Description: The Spice Mill is an innovative Indian fusion restaurant located in the delightful surrounds of Grandholm Village. Built around the original 200 year old Grandholm Mill – one of the tallest buildings in Scotland - and the Lade waterway, the village has a yesteryear charm with cobblestoned streets and period lampposts, and The Spice Mill has a warm atmosphere. Perfect for weddings, corporate events, cosy tête-à-tête meals and business lunches the restaurant has a menu filled with stunning dishes such as the Salmon Tikka cooked in the tandoor; the Butter Green Curry – lamb tossed in butter with burnt spinach and a blend of herbs and spices; and the Chicken Korma Razala cooked in cream and yoghurt with almonds and pistachios.

Reviewed February 11, 2013

We have been getting take always from the spice mill since it opened. There was definitely a time when the food quality suffered, however over the last few months it has definitely improved, probably due to the new management.

“Nothing special.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

The food is nothing to sing about, not that it is necessarily bad. Good for a take away. However the place really lacks an atmosphere. Whenever I have visited it has been less than buzzing, and once we were the only table in the restaraunt which is just awkward and we left hastily. Also notorious for having problems with illegal workers. If you want a standard curry jog on over as they will certainly have a free table, however if you actually want an experience, I would venture elsewhere.

“Good Choice”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

This place has definitely grown on me. The food is a little different in that they have a greater selection of healthier dishes (lower ghee) than most Indian restaurants and some very good vegetarian dishes. The service is good and the staff exceptionally polite. It's a nice venuenwithna modern, clean feel. Parking is immediately available which is a bonus. All in all a very nice dining experience.
