SquareMeal Review of Spice Trader

Bronze Award

Cheap & largely cheerful, this basement curry house delivers a standard list of high-street staples in reassuringly presentable surroundings. It’s as handy for a relaxed curry fix as for smart-suited business entertaining. Don’t expect any shocks or surprises on the menu, which covers seekh kebabs, onion bhajis & samosas, before alighting on chicken dopiaza, lamb pasanda & a host of tandoori specialities. Duck shashlik with grilled tomato, onions & green pepper is about as interesting as it gets. Vegetarians should be able to put together a meal from the various side dishes.

Proper Indian Curry House

This is what I want when I go for a curry. Not over the top, good portions, friendly staff and a menu I can actually understand. These types of restuarant are becoming scarce nowadays, especially in the city. I'm not after a fancy fine dining experience, I just want to have a good time in a relaxed and comfortable environment and enjoy myself.

This place is awesome. Standard menu, but that's what you want really. If you want “slow roasted guinea fowl with a curry jus over a compote of rice and…” this isn't the place for you. if you want healthy sized portions, cold beer, good efficient service, in a non fancy (underground) place, then this is for you. Get involved. The last review gave it 5/10 for the worst curry ever. Not a bad score for such a bad event. I love it and go there frequently. Loving the sag paneer and the pesh.

Quite possibly the worst Indian I have come across. The menu can be described as boring and the food is plain bog-standard Indian fare cooked to a rather mediocore standard.
