    It seems whatever we select during reservation in OpenTable app is not passed on to the restaurant - I had selected Anniversary as the occasion but looks like either it wasn't passed on to restaurant or restaurant doesn't use that information.

    Food was tasty. Could have done with lesser butter though. Was served beer which was more than 2 months past expiry. Manager was kind enough to take it off the check. Service was good, though not exceptional. Being charged $8 for water was bummer. I dont think we will return. I would recommend it as a one time try.

    Very poor substandard food quality Quantity of food was very less Chicken Biriyani had poor quality chicken/very very huge and bulky Several other dishes including naan was so dry and rigid… not worth the premium money The SMART water bottle gets charged as ‘VOSS water’ with $8. + 18% gratuity and NJ sales tax … $10+ for drinking water is just insane ripoff Service was sub-par.. had to request raitha multiple times Only positive was the ambiance and the robot service(food delivery). Bottom line, it’s NOT worth paying top dollars.

    We had an amazing experience at Deccan Spice! The service was incredibly attentive without being intrusive and the wine list was not only superb, but the wine service was spot on. This alone would draw me back, but in addition the food was fantastic and executed flawlessly by our robot waitress Jessica. Oh yea, did I mention they have robot food runners! A real trip.

    Food was really good. The only complaint is, the lights were not working over our table. It was a birthday and mother’s day celebration together so we were hoping to get some good pictures. But over all, a good place that offers unique Indian dishes and fast service.

    Very bad experience, super spicy food even when we did not ask for it; They said menu needs updating; Drinks ordered were not even cold enough; Water is a rip-off; Arrogant manager; The owner had to step in; Overfall - upscale feel with very basic food and service. Even flavors missing!

    Literally the best Indian food in Edison NJ, which is a bold statement. From classics such as Saag Paneer to fusion items like Manchurian cauliflower, to avant garde takes on other cuisines like Lobster Bisque, their chef nails them all. This is one of those places where you put a bite in your mouth and wonder how exactly the chef managed to get exactly that combination of spices into each mouthful. Sweet, spicy, savory. Surprising flavors, perfect textures. Vegetables are always at just that soft snap, and meats have the resilient but tender mouth feel that speaks to long slow time on low heat gently melting together. The decor is just right for a date night with your significant other, definitely worthy of the spiffy outfit. They have a full bar with both American standards and Indian cocktails. Sadly, service is the only area not top-notch at Deccan Spice. Their servers seem overworked and a bit undertrained. Indeed management spoke of labor challenges - quite common going into 2022 and out of the COVID pandemic.We've experienced a fair amount of delay and confusion on orders and overall service. Prices are moderately high, but no more than you'd expect to pay for a fine dining meal in, say New Brunswick or Cranberry. It's a rare treat to find a restaurant that can execute so well on so many different dimensions. In a town known for excellent Indian eateries like Moghul and Sukhadia, the bar is set high for outstanding Indian cuisine. Deccan Spice surely delivers.

    This is the worst Indian restaurant I have ever been to in a long time. We went there to celebrate an occasion. First the drinks were served wrong, then the French fries that we ordered for our son were replaced with cold sweet potato fries. The manager on the floor tried to mull the issue due to an untrained server, however I believe it’s the Chef who sneaked the sweet potato fries as the normal fries were finished. This itself shows the ethics of the kitchen. Upon complaining and asking for the bill, they even came in quick and took away our plates in which we were still eating chicken tikka. Absolutely nightmare experience and price for 2 drinks, 1 water and a chicken tikka was astronomical. I suggest the fellow eaters to absolutely avoid this place. Complete Rip off!

    Go there at your own risk – not worth the $$$$ The good: -Food is okay at best -Ambiance is good -Bar Tender was nice and cared about peoples’ preferences and made good mix drinks. The Bad: -Their attitude sucks, when I called to make a reservation – was rudely told to do it online -When I called to increase the # of people in my party, was rudely told to ‘make reservations online’ and I had to repeat myself 3 times that instead of 14 we were going to be 15 people and that I wasn’t calling to make a reservation -They don’t want to serve you tap water – Seriously. They sell you $8 (+tax +gratuities) bottles of water. I always drink tap water and I haven’t ever been told that tap isn’t an option (prior to yesterday, well there is always a first). We aren’t in Hyderabad or Chennai where tap water isn’t safe to consume. -Service is mediocre (what I expect at a $$ restaurant, when I am at a $$$$ restaurant – I expect a lot better) -I get that restaurant have to charge a cakeage fee, but that has to be reasonable. In this case it was $5 per slice. But they insisted on and charged for the entire table although only 5-6 slices were cut and served by them. -You won’t believe how they brought in the cake and didn’t let my wife even touch the cake. Or for family members to feed her a bite. As soon as she blew it, they almost forcefully took it away. I felt this restaurant doesn’t care about their client’s satisfaction and it is about them making more $s. Any business can charge whatever they want, but then please deliver service and quality which you are charging for. Sorry but I won’t be going back and I won’t be recommending this place to my friends and family.

    Food was too expensive vis a vis quality. Too much use of spices. You can’t eat curry with a fork and when I asked for spoon, the soup spoon was given. Staff was nice and courteous. A very bad value for money. Will not go again.
