“A jewel!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

This wonderful little restaurant was an unexpected treat. I spent a week in the lovely Burford for Royal International Air Tattoo and stumbled upon Spice Lounge during an evening stroll. Went in for dinner and very glad I did. Returned twice, once with group of eight; all were effusive in their praise. Restaurant is tidy and a bit upscale with fresh cut flowers and white linen. Staff is skilled, outgoing and efficient. Good selection on the menu, and everything coming out of the kitchen is delicious (personal favorite is Kurai lamb - just the right herbs and dash of heat). I'm one of those with 3+ million miles of international travel under my belt, and don't come across a jewel like this often enough. A keeper!

“Bloody lovely”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

I really enjoyed this little gem. The staff are quick and friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them.
There are some dishes I've never tried before so I was happy to give these dishes a go and I'm glad I did.
As for the prices they were cheap for this area.
Tip- try the lemon fried rice!

“Definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

The food was delicious & we didn't leave feeling bloated like we have done eating at other Asian restaurants. I like the fact that the menu wasn't too big & the food all looked lovely. The staff were friendly too. I would recommend a visit to the Spice rooms

“Food average at best, staff very pleasant”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Have eaten here a few times and each time the food has only been average, though the service is always friendly
The food is just bland, nan bread had very little keema inside, curry not very tasty at all and it tries to be upmarket but the food is nowhere near the quality of an upmarket restaurant in London
As far as Indian restaurants in the area, the ones in Stow and Moreton have better food and also slightly cheaper
Staff very pleasant always helps
