We have been eating here for 20 years. While no dish is outstanding, nothing is ever bad. The staff are attentive and the cooking is consistently of a high standard. Very happy coming here!

School of Spice is a very good Indian restaurant, being vegetarian they are always willing to adapt dishes to suit. Staff are very friendly and the food is excellent, would definitely recommend.

This is the third time I've eaten here good choice menu staff leave you alone which is always a bonus for me as I don't need to be asked every five minutes if everything is ok curry on the mild side for me but asked for mine to be spiced up well worth a visit if your in the area
