I've been using this place for over 2 years now, nearly every Sunday. The quality of the food is always outstanding. Everything is utterly delicious. My favourite is the Chicken Adda which is just brimming with flavour. Tasty little starters always a treat, particularly the lamb samosas - I could eat several in one sitting! The order always arrives hot and within the time they indicate when I place the order. The two delivery fellas always a smile, are polite, and always have a pat on the head for my dog. Give it a try!

Been using this takeaway for 9 years now. I have tried others in Jericho and Cowley Rd and they were good but did not live up to the food Bengal Spice cook. I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal from here and find it difficult to believe some have, if I did I would tell them and I'm sure they would do something for me. So I don't believe a lot of negative feed back on here.
I usually ask them to make some dishes less salty as I prefer less salt. What's most impressive is their kitchen. Years ago my car refused to start after collecting a take away. I called breakdown and as I waited the staff in the kitchen invited me in to sit down. Their kitchen is v clean and organised, plus they made me a new take away at no extra cost as mine was cold by the time my car was fixed.
Hence why they have been rewarded 4 stars! It's no surprise to me. Their food is fresh, flavours are amazing and they give a lovely little salad with each meal. Just wish they had a restaurant to sit in! Value for money for sure. Best take away in Oxford if you want quality food year after year!

Was walking home from work on pay day so decided to treat myself to a nice curry. Told them what I would like to order but was then told they didn't accept card payment - only cash or cheque.
Thought this was a bit outdated so decided to go home & order online from somewhere else but the only place still open that I could order from was, you guessed it, Bengal Spice! So they are up to date enough that you can order online from them but they don't take card?! Having said that, the food was good so will order online from them from now on.

I had a meal from Bengal Spice last night, it was our first time and happy to say it won't be our last. Mouth watering flavours and great taste just to die for! Ignore all the negative comments and give it a try. Probably the best takewaway in Oxford.

I have just had a very bad experience with Bengal Spice, ordered a lamb biryani: even though I told the guy over the phone I wanted it extra hot it was not according to my satisfaction. It's like they counted the pieces of lamb in the biryani; there just wasn't enough! The king prawn madras that my sister ordered looked horrible in colour, and the purees were oil soaked and didn't taste very nice. We won't be ordering from them again- this was our first and certainly the last!

My order was ordered to be delivered at 18:30 and it arrived at 18;00, (what's the point of the time slots?) The chicken tikka curry was milder than a korma. My meal was very disappointing. I won't be ordering from them again.

I cannot recommend them enough. The food is always fragrant and spicy (enough for us and we have strong tastes), the service always prompt and friendly and I know I can rely on the place, after four years up the road from them, to be consistently good.

Absolutely fabulous. Friendly service. Varied menu. Everything I've tried has been wonderful; even dishes I've never liked anywhere else.

We ordered from this place once, and that will be the last time... the quality of the ingredients was OK, but the food was not spicy at all and rather bland. The Jalfrezi was mild!

We regularly get takeaways from here, and they're good to eat, and generally good value for money. However, if you're a prawn lover, watch out for the prawn dishes as often they come out very salty indeed (do the chefs store the prawns in brine?). Worth mentioning when you order so that the pesky little devils can be rinsed well before being put in your dish.

I get takeaways from here regularly and have rarely, if ever, been disappointed. Good selection, well prepared and served with a friendly smile. Portions are decent so offers value for money. Spice levels are at the levels suggested - so not too spicy if spice is not your thing and nice and hot for chilli fiends. Good vegetarian options. Give it a try.

I have the absolute pleasure of living oppersite the Bengal spice and could not recomend it more highly. The service is so friendly, the menu varied and the food outstanding.
Ordered a take away from the Bengal Spice last Saturday. It was absolutely amazing! There are a lot of bigger and busier Indian resaurants/take-aways in Oxford, but you should really look out for smaller establishments such as the Bengal Spice. Their food was very reasonably priced, looked very appetising and tasted great!
I will definitely be a regular there for some time.
Overall, the food was great and the service was exceptional.
And not only is the food tasty, the delivery guy is quite a spicy dish too!! :-p

Had a take-out meal from the Bengal Spice for the first time recently, and I'm sad to say that it was very disappointing. The food was bland, and counter to the establishment's name, had no spice! Another poor quality Indian in Oxford!
