Is the Spice Merchant the best Indian in Town?

Beaconsfield Old Town boasts three excellent Indian Restaurants, the Spice Merchant, Basmanti and the Old Bengal. On top of that the Mumbai Spice Indian Take Away in the New Town offers reasonable fare and free home delivery on all orders of £15 or more. The area has lots of decent Indian restaurants that I have enjoyed meals at including Mr India in Loudwater and Maliks in Cookham. I appreciate there are lots of other good ones in the area, it is just i have not eat in them all – yet! The Spice Merchant also has a restaurant in Cookham (almost opposite Maliks in the High Street), Uxbridge and Henley-on-Thames.

However, I am somewhat biased towards the Spice Merchant in Beaconsfield, because of the sheer quality of the food, the ambiance, excellent service and the option in the Summer to sit and eat in that wonderfully landscaped garden. For the record, the service and quality of food and service at the Old Bengal and Basmanti is excellent, and less expensive. The truth be told, I can not really afford the Spice Merchant’s prices, as it is on the expensive for me, but the food is so superb that I always encourage anyone I know to take me there!

The owner, Bashir Islam is an avid Manchester United fan, and a generous host, backed by his very professional staff, and seems to have built up a very successful business. Is the Spice Merchant the best Indian in town the? Well for me it is, I just wish I could afford to go there more often, but when I do go it is always a special treat, which I suppose is what eating out should be!

And if you fancy trying out the Spice Merchant before 12th February they are offering two main courses for the price of one (the least expense is free). To benefit from this great offer (as I did on Tuesday night) simply register on their website via the hyperlink above.
