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

I love Indian food, and this didn't disappoint, with an added fresh approach. The ambiance is a bit dreary, but what they lack in appearance they make up for with good staff.

Great food, surprising, the setting is not the most romantic or convenient, but the food is really incredible. One of the best places to eat in Abuja, for me is number one. I just wish they would make more effort on the setting itself. One of Abuja musts, definitely if you are a vegetarian. Thanks!

I've visited this restaurant in the evening with business colleagues previously and we returned on my most recent visit to Abuja; it's the only place we went out to eat apart from the Hotel. The food is tasty with good portions with a good choice. Be prepared for the spicy papadums. The service was simple and friendly despite two power... More

Like the name says, the food is spicy and good. Went for the lunch buffet and was pleased. Several choices for veggie lovers. The freshly made hot sauce is outstanding. A cold beer is nice thing to have on hand. Price for the buffet is reasonable.

If you like Indian food this is a must in Abuja. I have really nothing to complain about.. good food, fair prices (even for Abuja), fresh, clean, lunch buffet (2500 NGN).. The only reason I do not give it 5 is because the place is not the most cozy place, it is kind o a big open canteen area. However... More
