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. Please take a look around our website where you can meet some of the team, see a selection of the many dishes on offer and get a feel for the Slice of India experience. We hope to see you soon!

We visit the "Slice" on a regular basis. There is a good range of food including Indian, Chinese stir fry and pizza, chips, salads. Most of the food is prepared in full view and is therefore fresh and tasty. It's all you can eat so you help yourself which means having to return to the serving area between courses and... More

Good choice of food. Regularly topped up with fresh food. Wide choice of dishes. Regularly clearing tables. Staff could have been politer. Toilets dirty and untidy. Pricey drinks go prepared.

The staff are friendly and there is a nice atmosphere in the restaurant. The decor is lovely and the restaurant is huge, catering for many different Birthday... More

I love Indian food and eat in Indian restaurants regularly but have never been overly keen on buffet restaurants, preferring smaller restaurants offering a la carte menu choice. However, a work colleague suggested A Slice of India so a group of us decided to give it a try on what we thought would be a fairly quiet Tuesday evening. On... More

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

I'm sorry to report. Slice of India food quality is going down, the curry's meat is chewy and taste is not brilliant , feel like you only get what you pay for .
