This is the first review I have written on Spice of Life in Lewisham, but not the first time I've had the pleasure to dine there. What strikes me about this restaurant is how utterly reliable it is. It offers tasty, well-presented and moderately-priced dishes on every visit. I've always wondered why Moody hasn't just taken out a bank loan and opened up a larger restaurant. But perhaps he knows best, and felt that having a bigger restaurant would make it difficult to maintain its high culinary standard. With its £12.50 full dinner menu, Spice of Life may even be a better deal than it was five or ten years ago. Two of us chose the offer a few nights ago: we had a fish dish and a more traditional lamb curry for our main courses, shared a wonderful minced lamb starter and had all three vegetable choices offered that evening. Included in the price was a large dish of pilau rice and a piping hot nan bread. It was a wonderful tasty and varied meal for both of us. There was sufficient waiting staff and Moody was present to supervise, explain and just chat as an old friend. Our evening at Spice of Life was a lovely event, in both social and dining terms. I recommend the restaurant to all my friends: it's well worth travelling across London for a meal here, but I'd book in advance. Thanks.
