Recommended this place by my B&B and other people in the area. Authentic Indian restaurant that goes beyond the usual curry house. Food was excellent although service not the most attentive. I would be happy to eat here again.

Good service, not your usual CTM and Balti's. Local fish and meat with interesting sauces. Restaurant was very busy.

Great food, different to most other 'Indian' restaurants. This is in a great location on the seafront.

Sea Spice is a unique amalgamation of exotic Indian cooking within the quintessentially British coastal setting of Aldeburgh. Taking lead from the ancient Spice Route and Aldeburgh's historic role as a valued Tudor port, this new gourmet restaurant unites local Suffolk produce with classic Indian flavours originating some 4,000 miles away. Honouring the breadth and complexities of Indian cooking, Sea Spice offers guests an array of regional dishes from Goan inspired sea-food dishes, using locally caught fish, to tandoor grilled meats and traditional fragrant curries. In celebration of Suffolk's burgeoning craft-beer scene, there will be a curated list of locally brewed beers and ales, chosen specifically to complement the contemporary menu.
