Delicious food... That's what we're all about here at Slice of India. We've brought together a fantastic team of chefs who know how Indian food should be cooked. Every dish that is put before you has been carefully selected, tasted and adapted using the finest ingredients. Unlike many buffet restaurants up and down the country we believe quantity should not replace quality and we strive to ensure that every dish we serve can stand alone as a culinary delight in its own right. The beauty of our buffet set up is that while we offer a fine selection of your tried and tested favourites we also offer traditional Indian dishes you haven't tried before. If you don't like it (you will) then try something else. Why play it safe with a Chicken Tikka Masala when your new favourite dish is just waiting to be discovered? We look to couple great food with great service. All our staff our eager to help so if you need anything or would like to know more information about the food or drink on offer just ask and they'll be only too pleased to help.

Good food again

Revisited here recently and as buffet restaurants go, this is best of the ones I've been to around Derby/Notts - Large variety of food from Indian (Lage range), Chinese, meat grill and pizza/fries/nuggets for kids (and adults!) - at app £15 a head plus 10% NHS discount it's well worthwhile a visit... read more

Great night out with a great choice at the buffet. All you can eat for 15 pounds each so great value. The atmosphere was buzzing and the place is HUGE!!! Tried not too make a pig of myself but very difficult. I would stay off the authentic Indian sweets though, extremely sugar laden, just have another plate of starters.

I went to A Slice of India with my wife and daughter this evening for our monthly treat and suprisingly came away really disappointed. Two guys who I work with had recently recommended it and we were looking forward to trying it. On arrival we were impressed, the layout is nice and the lady maitre'd was lovely, but this was...

We've visited here a number of times over this past year and just keep coming back for more. Fresh hot tasty food, from the starters and main courses and also from the grill. (the lamb chops take a few minutes to grill, but definitely not to be missed) The street food section should be given a try. On the face... More

Excellent choice, as a vegetarian I was particularly pleased with the selection available in all of the various 'world food' areas.

Came here with the hubby and 2 kids and had. Lovely meal.the chilli chicken was to die for so lovely with plenty of selection of other curries and Indian dishes. For the kids there was typical English food which meant we were able to sample the delicious dishes. The kids also enjoyed their milkshakes. Lovely meal.

I have been visiting this restaraunt for a few years now and the problem is this! When you get such good food and service consistently is difficult to decide to try somewhere else. My wife asks where shall we go to dinner and she knows what I will say. Staff and parking are great. My favourite is the stir fry... More

Were regulars at the slice of India and visit the place once or twice a month. The majority of the staff are always excellent. The Maitre'D Rose is an amazing person, she always ensures you feel welcomed. Starters are always excellent, my only two negative feedback points would be be that the curries could do with improving somewhat as the... More

I don't normally like buffets, BUT this was a pleasant surprise. As soon as you walk in , decorated in true Indian splendor was a classic movie jalopy, of course I had to take a picture. Also on Sundays and Wednesdays there is a henna tattoo artist. Her tattoos are amazing. Now to the food, it was a buffet there... More

Lots of curries and options, great service and a good price! It would be improved if they had a spiceometer next to each curry so we didn't burn ourselves! But it was a great evening and we strongly recommend. For two buffets and two drinks (refillable) it came to 28.80 with three pounds student discount
