You asked for Spicy, You got it, and it was great.

Stopped in to this nice little authentic Indian gem for lunch last week. It was simply fantastic. I had the Rasam soup and the Chicken Tikka Masala Wrap. I asked to have it spicy and our host did not disappoint. If you like it hot, he will fix you up. It is all Authentic Indian. The has some... read more

I ordered butter chicken - mild. It was spicy enough to get my lips tingling but not break a sweat. Perfect. Also the sauce was delicious. Complex and savory. Yum! $14 But...the naan was a disgrace. It was rubbery and soggy (microwave?) also it was small...a single dessert plate sized piece for $2. Also the veggie samosa was delicious...crispy and... More

Just ok not great. Portion size for takeout definitely lacking. You can also tell an authentic Indian restaurant by the chicken, a decent restaurant will cook the meat in the sauce NOT pre-cook and add to the sauce once cooked. It's also a nah for naan bread, it tastes like the packaged naan from Publix. I won't be going back... More

We visited the island spice today, on our way back from a dive. Everything was wonderful . . . authentic, well spiced, fresh . . . . simply wonderful. I had rasam soup and shrimp vindaloo, and the owner made sure both were made extra hot. My husband had the masala dosa filled with spiced potatoes. It was a 14... More

I was visiting Anna Maria Island for vacation during the summer with some friends who had been here before, and they suggested that I pay The Island Spice a visit. The service there is great, so is the food. They have a wide variety of Vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian items, for kids and adults alike. They also make dishes up-to your... More

It is always hard to find good Indian cuisine, well look no further. We decided to check it out. We were a little nervous when we walked in and no one was there at 6:30pm but it sure filled up fast. I guess people don't eat Indian until later. I ordered the hot curry chicken with veggies... the best I... More

Best Indian food I've ever had. Lunch prices and portions are awesome. Lamb and vegitarian options are my favorite. Beware that spicey means spicey. I love it that way ;)

This small restaurant was the cleanest place we ate at on island. We had the chicken tikka lunch combo and clams in curry. Both were sufficiently spicy and fantastic!
