Good Family Meal

Often frequent the Spice Valley for their buffet and standard meals. It is a nice restaurant and the food quality is high. Parking can be tight and sometimes difficult, however this is a small price to pay for the good food and nice atmosphere.

This is our special place for a treat. We love Indian food, and this is definitely the best place to be in Abingdon. Great ambiance and atmosphere, gorgeous food and very friendly staff.

A little lovely meal as it always has been. So good to see all the tables in use. We will be back, and we highly recommend this restaurant to anyone considering visiting Abingdon. The Scarrott's.

I have been to these premises on a number of occasions. Excellent meals presented by polite and willing staff. Another restaurant close to the A34 to the Midlands and the North. Varied menu with meals mostly of Asian origin, and at this time of year staff parties are often to be seen there. Prices moderate.

Perfect place to catch up with an old friend! Food was delicious and quickly served and the staff were very attentive and friendly. Only minor grumble is that it's a bit dark - if they turned the dimmer switch up a few clicks it would be absolutely perfect. £40 for dinner for two here is a bargain!

We had a lovely meal, from lovely staff, as always. Upon finishing the meal, I still had a lot left over, so asked to take it away. They happily obliged, but then there was a mix up and it turned out it had accidentally been thrown away. They were very apologetic, and cooked a whole new meal to take away!... More

We often have a takeaway from this restaurant and have also been to their buffet nights and used the restaurant at other times. The food and service is always good. The staff are efficient and cheerful. The surroundings are always clean and comfortable. One of the best restaurants in Abingdon and certainly the best Indian.
