This is how Art of Spice sees itself: Art Of Spice ~" Where Flavors greet the palate.
Art of Spice is an Eclectic Restaurant specializing in Fine Indian Cuisine. Our menu exemplifies the spirit of diversity by including Mughlai Delicacies, Southern Indian Specialties and Indo-Chinese Fusion. We take great pride in consistently providing a Sophisticated Dining Experience complete with Fine Food, Fine Indian Hospitality and Serene Ambiance.
The perfect balance of classic and modern, Art Of Spice is your premier Bergen County destination to celebrate your special occasions, to conduct business and to spend time among friends and family."
That sums it up! I wouldn't hesitate to try everything on this menu. 7 of us went for dinner and ordered the following appetizers: Aloo Tikki Chaat, Samosas, and Kheema Bombers. Each appetizer was equally as good. For dinner we ordered: Shrimp Schezwan Fried Rice. Curry Chicken, Butter Chicken, Lamb or Goat Vindaloo, Palak Paneer, Malai Kofta.and assorted Indian breads. We ordered every dish with medium spice. The food was absolutely delicious seasoned to perfection. For dessert we had:Gulab Jamun , Ras Malai , Carrot Halva, and Vermicelli Kheer and Indian coffee.
The desserts were excellent. We especially loved the Carrot Halva. I believe whatever you order from this menu will be delicious. You can BYOB as there is no alcohol served. Aside from street parking there is parking in a lot off the street behind the restaurant with access to the restaurant from the lot.

Went for dinner with family and friends last night. was worth every bit of it. the appetizers were good. we asked for medium spicy and it was nice. their selection of chaat is good too. we tried quite a few dishes and infact found all of them tasty enough to warrant further benefits. the portions are of good size and we ended up packing the extra food.
Among the curries, palak paneer should be really tried out. biryani was good, so too the daal items.
The place was not too loud and hence you could enjoy the food in peace.
All in all worth repeating all over

The same two couples I wrote about last Fall in my previous review of this richly decorated storefront space returned for a second visit last evening, Tuesday. Only two other tables were taken in the fairly large dining room. Parking is in the rear or on Main Street in front. We ordered two appetizers, three breads and 4 main courses--2 lamb and 2 chicken. The bill came to a very reasonable $58 per couple, including tip and tax. Since this restaurant is BYOB, we brought our own beer and wine, which always saves money. The best of the breads was the aloo paratha, a flat folded pancake stuffed with potato, spices and peas. The naan was also very good. The best of the entrees was the butter lamb, which doesn't contain much butter, but is marinated, spiced and cooked so that the texture of the meat is buttery and so delicious. We shared everything. The others enjoyed each dish, just as they did on our last visit. We asked that the degree of hotness be "medium" and that was perfect for all of us. Service was quite good, but a bit slow, especially considering how empty the dining room was. Perhaps a bit strange is the fact that this restaurant has an entire page or more of Szechwan dishes available. We have not tried any so far. This place deserves another visit from us.

Went there last week with friends . OMG !!!!! We ordered so many appetizers we couldn't order whole dinners . There is nothing not to like from the service to the decor . Truly a tasty class act . Soft lighting is a plus as well . Very relaxed yet classy environment to dine in . Just go , you'll go again .

We ate here after a long day and were starving. The place is appointed nicely and the food was ok. My biggest complaint was the staff they seemed uninterested and almost bothered by requests sometimes. The place was empty and I can't imagine they had anything better to do. I would give it another shot, everyone has bad days.
