We went early on a Saturday night and only just managed to get in as most of the restaurant was fully booked, hence I recommend you book we went a month earlier and couldn't get in! We had the poppadoms with mixed chutneys followed by a main course, the chicken jalfraise was wonderful full of flavour with the heat coming... More

Whilst on a trip to Trowbridge my children and I visited this venue and were really happily surprised. After eating too much meat and veg we were dying for something lively... we certainly got it. Great food, good service, and two happy children. Thanks...

Booked a table on New Years Eve and in the end had to ask to be served. Place was fairly full, only two serving and one behind the bar. We waited 40 mins from ordering our main food until it arrived and then sent it back because it was luke warm. Expect the microwave was then brought into action. We... More

When we fancy something different we always use Tale of Spice. We have been few times and the food was always excellent, fresh and very tasty. If you have kids I would suggest to go early as the place gets busy and sometimes can be noisy. Keep up the good work and look after your staff as they do an... More

We decided to book a take away direct from the restaurant's own website rather than through a 3rd party generic one. We googled 'Indian' and 'Trowbridge' and found this one. Very good website, easy to use, can pay with card, and you get an estimated delivery time. The food arrived on time, the quality was excellent, and also at a... More

Saturday night and most things right. Party of 4 at 8 O'Clock, the place was busy and had a good atmosphere. The staff were a bit slow to take our orders but once we ordered the service was good; the food tasty and the price reasonable. The tables are a bit close together but overall we were pleasantly surprised. It's... More

Have reviewed Tale of Spice before, and always rated excellent. Is it still good? Yes it is. The decor is nice, service is good, and the food is excellent. It is especially great value on a Sunday. The Sunday 'buffet' allows you to order almost anything from the normal menu. Papadum with pickle, starter, main with rice and bread, and... More

Absolutely stunning food. Staff and service was fabulous, only a short walk from the premier inn. We ordered the special roshoni chicken Hawaii and the mixed shashlick which were amazing, huge portions so best to have 1 rice between you!
