“Great breads and curries”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Spice of India has very basic seating and its half opened restaurant can let in the noise. The Korean fair was on and it was pretty noisy. We were served by this lovely waitress from India. She is brisk and fast....great at upselling. We ordered the Aloo Gobi, Punjabi fish, Romali bread, naan, and some mutton curry. Food arrived fairly fast but the drinks took a long time. Restaurant is very short handed, and layout could be improved. Parts of restaurant could be cleaner and they should separate where kids could sit, and yell their heads off.

Food-wise, it was authentic.

“Unbelievably Bad Service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

I've just returned from having a meal at the Spice of India, and have to say it was such a total let down. Given its in one of the best Shopping centres in KL you expect the quality of food and service to be good! However my experience was the staff to be extremely rude. The quality of the food average. I ordered vegetable samosas for a starter. Very dry indeed with no chutney or accompanying sauce of any kind. Not even a salad but a few limp cabbage leaves. The waitress unbelievably rude and when asked if they had any chutneys grunted something to the effect of no chutneys. She didnt even check or ask anyone and I simply got the impression she couldn't be bothered. It was late and I had arrived at 9.30 pm and apparently they close at 10pm, however when asked if I could take the remainder of my paneer curry with me and have 2 extra rotis to take with me, I was told promptly by the same waitress no as it was too late. I have to say terrible service at this restaurant. I did speak to another waiter who apologised on behalf of the rude waitress and did pack my food away. I am not impressed with this restaurant at all and do not reccomend it at all!

“Good food, inefficient service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

The food here was lovely. The butter chicken, in particular, was very good. They struggle to stock their fruit for fresh juices. service is extremely slow and the staff's attitude towards you as, a patron, will leave much to be desired. However, I would visit again just for the food. This is worth visiting, but please, bear in mind the service is not what you go there for.
