1st class service and food

When walk through the door we were warmly greeted with smile and very polite staff. The food was excellent and very well presented and service was also exceptional. We had a 40 mile round trip to travel here and would most certainly go again.

I come here on most weekends and love this place. The food and service is always 1st class. The naga chicken is a favourite and if you like it spicy then this is the dish to choose :)

My husband and I are locals and have been coming to (and ordering from!) Spice Lounge since it opened a number of years ago. It's by far my favourite Indian cuisine - and I'm sampled a lot. The contemporary twist to the dishes and the beautiful presentation makes it stand out, and the service is second to none. Nothing is... More

Back after a while away travelling and much better than we remembered. Great choice, atmosphere and service. Very good value for money as well. Strongly recommend and best Indian meal since we returned from Delhi.

I have eaten at Spice Lounge on a number of occasions and have loved it every time. I've tried many different dishes from their menu and they have all been delicious. The service is great and all the staff are very friendly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone!

We visited the Spice Lounge this week with a party of 30. All the food was hot and fresh, and it really was one of the best Indian meals I've had. The staff were helpful, friendly and accommodating. We will be back!!
