Durham >Spice & Curry
Spice and Curry, as promised, is "sublime and beautiful." When I want a decadent Navaratana Kurma simmered in heavy cream and even heavier spices, I'd be amiss to look anywhere else. There are at least 5 Indian places that are closer to my house than Spice and Curry, but the trek is completely worth it. I prefer ordering off the menu, but the lunch buffet is superior to most, with many more vegetarian options and a higher than average basic spice level. The samosas aren't too dry and the mango lassi is perfectly cooling. What can I say about the crisp, yet soft garlic naan except "mmm." I'm an Indian food fiendess, as my reviews might show. If you're looking for a light meal, then you should look elsewhere, but if you're looking for a light meal then Indian food isn't your best bet anyway. Go to Spice & Curry when you need to bliss out on mind altering spices and rich, luxuriant sauces.
One of the best lunch Buffet in RTP, You have both Veg & non Veg Dishes, too many choices of dishes. Even in Briyani they so many variety in it.
You have go for dinner to try different variety of choices.
S&C NowaDays. I have been to S&C many times. But nowadays It has changed. Taste gone bad. Service very bad. Oil they use on chilli chicken ,poori and tandoori chicken smells bad. May be old oil. They are reusing, that too on peak hours(sunday after noon). I wonder how much stock of bad oil these people have :). On lunch buffet, they intentionally delay the refills. I have the experience of waiting more than 30mins for some items. Still I didnt get that. If you think the preparation may take time for some items, they do this for fruits too. I dont think it will take more than 15mins to cut a cantaloupe. I think this is how they match the so called reduced buffet price.
Best indian Food in RTP.
My family is from India and we really enjoy eating here. I will say that the lunch buffet on weekdays is a little Americanized. But if you order off the menu you get the real deal. The weekend buffet is as good as ordering off the menu any day. Weekday lunches are cater to the RTP lunch crowd and the evening and weekends to the Indian Community.
If you want only South Indian or only Vegetarian then go to Udipi Cafe in Cary. Both restaurants are owned by the same person.
The food is flavorful and authentic.
Super Buffet !!. Buffet was like one of those Las Vegas ones. It has a lot of items on the buffet. Most of the dishes were good. Rich and a fulfilling experience. Their authentic South Indian delicacies have a lot to portray about Indian dining.
Still the best Indian food in Durham. Very tasty!. The buffet during lunch is good with many choices but even the same dishes eaten at dinner pack more flavor and spice. Very good food the best in town. Very many vegetarian choices!
Spice & Curry has gone rogue. It's like the Twilight Zone at Spice & Curry. The food isn't as good as it used to be. A Buy-one-get-one-free coupon suddenly equals random dollar amounts taken off with no explanation. Not only has the waitstaff forgotten the concept of refilling water and providing freaking RICE with your food, but they also lost the aptitude to understand English as well. And the ability to get change after you've already paid them for your meal. Plus little kids will run around and whap your white friends in the face with balloons. Oh, and the parking lot has suddenly been taken over by the cast of 4 Fast 4 Furious. Put simply, it's a nightmare,
Best Indian Food In Triangle Area. I have reviewed all the recomendation before my lunch to Spice & Curry. Now Food is excellent and customer service is improved than earlier management. I found that cheffs had highly educated hotel managment.
Very poor customer service and professionalism..
We (about 5 people group) used to visit this restaurant often during lunch hours but since management changed from early 2008, the quality is no more.
Food is okay, not bad. Taste varies for regular daily dishes, no consistency.
Hall area (Function room) is spacious but Air Condition does not work and management said it is "centrally controlled" and they have "no control" switching it on. I think they have saved some bucks on power bill !! Not recommended for parties. Guests were sweating when we hosted a party for 20 people.
Nothing professional about service. New Staff is inexperienced and lacks politeness.
Best Indian so-far. My wife and I love this place. We've gone for dinners and the weekend buffet. I agree with an earlier reviewer that the quality at the buffet is not as good. However, you get to taste a little of everything. When we go for dinner we let loose and order different kinds of naan and appetizers. Everything is so good. We are very happy with the service. It feels like you are the only one there. They wait on you hand and foot and make you feel like you are very welcome there. The atmosphere is a come as you are kind of place. It is clean and comfortable. I can't recommend anything in particular because I get something different everytime I go. Everything I've had has been 5 star quality though. Give this place a try-you won't be dissapointed.
