Went for a weekday lunch - rare treat - with Island friends and couldn't be happier with the experience. Nice atmosphere, tasty food, friendly service. Looking forward to going back to try more lunch items, plus dinner (shrimp coconut curry maybe) and breakfast (bananas foster french toast). Already recommending the vegetable stuffed dosa - spicing was just right - and the yummy batura (puffy bread).

We enjoyed a great breakfast at Island Spice. My grandson wanted a fried egg sandwich, which wasn't on the menu. They created a double decker masterpiece for him. My granddaughter and I had stopped in the evening before for dessert. They told her she needed to try the mango smoothies, and made her a sample to try. She loved it so much, she had one for breakfast the next day. My eggs Benedict were great, and so were the hash browns. I'm sure the other meals are equally good.

Island Spice has been opened on Gulf Drive north Bradenton Beach for about the past month and is within easy reach of Longboat Kay, Holmes Beach and Anna Maria. There are not many Indian food places in the area and it has that real curry smell as you walk through the door. Manchester England curry mile, if you know what I mean.
Island Spice is open for breakfast,lunch and dinner and therefore cannot rely on curry so the menu is a mix of American essentials with a local mix with a carry out and delivery service. The place has a cafe atmosphere but is extremely clean and tidy with good service if a little slow since everything seems to be cooked to order but if your on holiday
why rush.
We have been three times since opening with spouse and friends and really enjoyed curry main courses on each visit, you are asked when ordering how hot you require your dish to be. We all enjoyed our meals with clean plates and no complaints.
The curry menu might not be as extensive for the committed but lets go and encourage them to develop it.
All the best to Island Spice.

Nice to have some diversity in taste. We liked the naan and the the tikka masala was average.

Did midweek takeout to try this new restaurant. Samosa starter was yummy. Non veg combo was delicious and enough for lunch tomorrow. If you're use to driving south to Sarasota to get your fix give this place a try. I think you'll like it.
