This restaurant offers buffet with over 100 different items. Very good food, fresh and tasty. So busy that we had to wait half an hour for the table.

Visited with group of 8 people and food is always tasty. Sitting arrangements are good enough and now they start taking cards so absolutely perfect.

The food was extremely tasty and I couldn't stop myself from eating until I was full. My entire family (80 people) enjoyed it too, and the service was excellent. The dishes are very varied and I especially enjoyed the chicken corn soup (recommend it to everyone) I would certainly recommend this restaurant/buffet.

We booked a table of 12, 4 days ago... Only to arrive to be taken to the table attached.... Absolute embarrassment to our guests. When we complained, the manager was extremely rude... How can any "restaurant" place 12 customers on such terrible looking tables, in a back room next to a toilet and kitchen door... How can any respectable restaurant... More

On our arrival we were warmly greeted. The range of dishes and their flavours were excellent. Also, the staff were very considerate. We highly recommend them and look forward to our next return visit.

Here's my honest review of spice village in Ilford...... Upon arriving to the restaurant, I notice a bouncy castle, I'm guessing its for the kids...... From the outside of the restaurant, it looks like any other ordinary indian establishment, however upon entering you will most likely notice the decor as its like something you would find from a bollywood film...

The food and the staff are amazing. The pilau in particular, as well as the lamb karahi, tantalised my tastebuds! Great selection of food, but the desserts are the best thing about this place!
