I've been a take-away customer for several years, and although not the cheapest, this restaurant has always delivered consistent quality.

As a restaurant experience, it was a quiet night when I went most recently - service was personal but not intrusive. Food was delicately spiced, flavoursome and authentic - something that cannot be said for their close neighbour on the high street that seems to focus more on bollywood glamour than real food.

This is a lovely restaurant with an extensive menu containing set meal and a la carte options. The welcome and service is excellent and the food tasty and delicious. You can eat here inexpensively and leave full. I've been many times alone and with guests - all have enjoyed Shimla Pink!

Ive been eating at and gettng take aways from Spice Mela/Spice Lounge for near on 20 years. They once were very very very good and it all changed when the ownership changed. We stil go there because I dont like Shimla Pink but I fear they are now cutting corners to keep going. It is our takeaway of choice - we also have a 15% discount card (which I probably wont renew). The curries all seem the same now and the depth of flavour is missing.

Its a shame becase I knew the original owner of this place (he lived in my road in the early 90s when I was a kid) when they set it up after it was an Itatlian restaurant.
