“Good ambiance, great Indian food & yet inexpensive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2009

This is a good new restaurant in Agra. Unlike most other restaurants in Agra which are focused on tourists, this one is away from the tourist areas & mostly caters to the local population. The ambiance & decor is modern, the restaurant is neat, does play soft indian music in background and has polite & prompt service. We tried Indian vegetarian dishes which were nicely cooked with mild spices & had great taste. A vegi meal with starters, soups & maincourse didnt even cost us Rs 1000 ($20-$25). Unlike most restaurants in big indian cities, they do not charge any extra service charges of 10%. I didn't mind paying a good tip to the waiters. Try this restaurant, you won't regret it.

“Best value for money in Agra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2009

Agra's restaurant scene outside of the few top-end hotels is really poor, so I was really happy to find Pinch of Spice on my recent visit. It's Indian cuisine is excellent and the deco is modern and sleek. Service is very good as well, and the prices are very moderate considering the surroundings and the food: dinner for four is some 1000-1300 rupees and you won't be able to finsh all the stuff that they bring to the table.

The menu consists of North Indian (veg and non-veg), continental and Chinese items, but I strongly recommend any visitor to focus on the Indian section: it's of high quality, tasty and of very good value. Continental and Chinese are ok if you are tired of Indian cuisine or just can't handle the spices, but nothing to come here for.

The restaurant doesn't serve beer nor lassi, which was disappointing. I hope they improve on that before I go back to Agra again!

The restaurant is some 300 m east of M.G. road in the northern part of Agra.
