Ordered the sea bass and it was delicious but huge even the sauce on the side kept me wanting one more mouthful. Staff were respectful and keen on helping, nice little touches they did too that made me feel like a valued customer. Happily went...again for the rest of my business trip. Not far from the hotel caragaline too if you want to go after magreb.More

I have been a customer of this restaurant for 15 years but the takeaway I got this evening was absolutely disgraceful. It took 1hr 30 min for delivery. It was cold and of very poor standard lacking flavour & dry/ over cooked. It seemed to...have been reheated. The standard has really dropped and I will not be visiting this restaurant or getting takeaway from there again.More

Rude service food ok Just rudely served by the waiter. We ordered tea coffee which had spilled on to the saucer no offer to wipe it clean so we did it ourselves. We brought our own Wine which Spice India encourage todo so and we...have done so many times on this occasion we were asked to pay Corkage of €3 it’s not the money it’s the principle. NO wonder we were the only 2 people and 1 other customer. Overall very disappointing.More

Fantastic Takeaway this evening. Monkfish Special and Thai Red Curry were both amazing. The Garlic Nan was the best ever. Indian food is probably the best food to takeaway... Tasted as good as it does when we sit in which I hope we get to...do again soon. Thanks.More

Ordered at 6pm New Years Eve, was told would be ready in 45 minutes. Got there 6:45pm, queue of 15-20 people in restaurant waiting to pick up orders. Quite busy, but okay. Two guys at desk, one taking orders on the phone which never stopped...ringing, one taking money off people who cane in to collect. Two guys were complaining they had ordered two hours before and were waiting still for the food. One woman asked for her money back as she said it was unsafe - staff largely not wearing masks, and number queueing increasing by the minutes. Guy on counter refused to give her the money back, kept saying the food would be ready in 5 minutes. She walked out. After 45 minutes there - 90 minutes after ordering - I left and went to a different restaurant to order. Queue in Spice was now really unsafe, with more than 35 people waiting inside the small restaurant. This is a restaurant we order from weekly, but control and management was totally lacking, and it was unsafe. Really disappointing that they would so obviously flout the Goverrnment Covid-19 guidelines. I doubt I was the last to leave. Not. Good. Enough. No excusesMore

We love Spice. The staff are very warm and friendly and the food is delicious. The takeaway portions are also very generous and always come with compimentaty popodoms and chutney and raita. I am vegetarian and there are lots of vegetarian options which is great!...If you dine in, Spice is a relaxed and clean environment serving uo very tasty and filling indian food.More

Met with 3 friends for a rare catch up together. Normally go to another local Indian (they let you bring your own wine), however as Spice now allow this we changed venues as we have all eaten in Spice before and enjoyed it. The food......was ok. Looked good and was mainly tasty. My chicken tikka byriani was so spicy I struggled to eat it, and also didn’t come with the vegetable curry sauce as stated on the menu. When I queried this I was told you have to specifically request the sauce, and as the waitress then walked off I didn’t bother. I left most of my main dish. The service wasn’t very good. At no stage did I feel welcome, and although it wasn’t that busy, I still had to request a knife and fork for my main. When I asked about the curry sauce the reply given was very abrupt. we certainly didn’t get a smile or welcoming tone while we were there! Such a shame...More

Tried this place for the first time at the weekend and was really happy with it. Service was quick and really friendly. The portions are large and hearty. The sauces that came with the freebie poppadoms were delicious, be sure to try the neon green...one! And they also dropped by chunk of sweet potato in sauce that was delicious as an extra treat. I had prawns to start and himself had kebab. I then had a special duck dish and he had a special prawn dish. Got three sides, mushroom rice, veggie rice and Peshwari naan. My only regret is not getting a doggy bag for the lefotvers, as they were delicious, had just ran out of room in the belly! Will definitely return.More

Ordered the chicken dansak and asked for it spicier and sweeter and it came out perfect. My husband ordered a dansak too but wanted it more like a pathia and they said they could make him a pathia which he loved. And my cousin had...a regular dansak. Would recommend and will definitely come back soon.More
