About

The owners say:

What you get at Spices is simple: exceptional food, really great prices and service that is second to none. All of the food is cooked from fresh, so arrival time of the food will increase accordingly but definitely worth the wait! When the food arrives, you are never disappointed.

One of the reasons why the restaurant is still here today is because the customers love the food.

This is simply because everything they use is of high quality and freshly made. So you can actually taste the difference in aroma and texture, it will definitely put a spark in your taste buds; just exactly how it should be made.

The restaurant’s chefs specialize in high quality Indian/Bangladeshi cuisine placing more emphasis on quality rather than speed.

As they are very passionate about food, staff believe if a customer has tasted their food once, they can almost guarantee that they'll be back again for more.

To make your dining experience even more affordable, Spices operate a Bring Your Own Drink policy.

You are very welcome to bring your own wine or beer and have it with your meal, excluding soft drinks which the restaurant will provide.

A gem
  10 / 10
Okay this place hasn't got the fancy decor you might find elswhere, but once you've had a taste of what these boys have to offer you understand why. It's all about the food. Go a-la-carte or just tell them what flavours you'd like, and way more often than not they're spot on. Great curry that's really affordable. Go eat.

I think MadIssi is living up to her name.... Mad! This place is a gem of a curry house. If you blink you'll miss it walking down chapel market, and it'll be your loss. The food is great, and if you are stuck what to get then just ask the manager, he's passionate about his food, and could easily spend half your night there telling you about the different flavours that each curry holds in order to find the meal you'd like. The only disappointment is that I cannot eat there every night!

London's Best Kept Secret
  10 / 10
I lived in Islington for 3 years without knowing this place existed before being told about it by a friend. I consider this 3 wasted years of my life. The food is sensational - delicate and fragrant, with some dishes combining 5 different flavours in one mouthful. I recommed the Lamb Rajastani starter followed by the Tok Jal Misti (sp?). Food heaven. The owner is one of the most charismatic and fun people you will meet. I took my parents there twice while they were down in London, and they now request we go back to see him every time they come down. It's BYO and the food is exceptional value.

Truly Awful - One to Avoid
  1 / 10
I made the big mistake of trying this restaurant, for what should have been a pleasurable dining experience.

Big, big mistake.

The starter was congealed (King Prawn Butterfly), and arrived congealed, like a big blob of fat, beached on the plate.

My main course, the so called special,Mix Tok Jal Jul (Balti), was tepid, missing half the ingredients.

When I mentioned this to the manager, I was subjected to a tirade of abuse. The meal was not particularly cheap, the service was outrageous, and humiliating.

Quite frankly there are countless other restaurants in this area, that seem to value custom - the first and last time for me.
