Don't do it!
On avery cold evening we were in the mood forca warming curry. Nothing special mind - warm and tasty would do.Spice looked the part on a Thurs night it was full. Nice decor- good atmostphere, we were congratulating ourselves on our choice. Unfortunately the food was AWFUL. Our suspicions were aroused when the poppadoms came with a flouro green chutney that could only have come to that colour from food colouring but when our mains arrived the shock set in.Bright orange butter chicken could've been a sellafield by-product. Drizzles in bland greasy cooking oil puporting to be butter the sauce was this kind of bland paste (the theme of the meal). I had to add salt for flavour- need I say more. Mutter paneer or cheese and peas was also in this paste (this time bright yellow) was not only bland but gritty and tepid. Rice was multi-coloured, naan was doughy. I couldn't help thinking if this were my restaurant I'd be embarassed to serve this. But as we sat there two more tables of came on ( one of 8). They're obviously doing good business -I just don't understand why.
