We were here two years ago and enjoyed a satisfying evening. We were glad to see that they have kept up the quality of the food. The ambiance here is more upscale than some of the other Indian establishments. A bit noisy, but what can...More

Came here on a quiet weekday night. There was a large group in there, and we were warned that our food could take a bit longer than usual to come out - fair enough, and appreciated the warning. When the good did come out, there...More

Our waitress was very helpful in explaining menu items, and worked with the kitchen to provide us with dishes to our liking. Menu is extensive. The stuffed Naan was a great starter.

This is my first and last time at the Spice Jammer. We ordered the vegetable pakoras which simply had the taste of "deep fried", "Kuku Paka" which was boiled chicken breast cut up and placed in a lightly spiced roux which was glutinous and reminded...More

In my ever-continuing search for a great East Indian restaurant here on Vancouver Island, I ventured to Victoria, having found the few in Nanaimo fairly blah...! Spice Jammer Restaurant on Fort Street fitted the brief very well. We enjoyed superb onion bhajis to start followed...More
