My husband and I found this restaurant because we were riding our rented bicycles from AMI. The food was so delicious and service was prompt and courteous. We can't wait to go back again. Definitely, try this place--it is great Indian food.

We arrived here Thursday and have had take out from Island Spice twice. I don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu. We've had lamb, shrimp, chicken dishes...mild, medium, hot...all is amazing! We enjoyed a cold beer while waiting and loved the atmosphere. The staff seem to be genuine, kind folk. Love this place!

My friends and I were glad when this place opened some years ago, because there are not many Indian restaurants in this area The food is pretty good -- not outstanding. Daily specials run between $5 (appetizer) to about $15, for fish or meat dishes. I'm vegetarian, and there's a pretty good veggie option that includes panir (Indian cheese) although... More

We were looking for something different and found it with Island Spice. It's a tiny little place with only a few tables, but it wasn't busy on July 4th. We ordered standard veggie fare and a lamb dish, all of which were nicely spiced and very tasty. I especially liked the raita; excellent flavors. Next time, I'll try the dosas,... More

This restaurant is a nice change from the usual beach fare. The vegetable samosas were delicious, and the raita and chutney sauces were good. I ordered the butter chicken mild. Was just right on the spice. The meat was a little tough, but rice and sauce was spiced just right. My husband had the lamb and there was a piece... More

My kids love this place. They would eat every meal here if they could. Its a small place with an authentic menu and all the food made from scratch. The favorite is veggie stuffed dosa and dahl. Also the samosas and tamarind chutney are a big hit. For dessert the sweet rice and carrot halwa are excellent. Service is fast... More

We have a wonderful Indian restaurant we eat at back home. Our party of 6 was very excited to find Indian food on the island. The food was amazing bland even when ordered medium or spicy hot. The restaurant was very clean but we were not impressed by our food.

FANTASTIC food, reasonably priced, and offers gluten-free. Great for take out or dine-in. Friendly and fast service. Menu options include simply American fare so everyone in your party will be pleased. Did I say fantastic food? We're so happy they are here on the island and hope they are for many years to come!
