Great curry in Old town

The restaurant is usually busy so be sure to book. It's a clean, and relatively quiet for a restaurant. The décor is fine and the service is friendly but the standout is the food - it's a great place to for a curry in Eastbourne. You'll have all of the usual Indian staples plus some house specials.

Went for dinner in a small group and were seated at a long table which meant some of us were trapped for the duration of the meal (very annoying !). The service was awful, slow and they didn't seem to be able to cope even though there weren't many people eating at the time. Our meal took ages to come... More

Have not found a better Indian Restaurant in Eastbourne ! Service can be a bit strange but the food is excellent. The weekend set menus are very good value but not as good as the a la carte. Tasteful decor and good music which is not too loud.

This curry house serves one of the best tasting madras' with decent chicken chunks. Staff are ok, got a strange sense that they weren't up to the job. Also had a take away and they forgot the popadoms we ordered, offered to bring some later but our meal would be cold. They ended up telling us we could have free... More

Ordered a chicken korma but without the meat I always order this and have no problem in other restaurants we got as a takeaway so when I got home and took lid off to find this I was horrified it tastes like soggy flour with some coconut in...... I called to question and he said you asked for a korma... More

We ventured to Spice Garden both on the recommendation of work colleagues and in search of a change. Neither of us is a connoisseur of Indian cuisine but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My main of king prawn bhuna was very good. The tomato based sauce was delicately spiced yet flavoursome although the number of prawns was adequate rather than... More

Nice and clean restaurant. 10 of us for family meal. Drinks orders taken quickly then had to wait for some time for starters and main coarse orders to be taken. Then had to wait for about 40 mins to an hour for starters and main coarse' to arrive. Food arrived and was good in general. Staff seemed a bit lack... More
