I was recommended this place by a friend; it was a brilliant restaurant and I'll definitly be back.

First of all - the food. I'm quite a curry lover, and I've tried some rough, mediocre and bland Indian restaurants in the past. Some of the stars of our meal were the Peshwari Naan-without a doubt the best I've had in a number of years, we also really enjoyed the Madras. There was lots of flavour, chicken was succulent and not at all tough. Everything felt fresh and was definitely tasty!

Service: we were met by really friendly and attentive (without being pushy/obtrusive) waiters. They were really courteous and helpful - and it was the added touches, such as a complimentary baileys at the end of our meal, and a goodbye handshake and a thank you from our waiter that just give it that added personal touch.

Atmosphere: Quickly the restaurant got full, and had a nice bustling happy atmosphere. There were enough staff that we felt that even though the restaurant was full, we were still being attended to. The place seems newly renovated and is clean and fresh.

Overall, I can't fault the restaurant at all-even topping up our salad for the poppodums when our pot started getting empty--- its a massive recommend to all those curry lovers out there!!

I visited this place once. I must say that the staff was extremely arrogant. I was surprised to see such behaviour after having read some wonderful reviews of this place.

After many years of eating at the Palace Spice's predecessor Lavender Spice for 18 years I was pleased to see it given a complete refit and rebrand to bring it up to date.

The food is as before a good mix of various Indian dishes that will be familiar to people all very well presented with great service.

I don't write reviews often but after attending this restaurant about 5-6 times I just felt the need to share. Some genuinely good foid, very good prices and above all some of the friendliest staff I've ever come across. Well worth a few visits each month and the service is really tipworthy :)
