Simla Spice Torquay 10/10 We had not booked so just walked in. The restaurant is large and spacious but cosy. We were greeted and selected a table by the window with a view of the night life. It was warm and comfortable. The menus looked brand new. We were directly asked if we would like drinks which came soon. I... More

Having a heavy cold, I wanted something really tasty to clear the airways, and was not disappointed. The Chicken dosa starter was light and the main course (a special balti with spinach) was spicy and tasty. Very good naan bread too, soft without being doughy. The starter & main course were also part of a special weekday deal so very... More

We were staying in Paignton for a weekend and liked the look of this place from a browse on Trip Advisor. So you have to hunt around a bit for parking but considering it was a Saturday night it didn't take too long. I was surprised how quiet it was for a Saturday but it is a holiday town out... More

I asked for my main meal not to be spicy as I can't eat spicy food, the waiter assured me it would be mild, well I couldn't even eat it, after one mouth full my mouth was burning, we told the waiter but...

Saturday visit. Poppadoms and drinks were swift. Starter and mains not ordered with drinks which may of speeded up the 45 min wait for starters and then another 40mins for mains later. Starter which was house special was good. Main another special was not. Not much meat and far too many onions.
