The food is excellent; well cooked with fresh herbs and spices and not like some places where it seems they use the same sauce for every dish. The staff are friendly and polite when we've been to the restaurant and we order takeaway from there on a frequent basis - they often remember us. They will also happily cook special dishes on request (I like the vegetable Khofta Bangla which are veggie dumpling type things in a tomato based sauce). The best Indian restaurant I've eaten in both in Jersey and London.

Last minute booking but squeezed us in. Food very good, busy with a good buzz. Easy to access and park. A very good local Indian restaurant.

Easily accessible, this restaurant is adjacent to a multistory car park that's free after 6pm, but inside there is quiet buzz and nice enclosed environment. The food is good and the service excellent. In the best traditions of Indian restaurants.

The restaurant is conveniently located near to the ocean and the Grand Hotel. When I visited it was busy, so it is probably best to book at weekends. Being busy it gave the place a real buzz and a great atmosphere. Don’t be put off that the restaurant is busy, as the service is just first class and the food is served promptly.

We visited during the Tennerfest promotion and this provided the opportunity to try some different dishes. These are apparently recipes that have been in proprietor’s family for over 100 years. We tried a great starter – Bangla Bhel Puree which is spinach, lentils cheese in a puree bread – very tasty indeed.

Throughout the meal the service was excellent and we never waited to order anything or get refill drinks. The waiters we all very friendly and extremely helpful to explain the dishes fully. They really help you find something that is to your taste.

Not to detract from the excellent meal, the highlight was at the end of the meal when we ordered Irish coffees. These where produced to a truly excellent standard with perfect definition between the coffee and cream top. This must be a dying art, as others that we have ordered in Jersey have been more reminiscent of a lava lamp! Check out the photo.

If you enjoy excellent Indian food and traditional good service then Cade Spice is a must.

Great little gem of a restaurant next to our hotel in st helier. Staff were extremely friendly and got into the Christmas spirit by wearing elf and reindeer ears! Crackers on the table were a great way to get the night started. And soon everyone was joining in charades from other tables. Food was well presented in white china dishes. The specialty dishes are worth trying. I had a chicken and keema mixed curry. Naan breads tasted fresh and came out piping hot to the table. The complimentary lychee digestif was a nice touch at the end. Staff were knowledgable and happy to explain the menu and suggest dishes. Definitely worth a visit if you happen to be I'm jersey
