I visited the Spice Lounge with a group of 10 friends. Initial thoughts were good with the decor being quite modern and well presented. After being sat I was very quickly put off by pushy waiters, constantly asking if we wanted drinks, more drinks and bigger drinks! The food was very bland and had almost no taste at all, I... More

Visited the spice lounge recently after a recommendation from friends and I was disappointed with the whole experience. The service was ok although a little forceful and abrupt at times. The food was the biggest let down. The curry that I had, which looked very appetising, was completely tasteless and after trying friends meals too these were very much the... More

Business trip with the directors and normally this place is good. Our CFO had chicken Rogan Josh and was unable to come into work for 2 days with upset tummy. Came on 3 hours after eating here and although no one can be certain its likely. Put me off going back.

Went as a party of 4, service was good. we ordered 4 different curry's, which all, I'm disappointed to say, were a bit bland. The sauces were of the same consistency and all tasted artificially sweet. Despite this we had a good night, and the restaurant is obviously popular with the locals.

We have frequented the Spice Lounge since it opened many years ago, The staff are very hard working and certainly look after you - if you want a bit more time to chose just ask for five min's or if you are undecided just ask the staff tell them what you like and don't like and you will be in...

We ate here twice on our recent visit to Norwich. The service was quick and friendly. The food was generally very good - fresh and tasty with the dishes clearly explained on the menu. It is a very popular place and clearly many eating around us were regular visitors. The restaurant is very clean and seating comfortable. Prices were reasonable... More

Visited as a group of 8 from work - just before Christmas on Friday night - managed to fit us in and no wait. Popular place but first time here. Nice decor - not that it matters. Not bad chutney tray and pops to start with a cold Kingfisher :-) Tandori mixed grill and veg curry was v impressive for... More
