We visit regularly the food is always amazing and authentic!
AMAZING indian food - loved to discover new specialities (bengali) which are not normally easy to find. my new fav in the neighborhood
Always amazing authentic flavours. Be sure to challenge your taste buds and BYO to boot!
Spices Bengal is a local gem - a wonderful old school, no frills curry house. Originally on Chapel Market in Islington the rent rises eventually pushed them out of town after around 16 years in the same spot.
Now located on Holloway Road, the restaurant will no longer benefit from its bustling location in Angel, but for those hunting out a decent eat, its definitely worth the short bus ride to Holloway.
The food is excellent and represents really good value. Its BYO too so its kind on the pocket. And with any BYO, they can't rely on the drinks mark up to stay afloat so the food has to be second to none. My only grievance is that the lighting can be a bit bright -- but that's hardly a biggie when starters, delicious mains and sides plus a lovely bottle of plonk (from the offie - and you can splurge a bit when the food is so cheap) delivers a tasty Friday night dinner with friends for around £20 a head.
This place doesn't have the decor, the fancy drinks - or the benefit of being located in a high footfall area anymore - but it smashes it out of the park with its excellent food. Totally recommend.
Absolutely delicious. Excellent addition to Holloway road
Excellent food. Off the beaten path. Wish they were closer to central London.
My friends and I fell in love with Ali's restaurant when it was in Angel and followed him to Holloway Road! Bengal Spice is every bit as good as it's predecessor in Angel but now with modern, elegant decor. The food is delicious and great value for money. The brilliant thing about Ali and this restaurant is that you'll enjoy it if you're a seasoned curry eater or if you've never had Indian food before in your life. Ali gives his customers extraordinary attention and makes recommendations based on a careful process that always creates something delicious. Whether it's a date, a group of friends or a pre/post show dinner I'd definitely recommend this place.
