“Spice up your life”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

We adore this place. Spice Avenue is the Bayside's best kept culinary secret. After trying this, we have never been back to franchise curry houses like the Sitar. Coming from Glasgow and its famous 'curry lane' in the city's West End. we struggled to find a decent Indian restaurant for 4 years until one day we got lost in Birkdale, and found the Spice Avenue. It's run by a great chef called Naz, and his family all help out front of house. Friendly, pleasant service and the food here is consistently good - which is rare in Brisbane's mid-priced restaurants. It's very child-friendly too. Which is great, as not all of us are bogans who want to take our children to Maccas for a dining experience. Anyone we've taken to this place have all said - wow, how come we've lived here for so long and never known about it? Give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

“Indian for poms!”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

This is the best Indian restaurant I've been to in Australia. This is the closest thing to an 'English Indian' you'll get. Staff are fast and friendly and the food is amazing. You can't go past the chicken on puri and chicken madras!

“Service too slow”
Reviewed September 24, 2011

We used to go here all the time, loved the food, service was always very slow. We complained about it one night and the waiter was extremely rude towards us. Never been back since.
