    A thoroughly enjoyable meal! Extremely delicious food and fantastic service! Would recommend to all my friends. Only downside was it was a bit chilly inside but otherwise great. The thali dishes mean you can get a wide range of the different foods as well at good prices, especially with the taste card! "

    Really yummy food - but a quick warning that the taste card isn't applicable to the set menu. We'd booked a table stating we'd be using a taste card, and were only informed that we couldn't use it for the set menu when the bill arrived.
    Though it would have been nice to know this when we ordered, the food was still really delicious and plentiful. "

    We loved visiting Hop & Spice so are delighted to see it reopened in its new location and with a slight name change. The food and service is as good as we remember. The decor isn't quite as plush as the old venue and it could do with some pictures on the wall but it's the food and service that matters and both are superb. We'll be back soon. Book it now and enjoy. "
