Only restaurant!

Cafe Spice is the only restaurant in our town and thankfully is a good one. An advantage for us is that it is walkable. The staff are very friendly and the food is tasty. The only criticism i would have is, that they are sometimes heavy-handed with onion. Otherwise it is a very good dining... read more

Very friendly, treat us as family and remember our names. One of those places that are fun to go to just for the company. The excellent food is an added bonus....

Have eaten here before and had a nice meal but had a takeaway recently and the food was very bland and poor quality. Will not be going here again, maybe they would benefit from some competition in the area to up their game.

My family regularly goes here usually a big group of us for a celebration of some sort. We all love the atmosphere and food. There is a brilliant choice and all of our party is easily able to find something that they love. The staff here provide an excellent service and the price is very reasonable.

But this little place wasn't up to my taste, it's ok if you are running late and it's the last resort but I would rather travel further a field to have quality at the same price

We had a selection of meat based dishes here but I was concerned to see how many came out a bright red colour ! My shikh kebab (bright red) tasted a bit stale and I think on balance I would go veggie if we eat curry in Sturminster Newton again.

Found something nasty in my curry, really put me off. haven't been able to have a take away curry since, may have been bad luck but in this day and age hygene should be uppermost!
