Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Restaurant's Favourite
Reviewed 23 December 2022 via mobile

We have been eating at this restaurant since it opened and the food and service are first class. Last night was no exception: the restaurant was full and there was a steady stream of take-away. Our food was delivered in a timely way and all...the dishes were outstanding: butter chicken, prawns malabar, eggplant and potato curry, coconut rice and the super yummy garlic naan. The wine list has been expanded and updated but we can't go past the very reasonably priced wines from Clonakilla. Another excellent meal loved by the whole family from grandkids to grandparents. Well done Spice Affair team, Merry Christmas and looking forward to returning in 2023.More

Spice Affair is amazing. The staff are great, the food is incredible. I like my curry hot, but heat is nothing without flavour. 100% best Vindaloo I've had. Tender delicious and a pleasant searing burn.

We keep going back to Spice Affair in Yass because of their genuine Indian food. When we visited tonight we had Goan Beef and also Pistachio Chicken. These are excellent dishes. We are gradually working our way through the menu and will again try something...different next timeMore

The best Indian restaurant in Canberra and worth the drive to Casey. I have multiple allergies and not only are they very knowledgeable and accommodating but they take the time to walk through the menu with you and present multiple options. The staff are incredibly...friendly and the food is beyond delicious. Can't recommend highly enough. We are repeat customers and always will be!More
