We had a very pleasant evening with great food! The restaurant is located on a location with very nice views. A place to come back again, that's for sure.

Be it take away or sit down meal the food served is with a smile and always tastes good with good sized portions. The dining area is clean, light and area but dated.

There is nothing Indian about this place and the food all tastes the same. We ordered the chicken tikka as a starter which came as... More

Invited to an evening meal in the Spices of Bengal restaurant last night and was pleasantly surprised. The owner welcomed us in and was very attentive along with the waiting staff.

All our food was good as was the service. The dishes were good size portions. The restaurant setting is good and located at the top of... More
