We have used this restaurant since it opened. We eat in and use it for " carry out" catering. The food is excellent, portion sizes generous and staff unfailingly polite. On one occasion they delivered a full meal to my house course by course to a group of 15. We do live fairly close by. They even make special efforts... More

We live across the canal from the Marina Spice Lounge and always try to support local businesses - as well massive Indian food fans - when it first opened I think it felt it had a lot to prove and some meals were hit and miss: when you ate in there were times when the food arrived late, items missing,...

Visited this Marina Lounge When It first opened , food was pretty good, staff were a little flustered but understandable as it was first night opening . The only slightly negative I could say was the restaurant was a little cramped - everyone flocked there on the first night - not a lot of space between tables . I pass... More

You can see clearly that the last two reviews given were completely fabricated, both apparent customers both spell the word 'restaurant' incorrectly, but coincidentally the same way. Went here recently after a couple of drinks in the paper mill pub and had wished we had stayed there. This restaurant has new management that couldn't manage there way out of a... More

Had visited the Marina Spice Lounge just after it opened and it was okay. I took my family there for a birthday celebration because it was close to home and would be a nice stroll out. The poppadums were as we expected, but the chutneys were poor, tasteless and seemed watered down. On to the starter, which was a deep... More

Me and my family ate here last night, and are now all extremely sick (except my brother who didn't eat anything). We have all been up since 4 am with sickness and a high temperature, NHS helpline said it sounds like 'staph bacteria' from UNWASHED HANDS will definitely not be returning. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

This was our first, and by no means the last visit to the Marina Spice lounge. Excellent service and even better food. Probably some of the best tasting Asian food I have tasted. It is well worth a visit or two.

Ate here on a whim, walking past as staying at nearby hotel. The welcome was warm and seating was available straight away, despite how busy the restaurant was at the time. Service was friendly and efficient, and the food was divine, We both had the smaller size of pizza and loved it, there was quite a bit, so it was... More
