Description: Spice Quarter is on the first floor of the popular restaurant hub, the Old Brewery Quarter in Cardiff city centre. Unlike the capital’s tens of ‘cheap eat’ restaurants, Spice Quarter places itself in the a la carte fine dining set. They've got the contemporary look right. And the food’s genuinely excellent. Visible hard at work in the glass fronted kitchen, each of the five chefs, recruited from luxury hotels in Delhi and Bombay, specialises in cooking from their regional home. So from the street-side eateries of Punjab comes a smooth butter chicken, while a Malabari fish curry could have come direct from the South Indian coast.

“Excellent as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

We went to the spice quarter for a mid week meal and have to be honest the standards have not dropped. The food was lovely and the staff were very friendly. This is our favourite Indian restaurant in Cardiff and will definitely return.

“Go Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014 via mobile

We have tried a number of Indian restaurants in Cardiff and have been left wanting. Spice Quarter has filled that gap between the high end Purple Poppadom and the baulk standard fare. The food tonite was excellent. The starters were imaginative and very tasty, mine the potato fry and the chicken for my partner. Mains were also excellent. Good wine list and a decent offering in the Puds section.

My one gripe is that the plates were not hot. Can be forgiven and will return

“Delicious Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

We had a delicious meal - the staff were very attentive - excellent lunch deal - you have to ask for this otherwise you will be presented by the rather pricey al la carte menu
