West Yorkshire is a hotbed of superb Indian dining, and Westbourne Spice in Otley, on the outskirts of Leeds, is up there with the best. From their location on Bradford Road they offer a menu that will delight both novices and connoisseurs, featuring all of the Indian favourites that one would expect to see, as well as a huge list of chef’s specials that require repeat visits to truly appreciate.
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.
The mixed seafood curry was amazing - ... . . . Great food great service ! Prices are really good too - would highly recommend
Always excellent food and always really friendly service. We went for an early bird menu option and it was exactly the same standard. Thanks Westbourne!
Excellent welcome, service and food. A really pleasant evening. We all enjoyed a selection of starters and main courses, and were impressed by the quality of the food and the attention of the staff.
