We had a fabulous dinner at Island Spice tonight. The mango, ginger, curry chicken was outstanding. Ram was a very nice host. We highly recommend this restaurant.

We stumbled on this place while out riding our bikes, coming upon it just as we were getting hungry for lunch. We like Indian food and were surprised to find this little spot in between all the beachy places. The service was pleasant and attentive, and the food delicious -- everything is cooked to order, and to the level of... More

A simple, no frills space (10 tables). The biggest decorative items were the 2 flat screens showing basketball and bollywood movies. All the parking spaces were full so we waited a while for another car to leave. The restaurant was almost full but only 3 people were working (2 in back cooking and 1 out front doing everything else). Nevertheless... More

Out of all the restaurants on AMI, we enjoyed eating at Island Spice best! Everything was delicious, the Indian beer, cold, and the service attentive! We devoured the dosa. I loved the channa masala and the recommended lamb curry. We'll be back!

I have eaten Indian and Oriental food all over this world and last night's experience was one of the worst ever. As a party of 5 we arrived at the designated time. We were shown to a table without any covering. There was no decor nor even ethnic music. After about 15 minutes we were presented with a very limited... More

We were spending the week in town at a house 1minute away from here. On our first night we made a mistake by not checking up on the restaurant before trying it out...didn't do that here. We heard the great reviews about the Indian food here and we found it to be excellent We had the vegetable masa, butter chicken... More

Good food, great list of Indian beers. I had the chicken saag and some samosas. Service was a little slow - just one fellow waiting the tables. Good place to enjoy with friends. They do take-out as well.

Business has taken me to India many times, and my strangest food experience there came at an upscale restaurant in the capital where I preferred a few basic dishes. One day I happened to notice my waiter slip out and return with my favorite food, hot, aromatic, and flavorful -- but not from the restaurant's exclusive kitchen, instead from a... More

This was our second annual visit to Island Spice. I am pleased that they have maintained their good standard that we discovered last year. The meals are chosen by flavour style and then you request Mild, Medium, Hot or Very Hot spicing. We are accustomed to Indian food in the UK and chose Medium. It was spiced perfectly for us....

Small place very clean. Had dinner here a few days ago after reading TA reviews. Food was very good. The plain dosa had excellent coconut chutney and sambar as accompaniments. The chole bhature was so yummy my husband made a meal of it with 2 1/2 orders :) We also had the chicken and lamb curry and the butter chicken.... More
