Disappointed that they messed up my booking. Initially I had booked online for 4 people but rang up to change it to 8 people on the Sunday before our Saturday night booking. The gentleman I spoke to on the phone assured me that 8 people would be fine and checked a number of times that I wanted to change from... More

I visited the Spice Lounge with family as part of a joint birthday celebration. As we dined early on, all six of us opted for the early bird deal, which offers two courses (poppadoms plus curry), a side of rice or chips, and a drink for just short of £15 per person. As I like to try something new, I... More

This place sits on Friargate one of the nicest parts still left in Derby. We have been a few times and the food quality is very good indeed. Nice staff and service. The place has a warm feel and is perfect to dine in. Spot on.

We went here at the beginning of November with friends. This is a popular restaurant but even so service was good and the food as usual was really good. The nice thing about this place is it isn't as expensive as some of the so called fine dining Indian Restaurants but the quality is just as good. I can't remember... More

We had a party of 17 family and friends celebrating a 21st, 46th and 18th birthday. Food was lovely as always, came out quickly and piping hot. I cannot fault the service in The Spice Lounge, the staff are more than attentive, always coming over checking that all their customers are ok and happy with their meals. Best Indian food... More

Fresh ingredients make this my favourite Indian restaurant. Attentive service but without feeling being interrupted whilst eating.
