We visited simla spice during our visit to torquay we visited on a wednesday when there is an offer on and is very reasonably priced. This indian is deffinatley worth a visit and is an upper class indian resturant.

Had a great meal here. One of the best indians I have had anywhere. Service was excellent and the salads were a lot better than you normally get.

Slow Service. Give you drinks then do not take order for ages. Overpriced. Even charge you over £2 for the dips with poppadoms. Nothing like a real Indian Restaurant more like a McDonalds inside. We left and went to a Real Indian Restaurant across the road.

First visit, went in without realising there is an "eat as much as you want" buffet. This is £10.95 per person and was really good. A wide selection of dishes all fresh looking and appetising. You can't go wrong but just be careful about what you drink as drinks are pricey and this is obviously how they recoup the loss... More

Second visit, service was a little slower than the 1st visit (which we appreciated as it was far too quick last time) & friendly, food was amazing.....would definitely recommend this place & will be our first port of call next time we are in Torquay. Large selection of food and drinks, clean and lovely atmosphere to the place.
