About Britannia Spice
Shelley Gilbert - 05/11/2013
We enjoyed the delicious Indian food.
Gordon Smith - 09/01/2012
We booked Britannia Spice on Sunday through 5pm.co.uk and what a great choice that was. We selected the £15.00 for two course offer. Though they had Tom Kar Gai on their set menu we asked for Tom Yum and they obliged without a fuss. My wife had this beautifully flavoured Thai dish While I had the traditional Assorted Vegetable Pakora which was very crispy and and tasty. It is not often you get a choice of Thai and Indian food under one roof. The Amer Murgh cooked with mango pulp in a mild sauce was ideal for my wife who does not like much spicy food. I had Harrey Masaley Ka Gosht wich is tender pieces of lamb cooked in a spicy sauce, which I enjoyed very much. The waiters very helpful and attentive and served with a smile. We liked the nautical themed interior design. I must add that the wine list was very extensive and professionally done. Overall an excellent choice of restaurant and we will be back.
