“Tasty, homecooked and fresh”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

Yum! We weren't expecting anything beyond the ordinary 'high street Indian' so had a fabulous surprise. Service was well-meaning if a bit pressed (hope this gets sorted out soon!), but the food was great: cooked from scratch with really fresh veg, gorgeous paneer, thoughtful flavouring and clear care for each dish. Freshly baked nan was a particular treat. We weren't drinking (had already been to the pub) so didn't really look at the drinks menu. Spice Lounge may surprise diners looking for chicken tikka masala and chips, but for us, the authentic food was a welcome find at the end of a long day.

“What a disapointment”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

The menu looked wonderful although the place looked dingy. We we're greeted with a cheerful but un experienced waiter, who's wife(?!) was having a personal phone call in the seating area and discussing this with the owner (?!) whilst we we're trying to eat. The food promised to be delicious but was at a disappointingly poor standard. The nann bread was shop bought, and i imagine some of the other 'authentic' ingredients were too. We did not enjoy this meal at all, and were pleased to leave. We would not recommend this restaurant at all.

“Suspicious name change”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

Firstly no slimline tonic, fine I can live with that even though an offer of them going to get it would be welcome. Poppadoms came with a very tired looking onion salad. Guess it was a good couple of days old. Then to top it all, they sold out of cobra. Yes an indian with only spanish beer! (San miguel) i couldnt make this up if i tried. Paid the bill and left before ordering, on way out it seems it has had its card facilities suspended and name change. Enough said!!!

We have been visiting Foz nearly ten years now and we have always had great tasting food and excellent customer service. We love trying new dishes and tasty indian puddings - we are treated like one of the family, thank you Foz and see you again very soon........... can't wait!
