I had an entirely reasonable dinner. It was nothing special, but the menu had a lot of options. The Saag Daal as a side was sufficiently amazing that I'd happily return to see if I'd merely made a poor choice of main.

Having read the reviews I was looking forward to eating some great flavours and Spice Lounge didn't let me down. The garlic tomato instead of lime pickle was amazing and our sheek kebabs, tikka Masala and garlic Tawa (A dish I have never tried before)...More

Was driving back to Heathrow and had time for dinner. Hunted this place down based on reviews and was not disappointed. Staff was very helpful and the food was delicious. Told our waiter what we liked and they customized meals for us .... DELICIOUS!

This restaurant is highly reviewed and I was looking forward to it but I can only conclude that the residents of Summertown don't get out much. It was OK, nothing more. Largely standard Indian fare but nothing wrong with the food other than smallish portions,...More

Very good Indian in Summertown. Everything is spotlessly clean and the staff are very attentive, even when dining alone. The only quibble I would have is that the side dishes and sundries ( such as delicious naan breads ) are more expensive than other Indian...More

Tried this resturant again hoping for some improvement, sadly nothing to write home about. Service OK but lacks any attention to detail or small points of customer appreciate. Food mixed, some dishes really good and authentic other bland and disappointing. Value for money really disappointing,...More

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.
