We have had take away from here a few times as we live local but thought we'd try eating in for a change. The food as always was really good with lots of choice on the menu and the staff were really friendly and even took the time at the end of our meal to come say hello and talk... More

As with many other restaurants, very mixed reviews for Cafe Spice. I agree with a few of the other reviews, Cafe Spice is a bit hit and miss. We have had some very tasty meals and others that were barely acceptable. We have not eaten in the actual restaurant for a few years so this review is more about their... More

We eat her often at times the service is great at others not so. However the food here is always really tasty and cooked to perfection. We often have a takeaway as well and that is also good.

Service was spot on as was the food, we waited no longer that 25 mins but in the meantime we had poppadoms with relishes , the curries are made to order so one would expect wait, if people want instant food, then perhaps McDonalds is the place for them. My wife and I eat at this curry house very often... More

I have been here three times since it changed hands at some point last year, and the quality of the cooking has gone downhill a bit. Having said that, its a friendly place with good service and if you are going for a group meal its just as much about the company as the food, then it will suffice. However... More

We were regular visitors to Cafe Spice before moving out of Sturminster Newton three years ago and always raved about it. We decided to take a trip back this Saturday and sadly it was lacklustre. The service was painfully slow (making a 'quick' meal with our 6 year old into a two hour mission!) It was also uncomfortably cold due... More

Yep, been here before and rather stupidly came back for a second helping of " Indian Cuisine " Visited on Friday night with a friend. The food here is atrocious. My previous visit was blamed on the Chief. These people really just cant cook ! This time I have chicken tikka Vindaloo. It was awful. Certainly no chicken tikka, it... More

We moved to the area about a year ago and were thrilled to find an Indian Take-away that provided delicious food, by attentive staff and at a reasonable price. Having been cooking Indian food ourselves for over 30 years and also attending cooking courses in Kerala, it was wonderful to find a restaurant that matched our expectations. We consequently have...
