This place is outstanding. I have been to many restaurants in the UK. The home of a beer and curry. The Great Spice knocks them out of the field. I have been here many times. I have experienced the vast menu I can not find a fault with the food. Now let’s talk about the team excellent service, always made to feel welcome, fantastic people. All I can say is get down the the Great Spice Bureta you will never regret it.
