Went over for dinner just once - the pepper soup they served was essentially inedible since someone seemed to have emptied a salt cellar into it. Never again.

When you walk in, especially at lunch, it is a grubby place..... And then you get the food from the kitchen and have the all you can eat buffet...... It is great food at a very reasonable price. If you are every in Abuja and don't know what to do for lunch..... This is a great place to go.

Rely and his staff run a decent Indian restaurant here in Gwarimpa. Decent veggie dishes and the chicken jalfrezi is very tasty with freshly cooked chicken.

I did not enjoy this food. It was as if they forgot to spice in it, ironic given the name. It was expensive for the quality of food provided as well.

A comfortable and cozy place. Does not give the stuffy feel of a high-end, 'fine-dining' joint. Moderate prices. The main course has quite authentic Indian taste, though the Indian breads (Roti) has a little too much "maida" (Indians would know what I am talking about). Staff is friendly, but when we visited we found the staff to customer ratio on... More

Good for a buffet lunch. Avoid the toilet lest you want to lose your appetite. Really hot during Harmatan since resembles a factory shed more than a restaurant, so try getting a seat near the ACs.

This place is worn out. The food was ok. We visited for buffet lunch. The meal was ok but not even warm. The soul was less than warm and had to ask the waiter to make it hot. The tea was also not as per Indian standard. However, the taste of food was decent. May be some attention by management... More

I ate here with a group of colleagues while we were staying at the Bolton White, across the street. We sat in an open-air area and had no complaints about the ambiance This is not fine dining, it's just reasonably priced, well-cooked food in a convenient setting. The staff was friendly if a bit slower that American standards. I've learned... More

I went to Spice Foods for their Sunday buffet. As other reviewers have mentioned, the decor is not very eye-pleasing. The food was ok. The buffet had a decent selection of vegetarian and meat options. The dessert selection wasn't very good - over-ripe pineapple and rather dry gulab jamun. The service was excellent and very attentive - probably because there... More
