This is certainly one of the better Indian Restaurants we have visited. We chose two different curres, two differnt naan breads and papadums. The food was very good and to taste with a lovely blend of spices.

The naan was cooked perfectly and very tasty.

The staff were efficient and friendly the only down side is the decor is a bit tired and dated and we were seated close to the fire which was somewhat uncomfortably hot.

I have seen a number of reviews about the Spice Room. We all agree, the food is excellant, staff welcoming and inclusive and service good. The fact that the restaurant also provides a takeaway service impacts in no way on the seated diners. It is interesting to also note that there are many local people dining in or getting takeawaya. Always a good sign.

The excellence of the food is due to the care taken with the selection of ingredients and the authentic manner in which dishes are prepared. This would have to be one of the best Indian restaurants in NZ and I have visited many of them.

The Spice Room is careful to use the best spices in preparing their Indian food. We had Madras chicken which was spicy and full of good flavors, including coconut . Garlic naan bread was tasty and done just right. Meals come with rice, fluffy and light. We were treated with respect and caring. Families are as welcome as couples. Many people collected takeaway meals while we dined. We highly recommend this restaurant as the best Indian in the area.
