I have been coming to this restaurant for years and the quality of food does not change. It is always of a high standard, whether we eat in or takeaway. Would definitely recommend.

Met with a load of the girls for a birthday celebration. Tables were covered in white damask tablecloths, which were changed after the main course, and starched napkins. Very friendly and attentive staff. The meals were filling and well cooked. I had the chicken passanda which I can definitely recommend. All food seemed reasonably priced.

Been here twice recently, both times found it hilarious to be asked 'have you booked' when every table was empty during buffet! Greeted nicely with a handshake but it's limp, the staff their need to smile more, the older one looks like his face would crack if he smiled. Food though was top notch, as was ambience, seating and service... More

Went to the Spice Society as a surprise birthday meal for a friend not expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. Great fish curry, everyone else enjoyed theirs too. Staff are really helpful, owner even helped my partner to choose, not picking most expensive stuff !! Been back twice since, both times really good food

I think this restaurant is over rated, the food is okay, the service is okay, it's clean and that's it... There are some great Indian restaurants around, and this isn't one of them..

We live locally and regularly visit or collect a takeaway. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating and we have often just turn up without booking and they have always found us a table. We visited with my parents on Saturday the service was perfect and the food delicious. This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Beckenham,... More

My boyfriend and I fancied a curry to help get us over the Christmas / New year hump. He had stalked the menus online and hankered after the SS meat platter which was labelled as For Two online but interestingly not on the in house written menu ( a poor chap ordered it solo whilst we were there not realising...

We booked a table for a Saturday evening. Three people. Table ready, ambience good. Staff okay this trip, a bit 'spaced out', perhaps they were busy. The food, however, was superb. A rezali, a butter chicken and a dansak. All delicious. I don't know why we go anywhere else.
