Following the poppadoms I chose the mix starter which was quite tasty followed by Chicken Jalfrezi that turned out to be the poorest I have ever had. It contained chicken, onions, peppers and chilli but there was no kick to it, the spices were distinctly...missing and the pilau rice served with it lacked flavour. The Garlic Nan was acceptable but certainly not the best. The service was very poor and we were waiting a long time between courses. In total it took over 3 hours for the meal to be served. On complaining about the Jalfrezi, the reply was, “No one else has complained about their meal tonight.” This is totally unacceptable so I shall not be visiting again. Most disappointing!More

The food was amazing, it has been a while since i have had a good curry because of the lockdown. I would highly recommend Spicewoods

We have always enjoyed dining in this restaurant but during the current lockdown we have been using the takeaway delivery service. We have often found that Indian takeaways don't travel well. However we were really pleased to find that our favourite dishes from this restaurant...are just as good when delivered to our home. The food is freshly cooked so it takes a little while, but has always been delivered within the promised time. Excellent quality and also generous portion sizes.More

We arrived here as a party of 4 and were the first customers to arrive as we had booked a table just as it was opening. The Man who greeted us was nice and friendly and seated us at the table which was fine. The...waiter then came over to us and took our drinks order and asked if we wanted any popadoms. We asked for 6 and only received 4. Then our drinks arrived shortly after with the water missing. When the waiter came to clear the poppadoms we asked if we could keep the sauces, he mumbled something and then took them away anyway? The main courses came which was some delay, curries first, then 3-4 mins late rice, then 3-4mins later naan. The food i must say was nice. Tasty but definitely overpriced, having eaten at several curry cuisines i can say this was by far the most expensive. I don't mind paying more if it better quality but it was just the same as other places ive been to before, so nothing special. During our visit, we noticed the tables are still quite close together, even though guests are meant to be sitting at least 1m apart, tables are practically back to back, so no attempt has been made to keep customers at a social distance. Also it seemed the waiter was constantly leaning over us to get things. Our bill for 4 cokes, 4 starters, 4 popadoms, 4 rices, 4 curries, and 3 naan, was very steep at £121. I looked at the menu online before booking and noticed inside it seemed more expensive than what was displayed online? I wasn't impressed to pay £3.50 for a diet pepsi, only to realise it comes out a plastic 2l bottle and tasted flat. There was no conversation of the staff, we didn't feel welcome once seated and felt our experience could've been alot better for the prices that we're charged. No check backs either to see how our food was? When asked for our bill we were still waiting somewhat 15 minutes late, and had even contemplated about just walking out. Eventually we headed over to the bar, and pay there, then we noticed we'd been charged extra for poppaoms we didnt even receive. I would go here again and neither would any of my party. FAR FAR too overpriced, with such poor customer service.More

Can’t comment on the food as I never got to try it! I paid £45 for a Groupon voucher yesterday, rang to book a table and everything was fine until I mentioned the voucher, when I was told very abruptly that they didn’t accept them...anymore (even though they’re still live on the app). Reading other reviews, it doesn’t sound as though you’re very well treated if you turn up with a voucher, so we probably had a lucky escape anyway.More

I went for a curry at the spicewoods last week, the service was terrible, the waiter didn’t even look at us when we was talking to him. I won’t be returning there
