Very nice restaurant in which we were dealt with superbly by the staff throughout the night. No complaints about the food either as both our starter and main were delicious. Will definitely be back.

My partner and I have been here before a while back and loved it! and having gone on Friday it seems to have somehow gotten even better!! The service from start to finish is friendly and welcoming but never intrusive, the menu is varied but not too big, and the food itself....devine! The flavours in each dish are just out of this world! So fresh! and the portion sizes are prefect! We definitely won't be leaving it so long between visits and would encourage everyone to book now! Thanks Spice Lounge!

This is one of the best Indian restaurants in the UK and perhaps globally. Have eaten excellent Indian cuisine in London, York, and Boston. Highly skilled culinary team at the Spice Lounge. Smooth, tasty sauces. Mixed grill offers plenty of meat and seafood with distinct flavours. Looking forward to returning again and again. Highly recommended.

The menu had a very large selection of dishes to choose from. Also, the food in general was very nice and I would certainly re-visit the Spice Lounge. The customer service was very prompt as well. Finally, the restaurant had a very nice atmosphere and was a very relaxing setting to have a nice meal.

The food as always was very tasty and well presented. However the service really let the place down. The waitress brought our choice of white wine and ice bucket to our table but did not unscrew the bottle top never mind pour the wine. Similarly she brought water and glasses to the table but did not pour it for us. She may have been new but she appeared to be out of her depth. This is the second time I have been disappointed at the poor service at the Spice Lounge if there is a third time I will not be going again.

Staff were harassed and service was rushed when it did happen. Atmosphere was not calming and drinks took ages to get to the table. Staff need to chill and take their time. Some customers seemed to get 'special treatment' by more attentive service, coats taken and also watched by staff to ensure they were happy. We had to keep looking for staff to order more drinks or ask for more food despite being in the middle of the room. Experience was not the best at all despite reading reviews from fellow critics, I felt it was over priced as the experience as a whole was about the same atmosphere as a McDonald's. Food was ok but nothing to give awards over as it had been sitting for a while before it made it to the table. Rice was hard too. Would only go back if I had a money off coupon for 50% off as local takeaways who deliver have better value for money.

Very disappointed with the food. Service was rushed and at one point a plate of food was dropped next to where I was sitting. I didn't make a big deal but the waitress was very matter of fact about it and wasn't interested if it had gone on to my clothes. We were with friends from Carnoustie and they have taken us to their local Indian restaurant ,which is amazing, so we felt very let down. On ordering a Biryani they didn't even advise that there was no requirement to order a side of rice as it is a dish containing rice! Would not rush back even although it is very local to our house.

Excellent atmosphere, service and food. Mains were ready very quick, especially given the size of our party (7), and the waitress joined in on our banter. One recommendation: The Spice indicator on the menu/level of 'heat' of the dishes could be looked at. My dish should have been medium/hot, and I found it to be quite mild. Although, still absolutely delicious. Will definitely be back!

Booking conirmation came through promptly. Attentive and pleasant service for drinks when we arrived. Good range of very tasty food in the self-service buffet, frequently replenished as required. No pressure to vacate seats when we had finished eating. Altogether a very pleasant Sunday lunch at a reasonable price.

Received a warm welcome on arrival and were seated in a nice area of the restaurant. Food was delicious and will definitely be back. A bit of a delay in between the starter and main course but the restaurant was exceptionally busy so that's understandable. Highly recommend.
