“Ran out of Petrol - evening saved by House of Spice”
Review of House of Spice

House of Spice
Ranked #11 of 12 Restaurants in Watlington
Cuisines: Indian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Running out of petrol on the way back from Heathrow it could have been a disastrous evening. We came off the motorway looking for fuel, and found none, but found a meal at House of Spice, who looked after us like royalty. Green Flag took over an hour to come out, during which time we enjoyed delicious food and great service (and stayed late so we could finish our meal). Okra especially good, as was the Tandoori Prawn dish. Thank you thank you!

This restaurant was until a few years ago the only Indian food I had ever tried. I was disgusted the first few times o tried other places when my friends were not and realised that I jad been spoiled by the experience of this place! Nothing else compares to place in terms of price range amd type. I have had as good in much posher mpre authentic inner city plac3s but never from a stangard curry house

We live in the town and have used this place consistently for takeaway and eat ins. Service and quality us good.

Recently prices have risen a bit so it is not quite as good value as in the past but still a good early evening out with family and friends.

Until recently, Watlington had 2 Indian restaurants but in a small town like this, there just wasn't enough business for both to survive. They have the advantage of a small car park which is useful if its a rainy evening and you don't wish to run round from the main Watlington car park. We thought the food choice was very good, the waiters were attentive and most important of all, the food tasted good. Our very substantial meal for 4 people cost £90 (including 4 beers but no wine). We considered this to be very reasonable and are happy to recommend this place.
