I've been a regular at Cutler's Spice for 5 years now. The owner Allum is a great host. The food is always amazing. The wine and beer choices complement the food perfectly. The staff are always friendly, knowledgeable on the menu, so if you are stuck, just ask, they will recommend a good dish for you based on your tastes. I can't wait for the restaurant to be open again.

I have been to Cutlers Spice about 50 or more times. there is fantastic range of food to choose from the menu. The staff are very kind and welcoming. The food is absolutely amazing 10/10. The service can be slow but with all respect, it's worth the wait between the starter and the main. That atmosphere of the restaurant is nice, relaxing, clam and enjoyable. Would defiantly recommend.

Went to Cutlers Spice and had a lovely meal. The service was really great and the meal was beautiful- full of flavour, hot on arrival and cooked beautifully. We had lamb dopiaza, pilau rice, a chicken dish off the specials menu and some pishwari naan. Lovely meal and lovely people.

What a shame. We came here this evening to try somewhere new. The place opens 5:30 we arrived at 5:45. Interior is lovely, however the bathrooms are disgraceful. We waited 45 minutes to be served a glass of wine and a cider shandy. They brought the wrong wine and a cider with no lemonade. We ordered food and had still not been served any food by 7:45, 2 hours after arriving! I asked 3 times if we could get a time how long dinner would be with no time given. I got a “2 minutes” which was a long half an hour and still no food. I asked again and got “yes” as the waiter walked away. I could understand if there was an issue HOWEVER; 3 tables of 5+ were seated after us an received their meals. We watched 19 takeaways come out of the kitchen whilst we waited. In the end we apologised and told the waiter we were leaving, and his response was “2 minutes 2 minutes”. Again, we explained we had waited too long and asked 3 times and been given no answer. Instead we went to Viraaj in Woodseats and were seated and brought drinks immediately and fed within half an hour. I think I would still be waiting for my meal at Cutler’s Spice now as I write this review.

This restaurant belongs in the 1980's, its a completely run down former pub with filthy toilets and an out dated dining area The food is basic non authentic Indian food, poor service, waited over 20 minutes for starters. Defo won't be coming back to this place. There are way better actual authentic Indian restaurants in Sheffield. Give this one a miss

We’d booked a table for 8 people at 8 o’clock on New Years Eve. We’d expected it to be busy but we had not expected to wait 45 minutes to be seated and over 2 hours before our main courses arrived. What should have been an enjoyable evening out was utterly spoiled by the endless waiting for food and drinks, aggravated by the fact other tables which had arrived well after us kept being served before us. The serving staff did not seem in the least bothered and the only apology we received was from the manager when we finally lost patience and told him what we thought of the terrible service. The food itself was OK but nothing special and certainly not worth the ridiculously long wait. We won’t be rushing back.

I took my wife and father for lunch there today, unfortunately i cant leave a review because the restaurant was closed when it was supposed to be open. I arrived at 12:20 pm and found all the doors to be locked. I rang up the week before to double check it would be open as the advertised opening time was 12 noon i was informed by a member of staff it would be. I rang up later that day to find out why and was given no explanation. Cant really give any stars as we had to eat elsewhere

I usually love Cutlers however my last visit was appalling, myself and 2 friends visited on a Saturday at 6.30pm. The restaurant wasn't busy, there were lots of empty tables so we were expecting a quick service, drinks and poppodums turned up quickly but it was nearly 1 hour before our actually order was taken. We then waited maybe another 40ish minutes for the starters to arrive, when the mains came the full order wasn't ready so we had to wait for sides and 1 of the mains to be brought to the table. The restaurant itself was absolutely freezing with only a couple of small fan heaters which did nothing, the toilets are always cold but I'm never experienced eating in my coat, by the time we left I couldn't feel my feet. Trying to get the bill after we'd finished was another nightmare, we ended up complaining 3 times about the wait/cold but no-one really seemed to care until we were paying the bill, they knocked 10% off but it didn't make up for the 3 hours we spent in there, totally unacceptable. We weren't the only ones complaining about the service but the wait staff couldn't give a monkeys and just ignored you while they cleared the table. Apparently the issues were down to 1 member of staff being off sick but if the whole place falls apart without 1 person it's not a well run establishment. I will not be returning, which is a shame as I've had plenty of family meals here.

We came with a big family group on Saturday night and 2 of us are vegan. The waiter was very accommodating and came over and went through the menu with us to explain what could be made vegan and clearly knew the menu thoroughly. We ended up with a Vegetable Bhuna and Vegetable Methi with boiled rice, chips and chapati which were all really nice. Highly recommend! :)

Had a meal here while working away. The lambe chops to start were tasty and cooked well. Personally I felt the onion bhaji could have been smaller and lighter as it was far too big (which meant it held too much oil so was greasy) The main pepper based chicken curry dish was tasty with a good depth of flavour. All in all a nice Indian and would return

Without a shadow of a doubt the best curries in Sheffield possibly the best food in Sheffield full stop! We’ve been customers of this family for years way back to new India garden on Chesterfield road and even followed them to Deepa in chezzy but what Allum has done with Cutlers Spice has taken their food and the general dining experience to new heights. We can’t wait for lockdown to be over so that we can come and dine in the restaurant but thank you for keeping the food restaurant quality to eat at home. My missus and I are both key workers and a cutlers take away has brought a little normality to a Friday night during such a trying time for us all. Highly recommended.

We visited to celebrate a family engagement so was a few of us and a toddler. Service was great as always and the younger waiter was especially attentive and couldn’t do enough for us. Food was excellent and we didn’t wait any longer than anyone else. Great food, relaxed atmosphere and lovely staff all made a lovely night out.

Our new Christmas eve tradition is to go to Cutlers, the food has always been great, especially my favorite the spicy fish curry. The service around us did seem to be a little hectic but ours was fine. The only complaint I always have is that the portions are huge as the owners son explained his farther is old school and wants everyone to leave satisfied. We definitely did!

We've been a few times before, but not for a while. Everything was OK, food hot & tasty, service a bit slow & they just shrugged when I complained about the extortionate price for an orange cordial. The place, is looking a bit tired in places.
