Me, my wife and our lovely friend Lisa paid a visit to the Village Spice on Saturday evening. It's a little restaurant on the trendy Bishy Road but it's far from fashionable. Just an old fashioned curry house serving up fairly standard Indian fare. But it's nice enough. Service was friendly and efficient while the food was pretty tasty and... More

We ordered a takeaway from Village Spice on Saturday night (after a heavy night on Friday we did not feel as though we could face getting out of our pyjamas and eating in). I cannot stress enough how good the food tasted. The curries were cooked in thick and creamy sauces which were mouth waveringly good - even now whilst... More

We visited this restaurant after being advised by our guest house which is on the opposite corner (Gregory's). The welcome was great and the food was superb, we experienced a number of different dishes of which all of them were excellent, the advice of the guy's serving was spot on and nothing was to much trouble. You take your own... More

Having just moved to York, we were excited to try our local Indian takeaway. Needless to say we won't be doing that again. The meat in my lamb dish was like chewing old boots. The bread they tried to pull off as puri was more like an over done paratha and flavourless. The chicken pakoras were just pieces of meat... More

This is a small restaurant out of town but a real gem. The food is always good, as is the servis and a bonus is BYOB which keeps the price down. Thank You Village Spice

We stayed in York a few days ago & decided to order a takeaway to be delivered from the Village Spice. The positives include a pretty fast delivery (about 30 minutes after we ordered) & only £20 for three main courses, two lots of rice & some chapatis. BUT ... my daughter's chicken korma was pretty bland: just un-marinated pieces... More

Went here with a large group of friends and got great service and lovely food. We over ordered but staff very happy to bag up left overs so we could take it home. Being BYO keeps the costs down so very reasonable night out.

We went to collect and the staff were lovely. We noticed it's a take your own booze restaurant while we were waiting and... More

Always good food, friendly staff and a good atmosphere, full of locals and frequent visitors and if the owner is on kitchen duty it's even better. Well worth a visit any day of the week
