We had a nice enough dinner here last night. The staff were lovely despite other reviews suggesting other wise and our starters were great. My partners main was grand although we are regulars at Indian restaurants and he said tasted better madras at other restaurants. I ordered a pathia (my fav Indian dish) and what I received was nice but more like a korma, I did bring this to staffs attention who tried to tweek the dish but it still was not hot and sour as a pathia is meant to be and is in other restaurants, it was pleasant but just not want I ordered unfortunately. Staff are the reason I'm giving 4th star and not 3

First time visiting Spice and we were served by the very attentive Bee. Customer service was great, very polite and welcoming. A nice touch was being given two ‘on the house’ shots by Ronnie at the end of the meal, the baby Guinness was delicious! The restaurant itself has ample parking, an outdoor area with heat lamps and the inside is clean with a modern and stylish vibe. Excellent covid measures were in place from sanitising stations to logging contact details in case of a close contact situation. Now for the food review, I love Indian food and Spice certainly didn’t disappoint, every dish was fresh, very tasty and well presented. I had onion bhaji to start followed by buttered chicken with pilau rice and roti. We also sampled the poppadoms and chutneys. The flavours were incredible, beautiful sauces and cooked to perfection! Portion sizes were generous and leftovers boxed up to take home. Spice I will be back to see you again soon!

Just ordered takeaway delivery. Used just eat previously and waited almost 2 hours for delivery. Decided to order by telephone and check delivery time. Delivery charge was £5:50 compared to £3:50 on just eat. Food is more expensive ordering direct than ordering from just eat. Complete rip off! My advice…go somewhere else.

Was really looking forward to this visit as hadnt been in years. Food was good though honestly think other Indian restaurants serve nicer food. Ordered a bottle of Pinot wine & was brought 2 glasses which I honestly felt was just a way of getting more money from us as in the end we ordered 4 glasses in total which was definetly more expensive than a bottle. The service is attentive though not 1 waiter smiled once. We also had to call them to order dessert, not good in an empty restaurant. Dont think I'd rush back. Overall, expensive for ok food but not grat service.

I love Indian food… we have wanted to visit for a while since we seen the beautiful outside area… Arrived as they opened at 5 pm and yes the outdoor dining area really is beautiful. We did not get our food until 5.50 even though lots of take always came and went in that time… We didn’t go for starters even though they were very reasonably priced. I had large glass of wine and my daughter an Appletiser.. My daughter had King Prawn Jalfrezi which had £5 supplement for the King prawn… which was fine, but the prawns were completely over cooked and tasted like bland chicken. The other gripe was mine was Chicken Tikka madras which was very reasonably priced @ £13.95 but I asked for it to be xtra hot and they put a £2.50 supplement on for this???? All in all was a pleasant experience complimented by the beautiful weather. But nothing to make me rush back.

This is my Indian Restaurant of choice in the Antrim & Newtownabbey area. The food is always Nice and Hot and the service from staff is always attentive and pleasant. Never had a bad meal for as long as I can remember.

Took advantage of the “eat out to help out” offer. Was able to get a table last minute which was brilliant. The tables all very clean, menus and forks etc were all pre placed. You could tell the menus had been wiped down prior to opening. Overall the food was of a high quality, spice lives up to its name and gives you a nice kick from the hotter items. I would recommend the malsala chip along with a chicken madras. Enough heat in those two dishes to wake you up. Service overall was very fast, staff very friendly and attentive.

First time in Spice, but it left the best impressions! It's the cutest spot near Belfast International Airport which serves variety of Indian dishes which I am fond of!! The service we received was so amazing and we definitely be back again. A nice friendly host who made us feel welcomed and make great recommendations. The food is absolutely amazing. No doubt in that the best meal we had while in Belfast. Overall very authentic, amazing wines, food and service, warm and welcoming ambience! Highly recommend!!

I had ordered using the online menu. This has not been updated so please be aware prices have gone up and your bill will be significantly higher than you think. Also when ordering anything “chicken tikka” you will be disappointed to find they haven’t taken the time to marinade or cook it properly and it is simply diced chicken in a sauce. Over all you could probably do better elsewhere. This is not authentic and not nice.

Really disappointing first visit to Spice last night. Nothing like other Indians I have been to. The food was fine, not amazing, just fine, but it was the other little things that let it down. Firstly the staff. Oh my goodness they were awful. Seemed to he in a bad mood all night. Not attentive. Came to take away our main dishes once finished and just walked away! No mention of whether we would like anything else, which we did. We tried to get their attention to ask for a dessert menu and teas and coffees several times before they actually came over, before that they just continued walking. There were no little appetisers that we've had in other Indian restaurants, but there was nothing offered here. Overall really disappointing experience and would not return or recommend.

Staff were very nice. Good, varied menu. Food was very nice, my husband had a curry that was not to my taste as unbelievably sweet but he liked it. My curry was delicious. Only 2 slight negatives, the tables and chairs were so packed in that the back of my chair was banging on the chair of the lady sat behind me. They would be better removing a table so people could sit more comfortably. £2.20 for a coke is steep too especially when there is only a measly 200mls in a bottle. Despite that would go again as I did enjoy the food. Thank you

This was our 3rd time eating at Spice, and each time we have tried different menu items. WOW this place never fails to impress, the food is so beautifully spiced and the balance and depths of flavour are the best we have experienced in years. The lovely young lady who took our order and Wesley who looked after us, were as always attentive friendly and true professionals. This is such a great place, we come as often as work allows and recommend it to everyone we know THANK YOU EVERYONE (especially the chef, who only too happily accommodates our no poppy seed requirements)

The best Indian restaurant we have experienced in N Ireland! Arun received us royally at an odd hour of the afternoon for lunch and we were soon tucking into some marvellous fare. "Once Bitten, Forever Smitten" is definitely our memory of this delightful place. No complaints whatsoever; first class dining and service and Arun even surprised us with a little complimentary gift as we were settling the bill. Very happy memories. Thanks for everything!
