After reading some of the reviews, I wasn't too sure about visiting this place but it was close by and had tables available so decided to give it ago. It is quite a small restaurant but the staff were polite, service was quick without feeling hurried. The food was pretty good for the price and decent sized portions. Would visit... More

Walked into an almost empty restaurant at about 8pm on a Friday, asked for a table for 6 was then asked had we booked !! The service was extremely poor with wrong drinks orders, we asked for a vodka and lemonade, we got a glass of lemonade, then a glass of vodka so we mixed it ourselves and a coffee... More

Took takeaways on two occasions when staying there locally- I've got to say the food was fantastic. The service was excellent too. Personally we had a good experience overall. Thank you.

We ate here while staying at the Holiday Inn Express. There are 4 eateries within walking distance of the hotel. After reading the reviews and menus of all of them we decided we quite fancied an Indian- Initially put off by some of the negative reviews on here and the fact the restaurant was empty (it was only 6.30pm) the...

Went to Marina Spice with friends and was really disappointed, the restaurant is in a great setting but that's the best thing about it. As we walked in,the member of staff who showed us to our table seemed miserable and that was the theme for the rest of the night. Had to ask for our first drink after being seated... More

Had a family meal for the first time and the food was reasonably nice. Environment is pleasant enough and the atmosphere was good. We just thought the waiters were a little grumpy. We shelled out £120 and the waiter didn't say anything when processing our payment, no chat, please or thank you. Even a tenner tip in cash didn't raise... More

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,...
