Service here was second to none, we visited tonight, just came back and felt compelled to write a review straight away.
The staff were so attentitive (without being annoying!) Our glasses were never left empty, our drinks were taken upstairs to our table with our poppadoms waiting for us, food was wonderful and large portions, waiters were very friendly with great sense of humour. We were even able to take home our china pots that our ice creams came in!

Would highly recommend, lovely food and lovely service. We will definitely visit again.

Went to enjoy a usually lovely evening on Saturday 10th of August for my husbands birthday, booked a table for 7.15 arrived got table immediately, waited at least 20 mins for them to take our drinks order, then another 5 mins to take our order. Had the usual poppadum and chutney tray, the table opposite, we're there before us and had not had their starters, by 8pm we were getting impatient the table opposite complained to the waiter, 20mins later their main meals started to come out, by now we had been there for 1 hr and 20 mins, still no starter, they came to ask us did we want another drink, we just got up and said a few choice words to the waiter, of which we received no apology for the wait, in all of the time we waited, but all evening the take away meals were coming out thick and fast, last time we ever step a foot in the place, great pity as the food is good

I have eaten here for many years and it has had several iterations of names/owners!

The staff are so friendly and what a mix of cultures all working together. I have yet to have a bad meal here, the staff are alway happy to advise and suggest changes that can be made eg no onions, less chilli/more chilli. Someone who has never eaten curry could eat here and walk away satisfied. There is a good selection of breads & rice to complement your meal.The worst thing you can do here is to not ask!!!

I see regulars there each week which gives assurance that things are good - either as take away or restaurant users. It is usually very busy toward the weekends and you see many people having celebrations eg birthday, retirement, workplace. You can tell by the interaction of the staff if they are dealing with a familiar face or a new customer.

I never worry about taking friends/family here. My relatives from Calgary have searched without success to find something similar in their city and always ask to eat at the Spice Lounge when they are visiting.

Prices are very reasonable as is the cost of drinks. It's a little way outside of Abergavenny (1.5 miles) but in fine weather it's a nice walk (there is a pedestrian shortcut - head up the access road to the Heads of the Valley Road A465 by Waitrose and this footpath brings you out opposite the restaurant cutting nearly half a mile off the walk!) NB Google Maps has the restaurant in the wrong place!! If using mapping navigate to The Cutting which is the road opposite the restaurant.

When I am travelling or working outside of UK I look forward to getting home and going to The Spice Lounge!! It's even open (and very busy) on Christmas Day!

My partner and I love this place and generally eat in or have a take-away from here at least once a month. The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them.Good food, nice ambience, helpful and professional staff. All the meals were very well presented & cooked to our liking, the curry sauces were spot on.
