“Fabulous flavoursome food”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

Ate here with our two children (8 and 10) who love curry. We had a pre starter and some yummy poppadums with some great pickles and relishes. I tried the achari goat curry which was awesome, the butter chicken and chana masala were also excellent. A very busy place so book to avoid disappointment. Also had a great chai tea at the end of the meal.

“ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! One of the very best Indian meals I have ever had.”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

This restaurant is absolutely one that every single visitor to St Lucia should make a real effort to visit.

From the second you walk in, you are greeted by an army of efficient, friendly and knowledgeable staff. The two owners take time to personally greet you (a feature that is rarely offered in English restaurants) and it is abundantly clear that they have such pride in the food that they prepare and cannot do enough to make the evening special.

You are presented with a barrage of tasters throughout the meal which makes the evening even more enjoyable.

The cocktails were probably the best we had whilst on the island and the vast wine selection was appropriately paired with our meal choices by the wine waiter.

The food itself was outstanding. It arrived in very good time and the chefs clearly know how to use spices to enhance the meals they are serving.

The tell-tale sign is that the restaurant is busy, however, this does not prevent it from being the most efficient service we had throughout our stay on the island.

Being the number one restaurant in St Lucia, it would have been oh so easy for Spice of India to rest on their laurels. This simply has not happened. To miss out on this little gem would be criminal!

“Excellent Indian food - even coming from an fussy Indian!”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

Being Indian, we always look for one night of good indian food when we go on holiday - so thankful to reviewers of Spice of India as it's what tempted us to go there because it was absolutely worth it! We loved the food, lively atmosphere and service - specially loved that they tailored the food for us as they understood that unlike the rest of the clientele we were indian and therefore had a different palette. They even made us stuff that wasn't on the menu, all of which we loved. The Paneer skewers were to die for (not on the menu, but ask for them if you are there - they were worth it!). All the chats were delicious too. Thanks for a lovely meal!

Dear Gary,

Fantastic review. I am glad that you thought that this was the best Indian food you had at SOI. You are right about Deep Fried Chocolate Cake. I must admit that it is one of the only two items on the menu which is non Indian but come on, who will complain about it once they dig into this fried Chocolate Cake.

Thanks for taking your time to write a comment.

Warm regards,
Chef Adil.

“Excellent , exceeding expectations”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

This was recommended to me by Jessica & Monica at crystals .
On a drive up to gro islet we stopped at spice of india we were told it was exceptional which was of course proven . It awakened every taste bug in my mouth. My kids who normally arent to keen on Indian food were converted. We joked about bring the chef back with us to the US .

Definately the best meal I've had in a longtime
