Used to live in cranbrook, and this was our favourite place to eat (at least twice per week)! Kulfi (?) and butter chicken simply scrumptious! Best naan bread! We've since moved to Winnipeg & yet to find a place that holds a candle. We miss you Spice Hut!

Our family dined at Spice Hut on January 4th, 2017. We arrived at 610 PM intending to have supper before attending a 725 pm movie. We were allowed to choose our own seats because there were just 2 other groups when we arrived. The server came right away to ask if we wanted beverages. We ordered tea and water. After... More

This was our third visit to Spice Hut and I have now tasted about ten items. Each one was delicious. The spices are toasted properly and blended beautifully. Each dish has its own wonderful, deep blend of flavour and richness but the butter chicken is phenomenal and my favourite. The naan is beautifully cooked in a proper tandoor oven and... More

I have traveled far and wide and had many Butter Chicken dishes. Aside from my own ;-) (mine is a variation) this was very authentic and chicken was tender. I like a little spice and medium was good. A little more I think might take away from the flavour of the sauce but I do like some heat too. Fabulous... More

Fabulous food every time. The butter chicken is amazing, so is the naan bread (garlic or plain), the chicken biryani is delicious and it has a nice quiet atmosphere.

My daughter and I both had the combo butter chicken meal. The meal was fantastic. Very nicely spiced, mild/medium the server said medium was fairly hot, so we went with her recommendation. The rice was very good, and the Garlic naan was perfectly made. This was my third time eating here, I will definitely be back again.

It was our first time eating Indian food and asked the waitress what was good?...She said everything which was not much help. Good thing I read TripAdvisor and had some idea what to order. I agree with some other contributors that they could put a little more meat in the serving dish for the price. All in All the food... More

Went for dinner with family (4 adults) on a Sunday evg. We each ordered a dish to share along with rice and Naan. Out of all of the dishes the beef vindaloo was my favourite. We ordered it medium and that is fairly hot. (which I like) We had the Tandoori shrimp... I just thought they were ok. Nothing wrong... More

The service was very good. The restuarant atmosphere would be suitable for any type of visit, ranging from family, couples to business. We had 11 people in our party so a range of food choices was ordered (butter chicken, veggie pakora, naan bread, prawns, Dahl, samosas, vegetable rice, okra, potato/cauliflower, etc.) Each entree came in the same size dish and...
