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. Also newly opened waterfront restaurant at Capella Marina in Marigot Bay---MASALA BAY--serving Indian and Indo Chinese fusion cuisine.

“Something Different!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Thanks to the owner for a fabulous dining experience. He takes the time to greet (and even get to know) all his customers. The food was excellent as well as the service. The breads were amazing too. No complaints! If you visit the island it's a wonderful place for dinner.

“Best indian in St Lucia or even the Caribbean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Ate dinner during our stay 11-18 March. Had a mixed seafood kebab starter which was the best I have had. We then ate goat saag and a chicken madras. Madras was hot but full of flavour and the goat was to die for. Never eaten goat but can only recommend it! Staff very friendly and met the chef and owner who is very proud and quite rightly so. If I ever go back to St Lucia I would eat there every time. If this restaurant was in London I would eat there weekly. Go and try it out!!

“FANTASTIC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

We had been referred to Spice of India and had no idea what to expect....The restaurant and staff exceeded every expectation we could have had! So much so that we had Adil (gracious owner) prepare food for our private plane for the trip back to the States and he did an amazing job with that as well! Our passengers are avid fans of Adil's restaurant and frequent it several times per trip down to St. Lucia. Best Indian food I've ever had anywhere.....

“Still the Best Indian Food Ever!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Well what can I say. Visited this restaurant back in June 2012 and submitted a review of excellence. My husband and I returned March 2013 and not only was the food fantastic but the service still is second to none. The owner really takes time to speak to his customers. Anyone who visits Rodney Bay and doesn't visit the Spice of India really is missing out on something special. We were all inclusive in our restaurant but ate here twice on our holiday. I think this just speaks volumes of this Excellent Restaurant. Thank you again for making our anniversary and my husbands birthday very special. Can't wait to return.
