We stopped in for lunch and we were greeted by a friendly face! I had a deliciously refreshing minty beverage and my friend has a chai tea that was delicious. We ate a lunch of a sampling of Indian food one vegetarian and one chicken and both were very tasty and the serving size was just perfect!

Ok if you are English we won't call this an Indian, because it's nothing like back home..... When you walk in it feels more like a take away than a sit down restaurant. Yes it's got tables and chairs, but it has the ambience of a doctors waiting room, so let's all move on and talk about the food which... More

We last visited when they first opened. The menu was limited and service wasn't great. I'm glad to say their menu has expanded greatly and service was great! Every dish had great flavors and the amount of fish on the menu reminds you that you're on the beach! Prices are very reasonable.

Started a tradition last time on AMI to have our 1st dinner at Island Spice. It's not very large inside, but the polite & friendly service can't be beat. Authentic Indian food & can be adjusted to your taste of heat. OH will order lunches to go as he loves the food. Very delicious & will keep the tradition going... More

I'm a huge fan of Indian food. Every place I travel look for Indian food. The naam excellent. Samosa were so good and the vindaloo fish spicy and rich. Indian beers also an option and match perfectly with the food. Highly recommended.

Discovered Island Spice on returning from a wedding party on Anna Marie Island. You might miss it if you're driving too fast....it sits on the east side of the street on a corner with parking along its south side. Hibiscus bloom along the wall of this humble shop. The owner and his son are professional and very polite. The menu... More

I am a vegetarian, so when my family was grilling out steaks , I knew it was my opportunity to try Island Spice! I got take out, it was hot and exactly what I ordered. I had the Mutter Paneer and garlic Naan. WOW! I am embarrassed to say.... But I ate it ALL. I cannot wait to return to... More

You may not think you like Indian food, but at this restaurant, I'll bet you will. We ate there in a group of six. Two of the guests regularly eat Indian food and two almost never eat it. That will change! All six guests in our group raved about their meals. Since I was nervous about spicey food, the manager... More

We had the pleasure of visiting Island Spice again today, and it really was a perfect meal. We had been there again since our last review, with a large party who also loved it. I wanted to write another review to share how wonderful the butter chicken was. I have tried this dish in other restaurants and liked it so-so.... More
