Friendly service, great food and good value. Fantastic offer on a Tuesday night - worth checking it out if you are visiting for the week.

We had a takeaway. To start with we were given the wrong order and had to take it back again. Well accidents happen. But the quality of the food was no accident. We couldn't eat it. I love salt but even I couldn't manage the salt content in the food. It wasn't cheap and it shouldn't have had to end... More

We decided to eat in this restaurant on the second evening of our stay. Unfortunately there were only two other people eating at the time which was a bit off-putting, but we braved it out and were glad we did. I had one of the best vegetable baltis I think I've ever had, which is saying something for someone who... More

We went to this restaurant on the Sunday as there wasn't much else we hadn't tried open. The decor is not inviting and an outside toilet isn't what one expects. However the waitress did say they would be doing everything up soon. The order was taken promptly, drink and starters arrived quickly and the food itself was pretty good. There... More

Eat here twice during our weeks stay at Mevagissey, we were not disappointed, pleasant service and value for money, Jalfrezi and Bhuna excellent. Place is up for sale just hope they open another curry house elsewhere in Meva as the food was great

Ordered takeaway for 9 people and everybody enjoyed their food, best value is the tikka kebab, its not on the menu (its not the one on the starter menu) so you have to ask for it. Was more expensive than usual but where isn't in Cornwall? I think people would be disappointed eating in, (if anybody does) as the restaurant... More

We went to this Restaurant because my Wife fancied a Curry. The fact that the place was empty should have rung alarm bells! Service was OK and the Poppadoms were passable but the main course was certainly not up to our usual standards. It would have been hard to complain because most Indian food differs between venues but, for us... More

If you love authentic indian cuisine with great service and atmosphere, give Spice trader a very wide birth.

This is the worst takeaway in the area and the value is non existent. Avoid until they sort it out. Truly dreadful, empty, cold, dirty and overpriced. The locals swerve it, you should too.
