“Horrid - Spicy water with a bit of chicken thrown in”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

First time customer of Spice Club. We ordered a take away but they managed to get the order wrong. When we got home and found out, we couldn't be bothered to drive back and decided to eat what they had given us.

Both dishes were the runniest curry we had ever had (it was like flavoured water). We were unable to eat it and had to bin it. Honestly there are far FAR better curry houses in town. Very disappointed.

Definitely will never be going back.

“Spice Up Your Life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

This is a great Indian restaurant, I love the individual dishes which are prepared so beautifully, not mass produced and left to sit in a big pot. Very tasty, just like India. Service is always quick and friendly.

“Always a pleasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

We love this place and must have eaten there between 20 - 30 times. It is offers excellent food and the staff are generallly efficient. Friday and Saturday nights are very busy, but they always manage to find us a table. If a meal has not been quite what I expected, it is either refunded or exchanged for another meal without any hesitation. I think it is the best Indian restaurant in the area. The food is very fresh and not covered in lots of sloppy sauces. All the vegetarian food is excellent too.

“As good as any other”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

Just a regular Indian restaurant, no issues and nothing particularly stood out for me. Would be happy to go back again.

“Pleasant atmosphere, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2011

Ate at around 8pm on a Friday night, staff very attentive but left us to decide in peace. All our meals were above expectation and none of us left hungry. The wine list was comprehensive and the house white was a good drinkable wine. Plan on returning.
