“FRONT ROOM EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed 31 March 2013

Me and my boyfriend, had an Easter weekend at Helmsley, Black Swan. Was looking for an Indian on the internet and We found Helmsley spice. We checked the reviews on trip advisor and they were good reviews and decided to try it out.
Scenery was boring, reminded me of how a 70's front room would look like with a fish tank. There's no bar in the restaurant and no waiting area for takeaways. Strange, dull atmosphere with poor service. Two star hygiene is below average by ryedale council. Our waiter couldn't explain the menu propperly. They really need to improve on there hygiene and standards.

“Exceptional curry”
Reviewed 16 February 2013

As regular visitors to Helmsley from Newcastle, we were delighted to find the Helmsley spice had opened. After being recommended by one of the local bar staff, we tried this out on valentines night... Great choice.
Food was superb, staff exceptional and all in all one of the best Indian meals we have had.
Would wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant.
