Visited this popular restaurant over a Bank Holiday. I say 'popular' because it was packed. On asking the reception desk if there was room for us both I received a non committal grunt. So we waited. We were eventually shown to a table but a few minutes later we were asked to move to another table The waiters were very... More

We usually use "taste of India" next door, service always amazing, so friendly and prompt. Decided to phone spice village for a takeaway for a "change". Wish I hadn't bothered. Been there several times and I have to say the food is great..... When it finally arrives! Service has always been extremely slow and disorganised. Decided to give them a... More

I was a little concerned about going to this restaurant based on the reviews, however I was pleasantly surprised. This restaurant is in centre of Emsworth in St Peter’s square and it includes a car park. Alternatively, South Street car park is a short 5 minute walk away and currently free after 6pm. This was a mid-week evening visit. The... More

I can honestly say that this was the tastiest indian meal I have eaten, we loved it, the meat was so tender, sauces were tasty, service was 'relaxed' but who cares when you've got fresh poppadums and chutneys etc to munch on.

We've been here many times since we moved down south,both for a sit down meal & takeaway. The food is always fantastic and reasonably priced,the only down side is the lady on the front of house,she always looks thoroughly fed up and never greets you or says goodbye (which is a pet hate of mine) but the rest of the...

We visited Spice Village on Saturday as a party of six. It took a while for anyone to take our drinks orders. We'd asked for table water and this never came, just the beers. It took four times of asking before we finally received the water. We then waited ages for someone to take our meal order. The waiter recited... More

I have been to many Indian restaurants in this country and abroad to include India. This restaurant gets bad press for slow service, It's true - it can be slow especially around 8pm on Friday and Saturdays nights. If you need a quick curry after copious beers then head to the one next door. If you prefer far superior food... More

Alway have a nice curry here or takeaway service is pretty good. Occasionally can be a lil slow dependant on how busy it gets. full of flavour chicken balti, rogan josh, madras packs a lil punch, naans are good here and large. Onion bajees are very good. Pricing fair. Wines are not that great if I'm honest. Plenty of seating.... More

Ate here with six colleagues the food was of good quality with a reasonable price but the only downside was the slow pick of the used plates. Neatly 30 minutes before the table was cleared. Other that this would probably attend again.
