Great birthday meal

Fabulous meal. Chicken mango ginger curry was awesome. Owner was so kind and brought me a mint/lemon drink as a special for a birthday. Then he brought my sister and cousin drinks as well. Very special !!!

Greeted by owner. The are pleasant professional and genuinely happy you came in. They take great pride in their food and their service. The coconut mussels were tasty. Excellent presentation. We had the chicken combo lunch platter with samplings and several items all of which were amazing. The service is attentive yet passive - they softly deliver plates and napkins... More

The food and service in Island Spice were acceptable. The setting, unfortunately, is fast food cafe with distracting big screen TV's dominating the small space. Prices are high and portions small. The sag paneer was simply chopped spinach with hot sauce, not the rich creamy sag paneer that I know and had hoped for. Sadly, I cannot recommend this restaurant.

Island Spice may be small, the menu similarly not vast, but the food and service is very good. Having visited a number of times now - eat-in and take-out - service has always been good - attentive, caring and very helpful. On this visit one of our party was glutten free, which was not only easily and discretely arranged, but... More

I have been to many Indian restaurants over the years. The food here at island spice is the best I have ever had. The atmosphere is very appropriate for the laid back island surroundings. The prices were very reasonable. We ordered our dishes medium spiced and they definitely had an authentic kick. We will definitely return and highly recommend Island... More

We love Indian cuisine and found Island Spice to be very lacking in flavor, presentation and service. Thin sauces instead of rich and creamy with lesser quality ingredients. Presentation was more "American" style rather than traditional Indian. We won't be back.

Who would ever expect to find good INDIAN food on Bradenton Beach? But, here it is! The food is first rate and impecably fresh. The lamb is top notch and the sauces are beautifully spiced. The breads are wonderful too.

Our family of four had lunch here. Everything was excellent. Highly recommend the lamb combo and the vegetarian combo. Nice way to try several dishes. Great samosas, naan and mango lassis too. Attentive service. Everything is flavorful but mildly spiced, perfect for a first timer trying Indian food. Ask for it spicier if necessary!
