I visited this restaurant in August for a leaving party. There were 15 people. We were seated promptly and our poppadoms came quickly but that's when it all went downhill. 2 hours later the meal arrived. Although hot plates were dished out the meal went quickly cold. The restaurant itself was icy cold with air conditioning from the ceiling blowing... More

Popped into our local Indian as we have never been disappointed with the quality and service. The atmosphere was buzzing and fortunately they squeezed us in as they were really busy. The food was first class, fresh and really tasty. Spice lounge is certainly our favourite Indian restaurant in the area, great value, very pleasant staff. Would recommend to anyone... More

Four of us had an excellent meal last night at the Spice Lounge. The food was obviously freshly cooked using good quality ingredients. We all ordered something different however everyone agreed that the food was of a very high standard. The service was excellent too. The final icing on the cake was a whisky menu with 100 different whiskys on... More

Until I tried this restaurant I didn't really like Indian food, I have now a few dishes I enjoy thanks to Issy and his team doing tapas style trials for people to try, a fabulous idea and I've really enjoyed all the meals I've had! I have eaten both take away and in the restaurant - the food is always... More

Just had a fabulous curry with relatives and friends in a lovely friendly restaurant in Bishop Auckland. I would recommend the Spice Lounge to everyone. The food is perfect and they also have a fabulous selection of whiskey. If you're in the area you must try it!! I wouldn't go anywhere else for good Indian food!!!

I ate here with my family having been a couple of times in the past with friends. We hadn't been for over a year so we were hoping the place was still OK. I was pleasantly surprised that the place hadn't gone downhill, in fact it seemed cleaner, brighter and more spacious than I remember. On arrival we found that... More

We had a lovely meal here, the food was amazing and the staff were very friendly. Everything arrived in good time and we all really enjoyed what we had to eat. The staff also dealt diplomatically and courteously with a difficult (seemingly drunk) customer sitting behind us, making sure not to let this ruin our experience. We are new to... More

Tonight I visited spice lounge with my boyfriend, it was the best Indian I have ever tasted. Very spacey place clean and tidy, brilliant friendly staff, food lovely cooked and fresh, not to long to wait for food but not hurried either. I will be definitely coming back here soon

Can't understand why there are negative reviews. This is a great restaurant with great service, we've eaten here loads of times. Each time it's been fantastic and I'm really fussy. Ignore the bad comments Nd enjoy great Indian food.
