With the Spice Lounge in Hadlow closing down a few months ago we have been looking for another good Indian restaurant. Knowing that the Spice Cottage has a similar pedigree to the Spice Lounge and having tried it once a year or so ago we thought that we would give it a try. We had booked but when we arrived there was some confusion over that so things did not start well. We were seated reasonably quickly and drinks and poppadoms were ordered. Drinks arrived, plonked rather unceremoniously on the table by a rather surly waiter and we waited for our poppadoms, and waited and waited. After 30 minutes and a couple of reminders the assorted pickles arrived but no poppadoms, five minutes later the first set arrived dripping in oil and rubbery, obviously undercooked and were sent back. Five minutes later the next batch arrived, just the same as the first, we were even asked by the waiter to check to see if they were OK, what is that all about where is the quality control in the kitchen? It was at this point that we left, 40 minutes and no edible food. What is disappointment, the search goes on for a good Indian restaurant, we certainly will not be visiting the Spice Cottage again!!
