First day back at work yesterday after the long summer holiday so we spoilt ourselves with a take away from here for tea. As always what we had was first class. I'm very fussy when it comes to the quality of meat but I have never been disappointed with the quality of chicken and lamb from here. The dishes are... More

I went to this restaurant with my fiancee and another couple. Personally after reading the reviews on this site can't believe I was eating in the same restaurant! The eating area was untidy and cold. The waiter couldn't understand English hardly at all. He had no knowledge of what was on the menu. The poppadoms brought out were slightly stale... More

Situated in an "off the beaten track" position (50 metres from the market square. This restaurant and takeaway is nevertheless well worth a visit. Try to ignore the fact that this is not the smartest eatery and focus on the excellent service and well cooked food at a reasonable price.

Having walked past The Spice of Swaffham several times and thinking it was just a take away, I spotted tables through the small window and decided to give it a try. I am pleased that we did. It is small and basic, furniture-wise, but attentive staff more than made up for this. With a steady turnover of people collecting their... More

Although this is a small restaurant and hardly ever full it serves the best Indian food in the area and we regularly travel here from kings lynn. The waiter is always friendly and service is good Highly recommend

Really nice atmosphere, calm and relaxing place, for sure. The experience that I had there will last for a really long time. I like it a lot and have been here four times already. I can not wait to go there again to try out the other courses. The prices are reasonable, I'd say very reasonable and you can have... More

Ate here on Sunday night after reading the reviews. We chose the '4 courses for £10' deal and were surprised that it included everything on the menu, although we had to pay £2 extra for king prawn. The restaurant was empty and quite cold so we had to eat with our coats on. The place was nicely decorated and clean... More

I come with my 2 friends at least once every 2 months. Love the food, although it can taste different depending on whether Adul (owner) does the cooking or not. What it lacks in ambinece is made up for with the friendly staff and quality cooking.
