“Awesome!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

The food was simply awesome, and I really liked the service in the restaurant - really tough to find such good service in India, actually. I'm not too sure if they seem to have preferential treatment, though, cus as a solo traveler I realize I was treated a little "less important" than that of bigger groups coming in - didn't have the nuts as the starter, and certainly didn't have the basin of water to wash my hands in after dipping my naan into my curries. I mean, i don't usually pick on this - but for the price I paid, service definitely counts more than anything else.

Another issue I have is the price: the price is definitely a little higher than the usual prices you find in restaurants (can you believe it, the total tax is 28%. ridiculous, if you ask me). But if you are willing to pay those extra bucks - why not?

“Amazing food and immaculate service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

We stayed in Agra for two night, and went to this restaurant for dinner on both evenings.
The food definitely lived up to its expectations. The garlic tandoori chicken was fantastic and we LOVED the butter chicken. The portions were large and filling. Highly recommended!

“Awesome Dal Bukhara”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Really loved food at Pinch of Spice. You have to be patient to have food at this place, as generally there is waiting at this restaurant at dinner time. However, the wait was worth it as the food was really great and I can say this comfortably that Dal Bukhara at this restaurant was one of the best that I have had till date.

“It was not that great As we expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

The food was not that good as expected. They only used masala and the taste was strong. The staff was nice and the restaurant was well maintained. Also they did not served alcohol.
