Bit like the curate's egg

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

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 :)

We ordered two medium spiced currys both of which were insipid, bland and under seasoned. The pilau rice wasn't pilau rice :( not a sign of any seasoning in sight just that awful multi coloured dyed rice which is awful! Don't believe all the hype there are far better places to eat from in the same area!

Went on recommendation, with friends. Lovely food....very big menu. It was all excellent! Cost £130 for four starters, four mains, lovely bottle of wine and soft drinks. Will definitely go back and will also try takeaway. The staff were smashing too!

Ordered a Takeaway last night In Abingdon while I was visiting my friend, and unfortunately this Indian let me down a lot. The food was very salty and the Chi Balti was very oily, like they thew in a cup of Oil in. I was left very disappointed by the food and especially after a long day and being hungry... More
