Description: Spice of India,currently rated as number one restaurant in St Lucia, is a sophisticated Indian restaurant situated in the heart of Rodney Bay. Owner and Restaurateur Chef Adil has travelled across the Atlantic Ocean creating scintillating dishes to satisfy the palates of eager patrons throughout the Caribbean. Along with his sous chefs, Chef Adil has brought the modern Indian style of cooking based on ancient tandoor techniques to Saint Lucia. Get a feel for India in the uniquely designed restaurant, and succumb to the wiles of fine dining.

1-year since we discovered the Spice of India and everything has just got even better. The owner's personal touch, the friendly professional staff and superb food make for a great evening.

“De-licious,De-lovely,De-lightful !!”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

We visited this restaurant for the first time 10 days ago -can,t wait to go back ! it,s true ,it really is exceptional food ,I chose the spicy goat curry -so tender you could cut it with a spoon and very tasty .The waiters were courteous,helpful and charming and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening .there were plenty of Indian families too,enjoying themselves,which is always a good sign. We will definitely return soon to sample the chef's tasting menu for lunch .,can,t wait !Tthere is just one thing though,albeit a personal one, but I found the scent of joss-sticks,for want of a better word,a bit over-powering in the interior dining-room,didn,t think it mingled well with the delicious aromas wafting in from the kitchen ! But keep up the good work ,it,s a super place .

De-ar guest,

Lovely use of words by you in describing your experince here at SOI. I am glad that everyone enjoyed their experince here. We cannot wait to look after you during our lunch as well. Just to let you know we change our daily Chefs Tasting Lunch menu and are available for viewing on our Facebook page daily.

Your comment about incense noted and like you said, it is personal. But we will ensure that it is not extremely strong to overpower in the restaurant.

Looking forward to a repeat visit,
Chef Adil.

Both the food and service at this restaurant were great. Was a first introduction to Indian food for some of the family and was a wonderful experience. Highly recommended.

“Worth the rating”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

At least 15 members of the family showed up there on January 3rd 2012. They worked magic to get us accommodated and made a number of excellent recommendations on food to share. While it took a while to get the main courses for so many, the time went quickly by with various appetizers. Everyone seemed to have a different favorite food, but my choice was the saffron chicken. Subtle spicing. The chi tea took a long time to brew so order early - it is worth it.
