“Lovely atmosphere and tasty food”
Reviewed 1 July 2011

Please understand that there is not a lot of Indian food in Florida. We always try to find it when we are traveling. Turmeric Gold was a good experience for us. It is located on a very interesting medieval street within easy walking distance of our B&B. The decor is colorful and pleasant though the seats are a bit close. Evidently there is a special area upstairs as we saw two groups head up there with the admonition that there was a minimum order.

We were there just as the restaurant opened so it was not at all busy. Our service was fairly impersonal but I got good advice about what to order that was not hot. The popodoms and pickles were tasty and the sauces had a range of spiciness that suited both of us. My husband's Balti dish was delicious and my chicken was edible and well spiced for me. We enjoyed our meal.

“Nice place - poor food”
Reviewed 23 June 2011

Nicely decorated in an old half timber building in Spon St with nice atmosphere.
just a shame about the food. Chicken Tikka was in flobby slices and no flavour - surely a must for any Indioan Restaurant to get right. Main courses were all very unexciting but edible. We were expecting much more from the food experience. Disappointing.

“BAD ATTITUDE, RUDE STAFF!!!, AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!!”
Reviewed 20 June 2011

party of 10 for my birthday came here 12th june 2011, was disgusted with the swearing, shouting and rudeness from members of staff, over priced food, we got charged for poppadums, £13 and condiments, :ie pickles charged £8, our bill was £156, we were not asked if we enjoyed our meal or attended to unless called over, extremely rude when asked if they had a medium curry, my reply was ' look on the menu', at the end of the evening we were told we had to move as another party was coming in and when we paid up the waiter dropped the money on the floor and said we short changed him of £10!!, the full amount was there but they told us to leave and started shouting abuse, nice surroundings, nice meals but overpriced and very rude staff, will not be eating there again, bad experience!!!!!.............avoid at all costs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Fantastic food & service!!”
Reviewed 16 June 2011

To start off, the restaurant is in a lovely location. When we entered the restaurant the restaurant manager welcomed us and showed us to a lovely table. We were given a beautiful mango drink with our menus - the menu is very good and explains the method of cooking & ingredients that are used very well. I still wasn't sure what I wanted so I told the restaurant manager my taste - he recommended a dish (Achari Pindi Masala) & WOW! Spot on!!! We ordered a few side dishes, bombay potatoes, onion bhaji etc - all excellent. This is one of the best Indian restaurants I have been to in the UK. Great friendly service & wonderful Indian cuisine.
