Great food and catered for special diet.

Visited Spice twice on the 3rd and 4th of July for breakfast and dinner. My daughter is vegan which can be an issue at most restaurants. Not at Spice though! For breakfast she had vegan pancakes, which she enjoyed. The dinner menue has several options which are either vegetarian or vegan. Our... read more

I was very impressed with this restaurant, the service, impeccably clean restaurant. We ordered, vegetable samosas as a starter. They were the best samosas I have eaten. Main of beef curry and chickpea curry. Both were delicious. Accompanied with rice and garlic naan. I highly recommend this restaurant for Indian cuisine. Enjoy.

I had dinner at this neat little Indian restaurant during my business visit in July. While talking to the Irish owner was informed that he took over running of the place around a year ago. Obviously he is doing a good job as the food served was authentically Indian. Reasonably priced the menu is rather good with a range of... More

Beware, they lie about the pricing and try to suck up to you, and then charge you more when you get the bill. Meals were small and ungenerous for such a high price. Disappointed.

Zazillion. I have read your “review”. I also note that you have recently registered with Trip Advisor and we are your first (and only) restaurant review. Your “review” illustrates how much Trip Advisor is so heavily weighted against the business owner. Yours contains scant information about your meal but unsavoury comments against which we have little or no recourse. If... More

We were staying at BreadFruit Appartments just a 2 minute walk from this amazing Indian restaurant. Wow were we impressed. What caught our eyes were the signs out front advertising " Gluten Free, Vegetarian & Vegan". Getting GF in Port Vila is difficult as the staff at other restaurants ( appart from Cafe Du Village) don't understand the cross contamination... More

We love our Indian food and went to Spice last week. We got a great welcome and lovely waitress and that's where the great finished. After placing our order some 20 minutes after we arrived, we then waited and waited. We had some complimentary pappadums (very greasy) because it was taking so long and then a visit from the manager... More

Robynhum: Thank you for visiting Spice. I normally do not respond to reviews unless they are at variance with what happened or have been misleading (as yours is) for whatever reason. I remember your visit well for a number of reasons which will become apparent. On the night you dined with us we were busy with several parties arriving around... More

One word: DELICIOUS!!! No, that really doesn't cover it. Perhaps I could be grossly exaggerating by saying it was some the best Indian food I've eaten. We found it slightly amusing to be served by the lovely Irish family that run the place. Sunday nights a child dines for free with a paying adult (local tips always come in handy)... More
