“Perfect Pimlico Spice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

The food was delicious it was perfectly formed with all the flavoring and spices. The service that i received was excellent as well as the timing , the staff were very friendly and helpful. In my view this is a modern and attractive restaurant in Pimlico. Overall the restaurant is phenomenal and is a great place for family and friends to have a perfect dinner.

“Pimlico Spice - below average”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

The standard of cooking is nothing special, the menu derivative, the service slow, the staff surly. There are other Indian style restaurants in the neighbourhood that far surpass Pimlico Spice. The place was practically empty ( just one couple) apart from us.

“Unassuming, great value, and still one of my favourite Indian places in London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Pimlico Spice is a must visit to anyone wanting to have fantastic qualtiy Indian food which is in the league of some of the heavy weights not far away towards Knightsbridge but at a fraction of the price.
The restaurant is sporatic in terms of how busy it gets, so you will need to BYO atmosphere, but a superb array of different dishes and levels of heat, served by very friendly waiters makes you quickly forget that.
They offer takeaway as well which is as high quality as eating in and comes with a nice little discount.

We were staying in a nearby hotel and were looking for a nice restaurant. By chance, we stumbled upon this place. Excellent food, excellent service, stylish ambience, reasonably priced. Definitely recommended!

“One of the best Indian restaurants in London, excellent food & service...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

I've had take aways and ate in the restaurant. Staff are really attentive, ambience is really peaceful. Food has always been great, and fresh. I find many indian restaurants have poor quality food, poor decor and staff that don't seem to want to be there (Not all, but many). This is not the case at Pimlico Spice. They also didn't rush us either. Prices very reasonable.

10 out of 10 in all areas, truly amazing restaurant, a diamond of `pimlico. Would definitely go out of my way to eat there. Better than some of the so say best restaurants on Brick Lane.
