“Great Meal but very noisy!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

The food was excellent and to us good value, but the acoustics were poor making it very noisy and it is hard to hear the person across the table. We were in the centre of the restaurant, it may be a little quieter on the edges? It was a Saturday evening and the restaurant was full.

We were also under one of the air conditioning units and it got very cold. We asked the waiter to warm it a bit so he switched it off. As both units one at each end work together, it was not long before it was switched on again. We soon paid up and left as it was just too cold.

“The best Indian I've ever been”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Up to now the best Indian restaurant I've ever been. As soon as we got in, they accomodated us at the bar, took us the menu and the drinks. They helped us choosing our dish: they have a long menu with infinite choices.
They took us an appetizer so we could taste it. I didn't know what it was when they proposed it, so they were so kind to offer it for free.
The food was amazing. It was very very tasty and spiced in the best way ever. Not hot spiced to cover the taste, but very well combined.
The dining room with soft lights makes it ideal for couple's dinner.
The price value is very high considering the quality, the service, the environment. Around 20-25 pounds for each person.

“Take Away A Taste of Spice”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

The Spice Gallery at North Petherton is our local take away. We have had numerous meals from them both in the restaurant and take away. The staff are always friendly, courteous and efficient and the food is always good and well presented. Although our order was for five different meals it was ready when we called to collect it. We had free puppodums and accompaniments. We particularly recommend the 'Slay The Dragon' chicken and the lamb dansak.

“Overpriced and underwhelmed”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Nice looking restaurant very modern inside with decent staff. The meal I had was nothing special and the main was very bland but my main complaint is the bill. For three people we paid £85.00 for a pop, starter, main, rice and two drinks of coke each. We went on Friday evening and it was empty this place is way overpriced and they will screw you on the drinks tab, even if its soft drinks. It was empty for a very good reason it was my first and last visit!

“Exceptional take-out, wish we had time to eat in.”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Staying self catering, back late, hot and tired so opted for a take-away, hard to find at first and wish we had taken trouble to freshen up and eat out as restaurant really modern and welcoming. Staff greeted us and went through order and we got free popadoms. Food delicious, chicken so tender, rice very tasty and portions generous, we really only needed 2 for the three of us. Naan was a bit rubbery by the time we got back to the cottage but made up for by the rest of the meal. About £45 for 2 starters, 3 mains, 3 rice dishes & naan. Not bad for the standard.
