Great Indian food and offer a buffet as well. The buffet was not of a low quality but a good standard. Waiter was very friendly and helpful. Recommended for a visit if you enjoy Indian food.

We ended up here Easter Saturday when the place our hotel recommended was full . The place was fairly empty when we arrived (7:30) except for about a dozen drunks at what was probably a stag dinner . So things did not look good . However the staff treated us very well . The food was quite good though it... More

We tried 4 dishes and enjoyed them all. The sizzling prawns were lovely and hot, the other dishes could have been hotter. Nice atmosphere and good service.

Appalling service. Took hour to take order. Another hour for food. Then refused discount card having agreed it at arrival. Pity.

Had a lovely meal here. They had a special offer as it was a Tuesday which was a starter, main meal and rice/naan for £10.99. The food was hot and delicious. Nice and spicy, but tasty too. Service was friendly and efficient. Would go again.

Went to this restaurant with no particular expectations if anything other than a standard hopefully acceptable curry.The restaurant exceeded expectations- all dishes were very good indeed and I will certainly go back there . Good friendly service. If there were problems in the past ( several bad reviews in 2013) I found no evidence of anything to complain about.

Had a lovely meal here on a short holiday in Torquay. Lamb Jalfrezi was excellent as was the Chicken Rogan Josh my partner had. The only reason I have not given a 5 star rating is that the nan bread was a little small for me.

A neighbour suggested a visit to Simla Spice. I was a little wary of ANY Indian restaurant in Torquay to be honest after having been thrown out of the "restaurant" across the street from them the maha Barrett because they decided they didn't want to stay open. (Don't take a booking for 11 pm then!) anyway ....back to Simla Spice.... More
