“Best food we have ever had....what a find !!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

Visited on a monday night so not overly busy which is how we like it.
Received a nice welcome and shown to table
Took us ages to decide what to have as so many interesting dishes not just your bog standard choices
Had the pickle and popodoms,the pickle tray, tray was great loved it all very fresh and not highly coloured.
Starters too excellent quality and the spinach bhaji was best I have ever had .... So full of flavour and not bitter
Mains and sides of garlic naan and chapati arrived piping hot and well presented without the usual topping of the awful oil that some restaurants seem to serve the food in
Chicken was tender and just right size pieces..what sets this food apart from any other restaurants is the excellent use of spices ..very evident in the taste and all very well balanced with good combination and also not overly oily

Cant praise this restaurant enough and as we eat quite a few times in bradford ...well this exceeded anything we had in the curry capital... Oh and the choice of the chill out bangra music was great
Service food ambience,cleanliness and the lovely friendly staff made it a great night for us so thanks guys really appreciate your restaurant, we just cannot fault it !!!!!!?

“The best Indian for miles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

Just had a delicious meal at Bengal Spice. My two daughters went for something different this time while I stuck to chicken tikka main which comes sizzling on a skillet, so much chicken. We all thoroughly loved our food and the service from the guys there is top class. Never disappointed with this great Indian resteraunt.

“By far my favourite curry place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

The staff here are really friendly, polite, and fast. The meals here are to die for! I love hot curries and i can highly recommend the Muni Puri Spice (I ask for it tindaloo hot and its just right).
The starters are excellent, but i don't always have one as i struggle to eat all my main dish so normally just have popadoms and pickle tray. The pickle tray has 5 different choices; onion, mango chutney, lime pickle, mint dip and a sweet dip (not sure what it is but its very nice). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone!
