Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I was passing through and came across an amazing smell to realise it was the curry shop. We attended and was greeted with amazing service and smiles all around. We was seated and given our menus. We asked to take our time and it was...no issue at all. We couldn’t decide what dishes we wanted to go for and came across so many staff that was willing to help with recommendations. Our experience was amazing and to top it off we was given completely starters and drinks at the end. I was very impressed. Will definitely come back.More

This is the best Indian restaurant I’ve ever dined in. The food was top notch, service was excellent, atmosphere was impeccable. Not only was I impressed but the rest of my 7 friends I had gone in with were highly satisfied. To end the night...the owner gave us complimentary drinks, so happy! Definitely recommend :)More

I’ve eaten here a few times and had take away and always found it great . Tonight my takeaway was appalling. Meat was dry, all the dishes seemed to have the same sauce, which were over flavoured with cloves. My paratha was soggy and not...fully cooked. I will t be going backMore

Had a take away Christmas Eve and it was so dry and tasteless. We have eaten in the restaurant many times and always found it to be lovely. Three of the six of us had an upset tummy after, has put us off now. After...spending £86 on a take away you expect a reply from the restaurant, but haven’t heard anything back from them.More

The staff were very attentive and the service was excellent. We had starters and a main course and both were absolutely delicious. All were presented elegantly and would go as far as saying possibly the best curry we’ve had, thank you so much.

This was our first time at this lovely restaurant and it was a really pleasant experience. The menu was quite extensive and I managed to try something I hadn't had before. I particularly liked the way we were treated by the people that served us....The prices were pretty much commensurate with most Indian restaurants these days but certainly worth the quality of the food we sampled. Unfortunately we're not often in this neck of the woods but will visit again if we come back.More

Ordered a takeaway for delivery and when it didn't arrive, they said that I hadn't made an order, but then shortly realised I had. Unfortunately, they didn't have any delivery drivers so I had to collect. They did give us some complimentary food, so I...will give them credit for that. My husband loved his food but me and my friend were disappointed with ours, both our tikka masalas and biryani were spicier than we expected. This place would be great if you enjoy spicy curries.More

I am not happy as the curry I had was terrible. I ask them NOT to put lost of oil in the curry as I have bad blood pressure, and they took no notice with my takeaway. The curry was swimming in oil, and it...tasted like it was out of date and horrible. Never again at that place will I go back, as I had to throw it away.More

First class restaurant in Hastings with a wide venu and delicious food. We ordered from the 'traditional favourites' and a 'chefs special'. Although very different they were both tasty and refreshing. Highly recommended, value for money and generous portions.

Ordered a takeaway tonight. It was delicious! We had a set meal and there was plenty of food. Cooked perfectly and just the right spice level for us! Even my son that doesn't do spice at all enjoyed his curry! Delivery driver was friendly and...on time. Will definitely order from you again.More

I visited Ocean Spice on 3rd June 2023 with my adult son and daughter on a weekend visit to Hastings. I have been eating curry since 1954 so I do feel well qualified to give my opinion of the experience. On arrival, we were greeted...in a very friendly manner by the staff who attended promptly and courteously. We chose our dishes and chatted whilst waiting. The aroma of the food coming from the kitchen promised that it would be an enjoyable experience. When the food arrived, we could tell immediately that we would not be disappointed. Just the look of it made a very favourable impression - it was lovely. Delicious, full flavoured and you could taste the different levels of spice. I have only regret. And that is, I live 95 miles from Hastings and cannot visit as often as I would like. However, as Arnie said: "I'll be back." Jim, Louise & Chris.More
