This is a great Asian/Bangladeshi restaurant. As you approach the old windmill, which houses the Spice Mill, interest is piqued - it's doesn't look like your average 'Indian Restaurant' at all and you somehow know you're going to get more that just an average meal. And this is confirmed when you enter - a warm welcome, a cosy, circular lounge... More

Food was delicious, but service not good at all. We waited an hour for our main course. Staff were friendly but not really on the ball.

We used to go weekly and we loved this place, but last year we were very disappointed in the slow service on two occasions and in the food. We stopped going but last Saturday couldn't get into any of our new favourites so thought we would give it another try. Wish we hadn't bothered . We had to complain about... More

We raved about the spice mill and took friends from a neighbouring village at the beginning of December. The food was not as good standard as previous visits. Very small amounts of meat in dishes and meat was dry and rice tasted like it had been reheated. Pity as the staff are wonderful and very accommodating and gracious with kids.

Came for a meal for first time since the restaurant reopened after the fire. Not very busy, lacked atmosphere. Seemed that staff were more interested in getting you to order more drinks and persuade you to have more poppadoms than you actually want! Definitely felt badgered over drinks and bill charged for more poppadoms than we had ordered. Portions are... More

I took my kids, nephew and partners here for a special night out. None had been previously and all of them are avid lovers of Indian cuisine. All 20 somethings. The various meals selected were beautifully cooked. We all shared and commented on how individual the meals selected were. We often experience similar tastes from different selections at Indian restaurants........ More

Visited the spice mill on Sat night for a family meal, and have to say after going through a bit of a rocky patch, the place has turned a corner!! The food was absolutely gorgeous, best Indian I've had in a while! Really friendly attentive staff too, highly recommend!

What a lucky gem for a village to have this side of York. This is a place that's experienced in exceptional service in all aspects of what a restaurant should be and has been for many years. In a nutshell; food is full flavoured, servers are full of beans and expertly attentive, and the atmospheric ambiance is the cream of... More

We have been coming to the Spice Mill for a number of years now but this evening's food was fabulous perhaps one of the best meals we have had here. Cooking perfection and some really special and unique dishes. Well worth a trip to Riccall to try some excellent Indian cuisine. Good atmosphere and excellent service from all the staff.
