I ordered a takeaway from this restaurant, and was told it would be 15-20 mins.After 1 hour I went to the desk and complained that I had only oreded one dish and it had taken a long time. The girl at the desk called over a man, presumably the manager , who proceeded to shout at me, accusing me of... More

Visited this restaurant many times never been impressed as service is so slow. However had table for Christmas Eve, had no expectations as thought it would be double slow. How wrong I was, the restaurant only had a few tables booked so was 2 thirds empty. The service and the food we received was first class. If only it was... More

Food is good but be prepared to wait. Service is polite but achingly slow. Drinks order took at least 20mins for waiter to appear then a further 20mins to arrive. Food a further hour. I am a semi regular customer as food and atmosphere good......if only they'd hire a few more staff.

We came over from Portsmouth to eat here again as it was fantastic before, good food and service within the last couple of months. However, right from the start things were out of kilter; we asked to sit in the window where we were last time and were told not possible as it was a four seater and it would... More

Over one hour wait for food, small portions, stale poppadoms, other customers walking out, my previous review was positive as we really enjoyed the visit this time was a unacceptable affair...manager stop cutting costs staff and portions I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Table booked for 8:45pm. At 9:30pm, with no table in sight, we decided to go next door to the smaller Indian and were sat and served by 10pm. So poor.

Against my better judgment, I booked a table for 6 for a Saturday evening. From previous experience and reports I knew the service would be slow but new depths were met on this occasion. If you are prepared to wait an hour between courses being servedthen this is the place for you. If you want to see people from three... More

I've always defended the Spice Village because the food was so good. but I agreed with most of the locals that the service is shockingly bad. I've sat for over an hour waiting for a take away and walked out after an hour when there had been no sight of any food. Last night however, they took it to another... More
