“Absolutely excellent!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

I absolutely LOVE eating at Spice!
The lunch buffet is an excellent way to try a wide variety of delicious dishes. It is such a terrific deal at $10!! This includes salads, warm naan bread and desserts!!! Plus you are eating a piping hot meal literally the minute you arrive!! Great for people who are just on their lunch break and are in a hurry.
Then theres dinner which is a whole new dining experience! There is so much to choose from on the menu that its nice to go with a group of friends and share a bunch of dishes. The coconut naan bread is worth the trip alone!!! Yummmmmmm just writing this makes me want to go there again for dinner tonight.
One last thing... The owner just exudes hospitality. He makes everyone feel more than welcome and truly cares that every customer leaves happy.
SPICE... IS... AWESOME!!!!

“A Little Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

We had several dishes delivered and to me, they tasted like the sauces, such as Patak, that can be purchased in the grocery store. To summarize, there was no "Wow" factor.I was expecting cuisine more similar to another Indian restaurant that we frequent in Barrie.

Thanks for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. It's always great to hear back from our guests, because it lets us know what we are doing right and what we can be doing better.

I'm sorry to hear that we couldn't "wow" you. Impressing our customers with consistent quality and excellent customer service is always our primary concern.

What did you order? The kitchen works tirelessly to create high-quality dishes full of flavor, but we are always looking for ways to improve, so any further feedback you might have would be greatly appreciated. I hope you'll be back to give us another chance. I know we have what it takes to wow you.

All the best,

“YOU MUST TRY THIS PLACE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

The food here is simply awesome. If you've never tried Indian food give it a try. I have brought many people here and all love it. We go at least once a month. You can't beat the 10 buck lunch buffet. We went for the dinner one night and ordered off the menu. It was one of the best meals we have ever had. Very fresh and flavourful. It was a little pricey at 50 bucks (no drinks) but we also had two more meals each at home with the leftovers. This is hands down the best Indian in Barrie (and I have tried em all). The staff really demonstrate their appreciation for your patronage.

“Amazing Lunch Buffet!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Amazing food at Spice. The lunch buffet is made up of the most popular Indian dishes, and they are cooked to prefection. Great, full flavours and delicious naan bread baked fresh for us. The restaurant and bathrooms were spotless and had a great atmosphere. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. I will definetly be going back to Spice and highly recommend trying it if you've never experienced Indian cusine.

Bonus points for the quality of food you get for your money!
