Ordered a takeaway from here this evening based on a recommendation from a friend, the food was great and good value for money too.

I don't get the chance too often to have Indian food as my husband isn't fond of spices, although I do go on the odd occasion with some girlfriends of mine. We have tried quite a few in Newcastle town-centre as well as on the outskirts of the city and some were good some not so good. We returned last... More

Straightforward curry. Nice flavours, simple presentation, not too expensive. We were only there because of a booking mix-up elsewhere, but we all enjoyed what we selected.

We have used this restaurant/takeaway for a number of years and were happy with excellent quality of food and service. Until about a year ago when obviously to us something had changed in management and staff for whatever reason.Since then quality of food has dropped and atmosphere of whole dining experience has changed for the worse. Such a shame because... More

We came here after a recommendation from someone who lives in Bradford, who said that he thought Indian food in Newcastle was generally bland, but he recommended Cafe Spice as his favourite restaurant. The food was fantastic, the bhuna prawn on puri the best I’ve had anywhere, not overflowing with ghee as it can be. We had sag aloo, tarka... More

I have ordered food from cafe spice many times before and is normally very delightful. But on this occasion when I rang up to order the food the man was talking and suddenly answered another phone and left me waiting for 3 minutes. After placing my order I was given a price different to what I had worked out off... More

Hi there. Am sorry to hear that you got bad service the last time you ordered food from cafe spice. All our waiters are suppose to take one order at a time, if you had been left waiting on line for 3 minute that should not have happened, also you mentioned the food was a bit cold, all our food...

Ordered a take-out here while I was staying with a friend nearby. Very enjoyable and well cooked food and happy to go again if I am back in the area.

Went on a weekday with the family and surprisingly it was busy early on! Because they have a happy hour for £8.95! Between 5-7pm!! We were seated very efficiently in a nice little al cove, our drinks were served promptly but the food was a bit delayed, but was absolutely delicious, the lamb South Indian garlic is the best curry...

Hi s14tul Thank you for the lovely comments, we look forward to seeing you more often. We are always very busy with the takeaway orders, therefore it can slow us down sometime. But we are always trying to find ways of improving our service and getting food out on time is one of them.. Thanks More

As a customer of around 5 years I have noticed that the quality of the food is consistent and the service is generally really good. However, there is a fairly new male member of staff who wears glasses and is in his 50s who is full of self importance and at times very rude!! It's a shame really as its... More
