On our last night in Port Vila we ordered takeaway from Spice. The new owner was very friendly and keen to please customers with great service. We ordered butter chicken, Dahl and beef madras with basmati rice. All the dishes were delicious. My son is a bit of a butter chicken connoisseur! He rated this one in his top 3!!!... More

Awful , just dreadful. "Food" is over priced. Sulky waitstaff. Curries all similarly over salted and otherwise bland. Cheap ingredients used . Basmati rice ? Never heard of it .... Hope the new owners can do better ...

They are from Ireland and have been in the restaurant for nearly a year. They were very friendly and welcoming, The restaurant appeared spotless and fresh. We had dinner that evening which was...

The new owners of the Spice in Vanuatu are doing an excellent job. We are lunching there once a week and intend to continue this behaviour. Good value, authentic food and very good staff make this "a find" in Port Vila. Come on everyone, lets' make sure the business continues to thrive so we can all eat well!

I am a regular customer at Spice, the food is authentic and the portions are large. Coupled with the friendly and efficient service it is easily the best restaurant in town for families or that special occasion. The restaurant is clean, tidy and well presented and the staff and management always go above and beyond to ensure every dining experience... More

We enjoyed our meals at Spice. It is hard to find a good restaurant in Vanuatu but this one was excellent. I especially love the vegatable korma with coconut rice. The place is very clean and tidy.

The food was amazing,the day I went some big Indian guy with the countrys deputy Prime minister were due to come so I am sure the place definitely has a good rep.I have travelled to Indian many times and the food was as good as it is in Delhi or for that matter how authentic Indian food should be.

Our party of 4 visited Spice on 6th January for dinner, and was very good. I see what others have said about the place, but generally we were happy with the food and service. I had the butter chicken and thought it was better than most places in Brisbane where we are from. A little expensive, but worth a visit... More

We live in Port Vila and try a new restaurant when we can. Spice is definately off our list. We were in a group of 8. Two of us ordered butter chicken. We were the only patrons and the food took one hour to arrive at our table. The butter chicken consisted of 4 pieces of chicken swimming in a... More
