Excellent catering for our event.

Spice Merchants provided a hot buffet for our son's naming ceremony. Without fail, our guest commented positively about the quality and tastiness of the dishes. They delivered food to the venue, which was 20 minutes outside of Southsea and were extremely helpful and accommodating.

Great Resturant. Really loved coming here while staying in Portsmouth for a year. Really nice flavours and the best Indian in Portsmouth. Highly recommend. Prawn Krahi is awesome.

I decided to visit Spice Merchants purely because I was hungry and when I walked past I liked the look of the place. Not too busy, table available by the window... The food was excellent, lots of choice and served at a relaxed pace. There was a bit too much for me so I took the rest home. Great value... More

Been to nearly all Indian restaurants and sampled all local takeaways to find our favourite in Portsmouth. Spice Merchants beats them all hands down! The standard popular dishes are clean and very tasty. However the variety of the menu is exceptional! Id never consider seafood for curry but I heard it specialises in seafood so went for it. WOW!!

Went here after somebody at our hotel recommended it and we were curious as to what the restaurant had to offer. We went on a Wednesday night and the place was still relatively busy for a weekday, filled with people of all ages. The menu has a large variety and very reasonably priced. One of us went for a duck... More

Found by accident but a great find. The food was great and the cost reasonable. Recommended if you want choice.

This was the best curry I've had in years. There is a wide choice of curries with some specials as well as the more traditional options and a lot of fish dishes. A choice of draught beers and really good service in a relaxed atmosphere.

The Naan bread was cooked to perfection. The waiter was helpful as my mother wanted to try something new but wasn't sure what to have. Nice interior, well presented dishes, it's always busy which is a good sign!
