When thus restaurant first opened it was a breath of fresh air. Nice décor, light, kinda modern. The food was good, although never quite spicy enough. It has some competition in Rye and although being in a prime location seems to have succumbed to the others. Made a return visit after several months and really it wasn't up to it.... More

We popped in on New Years Eve for something to eat, said they had space and when we came back we were the only ones there, which was a bit of a worry. But the food was excellent and the service friendly and good .

Food was very poor and salty mint sauce was awful. My my son and I both had very hot curry which on the menu was listed as mild. The coke had vey little... More

Food is ok .but the portions a bit on the small side. Parking nearby is a nightmare ,so if you are disabled this is a no go.

Our usual Indian restaurant was shut on a Sunday lunchtime so we tried Simply Spice for the first time. We arrived at 1.30 and although there was no one else eating, they were happy to serve us. The food was very good and the price was fair. We would certainly be happy to come again.

On previous visits to Rye, I've been a frequent visitor here but suspect the ownership has changed and as a result, quality has suffered.

We have been using simply spice since we moved here 3 years ago the food is always of high standard and we have tried lots of different meals that we haven't seen in other curry menus and they to are amazing The only bad thing I could say is the actual restaurant isn't very homely and comfy feeling

Where do I start... Firstly on arrival I asked for a Coke with ice and a slice of orange in it if possible the waiter brought me a bottle of warm Coke then I asked for ice once again so he brought me a glass of ice.. Not a hard request I thought but clearly beyond the waiters capabilities. The... More
