My first visit to Tale of Spice. I was a bit daunted to find two very large party's already seated. But to my surprise my order was served taken quickly and my food arrived shortly afterwards. Prawn Puree was with made king prawns and they were a little chewy, but that can be a problem with big prawns, Chicken Tikka... More

The food was vile - my meal was supposed to be one of the Chef's Specials but the lamb was tough, gristly and tasted like it had already been cooked several times. Not all of it tasted like lamb. It was swimming in a bowlful of sickly gloopy soup that had nothing else solid in it except a single small... More

Came here with my parents for an evening meal but we have also had takeaways from here. Curries are always excellent, well spiced with good meat & vegetables used. The chicken shaslick is excellent, beautiful pieces of tasty chicken in a spicy marinade. Will return.

I placed my order at 1840 on New Year's Eve and was happy with the wait of 52 mins due to the days event. I even paid a £5 delivery charge for the delivery to turn up 20 mins late and missing 1 main meal. When I contacted the restaurant they said could I not make do without the main... More

We booked in advance as a party of eight. The service was extremely slow. From when we arrived, all we got for 1 hrs 45 mins was drinks and popadoms, until finally the food arrived. Included in this was a "fawlty towers" moment, when the dish warmers were put on our table, only to be whisked away two minutes later... More

Booked at 6.45pm for a party of 7 people and sat down at 7pm. Interesting, different, and wide selection of dishes - but the usual dishes were also there. The service to take our order was prompt and food came quickly to the table. Being a Saturday, the restaurant was full to heaving by 8pm. £16 per head including drinks... More

Forty minutes later waiter then came to take order.... More

What a superb Indian restaurant. Did a quick search to look for nearby Indian restaurants and decided to give this one a go. What a delight. We were welcomed upon entering the nicely decorated restaurant and shown to a table. Service was good and the food was delicious. From the popadom, via the onion baji to the curry it was... More
