I got a delicious chicken curry with rice lunch time special. Great value at £4.95. The chicken was cooked perfectly and the sauce was spicy and tasty. They do a banquet last Sunday of month for £9.95. Going to book in!!

Yet another lovely family takeaway. 2x currys and sides for under £10 is a great offer for that mid - week treat without breaking the bank. Ordered chicken tikka masala and lamb jalfrezi which really complemented each other. Jalfrezi had just the right amount of heat. Portion sizes really good. Will be back again.

Disclaimer: As an Indian and a decent cook, I am biased towards good Indian food. Hence when I eat Indian food during travel, I usually expect less than authentic (since the menu is usually geared towards the delicate palates) and lacks the typical punch associated with Indian spices. Happy to report that Spice did not disappoint. Both my better half... More

The food was really good and price very reasonable. Big portion sizes. Great location!!!. We ordered chicken and cauliflower bhaji along with naan. Everything was tasty and the wait time was hardly 10 minutes. Would recommend to everyone.

Normally don't get an Indian takeaway too often because I don't find them value for money. However Spice doing great midweek offer when I visited last week. Two mains and two sides for £10. Good sized portions good menu choice, really tasty and the staff seem really friendly.
