Being Indian I always look out for good Indian food whenever travelling to other countries. I had been to Spice when it was previously owned by an Irish family. This time I was pleasantly surprised to see an American family from Hawaii having taken over the business. And one of the family members is the chef. I was truly amazed... More

Each day several specials are listed on a blackboard and I tend to select them at random -- partly because I have no idea what some of... More

Good food, over a number of years, in spite of a change in ownership. If you ask for 'spicey' then you will get spicey. portions are pretty big.The biryani was very good. We just couldn't​ eat it all.

A bit of a walk from centre but worth it. Near big supermarket. Run by friendly lady from USA who understands about vegetarians and coeliacs. They were very helpful in suggesting main course choices. Very pleasant staff and pleasant surroundings. Visited twice. They deserve to do well. Nice clean loos too!

We chose mild dishes to suit those sharing with us. Three different vegetable curries were adequate for 4 people with two rices. Lovely flavours. Recommended.

This restaurant, opposite the Bon March Supermarket is a great find. Run by an Irish couple it serves spicy Indian food. I like my food reasonably hot and found the 'medium hot' curry right at the edge of my comfort; so go for the mild option if in doubt. They do lunch time specials which are very good value and...

The restaurant had lots of Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten Free options. I personally am not any of these but was travelling with a friend who is and we both liked the way they were getting away from the thought process of Indian means lots of meat. The service was great, we had a great young American girl serve us with... More
