value with portion sizes just enough. Shame that the saag paneer was not cubed which is my favourite but melted cheese but Abdul our host made up for this with his charm, professionalism and gracious acknowledgment of our special occasion at the end of our meal. Thanks to Abdul and the team.

This was our 2nd curry of the week so we thought we'd try somewhere new with a different menu, we were not disappointed! Our order was taken efficiently over the phone, we were told the cost and estimated time of arrival without having to ask. The food turned up hot, well prepared and delicious. I had salmon which I asked to be spiced up, the other half has a curry. Sides were rice, popodoms, salads, bhargi chutneys and a small pot of dhansak sauce (asked for this as not on the menu). There was enough food left to freeze for another day. Overall, great service, great food, not much else you could ask for really.

First time visiting and it was amazing. Abdul our waiter was very polite and friendly and made a great first impression. We chose the set menu and the portion sizes were generous but not excessively. The food was exceptional. We went with the chicken pakora's and chicken samosas to start followed by lamb bhuna for main. The presentation was immaculate and the flavours were even better. The lamb was very tender and not too spicy but very well balanced flavours. Couldn't fault it. Will definitely be returning again and also ordering for takeaway.

A sunday evening feast. Didn't realise they did special Sunday pricing when we booked - that just made an amazing meal even better value. The lagers were cold and went well with the food, the wine was fine though nothing to shout about. The food does need shouting about though - five of us covered a decent range on the menu and it was all delicious with probably the pick being the fish curry. Special mention too for the nan breads and the matar paneer which was made with cheddar rather than paneer which was different but nice.
