Always a great meal here. My only negative was that the food came so quickly that you felt a little in and out.

Excellent food , service a little slow but as it was a bank holiday weekend, quite understandable, Will certainly come again,

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that you find it a little slow but we do cook all of our food from fresh so it can take a little longer than usual, as well as being busy. Babu Chowdhury Manager of Bay Spice

We had an excellent meal. Very good food with friendly efficient service even though it was very busy. Good atmosphere. Very affordable bottles of a good Prosecco! We were all given a glass of Baileys & some very nice chocolates to finish the meal off....a very nice touch which makes all the difference. Ladies of the party were also given a rose to take home. :) We will definitely be booking again!

Poor service .
Requested flowers didn't even have one on the table.
Chicken wasn't tender and £66 for a mixes starter two mains and two sides and two beers is too much.

I received a voucher where you got a free four course meal for one when there were two of you. Staff very friendly, food great, and lots of special touches, hot wet napkin between course, orange slices, complimentary liqueur, and a rose on leaving. Not cheap, even with discount, but well worth it.

Had a very good meal on Saturday evening. Thought it a bit noisey but didn’t affect the overall experience. I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to friends and family. Excellent service. Nicer touch with the red rose.

Spacious restaurant in a great location with views of the sea and pier. Initial greeting wasn't that warm but then improved. The food was okay but not exceptional. A large family group sat near us and the child was allowed to play his computer game quite loudly. Was about to complain when he turned it off but it really was quite intrusive for a while.

Everything was going well at bay spice for my daughters right up to the point I ordered a sizling main dish , they put the sizzling dish on the wooden slate on our table . I then picked up the metal spoon in the dish and as it was leant against the handle of the bowl it also burnt my skin . I then proceeded to knock my drink over because I pulled me hand back sharply to avoid any more pain . The waiter came over and said be careful that's hot !! I replied it is a bit late now , given there where 3 young children at the table would it not make sense to have wooden spoons that don't burn your skin as they would not retain heat like metal or better still warn people before they burn themselves not to pick up the spoon for 30 mins to allow it to cool down . They did replace my coke and offered me some ice for my burn. However I would of expected more considering I was nursing a burnt hand for the next few days and a dry cleaning bill .

First visit to Bay Spice with large group. Nice restaurant with limited parking nearby. Restaurant big enough to accommodate large groups. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Food good lovely starter and ice cream (banquet menu)but not the best korma I have ever had. Nice touch with rose, chocolate and liqueur at end of meal. Would visit again.

Bay Spice is a truly outstanding local Indian restaurant, offering beautifully cooked and often relatively unusual choices. The standard of cooking is notably superior to the traditional suburban curry house, with the whole experience complemented by exceptionally efficient and courteous service throughout. Thoroughly recommended.

Delicious fresh tasting food. Unfortunately the described "medium/hot" dish I had was very mild although very tasty. Some chicken dishes are expensive but as already said we were not disappointed just surprised at some prices. My father would prefer some more lamb dishes on the menu. He asked if a particular chicken dish could be made with lamb and it was no trouble at all. Lamd was amazingly succulent. Nice touch at the end with a free tipple, choc orange, and refreshing orange segments... and a single red rose!

Visited Bayspice on Saturday evening. Atmosphere was ambient; view of Hastings seat front & pier good.
Staff friendly & attentive but not too in your face. They were there whenever we needed something.
Food was fantastic.
Excellent value for money.
Would recommend & will go again. Very soon...
