This is a takeaway review (no reason why takeout food should be different from eat in). We have eaten Spice Lounge takeout meals a few times lately but a couple of weeks ago tried a recommended alternative in Maidstone. It was a disaster: there were no redeeming features at all, in fact, it bordered on disgusting and was by far... More

Usually, I wouldn't go for a curry at 630pm but it was one of those days. Colleagues and friends had been recommending this for a long time. We arrived at 630pm and there were already a number of people sitting down to eat. By the time we left, (about 8PM) the restaurant was getting very busy. What I loved apart... More

Its not cheap but... More

Firstly, just in case people unfamiliar with the area use the TA location map to find this restaurant, it is not where the map indicates (north of the river and to the west of Maidstone) but in Coxheath, which is several miles away south of the river and Maidstone. Secondly, and at the risk of sounding pretentious, I should preface... More

We were treated to a buffet lunch here, which was so kind. Our host did ask in advance for them to provide some fish dishes, but sadly there weren't any, and the vegetable curry was pretty much a non event. My husband had chicken, which he said was tough. I ordered a fish starter, as there was nothing I could... More

Having been out of the area & not eaten in this restaurant for 2-3 years, we decided to return & eat there two nights in a row. And what a wonderful welcome we received from the Manager & the staff. It was like we had never been away. And the food was how we remembered. Excellent!

We have enjoyed plenty of meals here but was disappointed last Sunday. 4 adults & a baby to enjoy a Sunday buffet which obviously advertised to entice families. On arrival we asked for a high chair to be told they don't have any in the restaurant. My neice had to eat from her buggy which meant she was restless &... More

The food is exaclty what one would expect to find in a small curry house, nothing jumps out of the menu and it is all very standard fare. The service takes a while to warm up and there is always a feeling that there are better things the waiters would rather be doing, but all in all not the worst... More
