Have been meaning to dine here for over a year. Kicking ourselves for not coming sooner! Wonderful food tastefully prepared. The shrimp and peanut salad is outstanding.

Very nice wine list. 21 Spices will be on our regular tour!

It was my First time I have been in 21 spices and our server Alex made it very special evening! She recommended couple thing from the menu and I still I can’t decide what was the best! Managers were so kind and checked our table couple times. I will definitely go there again! Thank you Alex for wonderful evening!

Food was excellent. Enjoyed everything. They were willing to make a dish that wasn’t on the menu today. The waitress and bus boy were extremely pleasant and attentive to our needs.

We have made 21 Spices our go-to place to enjoy a great meal and outstanding service. This is without a doubt the best Indian restaurant I’ve ever enjoyed dining in and that includes living in London for 6 years. The wine menu is full of wonderful wines that are priced from $30 to $50.

The food was below par. The butter chicken was just drowned in a tomato sauce that tasted almost like tomato paste - not anyway near what butter chicken should be. The naan was just like you could buy at Publix - certainly not made in the tandoor like you would expect in an Indian restaurant. The dal was warm and didn't seem fresh.

With the cost of the dishes ordered you would expect much better quality. In Toronto we would pay half the price and get better quality.

Very disappointed and will not recommend or return.

The high-end Indian cuisine is worth the trip to 21 spices. You can choose the heat level of the food, but even if you choose mild, it is rich with flavor and spices. Fantastic food and fantastic service. They were very good at accommodating and elderly member of our party who needed special assistance to use their ladies room. Truly excellent service

After three visits , the first fabulous I thought that I had discovered a gem. What happened,? suddenly the food is a little under par . My Samosas were soft and the sauce tart , the popadoms tasted stale and the chicken korma average. Oh dear ! Please step up and put this right . I love Indian cuisine and want to return . You are a great chef and I want to support you. Will come back in a month and hopefully the wind will be blowing in the right direction.

I requested 21 Spices for my birthday because it is one of my favorite places in Naples. My husband did not think he liked Indian food...well he craves the Tikka Masala from 21 Spices! He always wants to go to 21 Spices now!

I dined with two other people and we all ordered our main dishes MEDIUM. Unfortunately all three dishes were VERY mild. Our server offered to change the dishes but we had already eaten a good portion, so we declined.
Not to your usual standard!

The service was super slow and the food was not good at all. Not sure what happened. We went there last year and loved the food and ambience so wanted to try it again and had a really bad dining experience primarily because of the food that was not tasty at all. Too much salt, poor flavors. Just overall not good at all. I expected a lot more.

An excellent choice to sample a range of Middle Eastern cuisine. The staff is friendly and helpful in selecting among lesser known alternatives. While it is not the eastern Mediterranean and is located in a shopping center, the ambiance is upscale and authentic. It is an excellent choice for a group of family and friends.
