Food here can be very good. Sometimes it's variable though - sometimes too salty for out tastes. We would prefer more fresh ingredients and higher quality. However, service is always excellent with friendly staff. Cosy feeling in the restaurant.

Never been in this place since it was the Slap Up - and then it was just an amazing place to eat and had a good reputation. I see Bollywood Spice every time I cross the A10 and can't believe how dingy and filthy it...More

We were the only ones there which meant we had the undivided attention of the staff and the food was very swift in coming. The food was delicious as usual and came to a very reasonable £53 for three including drinks, desserts and poppadoms.

Very basic curry. Quite one note flavours, no depth. It's conveniently close to where we live and has delivery but I would look further afield for a better curry.

This is my second review of this venue. Wasn't too busy and atmosphere and food really good. For £20 it is well worth it for a enjoyable meal out.
