First visit to this place as nearby the hotel we are staying in. Nice ambience and within the Holiday villa hotel. Ordered the Hyderabad chicken briyani, naan and Chittnad mutton gravy. The briyani was good and the gravy within the briyani had flavour. Otherwise the...food was just average. The masala tea and the payasam were also average. Ok if you want to try some Indian food at night at a nearby place.More

Visited the restaurant for a change of our usual dinner fare. From the many choices on the menu, the four of us ordered different naan with chicken tikka masala and a palak paneer to share. The food was a little cold when served but taste,...while not spectacular, was pleasant. The paneer was a little too firm from what I am used to. Waiting staff were polite but was hesitant when asked for recommendations. Service was slow considering that there were only three tables dining there on this occasion. Prices were mid-range.More

After six days of eating Malaysian style food and junk we were looking for home style food and we found it at Spice Villa. We ordered the mutton biryani and the chettinad curry along with tandoori and roomali roti. So impatient that we didn't click...and pics and just dived into the food. Amazing and wonderful tastes of Indian comfort food.😋😋😋😋More

We had lunch (Indian cuisine) at Spice Villa located at Holiday Villa. Holiday Villa is next to KSL Hotel & Resorts. Food is tasty and spicy. People don't like too spicy food have to tell when ordering food. Ginger masala tea is very tasty. Fresh...fruit juices also available.More

Visited this restaurant twice with my family while we were in JB and I’ve got to say that their food is really delicious and authentic. The chefs seem to be from India. I would highly recommend the mozzarella cheese naan, Gobi Manchurian, biryani, paneer butter...masala. Their lime juice seems to be freshly squeezed too. It has a good array of vegetarian and non vegetarian options.More

We came here after reading the good reviews and we were not disappointed. We ordered Briyani (chicken, prawn and mutton), Gobi Manchurian and naan. Everything was excellent but special mention goes to the briyani. The briyani was light and flavourful and there was generous servings...of the respective meats. Two complaints though. Firstly, service was slow and we took time to get the waiter's attention on numerous occasions. Secondly, the gulab jamun we ordered had an odd smell and taste. We we informed later that it had not been cooked well. But I'd still highly recommend anyone visiting JB to drop by here, especially for the briyani.More

We visited the restaurant in the late afternoon so it was not crowded. The staff attended to us fairly quickly. The briyani was average but the other dishes were good. The buttermilk is a winner! I would say the prices are expensive as they are...centrally located in JB.More

We were there last Saturday, 8 Sep 2018. We had ordered butter chicken masala, vegetable biryani, gosh palak and garlic naan. The biryani was very fragant and went well with the butter chicken masala. Oh "gosh" palak was unassumingly spicy until the next few bites,...the dish was on the salty side so it compliment well with the garlic naan. We have also tried the mango lassi - a yogurt drink that has a bit of mango-ty sourish taste yet it was very refreshment + it reduced the spiciness that linger in our mouths. Overall highly recommended place for dinner. 😃More

I went to this restaurant twice. During my 2nd visit, I noticed the Thai waitress (I believe) smelling each washed/dried plate. She was holding the plate so close to her nose. She did it for each plate for a good 10 minutes. She stopped doing...so when she saw me notice her. Food is good definitely but hygiene level has to buck up. This has put me off from returning to the restaurant.More

We had the Villa Special Hyderabad Briyani, and my wife and I finish every last bit of the rice and chicken. It was that good! There was only another couple there, though a family of 3 came later. Service was pretty fast and we didn't...have to wait long for our Briyani. The aroma hit us the moment the bowl was placed on our table and we happily scooped up the fragrant rice and tender marinated chicken. Our bill for the Briyani and two drinks came to Rm 42. Will certainly come again to try the other dishesMore

Poor service, they does't care about customer. Order Service is very very bad. They feel once ordered its complete. We have to ask for dishes not served yet. Eg. They serviced Curry but not Naans, have to wait for 15/20 min. I felt they are...very rude.More
