Having read the reviews I was looking forward to eating some great flavours and Spice Lounge didn't let me down. The garlic tomato instead of lime pickle was amazing and our sheek kebabs, tikka Masala and garlic Tawa (A dish I have never tried before)...More

Was driving back to Heathrow and had time for dinner. Hunted this place down based on reviews and was not disappointed. Staff was very helpful and the food was delicious. Told our waiter what we liked and they customized meals for us .... DELICIOUS!

I have been to many dozens of Indian restaurants and consider myself knowledgeable of the cuisine, yet at the Spice Lounge I encountered many dishes of which I had never heard. The menu has many offerings from regions that are underrepresented in most other Indian...More

it would be around a half hour walk each way. If you wanted a closer Indian, there is a place called Chutneys which is 10 minutes away which I recommend equally to spice lounge.
