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

This is an OK restaurant with tasty food although the meat content isn’t great, perhaps this is why the prices are quite reasonable. They could do with understanding what a pint actually is as each one we ordered didn’t quite measure up. The menu is considerable but there is nothing outstanding to say. Staff were pleasant and but not especially... More

I go here quite often for sit-down meals but mainly order as a takeaway. I also visit the Bengal Curry Centre just down from here for takeaway. I alternate the two because, quite frankly, you cannot get any better for Indian food. Cafe Spice operate without an alcohol licence so you can take your own bottle(s), and enjoy your night... More

At £8.95 a head you maybe shouldn't expect too much. Service was a bit slow. Big dishes of curry sauce but not a lot of meat. Tasty enough, nice naan breads.

Got a takeaway from here and it turned up over an hour late, cold, and missing parts of the order. The food was alright but nothing particularly special. Not really acceptable. Won't be going back. When I tried to get a refund for the bits they didn't deliver all I got were excuses, finally I got the money back through... More

Our party of four ate here on,Saturday evening and we all had the special menu, £8.95 for three courses before 7pm. The welcome from the staff and attention to detail was excellent and the food was superb. We have eaten here several times and have always been highly delighted and confident in recommending it to others.
