“Best Murg Lababdar that is accompanied by fantastic service”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

I had been craving a Murg (Chicken) Lababdar since arriving back in India and was struggling to find anywhere that did it until I came across Pinch of Spice. I have to say that we were looking for somewhere cheap to eat at the time (100 rupees per person) so was hesitant to pay the 500 rupees (We are backpackers so were looking for a cheaper option), but was glad that we did eat here. For the average travelling you wont worry about the prices, but for the backpackers definitely make at least one visit here to celebrate after seeing the Taj. We were greeted by the friendliest staff who brought us a refresher towel to wash our hands. This was then followed by one of the best Murg Lababdar's I have ever had. The atmosphere was great with lots of locals too. What a great experience.

“Great food and service.”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Had a lovely meal here in a very clean and modern setting. The first thing the waiter did was to put a white tablet on a small dish in front of each of us, then he poured some sort of liquid on to it as we watched and clapped in awe as the tablet grew into a narrow tower. It wasn't until later, after I had handed out hand gel to each of our group, and when the waiter returned to ask if we had finished with the little towers, was it pointed out that they were infact cloths for cleaning our hands before eating!!! What tourists!!! Never mind, the food was first class and they even threw in complimentary puddings! I can thoroughly recommend this place.

“Finally Agra has a decent place to eat”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

I travel to Agra about once year , and Agra's main problem has been , other than the restaurant options at hotels or fast food places like Pizza Hut and McDonald's a lack of good food joints , clean restaurants that serve palatable good quality food , no matter what cuisine , in a good setting . Till now it has been disaster after disaster . This time on my visit to Agra with my wife and friends we were taken to this place by a dear friend. The food, quality , taste and portions certainly did not disappoint . The service was quick and polite. The place is clearly doing well and popular , it was packed and we even had to wait a few minutes to get a table . I just hope they sustain their standards .

“Actually this is pretty good”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

It's was a surprise to learn of such a good quality Indian restaurant in Agra, we were staying at the Bansi Home Stay who recommended this to us, glad we went, it's as good as you will get anywhere, service was tip top and the restaurant was choka block full. Don't over order as the portions are very large, it's not expensive and has not Indian dishes on the menu as well. Highly recommended.
