Abbey spice offers lovely food, it's such good value especially when they have gourmet night. The staff are very friendly and the food is always served very quickly and piping hot. Definitely recommend this curry house

“Above expectation.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014 via mobile

My wife runs our local curry club where a group of local people join up and visit a local restaurant. We chose the Abby Spice from the reviews on Trip Advisor and 11 of us went this evening. It was agreed by all that the evening was exceptional as the food was delicious and the staff , Lucy and Mohamed in particular were great and very attentive. The food was beautifully presented and enjoyed by all. We will definitely return.

“Best curry in St Albans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

A group of friends and I dined at Abbey Spice last Friday evening and we were very impressed by the friendly atmosphere and the contemporary but comfortable interior.
We were all impressed by our food choices and after eating in a lot of Indian restaurants in the area I have to say this is definitely my favourite.

“Fresh Herbs, Warm Crisp Poppadoms, Excellent! But, give the ice cream a miss”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

It must be me. Three other members of my family were full of praise for the food. "Delicious flavours" (I agreed), "succulent moist Tandoori Chicken" (I agreed). "I thought the lamb was tough, if tasty" (but they disagreed with me).

The service was good, the waiter's honesty about the limited sweets/puddings/afters: "You want one? Really?"

I should have picked up on the cue and given the very old, slightly sour, over-solid pot of ice cream and toffee pieces a miss. "Nice from afar but far from nice" seems to cover it.

We all agreed.

“Really very good indeed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

We recently made our first visit to this restaurant and found it to be a most enjoyable experience. We were made to feel very welcome by all the staff with smiles and good humour backed by attentive service when the restaurant was quite busy.

The decor and place settings are very stylish and we immediately felt comfortable with the surroundings. The menu is wide ranging with lots of interesting specials all carefully marked with the degree of heat to be expected which turned out to be very accurate with the spicy Madras and the medium Rogan Josh. Good sized portions served on hot plates. Pints of draught Cobra completed an excellent meal.

We look forward to returning shortly.
