Had a great meal once again at the Spice Lounge. Izzy and his team always make us welcome even when the restaurant is busy. Great personal service as always. This is our first choice venue for dining in and around Bishop Auckland.

Have had many meals here with family and friends can honestly say it is the best curry restaurant around. Issy and the staff are so friendly, even if we haven't been in for a few weeks they all say hello to us and welcome us back like old friends. How Issy remembers the names of his regulars I don't know... More

I telephoned to make a booking, and was given 8.15pm. We ordered quite quickly the set meal for 2, and 2 dirnks. We left the restaurant after paying for our drinks at 10pm. We were still waiting for our meal. The attitude of the staff was that they didnt care, and when we spoke with one at the reception area,... More

I have been to Spice Lounge on a number of occasions - with a young child as a family, with friends, with husband on our own, and at charity nights. The staff are extremely friendly, and always have time to stop and talk. This doesn't impact on the service though - food is excellent, service is fast, and atmosphere is... More

Went for my friends 50th 7 of us. Really enjoyed our meal. Service was ok. Had a canny night. I would defiantly recommend it to friends and family. We only had pickle tray for starters. That was enough as the main meal was very filling. We had 5 bottles of wine. The bill only came to £20 each...see you again... More

My boyfriend and I regularly dine in the restaurant and use the takeaway service. Both are second to none. Fantastic food, lovely staff and brilliant service. I've arranged many meals for both family and friends too and everyone always compliments on how delicious it is. Well done to you all!! Can't wait for my next visit!

Fantastic food, service, whisky and staff. I've been here on several occasions. Whisky Club, birthdays etc and in February there is going to be an Indian themed Burns night, it may be the first of many, it sounds like fun. There is a vast array of whisky that would put loads of bars to shame from all around the world.... More

We have been visiting the Spice Lounge for several years now and they never fail to impress. The food is always delicious, the staff are very helpful and Issy does an amazing job supporting local charities ( we have raised over £3000 in the last year for Auckland Hospital Radio with Issy's support). They are more than happy to make... More
