They offer you a complimentary Baileys or... More

My last visit to The Spice confirms that this is my favourite curry place after being taken to others by friends. The food is so tasty, great quality, decent size portions and good value. On top of this, the service we receive is always friendly and helpful. They are always willing to run through the menu with us to help... More

I went to the Spice early on a Monday night for a quick bite at 6pm. The waiter offered me a 'Monday night special deal' for £14 I went for it, which was a mistake. Despite reading the instructions carefully, I ended up getting charged a good deal more after the waiter insisted that I had ordered items that fell... More

Love this place. Decided to pop in for a curry after cinema. Saturday night so thought it would be fully booked. But they found us table for two. Food is excellent and staff are very friendly and helpful. Best chicken dupiaza I've found in the area.

Visited the area a few times recently through business with my husband who happens to be a real fan of indian food. Chose this restaurant based on reviews backed by locals during our visit. Small restaurant so very busy but a warm welcome from all the staff and lots of advice on dishes if needed but not pushy at all... More

Not a large restaurant, so book early if you want to get a table on busy nights. Food is always well prepared and if you're not too sure about something the staff will always help you descriptions or suggestions. Altogether a smart, well put together Indian/Bangladeshi restaurant that is probably the best in Tunbridge Wells
