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.

After being loyal customers for nearly 4 years now and recommending this establishment to many, we have decided to withdraw our support tonight. £70 for a generally poor and disappointing meal (for two out of the three diners) with a 10% discount. The young waiters...did their best , however the manager did not engage with us at all. He was seen hovering in the background or sat on the sofa texting. customer service and less than average food. We will take our business elsewhere from now on. A real shame as we used to love our visits.More

Delicious meal as an unexpected treat for us. Food was lovely, service great. Menu choices were wide ranging and suited all.

A long awaited return to Moray for a driving familiarisation and to visit some mates from work, after a good year and a bit. Of course, an Indian was on the cards! We booked into Spice Tandoori (Elgin) on a Monday night. An old Church...building which has been converted to operate as a restaurant, it’s fairly spectacular from the outside. Not so much internally however, but comfortable enough. We parked in the River Church Car Park (I believe it’s free all week after 6pm). This was literally across the road, off Greyfriars’ Street. The staff, as always, couldn’t do enough for us. Obviously we dived straight into the Poppadoms (two each), with a Pickle Tray that was impressive! I went to my ‘go-to’, Chicken Pakora to start, which was nice and accompanied by a good Chilli Sauce. For mains, I had the Chicken Chilli Garlic with a Pilau Rice and Garlic Naan Bread. The Curry was full of flavour but just ever so slightly on the hot side. Saying that, I mopped up every last bit! The non-alcoholic Beer on offer was decent - a couple of Becks were a welcomed drink to see me through the meal. Would usually be firing into the Cobras but I was the designated driver that night. Although the place was empty, it was a relaxing atmosphere and we generated a good bit of banter at our table. Costing around £35 per person, it was a quality night back in my old stomping ground!More

Good food and generous portions. The consistency of the poppadums was perhaps a little too porous, but the taste was fine, and the red chutney was a little too sticky. The chicken Madras was as well tasting as it was on the nearby Indian restaurant...Panache. But the atmosphere in the restaurant was too sterile and open for my taste, it would have been better with smaller areas or divided zones rather than a "dining hall" feel, as we had here.More

i work all over Europe and when i am away i like to try various food establishments and i am partial to an Indian curry so whilst working in Elgin i decided to go to this establishment for an evening meal now please bear in...mind i have eaten at least 1 Indian meal a week for the last 23 years and so you can imagine i could be classed as a connoisseur so sat down and looked around the place was spotless staff well presented i ordered some food i love a chicken chat so that was my first order then i ordered a lamb tikka bhuna when they arrived i couldn't believe how well presented they both were and the taste was something else the chicken chat was the best i have ever eaten worldwide and the lamb bhuna was the second best i have ever eaten in my travels so how would i rate this place 110% worth a visit and whenever i know of anyone going up in the area i will certainly tell them to call in for a magnificent curry i will be returning to northern Scotland very soon and i will definitely call back the this place for another Indian it is well worth a visit by the way the best lamb bhuna and the best chicken chat i had eaten before here was a Indian in Eastbourne on the south coast of EnglandMore

Looking to pick up a meal on my way home from a trip to the Western Isles and desired something with a bit of spice. All of the tandoori restaurants in Elgin are of an excellent quality and we go to all of them. Spice...has been a favourite destination for family celebration meals and I ordered a takeaway on this Monday night. Food was perfect - a nicely balance lamb bhuna and simple plain naan. I have to say that I was overwhelmed with the quantity of lamb in my meal and it really hit the mark. Thank you Spice Tandoori!More
