The BFM had heard that the Tale of Spice was the no 2 out of 609 restaurants in Belfast (Tripadvisor) so decided to pay a visit.

I have to say that it looked very good decor wise and so it should be as it’s been open since August this year. The joint owners are Indian, front of House is Sunil and chef in kitchen being the other owner. Both have worked in Indian Ocean restaurants and have vast experience. Also the two waiters are Indians,so this is a genuine Indian Restaurant and not Pakistani or Bangladeshi, so food is 100% genuine Indian.
I went for the lunch special which is 2 courses for £7.95. I chose the mixed vegetable and mince lamb samosas (2 pc) served with salad and a lovely red sweet and sour sauce.
For main course I had the chicken jalfrezi and nan. I must admit it was the best Jalfrezi I have had and the nan was fluffy and accompanied the jalfrezi very well. The Jalfrezi was just hot (chilli) enough and there was ample sauce,along with mushrooms, green peppers and onion,just like a Jalfrezi should be.
Chef made me fresh cardamom infused rice pudding topped with chopped almonds. Delicious way to finish the meal.
It is a new restaurant and in my opinion one of the best authentic Indian restaurants in the greater Belfast area. I would thoroughly recommend it,especially to take advantage of their lunch time specials.
It’s a great place to lunch in for any offices nearby or even Dundonald hospital.
There is ample car parking there, also cinema and a kids play area all in the complex. They do have a kids menu, so why not make a day or night of it!!!
Once again the BFM shares the food love!!! Ciao for now
