Went on TA recommendation and was not let down! Although around 1km out of Burgau it is easy to find on your right off the main road with plenty of parking. Wide menu choice to suit all and relatively good prices. Service excellent

We have had 3 take away's from here in the last month. Great tasty curries and you can chose the 'heat' level on each dish. Big hit with all the family. Will definitely use again and again.

Having grown tired of the frankly shoddy service in all the restaurants in Salema, we decided to try the Spice Cottage. And how glad were we that we did. Best Indian food we have had outside the sub-continent and some notable places in London. Friendly...More

Just give them a ring and order by phone, or alternatively, go physically where you can wait at the bar until the food is ready.
