On a visit to Oxford, my wife and I sought out a good Indian restaurant for dinner. We were delighted to discover this restaurant. The staff were welcoming, the table service was very good and our meal was excellent. In fact, we are visiting from New Zealand, and I cannot recall having enjoyed such a flavoursome Indian dinner back in... More

We originally intended to go to Saffron, but as they were fully booked we went to the Spice Lounge. The welcome was very warm and friendly, and as they were very busy we were asked to wait in the entrance area, which could do with a bit of smarting up. After a wait of about 10 minutes we were shown... More

This was a first visit by my husband and myself, we used an Amazon Local voucher, the food was excellent and the staff were among the friendliest we have ever met in a restaurant, nothing was too much trouble, we also enjoyed a bit of banter with them, which helped to make a great evening even better, we will certainly...

The Spice Lounge is actually in Summertown... Just outside of Oxford. A quick cab ride from the center of Oxford ... a short trip worth taking! The food was beyond exceptional! We asked for a tasting of their best dishes... and, we were not disappointed by anything. Every dish was expertly prepared... each with its own distinct layers of flavors... More

Situated in trendy Summertown in Oxford, a warm friendly welcome with friendly service and a comprehensive menu cooked to high standards. Generous portions. A cool and pleasant atmosphere. Will need to book at peak times. I should go there more often to satisfy my desire for "Indian" food and you should too! Off road parking only.

We chose to visit Spice Lounge based on previous Trip Advisor reviews and it's 5 star Scores on the Doors hygiene rating. I'm definitely glad we did ! The restaurant is cosy, contemporary & clean. The staff were welcoming and helpful without being intrusive and most importantly, the food was delicious. We had three separate dishes for our main meals... More

A very enjoyable evening the attention to all our needs and request were met with a smile and always a positive attitude. The presentation of the food was very good and was full of flavor and taste and the overall service was excellent. A very friendly environment to be recommended to others.

While in Oxford, we discovered this restaurant and it was so enjoyable that we returned on a few occasions. The menu is very elaborate and the personnel is very knowledgeable to guide you with your choice. They will match the food to your taste bubs and the aromas and flavors are to die for. A must while in Oxford.

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...
