Another great meal!

We eat here fairly often and have done since they opened. Last week brought some family here. Food was top notch! Service from Rishi is always v friendly & others. We normally avoid 8pm at this place as it does get really busy on a Saturday night. 9/9:30 and its a lot less busy.

We visit Simla Spice regularly and always receive excellent food and service. Their Spring Onion Lamb and Tawa Dishes are particular favourites, the taste is amazing and the lamb literally melts in your mouth. I would recommend a visit.

Visited the Simla Spice twice last year and the food was great . This year the place was very disapointing we went on the 1st night that we arrived as we were late arriving in Torquay it was quite good and decided the week later when my family came we would all eat together there . The place was nearly... More

Poor service, poor food, poor decor. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone, you will truly regret it, £5 for 3 popadums, and £2 charge for taking food you've already paid for home!

I must say this is one of the most delicious spiced foods I have tasted . The portions are very generous, great selection of beers and has a great variety of food listed in the menus 👍🏼 I will be visiting again when back in Torquay !! 10/10

Found this place by chance and when back in Torquay will pay another visit to this eatery.The service was good and the meal was excellent.Both my wife and i find the right Indian food a bit hard to find that we like enormously but this did the trick.

We went to this restaurant after a recommendation and reading other reviews. It was refreshing to be made to feel very welcome. We thought the front of house was particularly outstanding. The food was very tasty, finger licking good and we felt the dishes we had and we're recommended were authentic. We ordered poppadums, dhaal, prawn tawa, tandoori prawns &... More

Lovely restaurant, modern contemporary furnishings. Polite staff. Beautiful food, reasonably priced. Usually visit once a year when holidaying in the area, never been disappointed.

Whilst having a break in Torquay I visited Simla Spice indian restaurant (04/07/15) This is the worst restaurant I have been too. The staff have no customer service skills what so ever. Very rude, arrogant and no communication skills. The waiter who took our order wasn't listening and ordered 2 butter chicken instead of chappati....didn't even attempt to make eye... More
