I have eaten here loads of times now and have never had a meal that was not up to scratch starters, main course, rice, naan bread, coffee and a bottle of wine, seriously full up all for £33.

Ate here on our trip to Beer. The food was of a high standard and very tasty even for an Indian. It took them quite a while to serve the meal as they were very busy (they do take away and there were numerous clients waiting). I would suggest some management coaching with the staff organisation as sometimes it felt... More

We were served by 2 waiters, one was lovely and made a fuss over the children and made us feel welcome, the other was a bit abrupt and looked fed up.

good quality indian restaurant, so much better than the rubbish served up in bournemouth. great service with a smile,plenty of time between courses, which i think is a bonus, have visited so many indians that seem to want a quick turn round and you are made to feel uncomfortably if you want to chill, no such problem at the spice...

We had the misfortune of eating at the restaurant & I strongly recommend that you avoid it at ALL costs! The staff have no concept of good service which was apparent when it took them over 15 minutes just to take our drinks order. The poppadoms were served without plates & were finally brought to us after the third request.... More

We went on a particularly busy evening, excellent meal and pleasant surroundings. Because it was busy the service was a little slow, but apologies given.

Had a very good meal in this restaurant at a reasonable price. The service was warm and welcoming. Decor is in need of an update - I thought it could have been a bit more plush but the food made up for this
