It was rather good

Pre match solo curry. First impressions are that the place is tired, and although many menus have moved on this is very traditional with fare that you could guess without looking at the menu.

Pre match solo curry. First impressions are that the place is tired, and although many menus have moved on this is very traditional with fare that you could guess without looking at the menu. However, it was very good. Excellent Dhansak, nice and thick with a real complex flavour. No pretence, good standard curry. Will go back.

Although i generally go for more modern Indian food, i keep going back to Spice Lounge because they do what they do, well. They could do with a bit of modernising the decor to make it feel a bit more intimate. It's often quite quiet when we go, as they seem to do most of their trade via takeaway, and... More

We ate here New Years eve, we ordered the mixed starter and bhaji as a starter, this was very tasty, the bhaji were crispy, one of the best I and my partner have had. I had the chicken tikka Ceylon and asked for it to be spiced up, which they did, very good flavour and got the spice just about... More

After looking at several curry houses in Watford opted for spice lounge as it was convenient to our hotel, on reflection a good walk may have been the best option. Living in the curry heaven of birmingham I feel like the people of watford our been short changed on the whole curry experience. The quality of food served was a... More

I've been going to the Spice Lounge for a couple of years now, and its my favourite out of the (fairly numerous) Indian restaurants in Watford. I've used Groupon vouchers on occasions, but I'm also happy to pay full price, as the prices are reasonable. And I've not found there to be any difference in the quality of quantity of... More

booked through a Groupon deal, and you're never sure whether it will be good or not, and we weren't disappointed! Food was very good, spicy enough and plenty of it. Attentive service without being overbearing, although the staff did outnumber the diners. Only gripes, poppadums were a little stale and toilets need a bit of a refurb. Would use again,... More

We have been here several times and are left satisfied every time. The food is delicious. The customer service is good . They could only do with sorting out the door that keeps swinging open letting the cold in. But they were equipped with lots of heaters to combat that. Overall very pleased and will return with friends and family

Took advantage of the £12.50 offer. Don't believe precious review saying that not many things are included as the fact is that EVERYTHING except prawn dishes are included - this is clearly stated, I had the Chicken Korma and the Lamb Dansak. Both were delicious.

Ate here on a Groupon deal which appeared to be excellent value for money at 12.50 for 2 people. However, ended up doubling this with a non-alcoholic drink each, poppadum's and service. Service was very good, attentive but not in your face, as was the garlic naan bread- lovely and fresh. The currys were OK, we had a balti and... More
