The name of the restaurant is Spice Culture and that’s because it takes you on a cultural tour of spices and authentic Indian food. We were so glad we found this restaurant the food was absolutely delicious. We started with poppadoms and onion barge’s. The...onion barge’s were amazing with onions potatoes and kale inside and fried really crispy. For our main meal we got garlic naan pilou rice French fries and the most amazing Chicken Tikka Masala I have ever tasted. The Masala was nothing like you normally get in a bright red sauce but really authentic Indian Masala that tasted amazing. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for an incredible Indian experience.More

Excellent, beyond delicious. Having sampled Indian food in many places I can honestly say this is the best I’ve ever tasted. The subtle flavours, enhance the natural ingredients. Resulting in a fabulous dining experience. The staff are knowledgeable & friendly. Cannot wait to go back.

Can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. Lovely friendly, welcoming staff and superb food - from simple breads and rices to exquisite starters and mains. An interesting variety of dishes all beautifully prepared and delicious.

Been to most of the establishments in Harrogate. When a new one pops up with good reviews, worth a visit. Monday night - had to book !!! Warm welcome, cosy atmosphere and relaxed pace. Menu had standard favourites and some tempting new dishes as this...is an Indian rather than a Pakistani restaurant. Most others are Kashmiri or Bangladesh with their own excellent flavours. This was subtlety different. Good pickles and papadum to start, I chose a mixed lamb dish, Mrs T had a chicken spinach affair which was light and tender. A different take on a curry - with a tapas menu for larger groups.More

From where I have to start. Occasion is my friend's marriage anniversary. We order Chilli Garlic Paneer and Alio tikki on starter was full of flavour and which appetite you. On main course we ordered Dal Bhukara and Paneer Butter Masala and some Garlic Naan....I want to say only one word "Fantastic". Service was excellent and we ordered some drinks they all arrived very quickly. I mean if you are in Harrogate and if you really want to try Authentic Indian food you must go there. Highly recommended. Thanks a lot see you soonMore

They only do deliveries when they are not busy so I wouldn't try this on a weekend as they are always really busy
