I was surprised to find such a good Indian in Selkirk the first time I went to Taste of Spice several years ago for lunch. We have returned several times since and have never found fault. The food and service can stand alongside the best in Dalkeith and Edinburgh.

Very nice Indian, not my favourite Indian in term of the food in the town but a very close contender, overall quality and price they are offer he best sit down Indian meal in the down. No entertainment for the kids so take your own

You might think because it's in a small rural town you shouldn't expect too much but you'll be surprised. All the basics are good, the varieties of rice, side dishes and nan breads in particular deserve a special mention. Main dishes are generous and nicely presented, just avoid the king prawns which are like rubber bullets. Prices are reasonable and all in all, a night out here represents good value. Note the special offer on Thursday nights. It would be nice to see just a couple of traditional (made in-house) Indian desserts instead of those deep frozen ice creams. Look forward to trying again sometime.
