A decent restaurant in Edison. Authentic North Indian food. Not very classy as you would want but once the food is served you are reminded of India. Crowded on weekends as there's a big Indian community who visits the place. Plenty of parking helps.

We were seated promptly. Tables were very close to other table. Felt like no privacy. Prices are very high. Portions were good. Food was blend. Drinks were overpriced. Good thing was service was outstanding. Our server was very attractive and friendly.

Good place to eat Indian Food. Ambiance is good, staff is very helpful. Enjoyed with family. Little expensive then other restaurants but don't mind paying little extra for rest of the things.

I try to go here every week if possible, the food is so fresh and delicious. Buffet on weekends, just love it. The staff is very efficient and friendly. They have a side station where they bring these items their making to your table. Will not be disappointed.

Just 1 mile from Metropark, but hidden on side streets. Definitely worth finding! Three of us went for Saturday lunch. The menu was not available, just the buffet. I am not a big fan of buffets, but this one is exceptional. So many choices put out in limited quantities (so they are always fresh). There is a samosa station, prepared... More

We would return here for the lunch buffet. There are a variety of dishes, vegetarian and meat, as well as some appetizers and sweets. Most are average to good, but all are worth a try, and there was nothing we didn't like. Great to have that variety at your disposal.

Have been to Urban Spice many times. Have taken Indian clients for business occasions and enjoyed the restaurant on social occasions as well. It is simply outstanding. A little pricey for Indian but well worth it. The chats are particularly wonderful. Have enjoyed the lunch buffet once (it was great) but most often ordered from the menu. Service and atmosphere...
