Best Indian Food

This is definately one of the best Indian restaurants I have eaten in, including ones in New York & London! I even loved the popadums and I usually don't like those. Fresh, authentic and reasonably priced for the Cayman Islands. The staff is warm and friendly. Just the best!

I'll say one thing - the man in the kitchen - as directed by the owner - sure knows how to grind fresh spice. I ordered the saag lamb. One could argue about whether the lamb was the highest grade ever or cooked long enough or low enough to be mouth wateringly tender but let me say that there was... More

We used the Dine In option at our vacation condo to order from Southern spice. We are big fans of Indian food. We thought the food was excellent and could easily rival some of the best Indian food we have had both in the US and England. The chicken tikka masala was spicy but not overwhelmingly so and the chicken... More

Our mistake was asking for it mild... really should have asked for medium to impart more flavor. Great portion sizes.

Great authentic Indian food. Large portions (two meals easily). Servers asked how spicy we wanted the food. We like spice and they really delivered. Service is quick and attentive. We came in early for dinner (6pm) and were the only people in the restaurant. By 6:30 there were four other tables there and by 7 significantly more tables were filled.

We have passed this place many times and been put off by the seedy out side appearance-how wrong were we. The inside is light and airy, with tables nicely spaced. Great menu concept, includes a drink with the main course. We had a great Mango Chicken plus Lamb rogon Josh (and it was tasty real Lamb) all served with saffron... More

A group of us had dinner at Southern Spice. Very good and efficient service. I gave eaten at many Indian restaurants and very familiar with the Indian menu. Their food was delicious. The naan was very good. Good menu selection also. The only complaint I would say is that the portions were very large. Two persons can comfortably eat in... More

Food was very authentic Indian food. The staff was very attentive. Nice décor. I would definitely re-visit the next time I am in the Caymans.

After reading the reviews & loving indian food we ventured to Southern Spice. We were greeted & seated right away. A Complimentary chick pea dish, papadums & chutney to start. I'm not a fan of papadums but these were very thin, crispy & delicious. The butter chicken done medium was piping hot & tasty! the chicken vindaloo had a great... More
