Been coming here for years, never had a bad experience and always loved the food.. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the manager is a top bloke who takes his business seriously and wants the best for his customers . We also have takeaway meals most weeks and same applies always on time and good food 😃

Enjoyed our visit enjoyed the food. The staff were very helpful explaining the various dishes but I just thought they were a bit over attentive once we had been served. Not always a bad thing I know but a bit of a pain. All in all I would visit again.

I have been to this restaurant twice. Pleasant place, nice staff and the food was nice but not great. The Sunday buffet really needs improvement. Sad watery dishes. I would go again, but never for the buffet.

We popped in after a concert, tired and hungry for a light meal. The staff were as warm and welcoming as ever, and totally flexible the needs of our light appetities. We had great conversations with the staff, including the owner and look forward to many more visits ...and we didn't suffer deli-belly after! One of the few Indian restaurants... More

Well where do I start ??? I guess at the beginning on arrival we were greeted by wonderfully friendly staff and seated around an open fire where you choose and have your drinks served to you. We were then shown professionally to our table with the waiter bringing your drinks through on a tray. The spice lounge is a lovely... More

SPICE LOUNGE The Spice Lounge is a traditional India Restaurant, located some 4 miles from the nearest town (Blackburn or Great Harwood) after following a winding hill climb to get there. On winter nights it must be a nightmare to travel there by road, if the Council Gritting team have not been around! I understand there are no public transport... More

First time visit to this India due to our other closing down. The staff were friendly and the food was lovely. The staff helped to explain what was vegan and what wasn't and why. When I arrived at about 9pm on Friday night the venue was big but very quiet I would highly recommend this Indian.
