Good choice of both types of cuisine. Hot wok cooking and decent sweet selection . £15 per head so not bad value.

Good variety of food with great live stations. Large variety of Indian curries and starters. There could've been a greater selection of desserts.

I love this restaurant, my very picky friend loved it too. There is so much to choose from, proper curries to freshly cooked noodles where you select all the ingredients. I always seem to be a little more adventurous when I eat here.

I have visited spice route many times over the years, but hadn't been for a while until yesterday. I WISH I HADNT!!! The place has gone seriously downhill. Looks like it needs a good cleaning. Anyway on to the food. The standard has gone downhill. In a big way. Poor selection, dry over cooked food. But now the worst part.... More
