    Last time we were there it was Mexican and now it is Indian. The atmosphere was much nicer than most of the Indian restaurants I have gone to and while the menu was more limited, what we had was quite good. Looking forward to trying more on the menu.

    Our family was up in the area during lunch time and we checked Opentable and found Urban Spice. We were greeted and were sat immediately at our table. There was no one in the restaurant. As soon as were saw the menu we knew why...only 2 items on the menu...a vegetarian dish and a goat dish. We apologized and got up and left. Hopefully their dinner menu is better.

    My family went to Urban Spice to celebrate our anniversary. We first had a cocktail at the bar and the bartender was wonderful. He walked us through the menu and made an amazing margarita. He then prepared a table for us and suggested dinner options. I highly recommend the smoked eggplant with peas and the seabass. The rest of our group had the chicken tikka masala and loved it.

    We were 20+ size group including several small kids and few of us were vegetarian. We spent around $600 here. We selected them because of good reviews on OpenTable.com. We thought ambience, live music and Decor were nice, food quality was good and food presentation was top notch. Portion size were "tiny". I tried order Dum Aloo(Do not recommend), Daal Makhni (Do not recommend) and Paneer Tikka (Definitely recommend) and Naan ("Good"). Also, they do not have sling for infant seat, and they wouldn't allow infant car seat to be put on chair. We had to put our 2 months old child's car seat on the floor. The manager should Provide "Sling" for infants in car seat.

    The foods was good, service was a but spotty. Naan came 7 minutes after the entree so we had already finished the entree and did nt have the bread to go with it. The tables are a bit too high so the seating is uncomfortable. Loved the food and the ambience.

    The food was very good - well balanced not overly spicy for Indian food. The service - not so good. Table not served, waitress had to be asked for water several times, forgot an order because she didn't write it down - did not attend to closing check - just not attentive. This was annoying because the prices are high at the restaurant for what is given. Brought one little bowl of rice for 4 people. If they are going to charge Buckhead prices then should have Buckhead service.

    The title says it all. We waited 40 min for our apitizers, and it was so long I decided that I was going to start my phones stopwatch to see how long it took to get the main course. 55 min. Plus couple that with a terrible and incompetent waiter and you get a terrible dining experience that only redeems itself by its good tasting food.

    This was a great find. The lunch menu was limited to a vegetarian or non-vegetarian option with the non-veggie fair containing chicken and pork. They had plenty of sauces to choose from including a medium spicey green sauce. The entire meal was absolutely delicious and our server was on point. The ambiance was quiet enough for a very productive lunch meeting with my customers. We will definitely be back.

    I usually don't send in a review after an open table experience. My husband and I love the spices in Indian & Persian Food. This was a real find. We went early on a Sunday evening and are making plans to go back as soon as possible. The food was simply delicious. The menu has a lot to offer and it was hard to decide- everything looked so good. They also had a very good cocktail menu. If you don't try this place and you love this type of food called "Northern Indian", you will miss out!

    Food was good. We were famished & were satisfied beyond expectations. Not sure what to expect when walking in. Prices much higher than the typical Indian restaurants. Live Music at the bar was the extreme LOW point of our experience. Way too loud (esp the female singer) - we prayed for a break but it happened too late; add to this volume the sound of cheering and clapping bartenders.... it was too much to bear. We were in the adjacent dining area so it was unavoidable. Totally clashing. Lights were too bright. Lamb patties tasted more like bean patties. Lamb shank, chicken tika, sesame okra were fantastic. Server Mark was great, Alexi was very accommodating. Keep up the good work, but tweak out the noisy & low stuff.

    You basically have four choices for lunch and other than identifying as vegetarian and non-vegatarian, the menu descriptions were meaningless. Very expensive, food is marginal at best, minimal choices, and nothing about it felt like an Indian restaurant experience. I do not expect this restaurant to be open for long.

    To start with they think they are in Manhattan. The prices are sky rocketing, quantity is very very less and quality is like any other average place. We ended up leaving the place right after our starters and completed our main course at another indian resturant across the street. If you really want to be satisfied with your meal than be prepared to spend 80-90 $ person. ... The quantity is so less that one person has to order at least 2 main dishes. I am never going back to this place ever again....

    We tried Urban Spice as a last minute choice on a Sunday night and it was wonderful! It was hard to choose what to try on the menu, but we started with a flatbread that was a cross between Indian and Mexican (hard to explain but WONDERFUL) and a ginger shrimp that was out of this world. My husband played it safe and had the Tikki Masala where I had the Lamb Shank - both excellent. The service was great and everyone kept making sure everything was okay. The flavors are great, and I would definitely recommend this to anyone - this will soon be our favorite neighborhood spot.

    My with and I went to the "soft opening" on Valentines night. That along with Atlanta being shut down earlier in the week, explained why our waiter may have been a little on the inexperienced side and/or unprepared for the night. While very professional and eager to serve, he needed to brush up a little more to get 5 stars. The food was absolutely 5-stars. We had the Smoked chicken with Cashew sauce, lamb chops, sesame seed okra, and several other dishes; and they were all too delicious to decide which I liked best. These guys have found a perfect combination of Indian with a flare of Mexican. Think curie with a little cilantro thrown in. We will definitely be back for another special night out.
