Lovely food, friendly staff
A great local restaurant and superb takeaway. Fresh hot food delivered to my door under 30 minutes on a Sunday evening from a very friendly gentleman. My meal tasted great and wonderful free dish included.Thank you and I will return.

Great food and flavours. I especially loved the daal massala, arrived well before estimated delivery time which was good.
- Catherine Goodwin

Great indian food
We have been clients of The Spice for some years, and have tried most of the specialties. They are all well executed and never fail to surprise positively.

- Darren Bland

Veggie korma
The food was ready on time, the gentleman that gave it to me was very nice. I really like the dish, it was tasty and warm, a bit more of vegetables would be great as there were not many, in general, I really enjoy the meal.
- Claudia Ferre

Excellent, as ever
The Spice is a great restaurant, and the online delivery service is a welcome development
- Rose Wild

Excellent as always
This is the best Restaurant in the area, food is fresh & hot
- Jose Feliciano

Price Increase
I'm a big fan of this restaurant, however I've just noticed they have increased their prices. They have added a pound to all of the main dishes..
- Jayson Smallcombe

Food was good, came super fast and with a free side dish!
- Valeria Oliveira

Good quality food, good value
The food was what I expected; excellent. The vegetables were clearly freshly prepared and the chicken tender (no stringy bits!).
- Tim OBrien

snow problem
After Bengal Lancer and Gulshaan refused to deliver from Kentish Town on a snowy night (roads fine and living under a mile from both restaurants) great that the Spice had no problem in conjuring up another good meal (usually go in and take advantage of their brilliant £9.99 cash deal.
- Bruce Jackson

All excellent as always!
The food arrived earlier than expected and everything was delicious.
- Laura Gil Santana

Tasty. Very tasty. Fast delivery. Very friendly staff. Brilliant!!!

Thank you
Great food. Switched to The Spice from our usual Indian due to its outstanding rating for food hygine. Really pleased, food tasted great. thank you.
- James Tomlin

Large portions, tasty
I used to order all of the time from the Spice when I lived two doors down. I remember fondly those meals, how great the staff were and after moving back in the neighbourhood, I thought it would be great to order again. I ordered the veg vindaloo, madras, sag aloo, bindi and got a free order of channa masala. I did ask for the curries to be spicy, which they weren't really. I expected a vindaloo to be really spicy. Food portions were big and still tasty. It would be good to see other veg in the curry, rather than just peas, corn and potato. How about aubergine and okra? I would definitely order again but maybe word a different way how spicy i want the food!
- Laila Zafar

Great Meal
Second time I have tried this restaurant and just as good as before

Best Indian Take Out I've Had
Best Indian take out I've had - and eat in for that matter. This restaurant rocks. By far the best Indian I've had including all of Brick Lane. It's cheap too. Very quick home delivery and the restaurant is chilled and laid back too. Excellent flavours and not oily. Even the naan excelled. Bravo!
- Suzie Stapleton

Excellent Food
Cant fault the lovely food and value for money, the only thing was it arrived an hour early 8 instead of 9 as it clearly stated on the bill.
- Paul Cowen

All perfect
The food was made on time, and tasted delicious, so everything ok
- Miguel Angel Garcia Ruiz

The Spice
Chicken Korma was uneventful, (not my choice of dish) could do with more flavour and a thicker sauce. All the vegetable dishes seemed to have the same taste... which was unforunfortunate as they were well balanced with other ingredients. All well cooked and in good time, just a few tweaks needed. Would also be nice to receive mint sauce with onion bhaji.
- Amy Pipe

Always come back
It was a wonderful supper. Fresh and delicious and satisfying.
- Jocelyn West

Great meal, thank you
Excellent food, as ever, and I love the online service, very clear menu and super efficient

- Steven Price

Delicious, tasty, authentic, reasonably priced fresh food
- Catherine Milne

Swift and delicious
Have been ordering takeaways from The Spice for years, as well as eating in, but this was the first time I ordered online. Great service, super-swift delivery and, as ever, totally delicous food! Recommended.
- Lee Kynaston

disappoint on online order
This restaurant is our family favourite and I use to order over the phone and use to end up to get generous extra popadom and so on but on line order we had no idea how many pieces are in one portion of veg samosa-which comes in big paper bag but two tiny samosa fell out - we all laughed. somehow paid more then usual but end up with less portion! but food is good as always not too salty or too sweet like any other restaurant take away.
- Serah Davies

got a takeaway
Moved to the area 6 months ago and first time using this restaurant. Food was excellent, tasty and high quality. 10 out of 10!

Great food and friendly delivery
Food never fails to satisfy
- Cameron Bell

Very oily buy tasty!
The first thing we noticed was the huge amount of oil sitting on top of the curry :( We managed to soak some of it off but the aubergine side dish (which was free, so that's good!!) was far too oily to enjoy. My husband and I both enjoyed our curry though!
- carolyn mckay

Moderately good experience
A nice flavour mix with a bonus free side dish as our order was over £20, however the meat dishes were a little on the tough side and the portions were comparatively small. The poppadom situation was somewhat confusing, having added poppadoms to the order we were presented with one, albeit one large, but still a single poppadom. Did not realise you had to order them in numbers as normally they are numerous with curry orders.
- Sarah Batters

Great flavour
It's one of the only keema's I've been able to have in North London. Great food although the tarka deal was a little thin for my taste, and food was delivered steaming hot.
- Carol Neen

Very tasty
Great food and service. Normally im not too satisfied with takeout food but this was very delicious.
- Eleanor Kifun

Delivery time wrong
My food came an hour and a half before it was due to be delivered so it was cold by the time we were meant to eat it
- Eilis Smyth

Very tasty and fresh food would definitely recommend The Spice, will visit again.
- Paul Jones

Chicken pasanda
Ordered chicken pasanda, tasted nothing like chicken pasanda, wasn't creamy instead sauce was Brown and lacked flavour. The lamb samosa were oily, tiny, and suprised only two in portion. The paratha was oily. Very disappointed, won't be ordering again.
- Marvin Wade

Tasty delicious food, great service
The food from the spice is the nicest Indian food in North London! The food is always hot when it arrives and so delicious! The staff at the spice are so helpful and friendly!

- Fiona Feather

Great food
Great flavours and came really quickly. Definitely recommend
- Leona Leipold

Being Indian I expected amazing stuff but I was extremely disappointed the prawn vindaloo had one prawn only and whole box of curry. The lamb biryani was so plain it was plain rice. Overall a very poor experience.
- Yamini Naidu

Excellent service
Speedy and friendly customer service
- Hannah Jarvis

Delicious food and excellent service like always..
- Nikita Mehtani

A bit disappointed
Good vegetable dishes but prawns were very over salted and chicken tikka masala was really poor. Hardly any chicken and a bland sauce.

Great food. we always order from here. However I ordered in advance and booked a specific time slot and the food was delivered an hour early and my partner wasn't even home from work so the food went cold.

Great curry
Very enjoyable and quick friendly service would use agAin
- Jill Krishnan

I love ordering from these guys! The food is really tasty, great value and always comes with a couple of extras- raita, onion salad, poppadoms. I couldn't find the option to order coke so requested they bring me a can in the message section and I'd pay cash, they arrived (really quickly) and wouldn't take money for it. Will continue to order from The Spice
- Joanna Barrett

We have eaten at The Spice many times and they never let us down. Amazing food and service! Highly recommend :-)

Love The Spice
I absolutely love the spice! Not only are the staff lovely & friendly, they also never fail to deliver great customer service. The good is amazing & definitely value for money. Whenever I fancy an Indian this is my only choice, I will not go elsewhere as no where else compares.
- Shakira

Great and super quick service!
The dinner arrived 15 mins after I ordered and everything was great!
- Maria

Fresh food good service
Good very light and fresh. Service: dealt well with a mix up regarding free side. Curriesonline need to change the way free sides are catered for. Not in the notes section.
- Amir

Best Indian Food
great service and great food

Arrived quickly, tasty food
The delivery came quickly considering it was quite a big order and the food was excellent. Part of the order was for a lamb dhansak which was more peppery than usual but still my favorite.
- Marissa

Quick and tasty
Tasty food, quick on a Friday night, good portions.
- Ezequiel Martin Camara

The best Indian restaurant in London. And the people who work there are lovely. Five stars for the food and the service, thank you!

- Chloe

Great service
Thank you - very accommodating and personal service. Great curry too!

Yummy and fast as usual
Ordered one of their lamb house specials, always a bit skeptical about ordering lamb but it was pretty good, maybe a little bit over cooked but not fatty which is always a risk. Sauce was beautiful, rice really well done and it came with a nice onion salad and poppadoms, good value for money and very prompt.
- Joanna Barrett

- Joseph

Great service as usual
Tasty food arrived in good time. Could have been a little hotter though. Never mind, popped some in the microwave. Will use them again
- Brenda Martin

Quick and tasty
Everything great, though the lamb was a little tough. Excellent paratha and daal. Complimentary bahji's, salad and popadoms were much appreciated. We recommend The Spice !
- Mark Webber

Despite requesting not too much onion both mains were full of them- detracting from the otherwise tastiness. Had to remove much of it to get to the chicken and lamb of which there was disappointingly little. Side dishes were fine. Why far too much onion Tufnell Park Spice?
- Brenda Martin

Only problem was too many onions again but I forgot to request less of them . Otherwise thoroughly enjoyed it.
- Brenda Martin

Great meal!
Tasty, great value for money, and really great customer service.
- Kirsty

Excellent, authentic tastes

- Dan Giffen

First Time
This was the first time I had used the online portal to order and the first time I had tried "THE SPICE". My meal was ready and waiting when I arrived to collect it. When I got it home, the portions were generous and it was an absolutely lovely meal.
- Geoffrey Burton

Not up to the usual standard
I have ordered from the spice on several occasions and it had always been excellent. Last night however I was very disappointed, the nan bread was dry and stale, the spice mix was as the name suggests mixed! The chicken was lovely but the rest was stale tasting. The pathia was oily to excess and not as tasty as usual. Hoping this was just a blip!
- Edel Crowley

Excellent curry and arrived quickly.
- Kyle Watkinson

The food was stone cold and tasted incredibly unpleasant, for some reason they had mistaken off milk with crème fraiche. Dire, absolutely dire. The lamb samosas were however superb and the delivery driver was very nice and on time.
- Kuki Taylor

Excellent value and taste
Our first order did not disappoint. Portion sizes were generous - we ordered a veggie tasting platter and had some left-overs after feeding two. And the quality was also good, we will be ordering from The Spice again.
- Kristine Beese

Great food, lovely service
I will go back!
- Natalie Kent

decent grub
very good
- vedkarmasatee joyram

I have been ordering from the spice for many years and the food never disappoints.
- lee perkins

A real shame
After reading a positive review online we decided on The Spice out of the panoply of well-reviewed curry houses in the area. I was extremely disappointed with the value for money and the quality of the food. For £28 for two people I expected something that wasn't run-of-the-mill fare and unfortunately it was just that. It wasn't exceptionally bad, it was just boring, overpriced for the quality and a big disappointment. I'm a big believer in spending locally, so it's a great shame that we won't be ordering from here again,
- Alex Lodge

Speedy, delicious and consistently enjoyable
- Al Mobbs

Always good food and always get a little freebie very delicious too.
- Michelle Masters

Standard Curry, Great Service
We tried The Spice for the first time last night. It wasn't bad, and it wasn't great. Service was terrific and food arrived fast, but the chef seems to love his/her ghee! There was a nice layer of it on top of everything. All in all an average Indian meal, I'd say.
- Samuel Peterson

The Spice
We are always very pleased with the quality and service of food from The Spice, hence why we keep ordering from them!
- Amy Turner

- Natalie Kent

Really excellent curry
Fantastic curry! Would get again
- Natalie Kent

Excellent again
This is my local Indian restaurant and they have never failed me. Excellent service - either takeaway or sitting down in the restaurant. The food is great and everyone I take there thinks so too.
- Ben Gooderham

always good....
we always enjoy our meal from The Spice...fantastic! thank you :-)
- Kathryn Anderson

We love The Spice, Tufnell Park!!
Have been going to The Spice, and also ordering their takeaways, for years...but to now find them on Curries On Line...can't get much better than that!! the Spice is without doubt my favourite Indian restaurant in London, hands down!! Thank you!!
- Kathryn Anderson

the spice review
very good and quick service. Tasty food

when i order curry i always order from spice but last nights meal left a lot to be desired. the korma was bland and not particularly impressed with the quality of food. will not be going back to spice will now try to find another consistently good takeaway
- marion grez

Absolutely fantastic! Been searching for a good Indian takeaway.Service and food both excellent.Will defo order again.
- Tracy Fitzpatrick

Great food, nice people
Tasty food, very nice people in the restaurant, and the delivery guy was on time (but still apologised for the delay in delivery). Recommended
- N Mehta

Effort always shows..
I rarely write reviews but I couldn't resist having now had three meals from The Spice over the last 9 months and always thoroughly enjoyed them.It seems they're always prepared to make a special effort and the results are in the whole experience. We'll be back soon.
- clifford moss

Excellent as always
Our favourite Indian restaurant. Always delicious, especially the house specials and the bombay potatoes.
- Catherine Sebastian

Great meal
Very nice food and great service. Everything arrived correctly and very promptly. Recommended.
- Joseph Hughes

First Time, Will Return
my first time getting take out from The Spice, even though I have lived in the area for many years.was pleasantly surprised at the friendly service and good quality of food. I even got a free portion of excellent onion bhajis.the food was good - the main meat dish was probably the weakest - slightly too much ghee and a bit too much garlic. but was still good overall and will definitely be going back.
- Malcolm Woolliams

Delicious food from The Spice
The Spice is our favourite place for Indian food, either to eat in or to take away. The specials are particularly excellent.
- Catherine Sebastian

Not great as a vegetarian option. The veggie korma was watery and tasteless. Also there were no free popadoms included with a full meal. A small detail but a little dissapointing as i can think of 3 places at least in the immediate vicinity that do so. I opted for the spice as it was a couple of quid cheaper than other 'posher' local options in N19, but i shall not be doing so aghain. the extra couple of quid is worth it for flavour and poppadoms!
- jason ross

swift prompt lovely
- barry teague

Great, reliable, family company
...but this time the food wasn't so good. I've been ordering from there every few weeks for the past 2 years and the food is normally good but on this particular occasion it was a little cold, which is surprising as they are normally very quick to deliver and usually supply it hot. On this occasion too, there was hardly any chicken either. Be also warned that their curries have more oil than some.
- Jon Barber

good food
delivery a little slow but food ok
- vedkarmasatee joyram

Food arrived much quicker than anticipated and was very tasty!
- Phoebe Kitscha

The Spice
The food is yummy, and very reasonable pricing and quick service!! Yummy yummy food!!
- Hannah Davis

Reliable as always
All food was great except for the tadoori, which was a bit disapointing. Lamb tikka massala especially good. Service very good as always.
- Joanna Weaving

Fast service, good food
Incredibly fast delivery - although the courier apologised for being slow! Very good food.
- Lynn Greenwood

Always great
Awesome as always.
- Charles Brockbank

fast service and good value but lacking on flavour a little
The food came really fast and the portions were good but the dishes we got were a little bland. That was probably due to what we ordered as I have eaten here many times and it has been great.
- D Thornton

Great food and super fast delivery
The Spice is great ... lots of good vege meals. Delivery was super fast

Bestest Curry
I usually come with my friends but this place is the besttttt ever around the whole of camden borogh, recomend the morrissa, it makes it a better as it a family business

Nice curry speedy delivery
Super fast delivery good prices yummy fresh food. Add a note if you want it spicy. We normally share a curry between two of us. It was large enough to share but not huge. I have had bigger curries, but they were from more expensive places.

Great food in Holloway
Delivery was very fast and the food was great, been here a few times now and recommend the dansak. They also seem to give you free side dishes with each order.
- Tom Pugh

As always good food and speed of delivery

- Al Mobbs

Fast and tasty
the food was tasty but not so hot by the time it reached us & also the dal especially was far too oily.
- Mark Webber

Fast delivery polite and friendly staff
Excellent tasting food, however as has already been said slightly too much oil in some of the dishes,still nice and hot when order arrived.
- Mark Bateman

Good food Arrived quickly Friendly staff

- Jamie Whittle

Always Good
Delicious food as always and polite & generous service. I would say though that having ordered from here last month we did notice that it was more oily than the last time as is highlighted in a below review. Still great but would be better with less oil.
- Charles Brockbank

Good nosh

- Matthew Brown

Very good
Absolutely delicious flavours - my only criticism is that it's slightly too oily, but it's not difficult to drain off some of the excess.
- Charlotte Dewar

Best curry in North London - Never dissapoints

- Jack Dunning

An Old Favourite
We used to frequent this place a few years back when we lived in Tuffnel Park adn were always impressed. Found out from this website we could order from here now we've moved so we went back to then and have been very pleased with our past 3 orders. Would always recommend. Great food, flavours and service.
- Charles Brockbank

the set meal has little flavour

- Jan Antolik

too much onion
Everything tasted the same. should use herbs and spices to better effect.,Too much onion and very oily.
- Desi Berman

First Class
Excellent food, intruiging and subtle flavours, attentive service. Excellent.
- Andrew Wilkins

Forgotten Great
I used to go here when I used to live close by and always loved it but forgot about it when I moved further down Holloway Rd. Tried it again and was not disappointed, excellent flavours & quality.
- Charles Brockbank

Very good
I have been a regular customer for the restaurant but have never tried the delivery service.
- Benjamin Beer

This place is very deceiving, I always walk past it on my way home from work and have never bothered ordering before only because I was quite happy with my regular place I was going to. I searched online to find a link to this place and thought I might as well give it a try, so I did, and what an experience I had. I was totally bowled over, the food was delicious with a good balance of flavours. This is my new regular place now
- Mr shelim rashid

loved the food
superb food and service
- Mr shelim rashid

Simply Superb
Truly an unforgettable experience, seldom you come across restaurants serving good food and service. An absolute gem
- Mr shelim rashid

Very authentic tasting food
I have to say I do consider myself somewhat an expert on Indian and Bangladeshi food and have been a fan for over 20 years. I ordered a meal from this place because of a recommendation and I am very impressed, the food tasted very delicious, not overgreased or too bright due to the artificial colouring. I would easily recommend this to anyone looking for a tasty and wholesome food.
- Mr shelim rashid

Fantastic food and quick delivery
Excellent food, the taste was truly divine. I am always weary of ordering from restaurants that I havent been to but this proved to be lucky for me. Will use again
