Average Indian. Dips for poppadoms weren't great and curries were mild even when asking for a medium to hot dish. Very long gap between main course and being asked if we wanted dessert as well. Not cheap either. Won't rush back

Have always had a really good food at this restaurant. Last night we enjoyed excellent Vegetable Samosas and Onion Bhaji starters with lovely mango and mint dips. For mains we had a Butter Chicken and a Lamb with Special tikka sauce. The butter chicken was superb and highly recommended, but whilst the Lamb was tender and enjoyable, I thought that... More

Great service and excellent freshly cooked curry. We had chicken Kashmir, lamb masala and lemon fish which were all freshly cooked and served piping hot.

Had an amazing meal here ...trip advisor seems to have the location in the middle of Burgas but it's in the road out of Burgas to Salema ...fantastic food and we eat Indian twice a week ..tried a highly recommended Lagos Indian and it was poor quality in comparison. We would definitely recommend Spice Cottage and will return next visit... More

Easily the best we've had in Algarve. Garlic nan was special. Lovely butter chicken and a lamb rogan josh to die for. So good I'm writing a review. Not something I do lightly. Restaurant is not where is says on here. Outside the village and worth tracking down.

Great food and lovely staff. The place had the perfect mood for our romantic dinner. The prices are what you would expect for delicious indian cuisine. Whatever you eat, I recommend their Mango Sauce.

Genuinely friendly welcome, nice atmosphere, good menu as there was 5 of us in the party with very differing tastes, which they catered for without any problems. Excellent meal with great flavour, even the... More

Had a great meal at the Spice Cottage. You'll have to take the (small) effort to get there, but you will not be let down!
