“Space Club not Spice Club”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

We found a 20% off voucher in a local flyer for this place and thought we would give it a go.First of all parking was easy, right outside in their car park and plenty of street parking around too. So initial thoughts when walking in:- The decor is not too bad and is not worn or tired looking, but there seems to be acres of space almost too few tables. The tables themselves are huge, and when you are seated in the window and there's only two of you , you seem to be a long way from each other which i'm not sure about. It was a little quiet that night but the mood / ambiance wasn't the best. Now the food:- The first time we visited there (May bank holiday) The food was beautiful, large portioned, especially the side dish of Bombay potatoes. It all tasted really good, i had a chicken and mushroom balti and it was superb to be fair. My wife also said her chicken dish was also very good. We had no problem with the service at all, and all the waiters were polite and talked very good English as far as we were concerned. So overall a good meal, good service and a fair price (especially with the 20 % discount a reasonably good meal out.

Unfortunately the second visit did not go so well (2 weeks later). We had some good news and thought we would celebrate it over a curry. But the food was not so tasty this time, and i had hardly any chicken in my dish, and the sauce was very watery and not as thick as it should be. The egg fried rice had tomatoe chopped up in it i guess for colour, but it did nothing for me when i was expecting rice with egg and peas and maybe a little onion. My wife's meal was "alright" which i took to mean "not alright really" and she did not want to make a fuss. i probably should of complained there and then but thought maybe i was being too critical and paid the bill but thinking i shall look for another curry house to try out locally. Overall i will have to score this place as average, and maybe i will go back another time hoping the food will be as good as the first.

“Curry with flavour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

We used to go to another restaurant for a curry night. The manager moved on and opened this one instead. We tried it and found the food a great improvement. The menu was basically the same but the food tasted so much better.

“What a fantastic restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

We have been going to the Spice Club, Gloucester, regularly, since they opened and we have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and varied. Freshly cooked and delicious. The staff, headed by Jay, are most welcoming and very knowledgable about their menu and great at recommending new ideas. We reckon we will try everything from the menu, just to compare! The prices are very good including the drinks from the bar. They are open most lunchtimes, which is great after a morning shopping etc. The restaurant is about 10 minutes walk from the town. We will be back very soon.

“Great restaurant, Great food, Great staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

We have been to the Spice Club several times and it's fantastic.
The staff are really friendly and are good with the children. They are very good at recommending dishes on the menu and explaining to the children what is in the dish. The food is delicious and very good size portions. We will definitely be going again and would recommend it to anyone.
