“Aromatic, clean, high quality Indian cuisine made authentic with care!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

I am a frequent customer here and so is my 9 year old son! The spices are beautiful and the food beats any toronto Indian cuisine. The owners name is PJ and he puts care and compassion into this place! The paneer. Butter chicken, tandoori chicken, saffron rice and naan bread are our favorites, as is a mango lassi. Always impressed and still drive up from the city to enjoy barrie and come to spice. If you've never had Indian, make this your first choice!!!

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience on TripAdvisor. We are really glad that you like our quality of food, ambience and the service. Regarding the selection, if you look at the price ($ 10) for all you can eat lunch buffet which includes 10 main items, 4 salads, 2 desserts and hot & fresh Naan bread, condiments, it is pretty good deal for the Barrie market. You also need to compare what you can get in other restaurants / fast food for $10.

Since we opened as SPICE, we have consistently improved the food quality, service and the atmosphere and your feed back will help us to improve further more. Thank you so much & look forward to see you again.

“Great taste and quality at Spice!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

I am always impressed by the dining experience at Spice Restaurant. I often have business luncheon meetings at Spice, and no matter who I bring with me, they are happy with their experience. The food is always both delicious and fresh. I like the variety and quality of the buffet (and I always go back for more butter chicken). The Naan bread is always delivered hot and fresh to our table. The relaxed and attentive staff make it easy to meet over a tasty lunch, with everything at our fingertips so it makes for an enjoyable visit. The decor is upscale without the upscale price, This is my favourite spot!

Dear Christopher,

Thank you so much for your review. We are really glad that you started to eat Indian food from our restaurant and you liked it. Lots of people never try because of the myth that Indian food is too spicy. Indian food is not about hot spices, it is about the flavour comes from all those spices which also has medicinal value to our body.

Thank you once again for "adding SPICE to your life". We look forward to see you many many more times to come.

“WOW!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We had dinner here tonight to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. This food is the best Indian food I've had in a very long time. We ordered Dinner for 2 which started with vegetable pakoras, followed by saffron rice, butter chicken, lamb rogan josh, mixed vegetable korma and naan. Everything was fresh, steaming hot and very tasty. The staff were very courteous and attentive and took the time to explain the ingredients in some of the dishes. It was funny: I asked the lady serving us for a dessert menu. She gave me a sort of blank look, left us and returned and said "2 minutes". We were surprised when we were served some kulfi, an Indian mango type of ice cream without the milk/cream. It was very thoughtful. We will definitely be returning in the future.
