Run by a really nice team of people who are both friendly and polite. The menu is a fairly typical one for this type of restaurant but the food is definately above average. Great place for a group of friends tohavea night out.

We came here as a party of 4 to celebrate a birthday, based on the look of the place from the outside which I had noted on other visits to Ely. I also check Trip Advisor before booking anything now and so were not disappointed. The food was very tasty and plentiful and lots of choice for vegetarians too. We... More

After such great TA reviews, we had high hopes - and of the 10 Indian/Bangladeshi restaurants in Ely, we chose this Le Spice. The food was disappointingly bland. Tandoori chicken dishes just tasted like McDonalds Chicken Nuggets.

Me and my partner visited the restuarant 21st October 2016. I have to say the noise of chatter on arrival is quite overwhelming. But looking past that it is a lovely restuarant with attentive and helpful staff. Of course we had the poppadoms and chutney tray to start - which as in any indian restuarant was pretty tasty. My partner... More

Three of us ate here a couple of years ago and returned whilst back in Ely. Very good cuisine, full of flavour and very good service. Unfortunately the restaurant has no ambience because of the lighting. It seems they've use spotlight energy saving lightbulbs which have also been dimmed so it felt like we were eating in the dusk. They... More

The food here was good, but not great. Have had better Indian food in other places. Staff and service was great and the setting is lovely and clean. I had the Chicken Tikka Massala and my husband the Lamb Biryani. Servings are generous and left us with no room for dessert.

Went for a Saturday evening meal. The restaurant was fairly busy and I had seen some good reviews on Trip. I ordered a Chicken Tilka Madras but I thought it was very plain tough chicken and not marinated anywhere long enough or with sufficient spices. I can do better myself. I advised the waiter of this who offered to replace... More

My friends and I come here often for a girl's meet-up. The food is always delicious and the staff are so accommodating and friendly! This is the only Indian we'll eat in Ely. I highly recommend it!

Enjoyed a fine Indian meal at Le Spice. We had the lamb special and the sea bass dish, most enjoyable. Cobra beer was excellent but house white was a bit tart.
