Staff are friendly, Love the food but every time i come here the wait is ridiculous as they want to maximise the drink sales! Also the portion sizes should be bigger

A surprise night out with my husband. He had booked for 7.45 - table was ready and water arrived almost immediately. Food great; service excellent and staff attentive but not intrusive. My husband requested a dish off the menu as he travels to India frequently and has his favourites....it appeared with no trouble. Great!

Had heard a lot of good things about the Spice Garden, and finally got around to trying it when my brother and his wife were visiting from London. We booked online and our table was ready when we arrived. We have all eaten at quite a few Indian restaurants around the country, and aren't particularly easy to please, but we... More

We pre booked a table for the 4 of us for my Dads birthday. We were told they only had 8:30 which was fine as we were going to the pub before-hand. When we arrived at 8:25 we were offered drinks and were asked politely to wait over in the corner. It got to 8:40 and we started to look... More

Well thats how it felt. We booked a table for 2, we were offered drinks and pomperdoms straight away, they took a while take our order. The food was lovely and can not beaten. But then our plates were taken and 2 chocolates appeared. Then we were just asking about the lack of indian icecream, our bill arrived, we were... More

I will not be going back. The food was pretty good but the service was hopeless bordering on rude. When we arrived it was very quiet but service was extremely slow and was much worse as evening progressed and tables filled. Worse than the lateness was the offhand manner of most of the staff including the lady who was possibly... More

Unsure why this restaurant gets such good reviews? Terrible service,unenthusiastic staff and inattentive staff. Food-starters-below average and meat samosas were definitely not fresh-couldn't eat more than a mouthful. We had one good main dish out of 8,and that was the tandoori prawns,of which you only got 4 for a main!! Definitely wouldn't recommend and won't be back!

We popped in last night for a meal having booked a table about twenty minutes earlier. On getting there we were virtually ignored for a couple of minutes before being seated. Starters arrived quickly but the mains took pretty much an hour to turn up albeit the restaurant was almost full. Sadly the curry was bland and tasteless- portion size... More
