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.

We visit THE HOUSE OF SPICE today with family. They provide delicious food with very good service. I recommend everyone to go there with friends and family. It’s the best Indian restaurant in this island.

The tagline of this restaurant claims to offer authentic Indian cuisine, but it is far from the truth. It seems like both the chef and the owner lack any knowledge of what authentic Indian food should taste like. The food they serve is a complete...joke. Looking at the photo, it is impossible to distinguish between the chicken, mutton, and vegetable curry as they all appear to be the same. It seems like they just used the same curry sauce and added lamb and chicken to it. We spent £100 on our meal, which turned out to be a complete waste. If the chef and owner are not from India, they should not market their restaurant as serving Indian food. This is a huge disappointment for those seeking genuine Indian cuisine.More

Nice clean place , good food . Our only complaint is we felt rushed . Planned the night out for my wife’s birthday. Ordered Poppadoms and halfway through the waiter started asking for our mains order . Which makes it awkward while still eating ....Then he come back and pushed the mains plate up against my wife’s plate that she was still eating the poppadoms from . It’s not nice having your main course sat there while still eating the previous. In , ordered and out with in around half hour . Good if I’m a hurry I guess .More
