We are infrequent but nonetheless regular patrons of Spicy World. The owner is always extremely hospitable supported by a friendly staff who provide excellent service. Our dining experience yesterday (22 April 14) was very pleasant and the food wonderful. We both enjoyed King Prawn Butterfly starters and the most DELICIOUS King Prawn Tandoori Bhuna for mains. We have no hesitation in recommending Spicy World to others. (Thank You Spicy)

In London on our honeymoon and keen to experience the renowned Indian cuisine. Staying nearby we happened upon this restaurant. Surprisingly we were seated right at the back of the restaurant squished against a food preparation buffet, despite the place being almost empty. Our waiter was terribly rude, no greeting or pleasantries and this kept up through out our meal.

The food was just acceptable and no where near the standard we are used to in Wollongong, Australia. The killer was the bill at 46 pound covering a starter, 2 curries, rice and naan.

Before we left we witnessed a screaming match complete with extreme language between our waiter and the chef. Just horrible.

Visited here at end of February with a colleague. We had an ordinary chicken curry and a very ordinary fish curry with a few beers and a price tag of £70. The staff were very friendly and polite, but the restaurant has seen better days and there are better places to eat in the streets surrounding as we found out later.

Went with my daughter. The waiter was friendly but the vegetable korma consisted of a pleasant enough sauce with a few lumps of grey potato and about two peas! Would it really have been so hard for them to put in a few decent vegetables?
The bill was ridiculously expensive for what we had.

Met up with an all male group of friends in Victoria for a drink and a curry and decided on Spicy World because of location and the 'owner' coming outside to greet us. The initial experience was ok beers and papadums were good then we ordered and the mains came. The overall quality of food was poor, really nothing special, I have 2 friends that regularly eat madras curry and they couldn’t eat it as it was so spicy (1 medium and 1 mild) the rest of the food was a disappointment. When the bill came that was a surprise, just under £200 for 6 people. I had 2 papadums, the worst fish curry I have ever had, rice, a small naan bread and 2 large bottles of beer for over £30.00. Not good value.
