I used to go here very often - but on my last visit the food was disappointing and the staff weren't the usual group I had seen often - and were a little overzealous in asking is everything ok......my friend said her food was a little oily which it never had been before.

Ordered a meal to be delivered. Dhansak floating in oil, stuffed paratha not stuffed and cold. So much for being a regular customer. Never again!

Went here for a meal with friends and truly enjoyed every aspect of our evening. We were greater with a warm welcome and the staff were very friendly. Good was excellent and reasonably priced. I would recommend this restaurant but would advise booking a table as it is not a huge place which does add to the atmosphere. A nice... More

Had a lovely Sunday night dinner here recently. Thank goodness we made a booking - it was extremely popular! Reasonable prices and very tasty curry. We didn't have starters but the mains were delicious. We had lamb dansak and chicken tikka masala. The service was good too, attentive but not annoying. We will definitely visit again soon.

There is no difference in quality of food for either a take away or sit down meals. The meals are all individually cooked to order and the food is worth the wait. The staff are attentive, polite and friendly. This is a great place to meet friends, or for an intimate meal

It's 21.40. We have just returned home. We booked a table for 7pm for 8 people for a Mother's Day dinner.. We couldn't fault the service and the food was fantastic. Brilliant evening. Thank you School of Spice.

I have been ordering take aways from the school of spice for a couple of years now. The food is always good and it is usually delivered within half an hour, and if not, they normally say it will be a long time so I usually then go and collect it as I only live 10 mins away and collection... More

We have been to Indian Restaurants all over London and without doubt this is the best food we have eaten. The care taken to deliver great flavours across a wide menu and friendly and attentive service is the reason our friends and family eat in here time after time! Great job guys and see you soon!

We were recommended this restaurant by the manager of a local hotel in which we were staying who said that this was the best Indian in Shepperton (and therefore walking distance). Obviously we took his advice and visited The School of Spice on 14th Feb. Looking through most of the previous reviews I honestly believe we were a victim of... More
