“Superb food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

A real find this one - the best indian restaurant in Cardiff, great food and excellent service, Comfortable air-conditioned dining area. Takeaways are also available. The Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicken Korma are divine, served with excellent pilau rice and the BEST keema nan that I have ever tasted - will be back very soon :-)

“One of the best in Cardiff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

We used to travel to Cowbridge to visit another Indian restaurant. We rediscovered this gem not far from home. The food is very well presented and executed. It offers great value and the service is just right without been intrusive.

“Good night spoilt”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

The Spice Island. Loved the food. The dips and pampadams were delicious so looked forward to our main meal.

I had a Boohna (chicken), excellent. other orders were Chicken Barani, Chichen Vindaloo, and finally a madras. Pretty varied choice and all very good. Service was just right without to much fussing about. What's with the LOUD MUSIC !!. Come on surely you don't want your customers shouting at each other.

Spoilt a really good night, rather that talk about the nice food on the way home the main topic was loud music in restaraunts

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Well presented, clean restaurant. Attentive staff. Only paid £36 for a selection of curries, rices, chips and naan breads which was plenty to feed 4 adults and 3 children. The vegetable bhuna and chicken tikka masala were particularly tasty. And dont forget the free poppadoms. You cant go wrong with free poppadoms!!
