Visited for a Sunday evening meal. Only a few diners but the food was excellent. Good choice for vegetarians and non vegetarians alike. The meals can be prepared to your own taste in terms of spice. Good service with staff friendly and welcoming. Large seating area downstairs, with bar on the ground floor. My only disappointment was the cheese stuffed... More

They do a quick and simple option for lunch, on the low side of prices for similar establishments in Oxford. I had the vegetarian curry option; but I added a couple of poppadoms, a large sparking water and coffee...........expecting those to put the price up to nearer £20 ( as often happens when you add on to the basic lunch...

My partner and myself have eaten at the Spice Lounge for the past 4 years, it's always been a pleasant experience, food and service being excellent. Wouldn't consider eating similar food anywhere else in Oxford.

During my stay in Oxoford, I discovered this calm and delicious restaurant. Food is great and also all the recommendations from staff were excellent. When you're in Oxford don't hesitate and go there.

Spice lounge justifies its name. If you are looking for really spicy Indian cuisine, then do try Spice lounge. They have very hospitable staff to make your dining more pleasurable. Chef can tailor the spicy content according to your requirement, mild - hot as you request. For vegetarians my recommendation is try Rajma (ask them to make it spicy if... More

This is the best Indian restaurant in Oxford and I visit regularly. The food is excellent - I love the CHICKEN SHASHLICK MOSSALOM - what with the beautiful presentation of the food, the contemporary décor and best of all THE FANTASTIC STAFF who make Spice Lounge what it is.

We were recommended to the Spice Lounge by the manager of our nearby uni accommodation and are grateful to him for an excellent evening. The food was was well prepared and presented with very good service. All the dishes we had were very tasty without being overpowering. The wine was good. Only the coffee was unacceptable but by then we... More

The food at Spice Lounge was really very strong, from the naan, to the rice but most importantly the curry. I would recommend their Naga chilli curry, it is hot but the flavours are awesome. Aside from the food, the service was exceptional, the restaurant is clean but the portions are a little small (don't share a rice with someone... More

Very interesting menu in terms of lots of cuisine information and unusual dishes and would have liked more time to absorb it all and make a more considered choice. Extremely fast service (pity, as we were trying to linger to kill time in North Oxford), for example starters swept to one side because mains were ready and already wiping down... More
