We heard from our hotel staff that the ownership of this restaurant has been changing hands, so the reviews keep changing too. But we thought that the food was excellent, and the restaurant is nice & bright.

At £9.95 did not expect a lot for the all you can eat buffet. Must admit it did not look exciting in all those tin pots however once we started it was very good. Plenty selection with hot and mild curries and tasty chicken wings. Would have liked popadoms and perhaps chicken tikka however it was really good value and... More

We were disappointed that on a spiciness scale of mild-medium-hot, our meal was sub-zero. We were very disappointed. On the other hand, kudos to the management for spotlessly clean restrooms.

We were visiting the area and fancied Indian food so I had a look on Trip Advisor and Google to see what choice we had. I found Simla Spice and after reading some fairly good reviews we decided to go for this one as the buffet offered a choice of over 30 dishes! When we arrived the restaurant was completely... More

Visited this Indian restaurant recently with some work colleagues whilst I was in the area on business. The food menu was very varied and very traditional, with lots of choice. The food was very well presented and tasted excellent, from the starters all the way through to the sweets, and the staff were very informative and very attentive at all... More
