“If Carlsberg did Indian Food......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

I'm a regular to the Spice Den for both Take Away and Sit down (It's got to the extent that they now know my voice on the phone!).
Over the year I've tried all the Indian Resturants in Lowey.... and keep going back to The Spice Den, be it with a group of friands or with the Family.... we all love it.
The Food is excellent, with generous portions (lots of Meat - not just sauce!), Good Service, a Friendly Smile and the head man supports Arsenal!
More than happy to recommend to anyone who enjoys a Good Curry.

“Ordinary”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

The only positive thing I can say about this place is that it was clean. I ordered a dish which should have included lamb chops, but I actually got a dish that included pork ribs. Rest of food was ordinary. Very ordinary. We will not be returning.

“Didn't match expectations”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

Popadums cooked in burnt oil and not able to hear each other due to a rowdy bunch of yobs on the next table (it was only 8pm) when we pointed out to the waiter that they were spoiling things for other diners he just shrugged his shoulders and said that they were regulars.

Food average and have had much better meals at other Indian restaurants in the area.

“The best in Lowestoft”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

Excellent food and very good service complemented a short stay in Lowestoft area. Areas for improvement would be:

1. Improve quality of mango chutney - as very runny.
2. Stair carpet leading to toilets was very tired and needs replacement.
3. Heating system needs overhaul / replacing as stand-alone electric fans don't quite provide the right atmosphere.

Apart from that - highly recommended.
