Three of us dropped in for dinner and were a little short of time, on our way to another event. The staff were very accommodating, efficient and friendly. We really enjoyed the food and will be back to try more of the menu. First impressions were very good.

(consistently a high standard) and all at a reasonable price. The variety and choice of dishes is excellent and the staff can recommend dishes you may not have... More

Food was ok , not outstanding, but the service is not good. The basics of delivery of plates and dishes was very poor to the extent that I had to stop one of the waiters crossing I we in front of me several times. Basic manners.

My son loves Indian food and we went to Spice Lounge for his 10th birthday. We had great food, which was wonderfully aromatic with beautiful fresh ingredients. At the end of the meal, as if by magic, a little birthday cake appeared with candle, music and everything. My son was over the moon. We plan to come again soon.

Our son decided he wanted his birthday dinner to be his first curry - and Spice Lounge did us proud. They advised on what would be most to his taste and got it spot on, recommended delicious meals for us and then surprised with a complimentary birthday cake at the end of the evening. Lovely friendly service as well made... More

It's not always easy being a female business traveller eating alone and I always take a book and my phone to entertain myself and to avoid looking too much like a Norma no mates. But I didn't really need them this evening - the staff were all very helpful, friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was engaged and quite lively,... More

A meal with a friend just before Christmas. Although busy it wasn't packed. Staff were attentive and helpful, especially the girl behind the bar. Food was lovely, I had tapas and was persuaded to have a pudding which was great.

Dear diary, Twas the best of times and the worst of times. After a long day of botched train rides we arrived at the Spice Lounge. Boy was it spicy (with goodness)! Cool. Love, Nate (and Gaylord [not the restaurant in London])

As a curry connoisseur this ranked among the 5 best curries I have had in the UK. Everything fresh, with taste to match.
