If you want a decent curry in Portsmouth this the place to come to. They had such a huge selection of dishes I didn't know what to choose. In the end I ordered a starter, a few sides and a medium spiced curry. All the food was really good and full of flavour. Also the staff were really friendly.

Quite simply incredible! Have been twice now, once as a couple and once as a family group. Both times we have not needed to look any further than the fish and seafood section of the menu- so much choice! Bengal fish and Coconut Chilli Halibut particularly impressive and can also recommend Crab Puri as a starter. Service was really warm,... More

My friends and I had a great time in this restaurant, the food is very tasty and not expensive at all !! I recommend it to every person who wants to taste some real Indian food in a quiet place ! The only negative point, is maybe the long time we waited between each meal. Nevertheless the waiters are very... More

Came here with my partner for a last minute meal on bank holiday. We were seen to straight away by a very friendly man. Our order was taken for drinks very quickly which we didn't have to wait for to arrive. All staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. Both meals were delicious and very...

First of all the service here was first class. Secondly the food was fantastic. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meal, so much so we were tempted to eat there two nights in a row out of a three night stay in the area! The prices were also more than reasonable.

My favourite Indian restaurant in Portsmouth. Great staff and fantastic food. I visit regularly with my partner and I'm never let down. My favourite meals are the masalas and the biryanis; there full of flavour. The onion bhajis, Bombay potatoes, chicken tikka and the variety of naan breads are great side orders too. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to... More

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
