About Spice Empire

Just next to Sunderland Minster and steps from Sunderland Empire Theatre and the University of Sunderland city campus, Spice Empire is dishing out some seriously delicious South Indian eats. In addition to the Indian subcontinent’s most popular dishes, Spice Empire also features an extensive wine selection with fine wines from all over the Mediterranean and even further afield. When dining at Spice Empire, it’s always a good idea to start off your meal with one of their amazing appetisers including the oregano chicken, the Apna-style tikka or the onion bhaji, or dive headfirst into tandoori specialities like chicken tikka shashlik or chef specials such as the chingri shim, mirchi piazza or the zafran served with pilau rice. Found along Church Lane in the city centre, Spice Empire is a must-visit for fans of great Indian cuisine.

Really excellent and tasty food. The restaurant wasn't busy and the service was very attentive. Good value for money with the evening set of starter, main, rice/naan and dessert.

Nice atmosphere, good food at a decent price and the service was very good as we were visiting the Empire Theatre so needed to be served so we could leave at a specific time
