Eaten here several times. Favorites: lamb vindaloo, chicken tikka masala, breads. Good quality ingredients, flavorful sauces, appropriate heat level ( which can be augmented with a side of chopped hot chilis). Highly recommended.

Having recently moved to the area from a more rural county, I missed the places where I could walk in and feel like everyone knew me, treated me like a firend. Spice Melody is such a place in the middle of an often-snobby county. This...More
