We chose mild dishes to suit those sharing with us. Three different vegetable curries were adequate for 4 people with two rices. Lovely flavours. Recommended.

This restaurant, opposite the Bon March Supermarket is a great find. Run by an Irish couple it serves spicy Indian food. I like my food reasonably hot and found the 'medium hot' curry right at the edge of my comfort; so go for the mild option if in doubt. They do lunch time specials which are very good value and...

The restaurant had lots of Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten Free options. I personally am not any of these but was travelling with a friend who is and we both liked the way they were getting away from the thought process of Indian means lots of meat. The service was great, we had a great young American girl serve us with... More

The food and atmosphere was great. The service was okay. We asked for a take away container and a small cup of the sauce and they charged us 200 vatu for the sauce.

After having a great experience at Spice last year. I returned this year once again. The friendly reception. The homely and very warm welcoming feelings just makes the food experience one of a fantastic level. Try the Coriander Chicken extra spicy it is totally worth it. Planing to go back when ever i got to Vanuatu.

We stub led on this restaurant while on our way to the supermarket and decided to try it for dinner. The advertised prices outside looked fair but when we sat down we were told these were lunch specials and not available for dinner. Portions were fair and very tasty and one portion of rice fed two of us. No starters,... More

Thank you for visiting Spice and delighted that you found portion sizes good and your meal tasty - as our customers usually do. We apologise if you were confused by our lunch blackboards which are on display outside even if they are clearly labelled "Lunch" and it was evening time when you dined. Our lunch portion sizes tend to be... More

Walked past this restaurant earlier in the day. Appeared well presented and clean. Read TA reviews and figured so many great reviewers can't be wrong. This restaurant delivered in every department. The manager and staff were friendly, the restaurant clean and the meals were the best Indian we have had in a long time. The prices were like everything in... More

Nice family run business, but the food wasn't great and it was very very over priced. Maybe it's bc species are expensive?!.,??. Not sur but defiantly left a bad taste in our mouth.
