We travel from SE London
To eat there we don’t get there that often as it’s a bit of a trek
But we are always recognised and given a great welcome when we do
Lovely little eatary
Well recommended
Nothing is ever to much trouble and very reasonably priced
And really good sized portions
We always end up with a doggy bag

I am astonished that this restaurant has so many good reviews on Open Table. I cannot believe that in a city where good Indian food is abundant, this restaurant is so spectacularly bad. The staff are excellent, the service good and the ambiance fine, but the food is some of the blandest and poorly prepared Indian I have had in a long time. The tandoori mixed grill was bland and barely warm, let lone sizzling. The vegetables were much the same. The naan had been sitting around under a warming light and we had to send it back and ask for some that had been made fresh. The papadums were also tasteless. So - until they fire the chef and kick the culinary standard up by several large notches, don't believe what you read about this place and avoid it. It is an annoying waste of money.

Food was fantastic, unusual dishes and very friendly staff. We had a discount but would have been worth full price without it.
Would happily go back / order as a takeaway

Disappointed by the service which was indifferent to say the least. The owner was far more engaged with the various regulars coming in for take away. Food was mediocre. Wouldn't return.

Small place, average ambience, sat next to the door so cold air kept drafting in. Food was very poor. Can't understand all the excellent reviews but maybe because we only ate vegetarian. Aloo chat was more like masala potatoes, the saag paneer was full of sugar and cream. It was white and yellow, not green. When questioned was told that's how they make it unless ordering spicy. Offered to remake but we ordered Kadai Paneer instead which was better but full of oil. Service was good but I ouldn't go back again because of the food.

We visited Palace Spice after finding it on Opentable. The food is excellent and so reasonably priced, especially with the Opentable offer. House white is only £12.50p a bottle and is very drinkable. Service was also very good from a friendly young waiter and we couldn't believe the bill at the end. It was so good we went back a few nights after and would certainly revisit and strongly recommend. A great find in Clapham Junction!

Excellent food, very clean and great value with the Toptable deal. The waiters are friendly and helpful, without constantly coming over to you. Coming from Indian heritage, I am familiar with cooking with spices and I have not found a better Indian Restaurant in Battersea (and I have tried most of them).

The food here was great! I had a king prawn special which was spicy with coconut exactly what I love, and my partner had the naga lamb which was also excellent - definitely recommend it if you like something spicy. The food was great and excellent value. We used 50% open table deal and there was nothing on the menu excluded. Would definitely recommend!!

Booked at the very last minute at 10.15pm. we were welcomed very nicely.
The food was really nice, only the starter arrived cold, everything else was really good.

Not pricey but nice
