The vegetable stuffed Dora's were mostly comprised of the lentil and chickpea wrap with a very skimpy portion of vegetables inside. The service was extremely poor.

This was our second visit, I was so glad we went. The proprietor was very friendly and easy to talk to, and the restaurant had a relaxed atmosphere. We ordered Samosas, which turned out to be my favorite...the best I've ever had. They were served with tamarind and mints sauces which were perfect. As our entrees Chicken Tikka Masala and... More

Excellent Indian food. I'm from NYC and this place is a gem and this place holds their own with the best. Workers are so polite. My only single issue is that the food isn't cheap and they should provide you with more than one cheap, flimsy napkin with the meal. I fortunately brought my own hand cleansing wipes. If not...

Good Indian food, but not on gulf drive anymore. It's next to the Publix grocery store. Looks like they have a lunch buffet. Very affordable as well.

Same ownership more staff visible, more seating but most importantly still the same great food. Few Indian restaurants prepare and cook to the palate, normally mild medium or hot, but Island Spice has always gone further and prepared the food to the taste requested. As happy to highly recommend as we are to return ourselves. A must eat here on... More

Fantastic freshly cooked food, all of which was absolutely delicious. Took a little while to come so don't expect fast food it is cooked to order but that suited us much better as we don't like to be rushed through our meal! Appetisers were a cauliflower special (on the board) and vegetable samosas, homemade I should think and best I've... More
