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.

Delicious. Good option for vegetarian meals for both Starters and Mains. Tried Pani puri which had the best tamarind flavour in it and order chickpeas with garlic rices which was super tasty. Great service and will recommend Spices and Spirits if in search for a...real authentic Indian cuisine..More

The food at this restaurant is phenomenal. If you're expecting your usual Indian fare, you will probably be a bit surprised. I'm told the food here is more authentic than other Indian restaurants, and so your usual dishes might look or taste a bit different....But either way, they are always delicious! I really like how they're so vegetarian friendly as well. The service here is always great too. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The only negative is that the dishes are a bit pricey, but for a treat every now and then, it's definitely worth it!More

I loved the food, we travelled in a party of 6 people and the restaurant had food that could cater to the needs of all Indian cuisines. Their staff was also very friendly. This place has an amazing ambience which not only is suitable for...a group of friends but family and even corporate parties or events I would say. Highly recommend it to not just adults but also kids, senior citizens.More
