Spice Of India, 13 Small Street, Bristol, BS1 1DE
I have been going to this Indian restaurant since I first came to Bristol back in 2000. It’s in the city-centre, tucked away on one of the back streets. Having moved away from Birmingham, the curry capital of the UK, I was very keen to find somewhere in Bristol which served great Indian food. Spice Of India does this and I’m so glad it’s there.
A few days ago I came here for a meal with a group of friends and we had a variety of dishes. Here are the verdicts.
Samba Chicken — I really enjoyed this dish. I normally pick spicy dishes, yet I decided to opt for something far less spicy but coconut centred. Really tasty, I would have this dish again. By lovefoodpinny
Chuka Sabji Dall — Culinary equivalent of a hot mud bath, thick and sloppy, pleasantly warming and comforting. It left me feeling satisfied yet a bit mucky. By Toby
Chuka Sabji Dall — The old favourite. By Blenchly
Lamb Dansak — Thick lentil sauce with good flavours and succulent chunks of lamb which fell apart. Not as hot as I had expected (it being in the Hot section of the menu) but the level of spice was just right. I find it’s better to be able to enjoy the flavours of a curry instead of numbing your taste buds. A very tasty dish that I would choose again. My only disappointment with this visit to Spice Of India was the service. Normally very friendly, our waiter seemed to be distracted & grumpy and cleared the plates before we’d all finished – something that irritates me! By Karen
Kufta Bhuna — The best dish I’ve had in Spice of India! By Matt
Balti Chicken — It was nice and meaty and a bit sweet. The bread was nice and so was the beer. By Botch Claypole
Bahar Chicken — This was tasty! By Tintenfisch
