Always been a favourite of friends and family. After coming back recently we were happy to see that it's still the best, great choice of food, particularly vegetarian dishes.

I had vowed never to go here again after a terrible visit a couple of years ago but seeing it had had a makeover and new staff, I thought I would give it a go. It wasn't busy, but they were,uncharacteristically for an indian, very slow to take the order. I had to remind them that they still hadn't taken... More

We have been eating at Spice Paradise for years as love that the menu and food isn't the standard "British Indian". We have always enjoyed the tastes but there has been the odd occasion when we've waited a long time, something's been missing or the service was a bit lacking. Last time we went (few months ago) we commented to... More

Had a good South Indian food after long time. Most of the Indian restaurants around have north indian menu. This place though, mostly has south indian food items. The starters and thali with kerala rice I had was really tasty. I did not like the renovated look of the place though; it was like an open hall with too many... More

Had a really tasty well presented meal, reasonably priced and staff were very friendly and eager to please, Would definitely return . Ambience is ok as early evening, maybe needs to be more intimate for later or different occasions. Great for vegetarian and gluten free

new name, brighter, and much, much worse. 5 tables in, including us. Asked for popadoms twice before they finally turned up with the main meal. Meal itself had no colour or flavour other than salt and a little bit of chilli. There was nothing fresh on the table, least of all the mushy 'lemon' rice, which was just yellow and... More

I arrange to meet a friend in the city and we decide we want s curry so I look on my Taste card app and see there is somewhere marked New nearby and was added in the last 30 days. It's 50% off food bill. We head off in search of the restaurant only to find it has reopened in... More

You may not know it from looking at the place from outside, but this is aa restaurant that sells the most AMAZING South Indian food. The menu does not have a specific South Indian section, but look closely and there are some true delights to be had. Mysore Bonda and Masala Dhosa. to name but two. One of our group... More
