Came here for dinner on a Sunday evening with my partner and two friends visiting from near London. Service was a little disorganized but very friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere was good and food excellent - our guests were definitely impressed.

Helmsley Spice is a great Indian restaurant if you have many hours to kill, the food is excellent but service is slow and you have to wait a lone time between courses. If you plan on spending the whole night here then it's fine, if not forget it. Take away is no better wait time about 1 hour

Had a very nice meal here. It seems very popular but we didn't need to make a reservation. The extensive menus offers some very good options to try something new.

Not rushed, relaxing atmosphere and friendly attentive waiting staff. Food is plentiful and delicious. Happy to doggy bag what was left. Reasonably priced.

Decided to call in for a meal. Friendly welcome as always. It was 8:15 pm and quiet but a good sign is the number of takeaways. Locals would not keep coming back if it wasn't good. Popadoms and pickle tray to start. Very fresh popadoms and a tasty selection of pickles. Our meals were outstanding . We eat this type... More

The food for seven was all brought to the table at the same time and was tasty and well cooked. The service was friendly and attentive on what was a quiet night. The only odd thing was we had to pay the bill by cash at the end and non of the seven of us had seen the rather small... More

The last time we visited with our grandchildren we were served with pappodoms and chutneys, all fine so far, then we were subjected to a 55 minute wait for our main course due to endless take aways being prepared. never again, thankyou.

Sauce tasted lovely, but chicken was overlooked and tough and naan bread so hot couldn't be initially handled, it was a Monday night, traditionally the night the chef has the day off, but sad couldn't heat stuff in the normal way.
