This is a small restaurant specializing in Indian fiids in Dunedin. Overall the variety of dishes is quite good and the best thing is that they do have Goan delicacies present. Food quality with respect to the satisfaction of taste buds is quite satisfying as is the quantity of the portion served. The staff is also very warm and courteous... More

Great Indian food. My favourite is rogan josh. We get regular takeouts here. Great for dine in as well. Adds to the diversity of the valley

-"Excuse me lady, could you bring us some water?" -"Yes" Then we waited 20 minutes. Only 6 people were in the restaurant. We basically go to this restaurant every week since mid of 2016. The more we visited, the more ignorance we have. 就住在但尼丁,印度咖喱爱好者,这家店来了不下20次,杀熟的地方,手艺尚可但是老板娘服务态度非常不好,最好不要去店里。 如果非要吃,那就买了外卖就好。

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.
