Having previously enjoyed a take away from spice bank last year we were looking forward to trying the buffet on a Sunday. It did not live up to our expectations unfortunately. The choices were all pretty much the same chicken curry of different types, the chicken was cooked beautifully in each dish though. The rice was dried out and nearly... More

Very busy, cramped, appeared to be unorganised. Not informed of the hour waiting time on arrival. Table booked prior, which was easy to arrange. However, food was excellent. Allegedly free WiFi but password protected

We ate here mid week. Restaurant wasn't particularly busy. Service was fine but the food was nothing special. The curries were fine but the poppadoms tasted a bit stale, the nan was nothing to rave about and we didn't like the lamb kebab at all.

Ate here on a Saturday evening when the restaurant was very busy. The waiters were very efficient but the food was not the best. Also, they really need to get rid of the table next to the toilet/kitchen doorway - constant banging shut throughout our meal.

The staff are nice in the spice bank and it was not far from the George hotel in Criccieth. We will be going back there sometime next year.
