Due to cdc guidelines, this restaurant no longer serves buffet style. We did feel though that since there isn’t a buffet to distract from the cooking staff that the quality of what they serve would be better. We were sadly disappointed. There was only one...other table which had guest when we arrived so it was awesome that we didn’t have to mess with tons of people. We ordered the chicken briyani and the chicken chettinad. The flavor of the chettinad was good but it must have been a little different style than we were used to. It wasn’t bad at all. The briyani however had a very strange flavor to it. We’ve eaten here lots of times before and have never had briyani this strange almost like the cook used the wrong ingredients. We decided not to say anything about it and decided that this was probably not a place that we would continue to frequent at all.More

My husband and I visit Spice N' Rice at least twice a month. I have tried their buffet and their sit down dinner menus. We both have our favorites but we still try new things on the menu. I think I had tried about 15...different dishes off the menu. I am an amateur home cook and I would love to learn how Spice N. Rice produces such amazing food. The restaurant has never been less than impeccable, the service is very good and the food is, in my opinion, our of this world.More

I intend not to offend any one but compelled to write this review as it ruined our fun trip to Kansas city down on September 6th . we group of 7 friends decided to eat early dinner at Spice N rice and ordered regular Indian...food . the food was half cooked and same spices were used pretty much in all dishes . over price food . after 2 hours we all had same symptoms of bloating , nausea and diarrhea . we had to shorten our trip and returned back to home . make sure you inquire about the freshness of food before you decide to order .More

Worst staff and worst taste food. I was searched online options around for placing food order, when i almost tying to place order online on this restaurant, realized no where i can mention about spice levels, so called for details then turned out to be...placing an order, at ending of call he told me about 28$, then i realized online is 26$. so i called again to cancel phone order which is slightly expensive. My call was still connected and listening... but person is laughing with other staff that about for $1 order got changed... etc... that upsets me.. because i care about every penny... might be this restaurant staff are rich...i hate this place.. Finally tasted the food. its worst food i ever tasted. for this taste levels why so much rude behavior of staff that i don't understandMore

This was hands down the best indian buffet I have ever had. So much selection plus the food was excellent in quality. The goat curry was so yummy! If I lived here i would definitely be back!

I love Indian food—there is always so many complex flavors, interesting ingredients, and potential for unique dishes. Spice n Rice delivers on this with a great selection of menu items and a lunch buffet—good for meat-eaters and vegetarians. I first learned of them through Door...Dash and then came for their lunch buffet. I would highly recommend Spice n Rice through a delivery service. The portions delivered were very hearty, traveled well, and arrive hot (granted, my work is about a 10-minute drive from the restaurant). Taking the delivery and lunch buffet together, everything I ate was delicious. My one of my two favorite dishes are the Vegetable Korma, a medley of fresh vegetables cooked in cream, onions, tomatoes, cashews, and almonds. I loved it so much, I skip on the rice so I can eat more of it and use the naan to sop up all the delicious sauce. The other dish I love is the Butter Chicken, a Tandoori boneless chicken served in a traditional tomato and onion sauce. The chicken pieces were tender and marinated well in the sauce; again, no rice, but use the naan to scoop up all that awesome sauce too. Their Vegetable Pakora, fried battered vegetables, tamarind, and mint chutney is also flavorful—well-cooked so it isn’t heavy on the fry. I like using it to scoop up the sauces too. And I love that places like this serve a Mango Lassi—the perfect digestif after what almost-always-is for me, a big lunch (it helps avoid a food coma at work). I believe Indian food is one of those cuisines best served in a buffet because with so many novel and unique dishes, it makes it easy to try small samples of a lot of interesting choices and then figure out what you like and would pass on next time. So when you come to Spice n Rice, you won’t be disappointed ordering something off their menu, but I recommend coming to their buffet first, to try almost-all of what they have to offer. I want to rate them at a 3.5, but will round up on this one.More

Not a bad little place for a quick bite, found in a strip mall near a Whole Foods and the Sprint campus. Had the goat Curry, which has a lot of bones. Might recommend the lamb instead ( had this on a previous visit). "Medium"...spicy had my nose running. Good value.More

My friends and I went here because it was recommended as amazing food. I was a little concerned when I first arrived and there was no one else in the restaurant at dinner time around 7 PM which is typically The busiest time in Kansas...City. There’s a little odd because there is a portion of the restaurant where you tap on the screen to order takeout right next-door to the restaurant. However I was quickly told that the restaurant was right next-door. I was given water and a drink in a friendly smile upon my arrival. And ordering was easyAnd efficient. The food was delicious and brought to us on lovely trays that separated all the food. The odd part came with the waitress who was waiting on us. She kept saying how our food looked so good and how hungry she was. One little comment wouldn’t had of been A big deal, but she said it two or three times. I friend even told her maybe she should go get something to eat. Came time to pay my friend took extra care to tell her that was to be split three ways but that she would take the appetizer. However when she passed out the checks she received my bill and I received her’s. Unfortunately, I had already been rung up. Instead of avoiding everything we just decided to pay what we had. I think with a little bit more training this waitress could be good because she is very friendly.More

We were very pleasantly surprised by the lunch buffet. I am a veggie girl, and they had the buffet split one side meat dishes the other side veggie dishes, which made it really easy. Everything we had was very good. This place is definitely going...on our Friday lunch rotation.More

I love the food and also hate the food here. Their flavors are great but inconsistent so recommending it to my friends results in a hit or miss. When they get it right, their spices are awesome and I would recommend their Briyani all day.

My daughter and I have been looking for a new Indian buffet since our favorite one closed and we found this one last week. The food was good and there was a good variety on the buffet of both meat and vegetarian dishes. You can...also order from the menu if you prefer. We tried the buffet on a Saturday afternoon which was very affordable at $12.99 p/person.More

My husband and I used to visit this restaurants many times before they changed it to the bigger place that it is now. The food was great till a month ago and i would have easily given a 4 star then. We visited the restaurant...today again and the food quality has degraded by 100 percent. We ordered 2 different curries but they were both tasting the same. Pakora was just chickpea flour refried multiple times and rice came after we had almost finished eating. Also the customer service was poor. When we gave our feedback to the owner he was not on the receiving end.More
