Dining at Bengal Spice in Loughton is restricted to dinner, making this superlative Indian restaurant one of the more sought-after in Essex. Loughton’s a long town, but you’ll find Bengal Spice conveniently located in the main village along Forest Road, not far from Loughton underground, making it easy for Theydon Bois, Buckhurst Hill, Chigwell, High Beech, and Debden residents to get a piece of the action. And action packed it is, with dishes straddling Indian and Bangladeshi cuisines studding the menu. House specials include the lamb bindi, shatkora, and fiery hot southern Bengal naga curry, while the chef’s recommendations of chicken tikka anwaka, zeera (marinated overnight), Bengal duck or king prawn, and monkfish kaybury are all worth exploring.
