Great food,especially the seasonal specials. None of that nasty greasiness that you get in some Bangladeshi/Indian restuarants and food tastes fresh and delicious. Add to that the marvelous Moody as your host. It would be hard to find a more considerate and friendly Maitre D. A good choice of wine. Ridiculously cheap prices. We used to live locally and visit...

I had a take away from the Spice of Life a couple of weeks ago. This site ranks it as one of the best 20 restaurants in London, but to me it seemed like a below par Indian take away. The restaurant itself was small though had a pretty big screen showing football when I went in. Fine if you... More

I moved to the area a few months ago looking for a local takeaway and discovered Spice of Life just across the road. Tried it once and have been going back almost every week! The food is phenomenal, have tried most of the curries from teh tikka masala to the vindaloo (highly recommended!) and yet to find one I don't... More

I had fond memories of the SoL - I visited nearly every Friday night when I lived in the area back in the late '80s. So I was delighted to find that it was still going strong. Have been visiting again regularly to enjoy fresh tasty food, reasonably priced. There is a set menu which is very good value. The... More

My favourite curry house in South East London, sadly I don't get there enough but when I do I'm never disappointed.A friend let me down at the last minute and I really didn't want to eat on my own, but I'd been looking forward so much to going that I chose to go, and wow, was it a good choice...

This is the first review I have written on Spice of Life in Lewisham, but not the first time I've had the pleasure to dine there. What strikes me about this restaurant is how utterly reliable it is. It offers tasty, well-presented and moderately-priced dishes on every visit. I've always wondered why Moody hasn't just taken out a bank loan... More
