We chose Chennai Spice for our evening out because it promised to be different from the usual formula food found in curry houses, and so different it was! I haven't enjoyed Indian cuisine as much since being in southern India last year. Choosing and consuming the southern and Sri Lankan dishes was a real pleasure. Food was fresh as can... More

OK, it's in a sort of High Street - not exactly one of London's hotspots but who cares with a menu like this? I don't think I've ever seen seen such a comprehensive selection of dishes before - Sri Lankan, South Indian, traditional Curry House . . . Chennai Spice has the lot! Our party of four tried all of... More

I have always been impressed by the quality of food here. Had chilli paneer, Muthu vada with onion Rava masala and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Shall surely return for more.

Visited with kids, the palak paneer was merely palak from a can with no spices with bits of paneer. The remaining food was nice however. The children enjoyed the children korma. The veg biiyani was bland and could have done with a sauce or more yogurt (the yogurt portion provided was tiny). The service was poor, but this is understandable... More

In unfashionable Edmonton lies this truly hidden gem. I have visited this restaurant regularly over the years and it always amazes me with it's spectacular food. This is a South Indian restaurant and the food is therefore different from the usual. I could run through dishes I have had on the menu but just try it for yourself. I have... More

In the heart of Lower Edmonton is found a little gem. This roomy well decorated restaurant serves authentic southern Indian and Sri Lankan food. Different types of Dosa's (crepes) that can be stuffed with veg or meat are served here with along with a samba (lentil ) and coconut chutney are delicious and well priced. The curries are great but... More

The masala dosa was lovely and so was all the other dishes we ordered. The price was very reasonable but the service needs some improvements.
