Sandwiched between the major two cities of West Yorkshire – Leeds and Bradford – is the town of Otley. Usually a quiet and uneventful residential community, there is a corner of exotic eating on Bradford Road in the village, in the form of Westbourne Spice. Open from 5pm every day, they provide the Indian food experts of Yorkshire with a culinary experience that goes beyond the curry house classics, with a menu stacked with specials and authentic subcontinental dishes.
The specials at Westbourne Spice are, well, a little bit special. Their starters include boti dishes, lamb and chicken marinated and chargrilled, and variations on chicken tikka, in this case using chicken livers. Mains at this Bradford Road Indian restaurant are equally as unique: chicken or lamb can be cooked Parsi-style (with chana daal and lemon juice) or murgh Malay-style (with pineapple and poppy seeds). There are other specialities, such as makaika sewata, lamb and chicken with coriander, and tavwa tarka, with beans and cherry tomatoes. If you take a trip out of Leeds to this part of Otley for a curry, you will be sure of finding something you haven’t had before: so book a table now and head on over.
Excellent food, excellent service and very pleasant efficient waiters - we are regular customers and the Westbourne Spice never fails to delight. A very clean and comfortable modern resturant.
The atmosphere was relaxed. The food was fantastic. The staff were all very attentive to anyone's needs. We all liked the idea of chefs bringing the food out. Thought this was a different way to serve. Overall fantastic experience and will be returning.
From the friendly welcome, the excellent service and the best tasting curry around this place is always worth going back to. We've tried many restaurants for a curry in the Leeds/Bradford area but this stands out as the best so despite the 30 minute drive to get there, we'll keep going back.
Great food, great service, lovely restaurant. Definitely a good evening out. Lovely bar area to relax in before and after the meal. Would highly recommend going.
On entering the Westbourne Spice, we were greeted by smart friendly staff, our booking was confirmed. We had the choice of either having a drink in the bar area and perusing the menu, or going straight into the immaculate restaurant. We chose to go into the restaurant, and were given a choice of several tables, Once seated drinks & poppadoms were ordered & quickly arrived, while we choose starter & main. All courses arrived freshly cooked without having a long wait. The attentive waiters seamed to have a good balance, between leaving you alone to enjoy the food and replenish the glass when required. A slight downside in the restaurant can be large noisy parties, so choosing the table worked well. Best of all the food was superb...
Have yet to find a friendlier or more salubrious place for an evening out. The welcome was amazing, not just from one staff but every one of them and there were plenty of them.The whole atmosphere was one of happiness. The decor was really classy and hit the right notes for a calm and pleasant environment. We only had one course and poppadoms to start with. the pickle tray had seven different dips to try, never seen that before. The main course was delicious and, again, unusual choices on the menu which was very varied and would suit all tastes. The service was second to none, every little thing was catered for, I dropped my napkin on the floor and no sooner had I picked it up than it was taken away and a new one put in place for me. That is exceptional service indeed. Through conversation with the staff, they discovered that it was our first visit and after the meal, we were treated to complimentary coffee, because it was our first visit. It definitely will not be our last, we will be back.
Always great at Westbourne Spice. Just had a face lift and looks great. We have been going as a family for years (now with 16 and 12 yr olds). Always a buzzing atmosphere with helpful and friendly staff. Strongly recommend.
This visit to The Westbourne Spice was not our first but we have always found the service, the food and the atmosphere excellent and we were not at all disappointed this time either. We shall be going again!
Great welcome , food always excellent the service @ the Westbourne Spice is always good . The food hear is the best Indian food around Yorkshire. We eat hear often.
Food was very good and the staff are so friendly would recommend Westbourne Spice any time.Prices are excellent ,it is my wife's favourite Indian Restaurant.
Have had lovely meals here in the passed but will not be returning over the Christmas/new year period as it is a set menu which we didn't know until we got there. The set menu had 6 starters none of which I liked and my boyfriend didn't have one but we were still expected to pay 20 pound for a starter main and one sundries they did make me chicken pakora to start but was told the chefs wouldn't be happy a nd they didn't do chapattis either
Brilliant food and wonderful staff it's always a pleasure to eat here. The staff are second to none. I love the place and look forward to eating there again soon The ambience and the friendlliness of this restaurant is unique
A wonderful meal, the restaurant was very busy but staff as attentive as ever. Try something different when you visit, go off menu, ask your waiter to choose your main course. I doubt you'll be disappointed with their recommendation
Fabulous place. Very attentive staff. Extensive menu to cater for all tastes. Food is always excellent. This was our second visit and we were as impressed the second time as much as the first. We will be back.
We were welcomed and looked after throughout the evening. Excellent food and service. The whole experience of our visit was enjoined by our guests. Will be back soon as it was the best Indian meal we've had.
This Is The Second Time We Have Been There. The Food And Urroundings Are Both Excellent. The Chef Serves Your Food Which Is A Nice Touch. Very Attentive Staff. The Best Pickle Tray I Have Ever Had.
Very good personable staff, fantastic food, but due to such a busy night we waited over 20 mins to sit down ( we had booked beforehand) and then had to chase up our main course. I had mentioned in my booking it was my son's birthday, however there was no recognition about this.
Great ambience, wonderful friendly and informative staff and the best Indian food ever. Just a super place and I love it there. Highly recommend. Four of all ordered different food and every dish was excellent.
Very friendly and helpful staff. They made the meals to our requests. the food was excellent. You are not rushed off of your table even though there was a lot of people waiting for tables.
Me and my partner visited on Friday evening and thoroughly enjoyed it.We returned on Sunday with two friends because we were that impressed and we all had an good evening ,the food ,service and prices are excellent.We will be there again soon.
Staff were very welcoming and friendly. The venue has a great atmosphere- it's very busy but plenty of space, lots of staff and great ambience. Most importantly the food is amazing. Well worth a visit.
Enjoyable lovely food atmosphere had an Early bird meal just a bit quick serving the starter when we had. Not quite finished eating the popdoms to be served the starter of the next meal . Apart from that all was good
We have been going to the Westbourne for the last 12 years. Sadly, I don't know if it was because they were busy, but the popadoms were soggy. Waiter asked us if two of the men in our party wanted the "child's portion". As I say, never happened before but not that impressed really. We will tell them when we next go. Overall the food is generally 10/10.
Fantastic service, warm atmosphere and delicious food (the lamb paneer is delicious). One of our favourite restaurants in Yorkshire! Generous portions so give a starter a miss if you aren't that hungry. Highly recommend!
Best night for years....great food, great service, great venue. The management and team went that extra mile to ensure our evening was fantastic. Portions were huge as well so great value for money.
Fabulous food, quick service, very attentive staff, and a lovely atmosphere. Everything about this restaurant is just amazing, from the food to the decor, even the outside is lovely to look at!
Good service and good food. Be warned when selecting starter though - quite big portions! A big place and the decor isn't amazing but it's busy so the general ambience is good. In general, a good dining experience.
Very good exellent curry staff very nice and helpfull 3rd visit will definatley go again and would recommend .Used different curry resteraunts but like this one best keep up good work
Excellent service, food and atmosphere. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. We took our children 4 & 11 and the staff were so kind and patient with them whilst ordering
Brilliant (as always). Excellent food and service. A bit of a trek from Leeds but well worth it. The best place for a curry that we've found in the Leeds/Bradford area.
Always a warm, friendly welcome. Food is always to a very high standard. There are many top quality curry restaurants in this area but this is one of the very best.
Excellent service, always attentive, excellent food. The restaurant is very comfortable and the décor is great. We have had some really good family get togethers there and cannot recommend highly enough.
Fantastic meal great service and good atmosphere . Value for money . We went on a Wednesday night . Three courses under a tenner. Will certainly visit again very soon xxx
This is usually our favourite restaurant, but this visit the main chicken dish was a bit tasteless! Plus the chicken was like preformed squares? Not as nice as normal. Staff are friendly as always and good service.
Best pickle tray, big and tasty starters and main course nice and spicy. Very friendly and efficient service. We would recommend it, only problem for me no pub close by to go for a drink first.
Love this restaurant. Friendly and helpful staff. Great decor and wonderful tasty food. We think the chicken liver tikka deserves an award- a must each time we go. Highly recommended.
It was extremely good ... My father prefers this restaurant to most of the others he goes to in the area ... He does have a couple of favourite dishes but tries other things sometimes!
Excellent food and service. Extensive menu, and very pleasant environment. Family naan breads are amazing! Happy to spice any dish up or down to cater for everyone, including children.
very efficient service. Staff were very warm and friendly. Food was excellent. Will definitely visit again. Very nice setting and very clean. Our favourite restaurant used to be Akbars.
