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

Well, I cannot understand the last four reviews and quite frankly, they are similar that they are in my opinion written by this restaurant's competitors.How odd that the reviewers appear to be 'Asian'!! I am a 'GENUINE' customer and believe allowing those last four review, is grossly unfair on probably one of the finest Indians in town. I called in... More

Visited Torquay for the holidays and tried this place. The food was very bland and sweet and not at all Indian! Never, ever come to dine here if you are looking to enjoy authentic Indian food. To Top the awful food was the even awful poor service and lack of smiles from any of the staff even with two young... More

I'm an Indian and have lived in Mumbai for 35 years. So I can with authority say that what we were served was not indian food, sweet heavy curries were not indian curries. The service was pathetic, the waiter had to reminded for water 3 times. We had to wait an hour for our food. He was very unpleasant to... More
