Our favourite takeaway! We prefer milder curries and they will always make dishes to suit us. Brilliant! Love the cheese naans. Onion bahjees are great. Kids love the chicken pakora! Try Ranas house special chicken! Amazing. Only thing missing is a delivery service 😉

Right in the centre of town on the first floor, with downstairs toilets. The stair carpet might benefit from replacing, but don't be deterred by the initial appearance. A fairly wide ranging menu is offered with dishes from most areas of India, plus some house specialities, and the usual beer and wine choices. We visited as a part of 6.... More

For takeaway (which I did) or eating in Spice is a good choice. Really good food, friendly staff and popular with the locals which is always a good sign. Can't wait to eat there again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here when visiting Thurso for work. Fabulous choice on the menu with some interesting and different dishes to choose from. We all enjoyed our meals. The service was also excellent. We were made so welcome and there wasn't anything that couldn't be done for us. Excellent service and with a smile!
