I visited with a friend whilst away on a course, very friendly staff and tasty food. The veggie shared platter was good and I enjoyed my chana dhansak.

Made an impromptu visit last night while daughter was performing in choir concert (we watched 1st performance). This restaurant shows how contemporary Indian cuisine should be done. Very efficient service accompanied by beautiful food. Well worth a visit.

it would be around a half hour walk each way. If you wanted a closer Indian, there is a place called Chutneys which is 10 minutes away which I recommend equally to spice lounge.
