“Could only find one very minor criticism”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014

We went on a Monday, so the restaurant was very quiet and this may have affected the service in a positive way. Service was excellent with polite attentive staff who were there the minute you needed them but were otherwise unobtrusive. The food was excellent and beautifully presented and compared favourably with a Michelin Starred London Indian Restaurant that we had visited. The décor was modern, spotlessly clean and relaxing with a mixture of tables and booths spaced well apart. The price of our over indulgent meal for 3 with wine, was very reasonable with a bill coming in around £90 including a tip. Everything was excellent except the cutlery, a minor point but we three agreed later that the attractive modern design was far from practical, and quite annoying, as it had a habit of rolling off the plates and was quite difficult and awkward to hold. With this type of food, it can make for a messy meal when the cutlery has a life of its' own. Otherwise great and we will definitely be going again

“Lovely restaurant, quality food and excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

Dined here for the first time and would defiantly be back.
Food was lovely. Came out feeling full but not like is had a greasy curry. A little more expensive than our local but you pay for quality food.
Service was good and staff very friendly.
Well done, keep up the good work.

“Best Indian in Brentwood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

Been to The Headley Spice quite a few times with friends and family and never been disappointed. The chutneys that they serve with the poppadoms are the best that I've had, the lime pickle is lovely!! Try to have a different curry every time I come, and never had a bad one - my favourites are the Garlic Chilli Chicken and the Manchurian Chicken. Never had a dessert in here but never do in Indian restaurants, you should fill up on starters and mains! Waiters always friendly. Definitely my favourite Indian restaurant.

“Best indian food around.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014 via mobile

I can't complement this restaurant enough, the quality of food service and decor is outstanding. The staff are always friendly and attentive.
The food is always cooked to an excellent standard and they are good size portions.
