Description: Delicious food... That's what we're all about here at Slice of India...
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!

Lovely dosa

Nice food in a nice atmosphere the only thing that lets the place down is the old pile your plate high and leave half! You would think they couldn't go up more than once.. Oh wait you can!! Apart from this it's lovely food cooked well and hot which is rare at buffet style restaurants

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

Thought it was above average overall. Positives - really friend maitre'd, waiters attentive, very good dessert selection & clean restrooms. Free refills on soft drinks 👍. Unfortunately, main dishes (especially curries) lacked flavour. Lamb chops and grilled chicken particularly bland. Price reasonable.

We visited early on in the evening and therefore the restaurant wasn't too busy. In terms of the food, it is probably the one of the best places to get authentic indian food. The dessert section however was poor with only two indian desserts. The drinjs service was very slow so I point down for that. I am afraid to... More

I really enjoyed this restaurant. I tried many new foods, some nice, some disgusting. The staff are great here, no doubt about it. Our plates were cleared promptly. We were even given a tour round because we had never been there before. There is a big selection of food! My favourite was the noodle station. Get a plate, add some... More

Fantastic evening with friends, excellent choice of different Indian dishes, all you can eat for only £14! If it is your first visit ask friendly staff to give you small tour.
