This is my local Indian restaurant and I can't fault it! I am a frequent visitor and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Signature Spice to anyone. I often take visiting family there. Best value is on a Wednesday when they have their banquet nice for little over a tenner - but you need to book early as it fills up! My... More

Went here with 3 other people from my course at university. We ordered multiple dishes, Lamb Kachuri, Chicken Vindaloo, Tandoori Chicken and Chicken Dopiaza with sundries and sides of some rice, naan, saag paneer and bombay aloo. The mango lassis weren't too sweet and tasted fresh. I have to say that the food was excellent, not too oily and not... More

Recently moved to the area and thought I should try out the local, best decision I have ever made. Most amazing curry, would recommend the lamb rogan josh and chicken tikka masala! Have eaten in the restaurant once and service was great and the curry was just as nice as a take away. Don't listen to the bad reviews!!

We waited over an hour for our food and it wasn't even that busy. The food was so sweet that it was hard to eat after a few mouthfuls. Fairly sure that the chicken tikka masala was the same as the butter chicken we ordered as looked and tasted identical. The drinks cost a fortune for soft drinks and it... More

I absolutely love Signature Spice! This is the best Indian restaurant I've been to, and I wouldn't go anywhere else now I've found it. The food is amazing and the staff are lovely, especially the manager who can not do enough for you. They will cater to any taste and nothing is too much trouble. The prices are reasonable and...

I've eaten at Signature on many occasions and it's somewhere I never tire of. Tonight was no exception. Look for 'highly recommend' at the end of the description on the menu and you can't go wrong. In fact, you'll enjoy just about anything you order from the extensive choice. Just one minus is when the place is busy. Be prepared... More

It is said a restaurant kitchen can be judged by its toilets and they are disgusting here! The dishes are small and overprice. Aslo be aware when you are given the bill we were charged £6 over and when pointed out to the waiter it didn't seem a surprise! Would definitely recommend you try elsewhere.
