“Excellent Curry & very friendly staff”
Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

Walked in off the street to a very warm welcome. They even cooked dhansak for my son his favourite even though it was not on the lunch time menu. Starters and mains (lunch) were second to none. Fresh and very tasty. Our nan breads were light and fluffy but crunchy too just right. My son also scoffed his with a big cheesy grin. We were made very welcome not always the case when you have a child. Defiantly be back for more. PS it's sister restaurant in Fort William is also excellent. One minor gripe I wish they would serve proper coke instead of the dash coke!

Return visit as impressed with previous dining experience. Fantastic Indian Food. I went for the medium curry which was very tasty and not too hot.

“Disappointing food”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

The meal was tasteless and bland. We did not enjoy our meal at all. I ordered chicken bhuna and the sauce was very runny and just tasted of tomato. We will not be returning to this restaurant,

“Our Indian choice in Inverness from now on”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

We decided to head out for lunch on a Sunday a little late so knew that some places would be closed. We happened to stop and look at Spice's menu only to discover they do a terrific deal of 3 courses lunch for £7.95 right up till 4.30pm. We did happen to be the only customers in at this time so service was quick and good. It was a lovely sunny afternoon and they have a great view over the river, we also got the chance to have front row warm seats to see the Rememberance Sunday parade... Our host was very friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed our lunch. It was certainly adequate for this small sum of money. We did choose not to have ice cream or coffee. To us this is just an added gesture but not necessary. I could not believe when I read a previous reviewer wanting money off £7.95 for 3 courses as they did not take the ice cream or coffee... Gosh where else can you get the offer of 3 courses for £7.95? Goodness me I was a bit shocked at this to be honest. When we have been at other Indians in Inverness we have found the flavours for different dishes to be much the same so were happy to have two completely different flavours for our order. We were even give a complimentary drink each on our visit which made it even more special. Great place which we will definately go back to again. The toilets are nice and clean as is the whole restaurant with a great lay out and splendid views.

“"Quick Lunch"”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Saturday lunchtime we thought we would take our 11 year old for a lunchtime set menu curry as he loves indian food we parked the car near the Spice Tandoori Inverness bought a parking ticket for 1 hour thinking that would be long enough sadly not if you are dining at Spice Tandoori. We went straight to the resturant which has lovely view's over the river we were shown to a table there was 1 other couple in the resturant who were about to leave we ordered drinks then waited about 10 minutes for the waiter to come and take our order there is only 5 choice's of curry available on lunchtime menu. our starters arrived quite quickly at that point we were not timing! after removing our empty plates we then waited 30 minutes for the main course to arrive we had to ask how long it would be as our parking ticket was going to expire shortly the curry arrived but no rice we were told it would just be out well it was another 5 minutes with the curry getting cold so by this time we had 5minutes to get back to the car. My husband ate his curry in a hurry then left to go to the car to avoid a parking ticket the waiter came to clear our plates asked if we wanted icecream or coffee which is included in the £7.95 set price i said no as we had to go thinking he would deduct something off the bill but NO we were charged for 3 courses so wont be going back. The curry was average not as good as nearby Jaipur indian resturant where we will be going from now on
