I went with my husband for a light evening meal. We had our small dog with us, a very well behaved and calm one, who accompanies us everywhere, and has a 'fan club' of traders and customers everywhere. The weather was warm, and we wanted to sit outside in the decked area of the restaurant. We were greeted politely, shown... More

Nice place in a nice area of Oxford, out of the centre. The owner is a very gentle man. He suggested all dishes (don't remember the names, one traditional with ginger and mint, no idea about the rest). One importat thing, in many other places, when you ask for mild spicy dishes, at the end they burn. In Spice Lounge... More

We travelled here from Australia, and found this restaurant to have excellent quality Indian food by any comparison. Service was also very friendly and helpful. The location is Summerton, just outside Oxford, which was a convenient 20 minute walk from our B&B. Highly recommended !

If you're looking for great tasting authentic indian food served with a smile, this is the place to go. This restaurant is never empty. Aside from the great, attentive, yet not intruding service, the food is of high quality and full of flavour. If you're adventurous with spicy food, they don't hold back on their truly spicy dishes, and will... More

Two people for a dinner with usual rice curry dishes and beer. I wonder sometimes if this is the most predictable food in the world, despite 'spice lounge' connotation. The taste was good, generic, the ingredients alright. Nothing to complain but nothing to rave about. The interior is a bit dark, for those who like it, but the floors seemed... More

Very busy but greeted with a warm smile and immediately found a table. Quick to take our order and bring the drinks and food. Attentive and helpful staff. Starters were small portions. All food was tasty but be warned: the "hot" dishes are very hot!

Wow...anyone who thinks that all Indians taste the same clearly haven't been to the Spice Lounge! Excellent service and the best tasting Indian I've had the pleasure of eating. I will return to Oxford just to eat at the Spice Lounge again
