If you have never tried Indian food, you should defiantly give it a try here. The curry is so good, all of it. I loved every bit!! I had the curry chicken and mixed vegetables. With the mango smoothie type drink. Amazing!! I will defiantly go again soon, and share this goodness with my friends and family. ♥ ♥ ♥

I read the reviews prior to taking my lady friend here for dinner. They were all positive. Didn't know what to expect for the "buffet." The server was patient with us and explained the different curries and serving options. I had the lamb curry, my friend tried two of the buffet curries. Everything was excellent. The variety and taste was... More

This is a strange setup. They have a steam table near the cashier. You can order things off the steam table or have them prepared fresh from the kitchen. We choose the tali of vegetarian dishes. The food was OK, but on the bland and watery side. When I think of Indian food, I think bold and rich flavors. This... More

I had honestly been by this place dozens of times and never knew it was there until it was suggested to us. The menu is a bit overwhelming, but the staff was very helpful and even let us sample a couple items. Food was absolutely outstanding. Now that I know it's here I will be back.

The owner is rude, inconsiderate and lacks professionalism. I'll save my money on a business that cares about their customers. I went to Spice Junction with my family of four. My brother is deathly allergic to peanuts and most of the items on the menu contain peanuts or are cooked in peanut oil. This is why we placed an order... More

I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because this used to be my favorite place in Columbia. They had the best Indian buffet and I used to go once a week or else I would get withdrawals. However, last summer they decided to change their buffet style layout to a confusing menu where you pick certain items and they... More

We too made a return trip only to find that the buffet had been eliminated. We stayed and enjoyed our dinner once we deciphered the menu. Very nice family that owns this operation and totally understand why they stopped the buffet. We truly enjoyed trying different dishes and this was the perfect location to do so.

This was our first time at Spice Junction. My wife and I have eaten at all the other Indian restaurants in the Columbia area, so we decided to try this one. First off, I have no complaint with the taste of the food. It was cooked well and just the right amount of heat and spice. The trouble was the... More

I reviewed this restaurant a couple years ago, and at the time I thought it was the best Indian in Columbia (despite some odd signs and policies about wasting food). Since then, first the prices went up, then the food got worse, and now the buffet has disappeared, replaced by an odd system that seems much more wasteful. Recently, I... More

I do not like the new format at all. The combinations are odd. I would rather pay more and eat what I would like to eat from the buffet.
