We eat here a few times a year. Great food. Good service in the restaurant and the best Indian takeaway in the area. Highly recommended and good value for money.

We are local and have eaten here quite often before. They usually stand out from the Indian cuisine competition. Not only in price, they are about 30% more expensive, but also in quality. Today it was a different experience, some dishes were clearly reheated and...More

Description
This chic restaurant in Bucks is one of a small chain of classy Indian restaurants across the south east founded by Bashir Islam. Bashir has been part of the industry for over 30 years and wants you to enjoy yourself. Well, if he insists... This is where the Spice Merchant Group Chef, Vijay Anand, is based, so you get to savour dishes made with his own highly-experienced hands. You can't go wrong if you start with his bataki nazrana - tender tandoori duck and potatoes encased in filo pastry, served with a sweet n' spicy red onion and mango chutney. For a refreshingly different main course order the mirchi ka kekda - peppers stuffed with kerala-style flaked crab meat served with a fabulous febugreek flavoured sauce. Plenty of veggie options and tandoori specials too. The Spice Merchant has won various awards, the latest being an award for the best and innovative restaurant in the South.
