The most delicious food at the best prices served with great care and consideration of the customer. Staff always friendly and helpful. Definitely the best food at a most reasonable cost. I am a regular and I often take friends who return time and time again.

This was our second visit to Palace Spice Battersea and, while we had enjoyable evening, felt the meal wasn't quite as good this time around. The chicken tikka massala was a disappointment. However, other items form the menu were very good.

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!
