Jaipur Spice is synonymous with fine Indian and Asian subcontinental cuisine in York and the North Yorkshire region. This family of restaurants has been in operation since 1986, and therefore there’s a good generation of loyal diners that come back for more time and again. Jaipur Spice’s Clifton outlet, down Haxby Road, is a great place to sample this Indian restaurant’s famous hospitality and fine food, made according to recipes drawn from all across India. Perfect for casual dining, or a private function.
We went on a Friday night. We had great food and great service. We would highly recommend it from our experience. Between our party of six, we ordered quite a range of dishes and were all happy with our food.
Always a nice atmosphere. Food was great and the service was just as good as ever. Good value for money. Ample parking. Would definitely recommend.
A very good restaurant, efficient & pleasant service, delicious food. Only vague negatives were surprising lack of desserts on menu and noise from a large adjacent family party group. Will definitely be returning.
One of the best ways to really explore Jaipur Spice’s offering of Indian cuisine is to head straight for their banquet menus. These are distinct from what you might expect when Jaipur Spice hosts private dining, where bespoke menus can be tailored to suit the occasion, but are in any case lavish sets for two or four people featuring dishes such as this York Indian restaurant’s signature Rajasthani gosht and chicken Hyderabadi, delicacies drawn from the annals of regional Indian cookery. And, if you strike it right when you book a banquet at Jaipur Spice’s Haxby Road, Clifton restaurant, you might be treated to live desi music and dance as your feast.
Another good entry point into this preeminent York Indian restaurant’s offering is to turn to their house specialties. These recipes, though time-honoured in provenance, have been honed over the years by Jaipur Spice’s talented chefs, and offer connoisseurs of Indian and Asian subcontinental cuisine something different to your usual selection. The Special Malaya cooks chicken tikka with almond and coconut flakes for a mildly spiced dish, while the Chittagonian chingri masala bakes Bangali king prawns in the tandoor before simmering them in a spicy red masala sauce. Other unique delicacies coming out of Jaipur Spice’s Clifton kitchen include the sweet chicken or lamba honey masala, and the southeastern Bangladeshi Arkan gosht – a hot little number. Find this particular Jaipur Spice down Haxby Road, and be sure to book in advance.
