Tasty food, chaotic service.

Went for a meal at the Spice Lounge on a Friday evening as a group of ten. We had booked our table in advance but still had about a ten minute wait for our table downstairs. The place was packed full of mainly loud groups of beered-up men glowing under the neon lighting, however once we were seated... read more

Visited Spice Lounge with a group from work on a Thursday evening. Was impressed on arrival by the nice decor and friendly staff. We were seated at a table that was sandwich between two large groups, so at times it was hard to understand each other, however by the time the groups left it was much better. There was a... More

I've been here a couple of times and I have to say the food is good. The staff on the other hand, seem odd. One waiter quite blatantly put his hand over a side dish full of food (he might as well scopped it out with his bare hands) and put it on a different part of the table to... More

We live fairly near to the restaurant and have eaten there once, and had takeaways a few times, which have never disappointed. Tonight however, after waiting for our takeaway for about five minutes, whilst taking advantage of free beer, we got back home which was a five minute walk and realised the order was wrong. We called straight away and... More

Haven't had the chance to eat here for a while. Fab meal and excellent service. Good to see standards haven't changed.

We had the best Indian meal ever last night & we have had quite few all over the UK. The food is excellent, the staff are very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be going here again.

Always walked past, never entered, thought I'd give it a go. Popped in on a Saturday night at 19:30 to order a takeout. It was absolutely packed, but as soon as I entered I was greeted warmly and my order was taken. I had anticipated having to come back later for collection, or to be flatly refused given the number...

We eat out a lot and over the years we've tried just about every Indian restaurant in Norwich, but the Spice Lounge is easily our favourite. The food is of a very high standard and consistently so, even on very busy nights. The staff are friendly, helpful and attentive. The menu has all the firm favourites, but also offers dishes...

Recommended by our hotel we had an outstanding meal at the Spice Lounge last Friday night. Warmly greeted by the team, the ambience, styling, food and service were all fantastic. Wish there was a Spice Lounge in Chichester! Special mention and thanks to Mohammad - a fantastic asset to the Spice Lounge team. Can't wait to go back when next... More

I am treated to lunches by a friend and keep going back drawn by the excellent cuisine and the friendly staff. Birani, Korma, and Tandoori Paneer are just a few favourites always complimented by pilau rice and a range of nan breads, and of course, the popadom starter with a selection of pickles. I am back in my beloved India.
