Took a first visit on a Saturday night after reading reviews and thinking that we could be missing out ......turns out we weren't. Staff were all very polite and the food was good and well presenred but nothing less than I would expect when eating out these days....it was the little things which stopped me from rating it higher. There... More

We called in to the Marina Spice Lounge this evening as we are staying at the Holiday Inn Express. Their chef is on holiday so no food available and this place being less than a minutes walk from the hotel was an excellent choice. The staff are brilliant and very friendly, the service was great, the food was superb and... More

So this is a pretty budget spice lounge who has the okay, cheap kind of food you'd expect. The service isn't great but you shouldn't really expect much better and a few of the sweeter meat dishes are surprisingly nice and unique.

When I went for the first time I was a bit cautious, but the quality of their food and friendliness of their staff surprised me in a pleasant way. The food is full of flavour, with big chunks of tender lamb in my dish. Don't hesitate to go and try, Mondays and Tuesdays they even have a dinner menu called... More

Visited this place with my partner as we were staying in the hotel across the water. After a long day out in London this was a great way to end our evening. The food and service were outstanding and I would recommend this place to anyone who is visiting the area.

A small eating area so booking in advance is sensible. Good food, an expansive menu and polite staff. Not overly expensive. "Indians" are plentiful in this day and age but this one stands out for all the right reasons.
