Yet again a gorgeous meal last night. I tried the aloo tiki chat as a starter which was so fresh and tasty…. I then tried the Kerala fish curry that I saw advertised on FB earlier. It was so good I didn’t want it to...end. We always have such a warm greeting from the friendliest people working here. It just gets better and betterMore

The food was nice but they will not want you to order a pudding if you’re the last table left before 10pm, the menu wasn’t even offered and they started clearing up around us and opened the front door to let cold air in, we...stood our ground and asked for coffees. Very unfriendly staff and they obviously want their diners out as soon as possible so they can close early on a Saturday night. We will not be going again.More

This was our first meal at Ginger and Spices. The food was delicious. Fresh ingredients and lovely flavours. The menu has a very good range of vegetarian and vegan dishes. The prices are very reasonable. The staff are delightful and really helpful. We were impressed...with this restaurant and intend to return soon with friends.More

Myself and 3 others visited on Monday evening and it was absolutely lovely! I tried a new dish I hadn't heard of before, chatinad I think, and I'll definitely be going back to have it again.

I am surprised this place has any “5 star reviews” I trusted these and was greatly disappointed. The food was average, second only to the very bad customer service. Provided email feedback on a takeaway order I had placed, which had 1 nice dish, the...rest were below par on quality. No response to my email. When I telephoned I was met by a guy who has no customer service skills. He told me he had received my email, followed by saying “what did it say?” And then “what “do you want?” Seriously disappointed. Something that had some promise, but ended in the complete opposite. Whoever is giving this place 5 stars, seriously need to get out more.More

We had such high hopes for our meal at Ginger & Spices. Sadly, it did not live up to expectations. While the food was very good, the service was not. We arrived at the correct time and were eventually greeted by the waiter. He looked...at his list and saw we were assigned to a particular table, which appeared to be next to another couple of tables. Instead, however, he led us to the very back of the restaurant, into an empty, closed off area. He said he would seat us there so that we wouldn’t be “squashed”. When we asked why he’d decided we should sit away from all the other diners he again said it would be less “crowded and squashed”. The original table we’d been assigned wasn’t at all crowded, the restaurant is well laid out, so I can only assume that for some reason he didn’t like the look of me, my husband and our teenage daughter and decided we should be hidden away. We were wearing smart clothes, were sober and polite and felt really rather hurt that we were being asked to sit away from all the other diners. We asked if we could sit in the original table & reluctantly he agreed. We were seated at 7.45, by 8pm, no one had asked us if we’d like a drink, taken a food order, or even acknowledged we were there. The table we had insisted on being seated at was right next to the bar, so there’s no way we had been forgotten. Eventually we were able to order poppadoms and drinks, which came reasonably quickly. The cocktails were very good, the poppadoms were crisp and fresh but came with absolutely tiny accompanying chutneys and onion salad, around a tablespoonful of each. We had to be very sparing and eat most of the poppadoms with no accompaniment. We had trouble ordering throughout the entire meal, waiting a long time to be able to order food and more drinks, I don’t know why this happened, like I said, we were at a table right next to the bar but felt we were being ignored, I wonder what the service would have been like if we’d have stayed at the table at the back of the restaurant, no one else was seated there or nearby while we were in the restaurant so had we stayed there we’d have been completely isolated throughout the meal. No ambience or atmosphere at all, just the odd person walking past on their way to the toilets. When the main meal arrived it was very good, although there was not much meat in my Biriyani, the meat it did contain was lovely, very tender. We finished with liqueur coffees which were well made. Our bill for 3 people came to just over £150, when we paid the waiter did not thank us, no one asked if we’d enjoyed our meal, for some unknown reason we felt like we’d somehow offended the waiters etc. I don’t know if this is because we weren’t “regulars”, but we did feel slightly upset by how we’d been treated. We usually go to Shaon in Chislehurst, which, while the decor and surroundings aren’t as exemplary as G&S makes us feel welcome and not like an imposition, we thought we’d maybe try another place because the reviews are so good, but we won’t be going back, which is a shame, because the food is very good, but the service is frankly pretty dreadful.More

We dined here to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary but we do not live in this area so we had to choose based on reviews plus what the restaurant says on its website. Ginger & Spice absolutely lives up to its reviews. Friendly service, elegant,...understated decor - the food is allowed to speak for itself and it is excellent. We have had a lot of Indian food over the years and this was some of the best we have ever tasted.More

Went back after a long break as we have been in Wales during lockdown and Krishna and his team still does not disappoint. The food, ambience, service was second to none. Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff. Krishna - be very...proud of what you have achieved. You totally deserve it. We will definitely be back!!!More

We had dinner here last night (Saturday) and were very pleasantly surprised. The location isn't the best, being next to an unlooked after premises; however, once inside you find yourself in a warm and inviting environment with pretty lighting and welcoming staff. We used to...go to Mountain View but after a couple of disappointing meals there a few years ago, we missed having a great Indian on our 'doorstep'. Thankfully we've now found this one. We both had a prawn starter (one with chilli, one without) which were delicious! Our main courses were also excellent. We shall definitely be returning.. pretty soon I think!More
