“Go to a fast food place instead!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2011

We ordered a takeaway from Spice Island.

After collecting it and bringing it home, we sat down with the food and a movie for a comfortable night in.

The lamb dansak was cold. The saag paneer didnt have paneer in it, they put in clumps of cheddar cheese!! I called up the restaurant and asked them if they put in cheese or actual paneer in their saag paneer. He kindly informed me that they use cheese and not paneer. This must have changed as I have eaten there before and it has always been paneer.

Will not be going back there unless I am desperate and there is no where else open.

They can make this such a good restaurant but they choose to sacrifice quality for ease of life.

I used this place a few times and each time they burnt the onions in the curry sauce, one time they forgot my bhajis too. Only go back because there is very little else in the area and I like curry.
