Very sorry to say our experience of this establishment was far from the best this evening. We tried to ignore a ‘take away’ customer being grilled and humiliated to the point she was nearly in tears. No idea where ‘the customer is always right’ approach...was, though I certainly would not be happy if I was overcharged and was screamed at for questioning it. The female serving was extremely rude, unprofessional and in the ladies face, I’m not surprised someone came in afterwards to complain. In fact, I’m surprised they actually went ahead with the purchase. Totally ruined our evening, the restaurant was very quiet, so every word could be heard. In light of the recent pandemic, I think your staff need to be taught some manners as to keep what customers you do have, as we certainly won’t be rushing back. Atmosphere was tense, not what we needed and could easily have been avoided.More

recently moved to selkirk and this place was highly recommended. We have eaten a lot of indian food over the years and we are pretty severe scorers but this place is frankly brilliant. The food which authentic, tasty, well presented and perfectly cooked with no...gristly bits or chewy bits of meat which makes a change from most. The rice is light and fluffy and the vegetables are fresh and varied. We were frankly stunned and delighted to find this gem on our doorsteps and have since ordered a takeout which was equally good Service was well, ok to good but very polite mainly as they were so busy and I feel they can be forgiven that given how impressed we were overallMore

Very disappointed in the service we received from this Indian last night. I had booked a table 2 weeks previously for a birthday celebration and upon arrival, no table had been booked for us and the restaurant was fully booked! No offer of a takeaway,...or a replacement meal was suggested just simply told ‘sorry, nothing we can do we are full’ which is not acceptable. We travelled for this meal and were very disappointed to leave with nothing.More

This meal was ordered on the just eat app as it appeared to be the most convenient way to order. How wrong can you be. Ordered via the app at 1655, with a predicted delivery of 70-90 minutes. 2 1/2 hours later, called the main...restaurant number as the one given on the order goes straight to voicemail and is totally ignored. Told the meal was on it’s way. 10 minutes later, it arrived. Started dishing out and the most expensive main was missing. Called the restaurant and had to press hard for it to be refunded due to the length of time it would take to redeliver. I also said I’d like the delivery charge refunded. Lots of talk, so let’s see what happens. The starter I ordered was the beef adobo and I have to say, it’s probably the worst form of protein I have ever put in my mouth. I’ve never had a cut of beef that had so much fat and gristle. Probably a sirloin cut. But a really poor one. The main was ordered with a garlic rice. This effectively was redundant as their was nothing to eat it with. We are 10 miles from the restaurant, so logistically more of a challenge. My advice would be, if you order on the app, be close enough to walk in and ask for your order to be corrected. I do not have time for any excuses, or playing the covid card. If you can’t meet the expectations you set, bring in your delivery distances. Considerably.More

Booked in for 4 adults, on a Tuesday teatime. Were met by lovely friendly staff and seated at a nice table. Restaurant has been redecorated since we were last there and is bright and fresh. Menu was extensive, without being confusing, even giving an option...to ask for items not included and chefs will do their best to accommodate requests. Waiter gave us good advice on items we ordered. Our meal was served in good time, everything was so delicious, tasty, hot and plentiful! Didn’t leave a scrap of anything on the plates when we were finished! All in all, a very enjoyable experience. From friendly smiley staff, to great food and service, we will definitely return. Also, restaurant was very covid aware, which made us feel relaxed as everything was so clean and well considered. Top marks!More

First time back in nearly five years. It was good then and I can report that standards have not dropped. Ambiance, friendly staff and delicious food made for a great meal. I would recommend this establishment.

Visited Taste of Spice with my wife while staying overnight in Selkirk. I’ve been to some excellent Indian restaurants in Glasgow and other UK cities and can honestly say that, in our opinion, this is up there with the best. Freshly decorated, attentive staff and...fresh, tasty food. The lamb sashlik was particularly tasty.More

Visited here whilst on holiday 5 adults and 4 kids. The menu was extensive with a few unusual dishes. Ever dish order was so fresh and tasty. The chicken sashlik and balti jalfrezi were so tasty. Even our 4 year old lived the sashlik!! The...little chutney platter was also a lovely touch again so fresh and tasty. However the service from the female waitress was brilliant she is a credit to this establishment, so patient with the kids, helpful and also really funny with her wee comments, we had. Wonderful time. Kids were well catered for even though no kids menu they russled up options for us and they loved the nan breads too. All in all a wonderful evening and the kids (and some adults) were fascinated by the toilets lol! Would visit again if in the area.More

This excellent restaurant is s still a great place to eat, despite Covid, and the staff are friendly and efficient taking great care to observe all the precautions necessitated by the ‘bug’! The menu is a little reduced but you can still ask them to...prepare a dish that you particularly enjoy, even if it isn’t on the menu and if they can, they will prepare and serve it to you. There were 4 of us, and we all had a starter and a main course, we probably didn’t need the starters which were generously portioned, but all of us agreed they were delicious. The main courses were also good sized portions and as always well prepared, cooked and presented and again very tasty and enjoyable, the popadoms and naan were fresh and delicious and came with a tray of small dishes with pickles, chutneys and raita. We had a great evening and we’ll be returning really soon.More
