We were driving past on our way home from a meeting in Salisbury and 'Popped' in rather than cook when we got in! OK we had heard that it was good from friends. And it certainly lived up to its reputation. We WILL be going back.

We have been here over a handful of times now and live 8miles away and feel every time the drive is worthwhile. Great tasting food, staff are friendly and the layout is nice. One of the best in and around the area. A must try for indian cuisine lovers

we attended as a large group, and all had the generic poppadum's 2 each these were ok however seemed slightly stale and the mango chutney seemed very watery indeed. The lime pickle on the other hand was really tasty the best I have tried. I ordered the Chucken Jalfrezi which although was really nice I did think was on the... More

I have used this Indian restaurant multiple occasions for both family and friends. I would highly recommend this restaurant due to their friendly staff and incredible food. I will split this review into four sections; Food, Staff, Atmosphere and pricing. Food. The food served at this restaurant is second to none in the local area and in fact the only... More

Order placed easily enough online and a free item was offered, which is about as good as the order got. Food arrived after an hour and 15 mins, when advised on ordering it would be 45 minutes, which since it's a Saturday evening, I can forgive. What was not acceptable however, was that some of the food items arrived stone... More

Went out with the usual group of friends (No wives this time).Arrived a little early but our reserved table was available for use. (much better than standing around at the bar whilst it is cleaned down and re-laid) Very wide selection of choices of starters & main meals arrived at the table in nice hot serving dishes or plates Out...

My first visit to Tale of Spice. I was a bit daunted to find two very large party's already seated. But to my surprise my order was served taken quickly and my food arrived shortly afterwards. Prawn Puree was with made king prawns and they were a little chewy, but that can be a problem with big prawns, Chicken Tikka... More

The food was vile - my meal was supposed to be one of the Chef's Specials but the lamb was tough, gristly and tasted like it had already been cooked several times. Not all of it tasted like lamb. It was swimming in a bowlful of sickly gloopy soup that had nothing else solid in it except a single small... More

Came here with my parents for an evening meal but we have also had takeaways from here. Curries are always excellent, well spiced with good meat & vegetables used. The chicken shaslick is excellent, beautiful pieces of tasty chicken in a spicy marinade. Will return.
