We enjoyed the food lots, the service was explicate. We would defiantly go again, would have been nice to have music in the back drop during the meal for ambiance.

I am able to compare the Spice Hut in Cranbrook with many a Indian restaurant in Vancouver. The food is always fresh and the service great. Lunch or dinner has always left me satisfied, often having leftovers for lunch the next day.

If you aren't picky over certain aesthetics and care more about the quality and prep that actually goes into your food - I highly suggest you go to the Spice Hut. They marinate their chicken in the sauces, which is also accompanied by a higher quality of chicken than the competing East Indian restaurant in town. You also get a... More

Whenever I visit my son in Cranbrook we always plan a visit to the Spice Hut. Living in Vancouver exposes me to many great East Indian restaurants and this is right up there. A great start is the veggie pakora - always good with extra tamarind sauce. The butter chicken medium is hot but not too hot. Also the chicken... More

Love this place! Second time here and it did not disappoint again! The flavours are awesome and you can have as spicy as you request. Naan bread is also amazing! Busy but service was great!

We had some rice, naan, butter chicken and veggies. It was medium hot, and that is hot! It was tasty but a bit more than we normally pay. The containers were small but the naan bread was big. It was ready in about 20 minutes.

Great place for Indian food. Do not challenge the chef to make it as hot as he can make it you may not be able to eat it all. Pretty much every is good portions are good sized as well and reasonably priced.

I find this place quite interestin especially for Cranbrook which isnt exactly a foodie town. The menu is varied but if you want your basic naan and butter chicken, you won't be disappointed. We share the dishes and ask frequently for recommendations because the variety of dishes will probably surprise you. This isn't small town dining with comprises. Don't let... More

Our first time in Cranbrook and decided on Spice Hut, based on reviews. Don't let the apparent abandoned mall location stop you from trying this place. We ordered a variety of dishes, portions were decent and all of the food was very good. Staff were very attentive. Service was fast. Would go back again.

Thank Kwfont
