We regularly visit the Spice Room and have been twice in the last month, once for a night out with friends and again for a family night out to celebrate Mother's day.

We enjoyed take-away here & it was great. The staff are friendly enough & it was very busy so that is usually a good sign. Our curries were fresh & tasty & the naan was perfect. If you're after some tasty Indian, get here ASAP.

I went here while on holiday with my 12 year old daughter, who loves a curry. We had the poppadoms, which are presented in a fun way. She didn't know any better, but I knew they are normally more or less flat! Fun. Tasty mains (we had chicken and vegetarian), good service. Seems popular with locals too - always a... More

Fantastic Indian meal - we had the venison curry (almost a rogan josh) and palak paneer. The mango lassi was also a highlight. Generous servings, but we didn't need a doggie bag because there were no leftovers!

Thank Nils H
