Have eaten here a few times and on the whole, the food has been good. Unfortunately dropped in this evening at 10.10pm, were seated and drinks order taken promptly by one member of staff. Shortly after a female waitress asked if we were ready to...order. As only had a minute or so to look menu, we asked for a few more minutes. We received a very rude reply to tell us the kitchen closed at 11, implying we needed to hurry up. We were then left waiting for 20mins for someone to return and take our order. still waiting, we decided to leave as were not impressed and did not want to feel rushed. To the manager/owner's credit, he was apologetic and wouldn't take payment for the 2 drinks. We shall return but the female waitress needs a good talking to as her attitude was terrible.More

Terrible at its best! Thinking being in centre of town this place would be great with the family before heading out for drinks. Big mistake, one member of staff was rude, the decor of this place is just awful there’s no atmosphere & now the...food. It’s was terrible chicken tikka mossala only tasted of coconut which is odd, king prawn Jalfrezi the prawns where like rubber (over cooked) & the sauce was watery & tasteless. If you like cheap cheerful curry this place is the place to go. Run down restaurant, cheap quality food & rude staff!More

I ordered a meal by phone. It was delivered earlier than expected which was fine. The food looked good but sadly the prawn pathia I ordered was way too hot. I chose it because it had 1 chilli on the menu. My husband says I...am a wimp when it comes to curry but when he tried the pathia he agreed it was as hot as his jhall freize which was pretty hot for a 2 chilli dish. Sorry to score this meal so low but after 3 mouthfuls my mouth was sore and tears were streaming down my face. I couldn't eat any more.More

Found this lovely restaurant whilst in petersfield for the evening. Very extensive menu so much choice! Lovely friendly staff. Food was very good, best peshwari naan bread I’d ever had! Everyone enjoyed their mains. Loved their little touches which made our evening

Husband and I ate out here after a recommendation by a a shop worker in Petersfield. ( We were on a holiday in the area) We decided to book a table which was very straightforward. Being of a certain age the lighting a little difficult...to read the menu, however I opted for Butter chicken and my husband had the Garlic chilli chicken. Mine was as you would expect exceptionally mild and creamy, his was definitely flavoursome. Overall the food was good and the staff are very attentive.More

Had a very nice takeaway from here, very good service and although not the best Indian takeaway I’ve had, it is well above the average standard and we enjoyed every dish. Will definitely choose here again when next i the area. Staff very friendly and...professional and seem well suited to what is a very nice restaurant with loads of character. Recommended.More

What a fantastic meal. All the food was superb, I had a lamb shank dupiaza that was exceptional. My wife had a vegetable vindaloo and our son had chicken tikka, which they both enjoyed too. And the service was first class. We couldn't have wanted...for more, and will definitely return soon.More

Super easy and covid friendly. Ordered the most delicious food and the staff were great, considering how busy the phones were - very small waiting time on collection and even a cheeky beer thrown in too! The main reason for writing this post is the...keema naan. Unbelievable. Guys, don’t change the recipe.More

We chose their set meal for two at £26.95 and adding an extra side so a total of around £30. The order was at 6.30 on a Wednesday and the meal was delivered on time at around the 30 minutes time advised. Card payment taken...over the phone when ordering - good for Covid safety. Our choice of mains was for a Chicken Passanda and a Fish Nowab (£1 extra) with three sides, two rice and two cans of drink. Quality was excellent, really tasty and all hot (temperature); portions were all generous - so much so that we had enough left over for dinner the next day so brilliant value for money!! This was very welcome as over the lockdown we have had two indifferent takeaways from the Malabon which has been our local favourite Indian for eat-in pre-lockdown. We previously reviewed an eat-in meal in February 2020 giving it 4 stars with four suggestions for further improvement. One recommendation was to improve from a FSA Hygiene Rating of 4, done in March 2019 to a top rating of 5. A 4 is acceptable but with their three Petersfield competitors then all earning a 5 that puts the Spice Lounge at a disadvantage. Their then-hoped-for new review is still awaited. A further suggestion was to respond to more of their Trip Advisor reviews, "good or bad", but that doesn't seem to have happened. All that said it is good now to give 5 stars for their takeaway and we will go back for an eat-in once lockdown restrictions are eased.More
