Tasty meal
This is my favourite takeaway and is usually excellent. Last nights meal was good but slightly below par on the chicken tawa. It seemed to lack the flavour it usually has.
- Amanda Heydon

Another enjoyable meal!
It's been a while since I last visited the Marina Spice Lounge due to work commitments. Once again they did not disappoint - very enjoyable food prepared promptly and at a very reasonable price. And, being a vegetarian, I particularly approve of their menu which offers almost all their dishes in a vegetarian option.

Extremely late
Food was excellent but the order was over an hour late. Rang the restaurant twice and the fella was very nice and apologetic and gave us a small discount but because the food arrived so late I didn’t enjoy it, too hungry and too tired.
- Jane Edwards

I always come back
I have tried other Indian takaways but I always come back to Marina Spice for their quality, service and value.
- Stephen Hayward

Another excellent meal. Chicken dansak sauce was delicious and just the right heat. Samosas and onion bhaji were hot and crispy. Good size portions

Second visit...
... and still happy. This time I bought food for my wife too and she agreed that it was tasty and well prepared.
- Martin Bradford

top quality curry
As always food very tasty and great value.
- Stephen Hayward

Very enjoyable meal at a decent price...
I discovered the Marina Spice Lounge quite by chance and decided to give them a try as a takeaway - I was not disappointed. I'm a vegetarian and the range for me at most Indian restaurants is rather limited - but the Spice Lounge offers almost all their recipes as a vegetarian option. The food was good, portions generous and service excellent - we shall be going back in the near future.
- Martin Bradford

Truly tasty
Marina Spice Lounge produces dishes that I imagine I might well be served if I went to India – quite unlike the usual English Indian Restaurant fare. And they do Kormas and Tikka Masalas in a really well too: identifiably the same dishes, but different too.
- David Lewis

Let down
Ordered for it to be delivered 8.15-8.30 pm so I would be in from work on a Friday night to get a message from my husband it's been delivered at 7pm. I got the message at 8 as my phone is switched off at work he obviously ate his as it would have been awful by the time I'm in, so I called and complained my food was not even luke warm when I got to it which wouldn't have been the case if It came when we had stated. I mean why bother asking if you will just deliver when you want to. Also second time they have sent the wrong rice and the pashwari naan is always soggy and half cold on arrival, losing faith in this company a D don't think I'll be ordering again of the next time is as bad.
- Georgina Rutter

Delicious curries
Always well prepared delicious food, delivered promptly. Very good service.
- Stephen Hayward

Valentine take away
Recommended by my parents and their recommendation did not disappoint. We had a take away. We only ordered one main and I still have some left for lunch today. Yummy food! We had to wait slightly on pick up for food but it was valentines night and the restaurant was fairly busy so I could understand that. We will defiantly be booking a table in future

Great food and great service!
- Laura Rackley

Best curry in Hemel so far
This isn't a very authentic food, and yes you can get much better curry in London (and, I hear, Luton), but in the blandness of Hemel's offerings Marina beats its local rivals hands down. Of all the food my family have had so far, the only one I didn't enjoy was tarka dal - made with red lentils, it was mushy and sloppy (and not very garlicky). Everything else we've tried has been really nice. Ordered takeaway from them a number of times and service has always been good. The only problems I've ever experienced were with the Kukd website.. and app, which on one occasion failed to register my order and gave no error warning!
- F Browne

Wonderful food
We use this restaurant regularly for dine in and more often take away. The food is always extremely good, well prepared, tasty and good sized portions. We have never had a bad meal. Highly recommended
- Angela Whitehead

First time
Lovely, best indian food I've ever had, will definitely go again.
- Lewis Dodd

Well pleased.
Fast delivery, always great, tasty food
- Stephen Hayward

Delivered too early
Food very good, Dansak was very greasy and a little too sweet
- Michael Byrne

Just didn't work for me
I ordered via KUKD and left it the 30 minutes before attending. Got there, greeted very politely, only to stand there for 5 minutes with them sorting through bits of paper, to be told they had not received an order. So I had to relay the order to them and then they would start cooking it, not before being told it was £18 instead of £14 that I was quoted online. To be fair they did it for the £14. Told another 20 minutes was actually 35 minutes of sitting waiting for my families dinner. I've eaten there more than 10 times and the food is good, but will probably just phone the order in future and avoid this website. Shame as I love the idea.
- Jason Ward

Best curry in hemel
Totally recommend the ceylon
- sam prochnik

Very average Indian restaurant in a nice setting
Ordered a takeaway via Kukd and was a little irritated to be told by the manager 'if you order from us directly, you get a discount; if not you get nothing'! A better customer service strategy would have been to apply the discount anyway to encourage me to return. However, the food ranged from poor to average, so it wouldn't have made a difference overall. The salad de caranguejos starter tasted like a huge pot of hot Shippams crab paste - disgusting! Chicken wings were standard and the roshuni zinga had no zing whatsoever. Chilli naan was good though. The restaurant is by the marina so could be nice to eat in - although it was very noisy when I collected the order.

Great as always
Good food well cooked

My new favourite curry house
Our favourite curry house sadly went out of business at the start of the recession and we hadn't been able to find one we liked as much - until today. Ordered from Marina and I'm now a convert. The food was full of flavour and we got a few extras (beyond the usual free popadom and salad): I got 3 samosas (most curry houses give you two) and they threw in a free veg side dish which I'd never have picked from the description but which is now my firm favourite.(It must have been aloo peas, potatoes + chickpeas in a herby, spicy but mild sauce with kalonji seeds.) My only gripe is that tarka daal was pureed to such an extent the texture was almost slimy but that didn't affect its flavour. All in all, we all enjoyed our food and will certainly come back again and again.
- E Browne

Great as usual
As long time user of a different Indian restaurant I was advised to switch to here by colleagues staying at the Apsley Holiday Inn, have not looked back since and have never had a bad meal from the guys at Marina. Keep up the good work!
- Peter Loftus

Review for Marina Spice Lounge
Overall the food was nice. Unfortunately my husband found the vegetable biriani too dry and would have liked a sauce. Otherwise the food was very tasty. Delivery was very friendly. Appreciated the free bottle of wine too!
- Marilyn Owen

Amazing curry yet again!!!
Ordered a curry from marina spice lounge for the family as we were having a takeaway night with the inlaws and once again we were given an amazing curry with massive portions for a brilliant price. Im very fussy with my currys so as long as everything here stays the same i will be using marina spice lounge for the very long future.

Marina Spice Lounge
This is our local Indian Restaurant and was able to walk to collect our order. We found the food to be a good quality and will be ordering from here again.

Marina Spice Lounge
This was the first time I've used Marina and I have to say I was very impressed. The food arrived early and was of a very high standard. The vindaloo was nice and spicy and the lamb just melted in your mouth. All in all a very nice meal, I would recommend giving them a try.
- Andy Brown

Great meal
Had a lovely meal and enjoyed the free bottle of red we got for spending over £30, was so much there though we will just get one rice to share between two as that will be plenty for future orders
- Vicki Burton

Great food, fast delivery
The wife and I really enjoyed the curry from Marina Spice. We have dined in at the restaurant before and the quality of the food delivered is as good as eating in. Excellent! I was pleasantly surprised for the delivery person to be wearing a shirt and tie, nice professional touch
- Huw Hamer

the lamb meat was good and the chicken portions were ample. I use this restaurant frequently and the menu is varied so it is possible to try other tastes. Is a little pricey
- Scott Boyden

Delicious food, delivered on time.
I really enjoyed the food from Marina Spice Lounge, and was happy to receive a complimentary bottle of wine with my order. It wasn't as spicy as I expected (I ordered the chicken Jalfrezi - 2 chili rating), but still tasty. Would order from again.
- Natalie Cook

Can't fault
Came bang on time, decent food.
- jonathan morton

Second time using marina spice lounge
This is the second time we have used marina spice lounge and the food was yet again AMAZING.The portion sizes were so HUGE we shared a main a rice a naan and a side and we were stuffed!This is definatly going to be our first choice of indian from now on.
- james Norman

Nice but pricey
I have just ordered from Marina Spice Lounge for the first time.The food arrived on time so that was great.My husband didn't enjoy his Lamb Malaya as it was a lot spicier than he had had at other restaurants.Mine was nice but not special for the extra money I paid.
- Carrie Stanworth

Fantastic Food and Service
This was the first time we have used this restaurant. Good quality food and first class service. The staff were very pleasant and professional the food was everything we hoped for. We will definitely be coming back here. Thank you Marina Spice Lounge!
