Please do not eat here firstly they double charged us for the masala sauce when we only ordered one! The masala sauce was terrible no flavour whatsoever, the nan bread was Burnt and so tough I couldn’t chew it and the Briyani was so tasteless!...Please don’t waste your money I had to throw it in the bin!More

I had a party of 10 to cater for we ordered from Spice Island. The food arrived on time, was still very hot, and more importantly absolutely delicious. The service and customer care at Spice Island is exemplary. Spice Island claim to be the best...Indian restaurant in Islington. I think they’re being too modest and would give any Indian restaurant in London a run for their money. And absolute must for great food.More

This restaurant has great potential given its prime location near Dalston Junction. It features an excellent, reasonably priced and well-executed Indian/Balti menu. The Madras Curry with Chicken was a standout dish for flavour and quality of ingredients. The prices are reasonable for London, and the...venue has been newly renovated with comfortable seating, good lighting and large windows looking out on the DeBeauvoir conservation area. However, there is something wrong with the table service; there were two of us arriving on a Friday evening about 21:30 - not especially late. We were promptly seated but no orders taken for at least 10 minutes. It was a good 30 minutes until food delivery; these are very long wait times for restaurants of this type. And worse, service ended before we completed eating; it was not even 23::00 and there was no followup service when we finished our mains. We made a polite request for Masala tea rather than chai, deferring to a more multicultural view of India. No was the response, we only have english tea. Feeling very unwelcome, we left the restaurant promptly and without leaving a tip. It's not too late for this venue to relaunch with proper service; otherwise I'd recommend saving it for a takeaway option when ordering through Deliveroo or Uber Eats (they service both channels).More

Great tasting food, attentive service. If you are a Bengali or have taste for Bengali fish and/or meat delicacies, you should visit and sample their fare. We visited them twice within one week - looking forward to our next trip to London.
