“Good food but Overpriced and Lousy Service”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

The butter chicken, rice, and garlic naan were all very good. Unfortunately, the service was sadly lacking. The server that sat us was about as enthusiastic as a bowl of crackers....
Our server took nearly 20 minutes to bring us our water with lemon, then she forgot the lemon, then brought two wedges of lemon for three glasses of water?! She didn't come to ask how the meal was and we had to chase her for the bill. She wrote "sorry for the delay" on the bill....don't know why she couldn't have said that in person....
There were four servers for eight tables so it wasn't as if they were overworked!!!

“Sweetgrass Cafe Trochu AB”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

We're over on the Island for a family visit and they ordered 6 full meals for pickup. Everything was amazing. Naan bread bread was made while we waited. If we didnt have so much left over, I'd want to eat there again tonight!

“Many choices”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Our second visit to this restaurant confirmed our first impression; good Indian food and many to choose from. Service was good from a helpful and cheerful server, the view was partially obscured but the inlet was visible, and the decor was appropriate. While the prices may seem a bit high for a lunch, we made it our main meal for the day as the portions were generous, especially the Nan bread. We tried both the medium and mild, they were as advertised, and very tasty. All in all a good eating experience and we will certainly be back.

“Nice Indian food”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Have eaten there twice in the past few weeks...a great addition to Ladysmith's restaurants (there aren't many above the fast food or the cafe level). The service is good, and there's a nice view over the Island Highway and the harbour. I've eaten Indian food a good deal, and the food here tastes pretty authentic to me. You can order it mild, medium, or hot. I went for hot--sometimes in Indian restaurants this takes the roof of your mouth off, but this was bearable. Indian beer is good. Prices reasonable, and the portions are big.

“Spicy - your way”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

The Spice Hut in Ladysmith gives your fresh tasty food at price that is affordable. Best of all they offer mild medium or spicy...not that surprising but you can also choose to add rice or naan bread ( get the garlic naan to die for!!) allowing you more control on your dining experience.
The portions are generous and you can easily share one rice dish or prepare to take home leftovers. The menu is extensive and we have always found the service fast and friendly. Open for lunch and dinner.
