External appearances would possibly make you walk past but go in and try. It's so worth it. The ingredients of each dish are so fresh and you know it's just not chicken or lamb added to a sauce. The owner is a lovely man. It's BYOB too which makes it a reasonable meal out.

I love the Spice House and visit the restaurant and use the takeaway often. They have a huge variety of indian dishes at very reasonable prices, and also offer a Thai menu which has some lovely dishes as well. Their yogurt sauce is the best I've ever tasted!
The restaurant is BYOB with no corkage and the staff are very friendly and attentive. They are also willing to accommodate requests for changes to dishes, which is great as I am fussy about some things.
I can honestly say I have never had a bad dish here. I would really recommend the Spice House over pretty much all of the other Indians in the area (of which there are many) simply for reasons of taste, variety and value. Love it!

First time we have tried the Spice House. Have to say they now have a new regular customer!!! Have been so disappointed with takeaways in Penicuik recently. Was more than pleasantly surprised! Had the set meal No 2 with Chicken Pakora, Chicken Madras, Pilau Rice and Nan with a side of aloo gobi. Everything had it's own distinct flavour! Also ordered panir pakora and a side of dahi raitha. Loved everything but the panir pakora was my favourite with a really light non greasy batter!!!! Go try some!!!!

I have had numerous take aways from here and sat in on at least 5 occasions. The BYOB policy has no corkage fee. The staff are very friendly and attentive to your needs. I have had a vast range from their menu and would rate the food as well above average. They are happy to cook curries for you that are not specified on the sit in menu. A welcome addition to the local curry scene.
