Wonderful Restaurant

My wife and I had a wonderful, faultless meal with incredible service. I would strongly recommend this restaurant. Parking is available, directly across the road as pay and display.

Visited this restaurant after glancing at reviews on TripAdvisor. Very, very slow and unattentive service. Was charged £1.95 for plain water! Ordered Jhall Lamb for starters, which consisted of four small pieces of lamb, priced at £5.95! Had King Prawn Jalfrezi priced at £12.95 which consisted of only four small pieces of Prawn - definitely not "King Prawn" and it... More

I was brought a Groupon lunch voucher for my birthday last year for this restaurant. The voucher was foe a set menu and was excellent and we have been back to the restaurant twice more and enjoyed the food.

I have eaten here many times over the years, the first thing you notice is the big smiles from the staff and the welcome they all give you. Nothing is too much trouble and the food is amazing. Always very high quality and served with a smile.

If you have restaurateurs who love food, who are passionate and enthusiastic about cuisine, and want to share it with other people, then you can be sure of a memorable meal. I've been to the Spice Lounge twice over the last few days, first as part of a large group (over 50) when we had a buffet, the second with... More

We were a party of 54 at the Spice Lounge for our annual pre-conference curry night. I had discussed this with the manager before-hand and he was really helpful, so they were all set up and ready for us, and produced the most amazing selection of meat/veggie/vegan dishes - and everyone was very happy. Even though we were a big... More

I went on the same night as another reviewer (Saturday 31st Jan) and had a completely different experience. Service was fast and food was very good. We asked for a recommendation of a dish and got a very tasty garlic chicken. My vegetable jalfrezi had plenty of spice and nice veg (not old leftovers you can sometimes get with other... More
