The Spice Lounge hosted our wedding reception (which everyone said was different) - it was amazing and really made our day special, with great food, wonderful atmosphere and the staff couldn't do enough for us. We continue to go there and take our friends from around the world, as the food is always good and so tasty (and reasonable), the... More

Doesn't look much from the outside but well decorated inside with good artwork. Quiet when we went so was a little worried but soon starred to fill up and people seemed to be regulars which is a good sign for any restaurant. Had different options as well as the normal Indians you get. Waiter helped make some choices as my... More

I cannot stress enough just how good the food is here. We found this restaurant by accident and boy am I glad we did. I really like Indian food but prefer spicy to heat and the joy of The Spice Lounge is that the waiter (AJ) listened to our preferences, made some choices for us and said he would speak... More

The restaurant is situated it the Summertown area of Oxford. The staff are friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them. The seating is spacious and you are not sitting on top of the opposite table. The food is excellent and nicely presented. On the whole i would recommend this restaurant as a good place to go...

From the beautiful city of Utrecht in the Netherlands we went on for a trip to Oxford. One of us had already been here and strongly recommend this place. We all took different plates and let the owner choose for us. I can only say he did a perfect job. The food was wonderful. Don't judge a book by it's... More

I had just about given up finding a curry house in Summertown when the Spice Lounge appeared as if a mirage! I've lived in Leicester for a number of years so I confess I have unfortunately become a rather demanding curry consumer because the lowest standard there is often higher than a good standard elsewhere. I try not to expect... More

We chose this because it was close to the hotel. I'm so glad we did - possibly the best curry I've ever had, and the staff were excellent. Delicious and good value.

As a single woman on business I was directed to a table next to the lavatories and next to where the waiters stood facing the door to the kitchen. I had asked to sit somewhere else but was directed to this table - too tired after a long day I sat down. I ordered a chicken Dhansak which I usually... More

We came here for lunch and were very disappointed with the meal. The tandoor was not working, as a result of which half the items on the menu were off limits. So no tandoori chicken, no kebabs or even naans! Anyway, we were the only ones in the restaurant during lunch time. We were a bit surprised as the ambience... More
