Very authentic tasting food and the manager and staff are brilliant!! Have always chosen Mumbai Square as the food is brilliant also, but for a dine in meal, cannot beat the School of Spice.

The restaurant has been there for years, really good building. We went a long time when few Indian restaurants located this town, though the food was not good. We decided to give a try again we choose very carefully thinking grills would be a saft bet and they were. We most certainly return again

I had dinner here with a group of 9 friends on 18th December and was very pleased with the whole experience. The staff are friendly, attentive and polite. The food was very good and way better than average. Every dish looked, smelt and tasted delishous. Plenty of room for larger groups in the upstairs area. If I have one small... More

We had a table booked for 17/18 at 8 on a December Saturday night. We were warmly greeted, shown to our upstairs table and served drinks to keep us occupied. The staff looked after us with great humour and efficiency including accommodating the one of us who doesn't eat Indian, although he was tempted to sample the goods. The general... More

Really nice food, consistently good. The restaurant is in a lovely historic building with vaulted ceiling to the first floor featuring exposed beams. The restaurant opens late at the weekend, I've seen people arriving at 11pm. The restaurant can sometimes get very busy at the weekends, last time there was barely a seat free and the restaurant is very big.... More

I hadn't been here for a year or two and as I had not found any really good curry house nearer to me I chose to return here with a friend. The service was friendly and efficient, and staff had a sense of humour. Timing was good. The menu had a lot of choice. One item was wrong but quickly... More

We've now tried all 4 Indian restaurants in Shepperton town but we were disappointed with this one. The interior was lovely though we were offered the 'cosy table' as mentioned by another reviewer before being given a table with more room. The service was fantastic, the staff really friendly but the food was a let down. I had lamb and... More
