“A very enjoyable impromptu evening out!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We used to go to The Sylhet often.....then we had children. Historically I think the service had been slow and we favoured another local for a time....mostly due to wanting to get the children in/fed/out as quickly as we could!! We came back for a change, and are very very glad we did. We had a lovely evening, made so because the staff were friendly, good with the children and smiley, the menu is good (and there is a children's menu) Amazing starters, good mains and a 5 year old who polished off a Chicken Korma and Rice with incredible speed!!! He has said he wanted to go back there for his birthday meal later in the month.

“Jal-Zala!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Been as a couple and in groups and service always good, price always very reasonable and most importantly the flavours are always exciting. The Jal-Zala in particular, though not for the faint hearted, is absolutely superb. The choice is huge, starters tasty and the naans a good size. All in all an utter pleasure.

“Consistently Good”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I am a regular at this restaurant, because service and food are consistently so good. When they are busy, they still have time for you. The food is no more expensive than many similar restaurants, but is up there with the best in terms of quality and flavour.
This restaurant has an extensive choice of seafood dishes which is a unique selling point. They will cook your dish as you want it...milder, hotter, with/without specific ingredients.
On a Friday and Saturday, it's worth booking and asking for a booth, as things can get crowded around the central tables.

“Good Food & Service”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

I visited Sylhet Spice for the first time on a Saturday evening at 7pm, the restaurant had several other couples already seated and 2-3 other parties also arrived while we were there - so nicely busy. The decor is fairly modern with an interesting water feature and lighting, the toilets were decent and clean. We ordered poppadoms, chicken rezala,prawn bhuna, vegetable side, plain rice and naan. All items were of a good quality, both currys were rich and tasty, everything was served hot, service was pleasant and well timed. Our only complaint was the prawns in my bhuna were a bit hard which gave me the impression they were overcooked, my husbands chicken tasted fine but we have been served better quality at other indian restaurants in the area. Our vegetable side however was one of the best I have tasted, with a really interesting choice of vegetables and lovely sauce. Overall I would visit again but there was noting of outstanding quality that made this meal stand out from the many other indian restaurants in the vicinity.
