We had a lovely evening for my works leaving meal, they gave us soul use of the restaurant to cater for our party of 27 and offered us a fantastic meal deal with a huge variety of food, the service was great too never had an empty glass :-)
Had a take away from here too and the food was good then, very reasonably priced & cooked to perfection.
Would recommend this place to anyone whether it's just a take away, a family meal or a large event. Will be returning that's for sure. :-)

As Le Spice Merchant is only a few hundred yards from my home, I thought I ought to try it, being a curry fan. For years now I've been having the same curry dish wherever I go, up and down the country, and the quality has varied tremendously. I tried a takeaway from Le Spice two weeks ago and was more than pleasantly surprised; I couldn't believe it, It was probably the best curry I've had, (and it's my local !) The price, also, was better than the other local curry houses that I've tried.
I'm having another takeaway tonight, and next week I'm going to take my family there for an 'eat-in' meal. The staff there are so friendly; nothing seems to be too much trouble for them.
Well done to all at Le Spice Merchant, especially the chef. (Don't leave !)

Please please look elsewhere and do not go here. TERRIBLE FOOD TERRIBLE SERVICE! The waiter was extremely rude and when I expressed my concerns I was told I was wrong and to look at the website due to great reviews. I would advise not to go here and avoid!

Dear Reviewer

Your review is totally concocted and derogatory. As you will recall that, your order was not accepted by us as we were too busy - This was relayed to you by JUST EAT ( I have the proof from ''Just Eat'' who texted you). We are disappointed that after explaining to you in great depth you felt the need to make such comment on here.

We take pride in what we do and we are very very focused to provide an excellent service. Which you can see from our guests' reviews.

We will not accept you comments and please refrain from maligning our business reputation and avoid these kind comments for other present & prospective guests to read.

we vehemently protest your review and we have asked trip advisor to deal with this kind of vedanta. we would have welcomed your comments had we accepted your order and served you with. You grievances should remain with JUST EAT and not with Le spice merchant - As I have mentioned very clearly ''we did not accept the order when it was put through, to avoid disappointment".
