Worst Indian meal we have ever had. The food was tasteless, watery and very expensive. We will not be returning

Awful!! Had a takeaway from this restaurant last night and I was violently sick after eating the chicken Tikka Masala and getting pains in my stomach all night and all of today, constant nausea. I felt totally fine before eating the meal. Chicken was dry as a bone, I actually thought it was pork at first. And far too much... More

We have visited Lakeland Spice on and off for some years now. On our stay in Keswick last week, we had take-away food, rather than sit in this time. We called our order through, and it was ready when promised when we arrived to collect it. We had a mixed kebab starter, two curries, mushroom pilau rice and a keema... More

We had a takeaway - the chicken tikka bhuna was very poor- very watery, tough chicken and very little taste. The garlic nan was inedible. I had saag paneer which was ok as was the pilau rice. When I read what I've written maybe I'm being a bit generous with 2 stars. For the price maybe it should be 1*

Our annual visit to Lakeland Spice was back to a rather pleasant experience. We found the waiting on staff very pleasant and friendly. Our starters of onion bargees and king prawn purée were tasty and fresh, a good start. The main courses arrived far too early after just finishing our starters, I mean under a minute, but we did not... More

I have never had such a dreadful Indian meal in my life. We had sheek Keebab and chicken chat for starters. The chicken chat was bland and tasteless and the sheek keebab was like salty rubber, it was vile!! 3 of us had a medium strength chicken dish for our main meal and it was the most tasteless meal we...

Best Indian in Keswick with good solid curiries. Very busy Saturday night so can't blame team for making hay. As a result felt a little production line Usual high street Keswick Lakeland premium prices, so expect to pay a few quid more than your std curry house.

Ate there on a Tuesday night - late February. Very quiet, maybe 4 other tables occupied. Everything about the food was poor from the Poppadums to the Main course. All the food seemed to have been prepared a long time ago and reheated. The Tarka Dhall was really poor. I would rate this my worst Indian meal for years. I... More

Been here before and second time was just as good. Food was great, I had the chefs special. Staff are very friendly and service was very quick. Recommend to anyone, only Indian in Keswick anyway. Will be going back.
