The delay between ordering food and it arriving has always been a bit on the slow side, however on this visit it was getting on the long side (about an hour). However one can never fault the quality of the food. One problem is the number of takeaways that were seen to be collected. I have a feeling... read more

Had a takeaway from here recently with a group of friends . The food wasn't as good as I expected with tough lamb and the inclusion of peppers in the mushroom rice . Disappointing

I regret that I am unable to support some of the negative views shown here today. I have attended this restaurant on many occasions with my son and son in law. The service is always good and courteous, the cuisine is also first rate. The staff are friendly and helpful and the menu prices are reasonable. What more could one... More

I'm not going to comment in terms of the food on offer, it seems previous contributors have that covered! However, one aspect of the restaurant that should be elaborated upon is the absolute disgusting way in which they deal with customers/prospective customers. Somebody who claimed to be the owner dished out verbal abuse that was totally unnecessary and actually reportable... More

Ordered a take away as a treat and could not have been more disappointed. Chicken madras had absolutely no spice or heat to it. It was watery and very bland. Keema nan was ok but a bit heavy and greasy, poppadums were good, I shall not be using again.

Staff are very attentive and very friendly, food is beautiful and quick service. Great value for money. Nothing is ever to much trouble. Spice Valley is the best indian restaurant in Abingdon by far. Such a relaxing atmosphere and the decor is lovely. We have been coming here for months and every time it has been excellent :)
