“Great Indian, if a little off the beaten track”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

We've eaten here and had a number of take-out / home deliveries from Pimlico Spice. The food is of a high quality - definitely a good way above your average Indian - it's certainly the best Indian in Pimlico. The King Prawn Peri Peri Prawns are great if you like your food spicey.

This place deserves to be much better frequented - it can be quite quiet at times, but is definitely worth looking up.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Delicious. Great service. Proper curry!
I have been here a few times and it has always been excellent. The Tarka Dahl is incredible - as is the Chicken madras and stuffed Paratha!

“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.
