Spice has great fresh food!

My husband and I enjoyed a terrific dinner at Spice, ordering off the a la carte menu during Barriefest. I had the prawns; he had the chicken; both came sizzling on a bed of onions. The na'an, rice with saffron, and several sauces were all excellently prepared. We've been meaning to try this place... read more

My husband and I love Indian food. We had tickets for a performance in Barrie yesterday, Valentine's Day, so searched online for great reviews on Barrie Indian restaurants. The food was poorly prepared and tasteless, plus service was abysmal and unprofessional. Ambiance okay.

Food is always fantastic. My only suggestion to staff would be to keep the buffet full. Most times at least one item needs replenishment.

Being Indian I've always had to head to Mississauga or Brampton for authentic fare over the years had kind of giving up on finding good authentic Indian food in Barrie but was pleasently surprised when we tried this place. The food was excellent fresh and hot(temp) not overly oily or spicy. Was surprised to hear it's been here for 4... More

I won't be eating here again, unless perhaps it's for the lunch buffet. I used to eat here regularly, both in the restaurant and ordering in at home, but after the last couple of experiences I doubt I'll be back. The food was poor and the portions very small. I used to love this place but it's really gone downhill... More

We on occasion go for the lunch buffet, the food is always excellent. The only criticism I would have for the buffet is that they are slow on replacing things when they run out. Other than that it is an excellent place!

We took advantage of a discount offer and decided to give Spice a try. Ordered take out, which was ready right on time. Had the dinner for four which included : Tandoori Chicken (Appetizer), Butter Chicken, Lamb Rogan Josh, Vegetable Korma, Paneer Tikka Masala, Vegetable Biriyani, Safron Rice, Bread Basket (Peshwari Naan, Garlic, Naan, Roti, Plain Naan) All were delicious...

I was concerned with some of the more recent reviews suggesting that service was lacking. We arrived at shortly after 5 PM and were the only customers in the restaurant. Our waitress immediately placed us at a table and brought us menus. From the time we placed our order to the time the food was on the table was about... More
