“trouble with service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2011

I had made a booking for my husband and I and thought we would go for a quite indian at the spice tandoori.

The restaurant it self is clean and appealing but the service is terrible. Everytihng went well until we ordered our food. Our waiter had no clue as to how to do his job. We ordered lamb bhuna but instead came chiken bhuna and when the mushroom bhaji had so much oil we had to say something, this is when the waiter started to get angry and told us this their "spice tandoori style" My husband not wanting a confrontation as there where two other waiters looking at our table but neglected to see what the problem was. We left and never will come back to this appaling restaurant.

“Good Food, Great Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2010

We returned from a long trip and fell into the Spice Tandoori as their first customers of the evening. The service was excellent - attentive without too much interruption, and the view over the loch was very pleasant.

The food was very good, with spicy curries that weren't greasy, sag aloo that as moist and yielding and seriously hot hotplates so nothing went cold.

Overall, great value for money, good food and pleasant service - worth a visit.
