Never recommend this restaurant to anybody. There are hidden prices and is misleading. I ordered mixed grill platter and was charged £28 for a small portion. It was written £14 per platter minimum for two people. Staff didn't clarify when order was placed but yes...More

Dear Ajay G, Comments like this are very rare as the sharing platter portions are large. There is the option however of ordering two sharing platters if one isn't enough. It is also very clear from the menu (having written it myself) that the price...More

Description
This chic restaurant in Bucks is one of a small chain of classy Indian restaurants across the south east founded by Bashir Islam. Bashir has been part of the industry for over 30 years and wants you to enjoy yourself. Well, if he insists... This is where the Spice Merchant Group Chef, Vijay Anand, is based, so you get to savour dishes made with his own highly-experienced hands. You can't go wrong if you start with his bataki nazrana - tender tandoori duck and potatoes encased in filo pastry, served with a sweet n' spicy red onion and mango chutney. For a refreshingly different main course order the mirchi ka kekda - peppers stuffed with kerala-style flaked crab meat served with a fabulous febugreek flavoured sauce. Plenty of veggie options and tandoori specials too. The Spice Merchant has won various awards, the latest being an award for the best and innovative restaurant in the South.
