Revisited this Indian restaurant last night following a disappointing visit a few months previous, really wish I hadn't bothered now. The service is non existent, the welcome is unwelcoming, you can't get a drink for love nor money and the staff smell. As before we ended up in the Bluebell Inn for dinner which was as usual faultless. Avoid this... More

We had a great meal with family one weekend that we decided to go back a couple of days later to celebrate a Birthday. Fabulous food on both occasions - and would recommend Spice Village - Only downside - one of the staff could improve personal hygiene especially when reaching across the table to serve food. Great experience apart and... More

We bought a sharer meal for 2. Though restaurant was busy we didnt have to wait long for our food to arrive. It was well presented and in the top five for my visits to Indian restaurants. Nice atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff. All in all a nice evening. Would go again.

A very good quality Indian Restaurant spoiled by slow service. This restaurant will take your order, deliver you drinks and leave you hours to wait for your food. It seems they are more interested in serving drinks than getting food onto the table.

Really bad service. Waited 2 hrs for food and left in the end after only having had our starters. Three other tables in a similar position walked out. The food is good but the service is awful. On the whole best avoided...head for the smaller curry house next door.

Only go here if you have several years to kill before you eat. And go with a full stomach because by the time you do actually get to eat, you'll be hungry. Food is okay.
