“Wow! Authentic Indian cuisine!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

So happy this place made it to the island. We had both the curried fish and the curried rice. Both were excellent. The atmosphere is small but nice and the service was impeccable. A nice change from the usual fare on the island and the prices are very reasonable. Nice sized portions as well.

“Indian Surprise in Bradenton Beach”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

My son loves Indian food, so we thought we would try Spice Island while vacationing on Anna Maria Island for his birthday lunch. We were not expecting much. It is a small place on Gulf Drive and has little ambience, but for a beach town in Florida, the food was surprisingly good. The curries were rich and flavorful and the mango ginger grouper was superb. It is not really that cheap, but it is a nice break from burgers and bar food so often found by the beach. Give it a try if you like Indian food.

“Spot on A1”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

That was the best Indian meal I have ever had. The samosas where divine. I had the fish coconut curry simple delicious. The others in the party had Chicken tikka masala and said it was absolutely yummy. Chicken nuggets and fries for our youngest and ate it all. Really is a great place to eat. Rice included in the price. One small downfall glass of wine $4 but it was a very small glass of wine. I so would go back. The best meal we have had since we have been in Florida. If you like Indian food his is the place for you. Meant to add the server asked as how we would like our curry cooked ie mild,medium spicy ! Wonderful
