Very sub standard food and limited choices especially the variety of deserts was appalling. Cleanliness needs to be improved. Staff were ok. Small crowded place in serious need of modernisation. Not worth the price paid at all.Will not be visiting again.

Their food is quite nice and they have quite a good variety. Most of the food are really nice but they are quite pricey

Food is okay. They don't refill empty containers promptly. Staff is not polite and always running around, but not bothered about picking empty plates. £13.99 is expensive for the limited spread it offers.

About 30 of us went here to celebrate a birthday party. Buffet Indian food. Food was below average - cold, cheap meat, cooked in bulk with quantity in mind but not quality. Venue decor is manky, the paint was peeling off some of the walls....More

We took 30 members of our family to this Spice Village buffet and were happy with the quality of food and set up. We all had a good time with tea to finish of the meal. It was good value for money. Would go again.

I visited spice village with friends after reading good reviews. I found the restaurant a bit claustrophobic but the food made up for it. Everything tasted delicious and fresh. I loved the chilli lamb, Nihari and other curries. It doesn't have amazing ambience but the...More
