Great Indian food

This is the real deal. Delicious food, especially the chicken korma and their crepes. It was fresh, tasty and a great change of pace from the other restaurants on the island that all seem to serve the same food. We all loved our meal and would definitely return.

We really enjoyed our meal here. Service was impeccable, friendly and courteous. The food was as good as we have eaten in India.The menu is not extensive, but what they do they do exceeding well. I'm sure we will return. Good value and also a takeaway available.

My wife and I dined here after getting fed up of the usual American version of food served at most eateries in the area (OK I know this is America, but food gets murdered here). It's a humble place, but clean and rather endearing a bit like the owner who I thoroughly enjoyed meeting. The food was served reasonably quickly... More

We dined here for dinner a few nights ago and the food was absolutely delicious!!! We dined in the restaurant this time with friends (had take-out last year) and once again the food was just delicious. The spice was perfect--we requested the medium spice and it was so complex and flavorful, without being over the top-- pure deliciousness. Four of... More

We love Indian food and the food here is superb. Nice to have the choice of how spiced you want the dishes. Service and cleanliness is absolutely spot on.

We spend several months every winter in Anna Maria...and one thing we always do at least once (sometimes more often) is go to Indian Spice in Bradenton Beach for lunch/dinner. We love Indian food and we do have good Indian restaurants back home in Massachusetts...but they all pale in taste and quality to Indian Spice. This is authentic Indian food... More

Wow, wow, wow. I was in the area for a little relaxation and stopped in for an early super at Island Spice. I had the Tandoori Chicken and the Rasam. Each menu item was simply fantastic. I asked for the Rasam to be Spicy and the owner/chef did not disappoint. He came by after a few bites and asked how... More

Must say I was quite disappointed. Last time I was here was two years ago. We remembered the service to be quite slow but dinner excellent. This time service was as slow but now the portions were small, taste ok but not more. Sadly everything was topped with horrible prices. NOT worth the price. We had two Naan breads and... More

I have eaten here before, a couple of years ago and revisited while on vacation in the area. I have no idea if the ownership has recently changed or if the chef had the night off and they had asked the cleaner to do the cooking for the evening.The starters were ok but the main courses were, without out doubt,...
