It was a take away, the first customer I assume. Took incredible long time. Got home Kurma, was ok but the Jalfazie was swimming in oil. Not edible. Phoned them and they sent some one to collect the dinner after they got lost hoping they would help with a new meal. I had just returned home after been away for... More

Ordered a takeaway from Spice as a special birthday treat. We got three totally different dishes.. all of which looked and smelt really good however when we dished up and starting eating, none of us could eat more than a couple of forkfuls. It tasted as if someone had poured a full jar of salt into it... Totally inedible. We... More

I got a delicious chicken curry with rice lunch time special. Great value at £4.95. The chicken was cooked perfectly and the sauce was spicy and tasty. They do a banquet last Sunday of month for £9.95. Going to book in!!

Best local Indian restaurant. Food is always fantastic and staff are lovely. The 3 course special is great value for money. Highly recommend if you're a fan of Indian food.

Yet another lovely family takeaway. 2x currys and sides for under £10 is a great offer for that mid - week treat without breaking the bank. Ordered chicken tikka masala and lamb jalfrezi which really complemented each other. Jalfrezi had just the right amount of heat. Portion sizes really good. Will be back again.

Disclaimer: As an Indian and a decent cook, I am biased towards good Indian food. Hence when I eat Indian food during travel, I usually expect less than authentic (since the menu is usually geared towards the delicate palates) and lacks the typical punch associated with Indian spices. Happy to report that Spice did not disappoint. Both my better half... More
