“Really rude!”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

I was one of a group of around 90 people who booked for a buffet style meal to celebrate a colleague's retirement. We had not booked the entire restaurant. Whilst my colleagues were making short speeches, the restaurant staff were noisily talking and moving furniture directly in front of the speakers to prepare the only remaining big table for some other customers. The staff were rude, aggressive and inconsiderate. The other diners themselves were very considerate, and told the staff that they felt very uncomfortable interrupting the proceedings. I know we didn't have exclusive use of the venue but I feel that the management of the restaurant showed extremely poor judgement in how they handled things. Even if speeches weren't made, they should have planned their seating bettter so that their only other group wasnt positioned on the middle of such a big party. The food was ok.

“Badly declined in recent months”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

I have been going to seven spices for many years, a testament to its great food. I will not be going again though, as I have now had four consecutively terrible meals. The restaurant previously provided some great trademark dishes which were universally delicious, however recently they have been unrecognisable. Their chili chicken - a superb, hot dish with a rich, shiny sauce - has morphed into a slimy, bland, greasy and unappetising mush. Another of their great dishes- Arabian lamb - was previously a favourite with its tender lamb and creamy sauce, recent incarnations have had a greasy red sauce and fatty, sinewy lamb which was inedible. Their keema rice previously had a perfect blend of tastes, but has recently been soggy and bland. A mild, simple dish which a friend ordered was unbearably hot. Really, really disappointing. Help, I need to find a new place to buy my regular curry!

“The best in Sheffield, Unbeatable!!!!!!”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

What a great and romantic place to visit with your partner!! It has a seperate seating area only for couples where the love begins, the cheerful, romantic atmosphere is one of a kind in 7spices. The starters and mains were wonderful, all served on a trolley sizzling away, the staff were extremely polite and helpful, they even booked us taxis when we wanted them. Overall best place in sheffield and NEED to visit ASAP, cant go wrong!!!!!!!!!

“Food nice but expensive”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Went to this restaurant after an afternoon at Tramlines Festival.
No problem getting a table as not very busy.
Food tasty but feel it is overpriced. Menu for chefs specials very misleading - was told that only first 3 dishes included rice and salad not all speciality dishes as menu suggests.
