Spice Route - Indian Cuisine is a sublime little restaurant based in Portsmouth’s Southsea, nestled on Palmerston Road within walking distance of Southsea Seafront and Southsea shopping precinct. Spice Route brings you authentic dishes from Bangladesh and the Indian subcontinent, courtesy of a chef with over 10 years experience creating new and innovative dishes. Choose something from the tandoor, some seafood, or some Spice Route specials. The kala bhuna is a popular beef curry, while the chicken jhal tikka is as fiery as they come. Of course there are all the classics to consider, too, as well as a selection of curious vegetarian dishes that go far beyond the norm. Spice Route Indian Cuisine has an unlicensed bar, however, but with a BYO policy diners are welcome to bring their own beer or wine. And there’s no corkage fee!
Have been here several times now and it just gets better. The staff are superb even remembering my daughters and nieces names which is a lovely touch. The food is outstanding and generous portions too. If you are unsure about a dish you are expertly guided by the staff. Thank you Spice route we will see you again soon.
Fantastic food and service. After a small initial confusion with our reservation we were seated within 10 minutes. The restaurant was fully booked and I can see why. Some different dishes on the menu. My husband had a beef dish and it was delicious. Would highly recommend. It’s also a ‘bring your own bottle’ which saved money.
Great food and good service. A little Indian gem in the heart of Southsea. Staff are very attentive and friendly. Hope to visit again very soon.
