Really nice decor but was a little loud being so close to the street. Overall the food was excellent but a little pricey. We thoroughly enjoyed everything we had and the staff were great. The owner also came to check on us which is always nice.

This is (at time of writing) the top rated Rodney Bay restaurant. The food was well cooked, nice and hot and served well. Just did not make our top restaurant as we had better meals in Rodney Bay.

We went there on May 7, 2015. The food was good and plentiful. The staff was pleasant and made recommendations to my friend who had never had Indian food before.

Huge choice of amazing dishes, we had a goat curry and saffron chicken. Delicious. I have a tomato allergy and as always they're attentive to dietary needs. It's our 4th visit and always as good. See you again soon

As a fan of Indian/Himalayan food, this blew my mind. We found THE BEST we have ever had in Rodney Bay on St Lucia. Spice of India is absolutely divine. Great drinks as well.

The food is literally the best indian ive ever had. I ate here a 2 years ago and had a short conversation with the owner. During my meal on my last trip (lunch), he casually walked up and greeted me by my first name. That blew me away. A true restauranteur who takes pride is his product.

Loved this place. Usually when I order an Indian dish back in the States as spicy as they can make it, it never comes out that strong. However, i used that same methodology down here (chicken vindaloo in this case) it came out blazing! Food was not just spicy how i like it, but also very flavorful and all around... More
