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!

Came on a Sunday evening it was 6 courses for £9.99. Really nice food, great friendly staff. Only issue don't assume that change is a tip! I did tip but would have liked my change back to make that choice myself. I would recommend this restaurant

Tonight we have once again visited The Tale Of Spice and the food was up to its usual FIRST CLASS STANDARD, tasty, good size portions and served piping hot. The restaurant is very modern and tables are all laid with fresh white linen cloths, napkins and fresh flowers. The Sunday SIX COURSE meal @ £9.95 per person is excellent value,... More

I have been getting my takeaway here for the last 10+ years and sometimes twice a week. The food is always stunning here and I won't go anywhere else in Trowbridge/Frome/Bradford on Avon.

Popped in on the off chance prior to going to the movies on Friday night. Was shown a table and enjoyed a great meal at a good price. Drinks and food were served promptly and the staff were friendly. At this price it can't be beaten. Good portion sizes as well. We will return as the man said.

the service here is acceptable but the standard of food is below average. I have visited many an indian and standards do vary. Here the food is bland, tasteless and hardly inspiring. I would not recommend this restaurant albeit the phone was constantly rining for take aways. This may be because the standard of other take aways in trowbridge is... More
