Lime pickle lovely as was onion mix and mint sauce, mango chutney not the best - did not taste anything like mango chutney. Tandoori chicken on the bone was... More

There are quite a few Indian restaurants in this area and in my opinion this is the best one. Had a meal tonight, chicken tikka chilli garlic, depth of flavour fantastic. My wife shared a chicken tikka shashlic with our daughter and said it was the best she had tasted. We're not normally ones to write a review but with... More

We have been going to this restaurant for the special lunchtime menu for a while now when we happen to be in the area. It has always been excellent value, great food and service. We have raved about it to others. Well not this last visit, I’m not sure if our usual waiter was having an off day but he... More

Although the outside looks like a church, on the inside you would not recognize it as such, but the restaurant looks very smart. Food and service were good. We ordered a full table for the whole group (chef's choice). Quality was overall good, but the portions were a bit small for us (every plate was completely empty). Price was fair.... More

This establishment is situated within an old church with lowered ceilings to give the inside a 'normal' interior. Fairly quiet evening. The staff were friendly and the good arrived in a timely manner. The food was excellent, and certainty worth a visit for those who enjoy a tasty indian.

Sit is was great and service fantastic, but last few takeaways have not been so great - smaller portions and quality not so good, despite travelling over 15 miles each way to pick it up, which was very disappointing.

Spice is in a converted church (so should be easy to find!) as consequence is a little bit dark - could be good for a romantic meal. I had a chicken tikka biryani which was very good with fresh salad garnish and a good portion size. Service was reasonable but not lightning fast but it is still worth a visit... More
