Always a friendly welcome at The Spice Lounge! A comprehensive menu, but still the staff are happy to tweak the dishes to individual tastes (my personal favourite is chicken tikka masala, madras hot!) No matter how busy The Lounge gets, you never feel under pressure to vacate your table. The service is always friendly, but discreet, and the staff are... More

I don't know how this place isn't full all the time, it's one of the nicest, most authentic currys I've had outside India. The staff are helpful and polite too with advice on flavours if you want it I would highly recommend

Following my recent visit to a restaurant in Lincolnshire of this name I decided to try this local restaurant. A typical Indian restaurant with all the over attentiveness that this entails, I'm over 50 for goodness sake and I am more than capable of putting a napkin on my lap and believe it or not I am also capable of...

The Spice Lounge is my local curry house - never disappointed; lovely staff, friendly and informative for diners with dietary restrictions.

The difference with this restaurant is in the taste...eating curry here is the closest you'll find to actually going to India to eat. The chef grinds his own spices and you can taste the difference. This is not a 'run of the mill' curry house, this is the 'real deal'... Yes the prices are slightly higher than your average but... More

This just seemed very run of the mill Indian restaurant. I have been to better and worse. Some dishes were a bit greasy for my taste, others were pretty good. Service was friendly.

We have been eating in this restaurant for years now. The food is consistently good. The restaurant now has a contemporary look. Laminate flooring, leather upholstered chairs and neutral walls. The staff are always welcoming. The service is swift. The china is white with a modern twist. We've also had takeaways from here from time to time which have always... More

This is our favourite Indian takeaway in town. The portions are huge and there is a lot of variety on the menu with some unusual dishes that you don't see at other restaurants. We tend to have takeaway rather than eat in so can't review the seating etc but do give it a go.
