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!
For the whole evening our table of 4 were the only customers in the restaurant. They seemed to concentrate on takeaway orders and virtually ignored us for long periods. When we did eventually get served with our meals they were actually very good and enjoyed by all.
We have been going to this restaurant for several years now as the food is good. However on this occasion the owner unilaterally decided to close the restaurant and go home because we were 15 minutes late for our reservation. It was only 9pm! But they had no other customers. I have written to the restaurant but so far received no reply.
Great food and service, We will be back, thank you.
