Under new management. Arrived and ordered... first concern was that they didn't know the menu.... Didn't sell alcohol so had to nip out to shop which was ok. Waited 20 mins for popadoms and noticed everyone in restaurant looked twitchy with no food.... saw the food delivered to a neighbouring table which looked bland, small portions and every dish looked...

Came here with average expectations. Left with them far from being met. Arrived at 1945. Small restaurant but 4 tables left to be filled. Decent menu so ordered away. Starters - king prawn puri - were delicious and no doubt they were cooked fresh. Did take over 25 mins which should have set alarm bells ringing. By 2120 there were... More

Visited this restaurant for the first time in ages and it did not disappoint. Ali was as attentive as ever and the food was delicious. It is very different to your average Indian restaurant and you are encouraged to order one of Ali's specialities. We were frequent visitors to the former premises (Spices in Chapel Market) and it is nice... More

A somewhat hidden restaurant which used to be ok has now been taken over and the change makes it far better than just ok. With dishes cooked from scratch to order, every "safe" option on the menu is that little bit more wonderful and authentic. The owner who used to be situated in chapel market is now hidden making wonderful... More

Despite having to flee rising rents in Angel for a rather more remote location on the Holloway Road, Spices/Bengal Spice is still the best curry-house in London. I used to travel to Islington from Southwest London; now that we've both moved, I travel to the Holloway Road from Liverpool. Still worth it.

Delicious food, great service and food cooked to suit each person's exact tastes - heat, spices and sauces. Very well priced, and huge range of dishes to choose from. Will definitely be going back!

Most of the time I go for spicy Indian food, I did ordered Chicken tikka massala balti, the food is terrible, full of sugar to taste and deceive customers. As soon as I left I did throughout honestly, imagine if you are diabetic or sensitive to some kind of food, perhaps we may end up in a hospital. I recommend... More

Good meat dishes although two of us felt ill from the prawn dish. Very slow service. Would not recommend until they get more staff

This really is a hidden gem!! We started by looking at the menu but the owner started to ask about our likes and and tastes and picked a dish for us. This was absolutely spot on and is my new favourite dish. The meat was cooked well and the curry tasted amazing. I found the way he asked was really... More

What you get at Bengal Spice is simple: exceptional food, really great prices and service that is second to none. All of the food is cooked from fresh, so arrival time of the food will increase accordingly but definitely worth the wait! When the food arrives, you are never disappointed. One of the reasons why the restaurant is still here today is because the customers love the food. This is simply because everything they use is of high quality and freshly made. So you can actually taste the difference in aroma and texture, it will definitely put a spark in your taste buds; just exactly how it should be made. The restaurant’s chefs specialize in high quality Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine.
To make your dining experience even more affordable, Bengal Spice operates a BRING YOUR OWN Drink policy AND THERE IS NO CORKAGE CHARGED.
