Bengal Spice, Wivenhoe, Essex (2012)...

My partner and I have been to The Bengal Spice a few times before, so chose this restaurant to celebrate his birthday.

There was no need to book as this was a quiet Tuesday evening (they open at 6pm).

The staff were friendly and attentive and we immediately ordered drinks; my partner had a beer while I had a coffee (proper coffee, not instant).

We started off with popadoms & chutneys. The popadoms were warm and crunchy and there were 4 chutneys to choose from.

Once we demolished those our starters arrived. I had garlic mushrooms while my other half had chicken pakora. Both were very tasty. My coffee was topped up and my partner had a lager shandy.

For main course I had vegetable balti with naan bread while my other half had chicken balti with naan bread. I’d also ordered sag aloo and he’d ordered pilau rice. All arrived hot and plentiful; in fact we were too full for any deserts!

On asking for the bill we were given the obligatory hot flannels, and then a little wrapped chocolate each. The bill was just under £45 which wasn’t too bad I thought.
