“Great food, really...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Great food, surprising, the setting is not the most romantic or convenient, but the food is really incredible. One of the best places to eat in Abuja, for me is number one. I just wish they would make more effort on the setting itself. One of Abuja musts, definitely if you are a vegetarian.

Thanks!

“Good tasty food in a simple restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

I've visited this restaurant in the evening with business colleagues previously and we returned on my most recent visit to Abuja; it's the only place we went out to eat apart from the Hotel.
The food is tasty with good portions with a good choice. Be prepared for the spicy papadums.
The service was simple and friendly despite two power cuts. The decour and layout is relatively basic however that is fine.
Make sure you take Naira, as they don't take cards. (But they will go out and change $s for you)

“Great food! great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

We have been eating at this restaurant for quite a number of years now, actually since they were located in the ancient city of Kano, we have made it almost a family tradition to eat here every sunday afternoon. Spice foods has always been consistent, the food is great! lovely tasting sauces and desserts and very great value for money. It has a very down to earth family feel-good atmosphere! the staff are well trained and pleasant which is a luxury in these parts, the food is abundant and the free tea/coffee/bread just clinches it. This is by far the best indian restaurant in abuja, i would highly recommend it!

“Was here for meals every second day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Very nice food. being a vegetarian(Vegan) i had very less options of restaurants to be at during my few months stay in Abuja in 2011. i was switching between spice restaurant and wakkis restaurant every alternate days. as there were no much options available. the owner here at spice is most of the time present at the restaurants and manages it himself which adds up to its services being excellent. and as he understood my dietary requirements he was very helpful and so were the staff. the price is reasonable. Awesome place to have meals at.

“Spicy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014 via mobile

Like the name says, the food is spicy and good. Went for the lunch buffet and was pleased. Several choices for veggie lovers. The freshly made hot sauce is outstanding. A cold beer is nice thing to have on hand. Price for the buffet is reasonable.
