100% recommend this fabulous restaurant, however do call them direct as bookings made on here don't get to them!!!
Despite our booking they had no record of it. So had a 40 minute wait
However once seated the food was very good and fast
A pleasure to dine in with top quality food and very friendly staff.
We've never visited Petersfield before so when we found ourselves staying there on the night before Valentines for the Watercress Line Steam Gala, we consulted Tripadvisor. We both fancied Indian and we narrowed the choice down to two, eventually selecting the Spice Lounge as it was close to a decent pub where we could have a couple of drinks before our meal. We booked a table for two for 8pm online and arrived early to find the restaurant bursting at the seams with several people already waiting for takeaways and/or tables. We were eventually seated at a table for two sandwiched very close between couples on either side so we could hear every word of their conversations. We had papadums to start which arrived with only mango chutney, onion "salad", and the usual spiced yoghurt "raita". I ordered chicken tikka pathia which is my frequent choice and husby ordered chicken tikka karhai. Both dishes had the two chilli symbol which was as expected. When our meal arrived, my husband's was pretty bland with hardly any "hotness". Mine, on the other hand, was extraordinarily hot - far hotter than any curry I had ever tasted before. My lips were really burning and there was no way I could eat it. I called over the manager who said something about "angry chef" and promised to replace it in "five minutes" (?). In a little over the five minutes, a new dish of pathia and new pilau rice arrived. I tried the new blend which was too sweet and no hotness at all. In the end, we left most of our meals, paid and escaped. We should definitely have chosen the other restaurant!! Shame, because the manager seemed like a really nice guy but it was definitely a Valentines to remember for all the wrong reasons!
Enjoyed our meal as always. Great food excellent service good choice of food and drink . Great value for money. Would recommend .
This was the second time we have been here with different friends , both times the food was fantastic and all very friendly . Our friends said they will bring there friends as well . Could not fault the spice lounge .
Food wasn't flavoursome at all, in fact very bland. Head waiter was bad tempered to the point of being rude, not just to us but to everyone. Had to wait a long time for bill then another long time for them to take payment. Busy and a good atmosphere, lovely building, but wouldn't go again as food just not up to scratch.
Foods was good but the downside waiting 25 mins to pay the bill.
Good restuarant, tasty food and good service. Only down side was the 'hottest curry in the world' the naga. We expected blow your head off spice! but didn't get it...
We'll tell the chef to pep it up a tad next time! :)
Spice Lounge is a cosy, friendly and busy restaurant set upstairs in a quaint old building. The service was diligent and the food authentic and tasty.
This is by far the best curry I've had locally, however don't visit here in a rush. It took an hour from seating to receiving our first course- we weren't in a rush but the table next to us had complained with the same problem. Definitely worth putting up with the speed of service for the quality of the food though and the takeaway is yummy too.
Really enjoyed our curry, both choices were incredibly tasty. Lamb was a bit chewy so next time I would go for chicken but overall very much enjoyed it. Our waiter was not particularly engaging but the free shot of sambuca at the end made up for it!
From the moment we walked in to the moment we left the staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. The food was great and there was a lot of choice on the menu.
We will certainly be returning.
Excellent service, good quality food, lots of dishes to choose from.
Recently moving to the petersfield area my girlfriend and I went here for my birthday meal and the food was fantastic! Probably the nicest Indian I have ever had , great atmosphere and was well looked after by the staff, we will definitely be coming back for more! Thank you very much spice lounge
Tried to book by phone, leaving messages but with no response - eventually booked online. On arrival, they clearly had no record of our booking but did cobble together a table for 8 in their busy restaurant. It took 2 waiters and a fair amount of time to get us some drinks, all while the fire alarm was shrieking! After another long wait, we asked them to take our order, just mains as not enough time for starters or desert. We had to ask for more drinks and then again, with 30 minutes until our taxi, for our food. The restaurant had emptied, but no tables were cleared, leaving us surrounded by mess, which was surprising considering they were well staffed. The food was excellent but even the free drink at the end wouldn't entice me back.
The restaurant was very busy which is always a good sign though it was slightly unfortunate to be put in the back room and service was a little slow. However the staff were apologetic and offered free liqueurs after the meal. Food was excellent! A large range of interesting dishes and all at good prices. If you're looking for and Indian restaurant they don't come much better!
An attractive ambience in old timber-framed and beamed building just off Petersfield Square. Some attractive spicy dishes on a more interesting menu than many curry restaurants. Steep staircase access not suitable for disabled.
The whole evening was really good service with a smile, superb food all round lovely wines and a free Sambuca to finish, we will definately come again :-)and tell our curry loving friends!!
This is a great little gem of a place in Petersfield. Delicious food and incredibly friendly and attentive service.
We visited Spice Lounge as a family with ten guests between xmas and New Year. The food was beautiful. The restaurant had lots of character with the oak beams. The service was very good indeed. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant for an informal meal with friends.
