Lahore is the most populous city in Pakistan after Karachi, and a global ‘megacity’. Not surprisingly, its food culture is strong, diverse, and redolent with the spices of the Indian subcontinent and South Asia in general. In Bournemouth’s town centre, up along the Old Christchurch Road, Spice of Lahore is representing the culinary genre with suitable aplomb, offering a menu packed with tandoori dishes, traditional curries and Lahori balti, plus chef’s specialties that come highly recommended to first-time diners looking to test the (hot) waters at this local curry house. The Lahore Special is particularly good, marinated chicken cooked in the tandoor oven and cooked again with masala and bhuna spice blends. Centrally located and with a good reputation, book ahead to avoid disappointment.
Friendly service, decent food, can bring own alcohol to keep cost down. Accommodating regarding tweaks to menu. Busy early on in the evening which was encouraging.
Being used to home cooked Indian food and very fussy when it comes to Indian restaurants, I must say Spice of Lahore had excellent food! Definitely one of the best I’ve had in the country. Good service and you can also choose what you’d like to drink as you can bring your on bottle.
Excellent service, food and price. Will definitely go again and would thoroughly recommend. Portion sizes are good, and if you can't finish your meal the staff will be happy to put your leftovers in a bar to take home.
