6 of us visited Village Spice recently. It was 6pm on a Sunday & virtually empty! However, it was clean, tables prepared & staff attentive. Next door's Off License must do a good trade on this unlicensed restaurant. Their soft drink selection was disappointing-no lime, no soda, no apple juice. Just fizzy cans. However, loved their food & 6 different... More

Lovely fresh food, place is very clean and smells great. Service was excellent and extremely friendly staff (who are nice but don't mither you every 2 mins). Very easy to recommend, and lots of regulars came in while I was there. Bring your own booze and make a cracking night of it! The fish starter was AWESOME!

This is the best in York, I believe, and I've tried them all. The standard set by the owner never disappoints, as he uses his culinary skills and experience to delight and sometimes, surprise. His unique blends of spices tickle the taste buds, and his menu ensures that there is something for everyone. The restaurant has a very pleasant atmosphere,... More

The curry I had was spicy and really tasty - just as I like it. And it wasn't just loads of curry powder (as I have had at some places), the staff were attentive but not overbearing and the curry I chose was on their advice so I was really please. I would recommend and visit again when in the... More

We ordered our meal around 6:20 and were informed it would arrive with us between 6:45 - 7:20, which is reasonable. However, at 7:25 there was no sign, so we rang and were told it would be with us within 10 minutes. We finally received the order at 7:45 after being told that they were busy and it couldn't be...

This is a decent BYO curry house and well worth a visit. Good size portions and i struggled to finish my main after poppadoms and a mixed starter. The waiter was a nice guy to. He had plenty of craic throughout the meal. Worth a visit for a decent curry

Restaurant had nice food, but the service was extremely poor. The waiter spent the majority of the night speaking to a table that he clearly knew well, resulting in our table being ignored. It took an extremely long time for our orders to actually be taken in the first place. The atmosphere was also too loud for a plesant dining... More

Me, my wife and our lovely friend Lisa paid a visit to the Village Spice on Saturday evening. It's a little restaurant on the trendy Bishy Road but it's far from fashionable. Just an old fashioned curry house serving up fairly standard Indian fare. But it's nice enough. Service was friendly and efficient while the food was pretty tasty and... More
