“Great Food but stay clear on an Ascot Race day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is the best Indian restaurant in the area. Service is quick. Staff are friendly and polite but some could smile a bit more. Food is hot and tasty and portions are a good size. I am always full without starters and sides. Although if you are getting take-away the portions are slightly smaller.

The Indian background music is a bit annoying but quiet enough to ignore.

Food is well priced. Premises is clean. Take-away is pick up only.

Big tip is not to visit on an Ascot Race day unless you've been to the races and are as inebbriated as the other race goers. It gets very busy, boisterous and service is slower.

“Sadly disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

Visited Ascot Spice prior to attending a gig at Jagz. Unfortunately, it was the evening after an Ascot Race day and we had the misfortune of sitting next to a table a 14 drunk obnoxious men.

Service was extremely slow and when the food did arrive, it was bland, luke warm and portions rather on the small side.

I know others rate this restaurant highly so can only assume we picked the wrong evening to visit. However, we will not be back....

“Downhill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

We ate here on Nov 3rd, but I've been a few times before.

On this occaision the service was pretty poor with a surly waiter who plonked things down and had no interest until he asked us to leave to free the table.

The food was tasty but looked a little congealed. Seemed to have gone a little down hill.

Other diners were complaining about cold coffee.

It was ok, so so, could be a lot better, could be a lot worse.

“Great indian food and not too expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

We had just about given up on Indian restaurants locally but decided to give Ascot Spices a go and were very pleasantly surprised. The service was very good, the staff very friendly and welcoming and efficient. The food was very tasty and enjoyable and without paying over the top. I had similar to a very spicy lamb shank and it was delicious - will definitely go back soon.

“Nice Indian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

We pop in on a fairly regular basis as a couple or with the children and friends and always have a decent meal, wine, beer and service, good choice and the duck is always good. Well worth a try dine in or take away.
