This place was my local for about a year and never failed to impress! The staff were always friendly and the food was always great - best butter chicken in Dunedin. Allow BYO too which is always nice.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel manager. We are big Indian food fans and were looking forward to our visit. We were very disappointed with the food. None of the dishes had anything going for them. It is a bit sad when an Indian restaurant can't even get samosas right. They were doughy flavorless lumps of pastry. Not good... More

My wife and I go here weekly and are never disappointed! On Mondays they do $10 curries so the wait can be a little bit long but it's always worth it :) On slower nights the owner (Sahib) will often come out and say hi to the regulars and sat by us one night to get to know us a... More

Really really yum Indian food. Absolutely loved our visit yesterday. Food was served very promptly and service was good. Curries were rich and made to the exact spice level we asked for. The portion was great for the price. We dined in but noticed lots of takeaway orders went out while I was there.

Indian Spice is great & very well priced. They make my favourite naan bread in Dunedin & have a great $10 curry special on Monday nights.

I have almost been through the entire menu and have loved each and every dish. Butter Chicken and Rogan Josh being my personal favorites.

Great food, clearly worth the wait if there is some. Monday evening mains at 10$ are the perfect solution.

We decided to try this restaurant as was in the entertainment book, but unfortunately the food was not great. The onion bhajis were completely dry and their sauce like water. We didn't even finish one between us. My husband had Chicken Tikka Marsala and I had Chicken Korma and mine was watery and incredibly sweet and my husbands was tomatoey... More

Was in Dunedin for business and was taken to this place by a friend. What a great little resturant with a great selection of dishes and at reasonable prices. One waitress was not that great with her undertsanding of English but apart from that the meal was tasty and hot and was served within a reasonable time. I would definately... More
