    Spice Kitchen was a little out of the way on our trip back from Hershey, but I will drive the three hours from home just to go back again! It's that good. We had such a wonderful meal there, we ordered another entire meal for four to go. The lamb saag was the absolute best I have ever had. I highly recommend Spice Kitchen for travelers. If you are a local and haven't been, you are really missing out.

    I have been critical of this restaurant for a long while. The service staff is very transient. They recently hired a new manager and it made a big difference. We were very happy with the care in service and the attentiveness of the waitress and manager. I am hopeful this is step in the right direction. The food was good, but not the best I have had, but acceptable.

    It has been a year since I have been here. The last experience was awful and I swore I would never go there again. The restaurant has gone down over the years. I thought maybe a year would make a difference, so I gave it a try again. The food was a little better, but as before, the service was terrible. The restaurant was packed and they only had 2 waiters with one of them being his first night. The only advantage to this restaurant is that it is 2 miles from my house, but there is so much competition that it is not worth going here if you have another option. I would highly recommend Aman in Norristown (Germantown and 202). I think the owner is stretched too thin since he opened up a new location in Harleysville.

    We chose medium spice on our dishes and they were almost not edible due to how spicy they were, coming from an Asian person, this says a lot. When we ordered the mango lassi, there was a carbonation to them, as if the yogurt went bad. The server started to argue with is about it. When new glasses were brought out, it was a watered down version with bits of curd. Not appealing.

    While I'm not Indian, I've visited a number of the numerous Indian restaurants in the Western Philly suburbs and also elsewhere. I've also been here on a number of occasions both with friends and on my own -> hands down, this is one of my favorite Indian restaurants. The food is delicious of which my favorites include paneer tikka masala, chicken 65, and goal masala. I also feel the prices are reasonable. Also try the drinks…some interesting and delicious options. The atmosphere is very nicely decorated and kept clean and service has always been good/fast. If you're in the area or can drive a little bit, this place is worth the visit.

    This Indian restaurant, tucked into a nondescript strip mall in Trooper on Ridge Pike, is a true neighborhood gem. When you walk in, the deep red walls and soft billowy curtains calm you and make you feel welcome. Johnna, the hostess, is a keeper. She treats you like you're special and makes sure you get all your questions answered. The Tangy Eggplant appetizer was stellar, and the Vegetable Navratan Korma and Chicken Tikka Masala were cooked to perfection. If you're considering Indian food in this area, I highly recommend The Spice Kitchen.

    We went on the Valentine's day this year, though we haven't been to the restaurant in a long time and were regulars when it opened up 2 years back. The food is not as good as it used to be, the chinese chilly chicken was not good at all, but the rest of the food was not bad. I would recommend to improve the food, as the taste doesn't do justice to the price being paid.

    This was our second time here. The service was good, but we were also the only people in the restaurant at the time. The food came out quickly, is reasonably-priced, and everything was delicious. We ordered an appetizer to share, two curries, and the bread basket, plus kheer (rice pudding) for dessert. There was plenty to eat plus a LOT of leftovers. I would definitely recommend eating here if you like good Indian food.

    The Spice Kitchen is a wonderful neighborhood gem located in a strip mall on Ridge Pike in Trooper, PA. As die-hard Indian food fans, we were pleased to find such delicious food so close to home. The decor is whimsical and romantic and the servers, though sometimes slow, are attentive and well-informed on the menu items. The meals we've had there, including chicken tiki masala, vegetable korma, and aloo gobi, have been consistently good. The only inconsistency we've found is with the vegetable somosas. The first time we ordered them they were the best we've ever had, but the second time they were over-cooked, bland, and far too crispy. Overall, we highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to going back soon.

    We've eaten at the Spice Kitchen several times and used their catering services for a graduation party. Occasionally there is a service problem but the food was good. This time service was pretty bad. Twice they took our menus off the table before we had a chance to order. We had to open our own wines. Four of five entrees came out but not mine. After waiting 10 plus minutes I asked about it was told any moment. It was several more moments before it and the naan we had ordered finally arrived. My dish was dry and disappointing. I had ordered the special kebab dish, one of the more expensive dishes, that was supposed to contain shrimp. What I finally received contained two very small shrimp that were overcooked. We will not be coming back.

    For some reason I thought from the reviews that the place was really good. I wasn't... It was average. Not bad. Average. The waitress was very inexperienced but friendly. She did things like bringing three drinks to the table at once and leaving them in one place, then headed back to the kitchen for something else. The owner is a nice guy who came and chatted with us. We drove past another favorite Indian restaurant to get there. The prices aren't cheap. Spice in Edgemont or in West Chester are better.

    Being born in the UK and having been to India several times, I like to think I know what authentic Indian food tastes like. The food here was terrible by anyones standards. The chef not only does not know what real indian food should taste like but he clearly does not know what good food tastes like generally.

    This restaurant has a knack for making all their dishes flavorful and authentic yet light and manageable. Many find Indian cuisine in restaurants to make them feel extremely full in addition to being served large portions; Spice Kitchen dishes feature delicious sauces that are packed with flavor yet not heavy and allow you to enjoy the other aspects of the meal, such as delicious sides, apps, and breads.

    I always enjoy eating here. I and my family have been coming here since it opened. The food is tasty. The small touches on Valentines Day were excellent. The chilled plate with a bit of vanilla ice cream and a rose was a lovely gesture. The music was appropriate for such a romantic evening. I am never disappointed when I eat here.

    The food is delicious, but the service was terrible. Since it was a BYOB, we brought a bottle of wine. The hostess quickly grabbed our wine to open it. However, ten minutes later, we had no idea where the hostess went with our bottle. At this point in the night, we still didn't order. Finally after twenty minutes, we received our bottle of wine, and we were able to order. The server asked what we would like to eat. But, he was not friendly nor polite, and didn't answer any of our questions about the menu. The food came out hot and delicious! Since our food was spicy, which we enjoyed, it was difficult to eat it because our water glasses were empty. We had no idea where our server went, so we asked other servers for water.

    This restaurant has been struggling with help situations for the past 2 years, but their food always had me coming back. I was there last week and was disappointed on both fronts. The service staff was totally disorganized and the food was very disappointing. I do not know if they had an off night in the kitchen or their cooks are also transient. The restaurant better get their act together or they will lose whatever clientale they currently have.

    We went on a Monday night and were the only customers there. So, it was very quiet and romantic. We brought a red wine since it was BYOB and that paired up well with the food. We selected the 'mild' spicy and it was definately spicy, but not too hot I couldn't enjoy my food. Looking foward to going back to try new things. I liked that they had a tablet computer they used to order - they had pictures of the food so it would give you an idea of what you were ordering, if you are not familiar with it.
