Nice little restaurant

Good for a buffet lunch. Avoid the toilet lest you want to lose your appetite. Really hot during Harmatan since resembles a factory shed more than a restaurant, so try getting a seat near the ACs.

This place is worn out. The food was ok. We visited for buffet lunch. The meal was ok but not even warm. The soul was less than warm and had to ask the waiter to make it hot. The tea was also not as per Indian standard. However, the taste of food was decent. May be some attention by management... More

I ate here with a group of colleagues while we were staying at the Bolton White, across the street. We sat in an open-air area and had no complaints about the ambiance This is not fine dining, it's just reasonably priced, well-cooked food in a convenient setting. The staff was friendly if a bit slower that American standards. I've learned... More

I went to Spice Foods for their Sunday buffet. As other reviewers have mentioned, the decor is not very eye-pleasing. The food was ok. The buffet had a decent selection of vegetarian and meat options. The dessert selection wasn't very good - over-ripe pineapple and rather dry gulab jamun. The service was excellent and very attentive - probably because there... More

Went twice here - once a la carte and next time tried the lunch buffet. Food quality is reasonable. Service good. Price also reasonable. The place can be a bit more cheerful in terms of decor. Otherwise I have no complaints.

Of course, it all depends on what you compare it to. Compared to other restaurants in Abuja, this is good food, decent service, and a sufficiently clean environment. I've eaten at Spice twice and attended a party they catered. The food is undoubtably good. My favorites include the samosas, vegetable fritters, garlic naan, chicken tandoori. I've gotten cold Heineken each... More

We have been there several times for lunch and dinner buffet. It is always worth a visit with a friendly owner and stable food quality. The only pity is that they do not spend any efforts in giving this place a nice decoration. It reminds me of a waiting room in a railway station although it would be so easy... More

The India food here is only average and the décor has seen better days, but the buffet is pretty good value and I like a curry once in a while.

As of this writing, Spice is rated as the second best restaurant in Abuja. After seeing this, I picked myself off the floor and resolved to write a fair and honest review to set the record straight. I simply cannot conceive of how this ranking came to be, nor how reviewers can say the food here is good, let alone... More
