Right in the centre of town on the first floor, with downstairs toilets. The stair carpet might benefit from replacing, but don't be deterred by the initial appearance.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here when visiting Thurso for work. Fabulous choice on the menu with some interesting and different dishes to choose from. We all enjoyed our meals. The service was also excellent. We were made so welcome and there wasn't anything that couldn't be done for us. Excellent service and with a smile!

Friendly helpful staff and great food. Recommend Spice to everyone. Tucked away and don't let going upstairs put you off! Clean and well laid out.

We arrived with friends and all ordered completely different curries then shared. Unfortunately all 4 dishes tasted exactly the same! Good service and very attentive. Good food too, but disappointing to find all curries tasting the same!

Don't be put off by the carpet on the stairs when you arrive at this restaurant as the food and staff are fab and can't do enough for you. Book ahead if you need a table at the weekend as its really busy.
