Enjoyed a lovely meal here along with friends for My partners birthday. The staff were extremely friendly, they made a wonderful effort setting the table with Birthday confetti, banners and balloons. I have been to other restaurants before for special occasions and never really experienced this level of effort that had being made, so it really was a pleasant surprise... More

The name and the outside appearance does not reflect the excellent food and service within. The menu choice was very good with an excellent range of dishes.

This restaurant is situated in what I presume were two basement flats. Therefore it looks pretty uninviting from the outside. However the inside is bright and tastefully decorated, the service was polite and discreet, and the food was excellent. This was definitely the best meal that we had in Scarborough, although frankly there was little competition.

Went to Rice and spice on a Wednesday evening in May, and there were quite a few people eating. There was a good mix of age groups and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. We had not booked, but we were quickly shown to a table and our drinks orders were taken. We had Poppadum's and Pickle tray to start,... More

Coming from Bradford I have high expectations when it comes to Indian food, and I was not disappointed. The started arrived quickly, I had onion bhajis which was lovely and we... More

Food was freshly prepared, tasty with sensible portion sizes. Staff friendly and neither too eager to get us out the door. nor too slow. Evening meal with wine, starters and deserts took around 90 minutes. Dishes served at right temperature and just enough time between courses. A few things on menu we had not tried before which is nice given... More
