We offered a take away from Island Spice last night and was very impressed with the overall flavours and authenticity. The only thing we were disappointed with was the Masala Dosa. Not even half full and cold. The curries were great, particularly the Mahi Mahi Coconut Curry and Lamb Palak. Would definitely order again!

Mom and I spent a few days here last year. I picked up take out from here one night. Delicious and very reasonably priced.

We loved Island Spice so much that we ate there three times (!) during our 10-day stay on the island. We brought more family members with us each time, which means we got to taste no fewer than 10 entrees (with emphasis on fish and shrimp) - and ALL dishes were absolutely delicious, fresh, and authentic-tasting. With an average entree... More

Great food, good service, super authentic! Not tons of ambiance, but friendly staff. Lots of vegan choices on the menu. 11 year old son begged us to take him for burgers beforehand. He ended up ordering one of the crepes and LOVED it! Will return.

This is a family operated restaurant. We ordered Dahl and Chana Masala. Both were absolutely delicious. The vegetable samosas and garlic were also amazing! You could tell that everything was made fresh and was super authentic. We wished we lived here so we could come regularly. We will definitely be back next time we come to town for vacation.

My wife and I come here quite often when we are in the mood for exotic food. The curry and Naan is excellent and always prepared well. The staff is very friendly and caters to your needs. If you are looking to try some exotic or vegan food on Anna Maria Island, give this place a try!!!

We love Indian food and saw this place 50 ft from our condo, so we knew we had to try it. We were not disappointed. We all had a veggie samosa for our app.Three out of five of our party our vegetarians, so we decided to split a few dishes for the main course. We ordered the Dahl (hot), Aloo... More

Small but wonderful. Great menu PLUS they will make items not on menu. They take care to be sure you understand dishes being offered. Great beers from India if inclined toward such. Friendly service.

Food was poor, chicken was chewy and over cooked, the buttered chicken tasted like marmite. Some of our rice had a hair in it and the Sprite and Coke tasted of cleaning fluid. Didn't feel clean, so would not go again.

Enjoyed the atmosphere at Island Spice and Ram, the owner, was very, very nice. $16 for a half chicken breast, sauce and rice is just too pricey, delicious as it was.
