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.

I went there with a colleague of mine and was surprised by how busy it was and how tasty the food was! This was their famous 1100vuv lunch special. I actually paid for an upgrade which was excellent too! Service was calm and efficient and fast! Food was soooooo Tasty though not authentic Indian still has awesome spice.

What a great lunch we had here! We had the beef curry special for 1100vatu, and upgraded it got another 500vatu. There was plenty to share for two. We also grabbed coffee and cake each, do for 2600 Vatu, we left feeling well full. The Irish owner came out for a chat, and the food was pretty tasty. Odd location,... More

This is not the cheapest option for Indian curry in Vanuatu but as far as quality is concerned, it's by far the best that I've discovered. Also handy for a takeaway if shopping at Au Bon Marche across the road. Put in your order, go do your shopping, and they'll have it ready for you when your shopping is done.... More

We had lunch there. Ordered for an upgrade of set veg lunch. Food was tasty and good serving. Pakoda's were excellent. It was nice to speak to the owner couple, an Irish one. Vanuatu is a costly place and the prices, I found quite high. Around Australian $21 for a veg curry. The sitting area is std. The location is... More

This is the first Indian restaurant I have visited where you are asked how hot/spicy you would like your food. We were warmly welcomed by the owner and his daughter who both took time to discuss our order and engage in conversation. The location does not initially look promising, being on a fairly busy road (for Vanuatu), between the supermarket... More

We ate at this place a couple of years ago... is now much changed from previous ownership. Friendly service... Great food...and they are very happy to match the spice rating to your taste. Will definitely go back.
