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.

We have eaten at Spice previously and have always had excellent food and service hence we chose Spice to cater for our birthday celebration evening. We wanted to leave a review to say how really good the Spice team was. The food was excellent, service...was first class and the guys tidied up everything at the end. Would highly recommend.More

Went into The Spice Restaurant the other night.  The owner recognized me from previous visits.  I had the Korma curry which was so bland there was hardly any spicy flavour at all. This would be a good beginners curry.  They have loads of dishes with...varying degrees of spiciness.  I love their own recipe West meets East dish.  I found that the staff were all so friendly and helpful I will definitely be going there again. More

We booked on Saturday night at the last minute and were delighted to see so many customers inside. Although the restaurant was full plus a very busy evening for takeaway orders, which are always extremely popular, the service was excellent and the food was impeccable....We decided to eat our favourite starter as always - Crocodile Tears which we recommend everyone to try. Main course - Bhuna salmon and Jalfrezi fish with Naan bread and Pilau rice. Kudos to the waiters, always present at every table and always quick to accommodate every request. A big thank you to the owner Sultan for his kindness and availability, and as always, we look forward to visiting his restaurant again soon.More

On Friday night we went to The Spice restaurant in Virginia Water. We had booked a few days in advance to reserve a table. I remember that we had previously been to this restaurant a few years back and we liked the location very much,...of course also the food otherwise we would not have returned. When we arrived, the reception of the staff was 100% professional, they accompanied us to the table, (in other restaurants it happens that we are shown with the hand where to sit). The restaurant had been renovated in a simple but elegant way without exceeding luxury, air conditioning inside the room, beautiful clientele. We went with the chef's recommendation to try their specialities and we decided to order a portion of: Crocodile Tears, the dish was described to us in detail, a little sceptical we took only one portion to share. I still remember the expression on my partner's face when initially tasting that dish. An explosion of flavours filled our mouth, we immediately decided to order another portion so that we each had our own dish. We were also advised to squeeze a few drops of lemon on the food and still new flavours emerged in our mouth. If that dish had been a painter's canvas and the combination of those flavours had been the colours, surely, we would have seen a beautiful picture. Later we chose to eat Sea Bass, all the ingredients were balanced, no one exceeded the other, all-in a perfect balance like the notes written on a pentagram to form sweet music. We continued to order another speciality from the chef, Chicken Shogondha, accompanied by Nan Bread and Pilau Rice, what to say for those who love chicken I recommend trying it, what surprised us with this dish the quantity of chicken, but above all the size of their pieces. All the dishes were presented in an impeccable way, and it is really true that you eat first with your eyes and then with your mouth. In all this I would also like to mention the waiters, who were very kind and professional, a great chef and certainly the biggest compliments to the owner Sultan who is always present in the room to ensure everything is perfect for his customers and making us happy to have spent a truly pleasant evening at The Spice.More
