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.

Buffets; generally speaking you pay a little and get a lot of second rate food. So it came as a shock to me that this place had a wide variety of food that was all pretty good. We turned up at about 8pm, which is usually when you get stuck with the leftovers at buffet restaurants. Not so here. The... More

The lady receptionist/ greeter is super friendly. The choice of food is amazing. There are at least ten starters. Dosa. Puri. Vegetarian dishes. Noodle bar stir fry. Pizza and chips area. Grill. Chocolate fountain with marshmallows and Ice cream machine. You can get a refillable soda which is good value. Overall a great value buffet meal. If anything the actual... More

We went to the Slice of India to meet up with some friends. On a Saturday, if your there before 6:00 pm then it is very quite but after that it gets very busy despite the large area. It is an all you can eat buffet with some non Indian options. Please note there is a 2 hour seating policy... More

The Slice of India is our top choice when deciding to have a family meal out. The staff are friendly and the food is fantastic! Although it is a big and popular place you never have to wait long at the various food stations. Trouble is you want to try it all!

Can honestly say I have never been to an all you can eat indian buffet with so much choice. The starters are lovely, the curries were nice and puddings were yummy! Can't remember exactly what they were, but we tried some pancake type thing made by a chef, and they were nice, but different. So much choice and all food... More

Couldn't find this restaurant at first so called for help! The lovely lady at reception stayed on the phone and directed me there! Most helpful. Plenty of seating and great ambiance. Big selection of nice starters and mains. Desserts were great although didn't have much room left! Unlimited refillable drinks. Staff are very attentive, polite and friendly. Definitely going back...
