About Sea Spice

Sea Spice is a unique amalgamation of exotic Indian cooking within the quintessentially British coastal setting of Aldeburgh. Taking lead from the ancient Spice Route and Aldeburgh's historic role as a valued Tudor port, this new gourmet restaurant unites local Suffolk produce with classic Indian flavours originating some 4,000 miles away. Honouring the breadth and complexities of Indian cooking, Sea Spice offers guests an array of regional dishes from Goan inspired seafood dishes, to tandoor-grilled meats and traditional fragrant curries.

We have been meaning to try Sea Spice for a long while. We won’t be back! Dreadful atmosphere with full lights on, Spanish (?) waiters who didn’t know anything about Indian food and weird 1920s music - nothing complimented each other. The lamb rogan josh was tasty but everything was incredibly overpriced. We didn’t realise the wi W we ordered was only 8%...we might have missed this on the menu but wasn’t what we wanted. We arrived in a Saturday evening at 8.30pm to be told we were the last table of the evening! We felt everyone was waiting for us to raft as fast as possible! Not the most welcoming greeting. It was early January but the rest of Aldeburgh was heaving and the Sea Spice only a quarter full.

I ate here a couple of years ago and the food was completely amazing. Maybe my expectations were too high but this time the menu felt limited, we were seated at a table of two by the kitchen door rather than given a larger table by the window- the restaurant was not busy and our dining experience would have been enhanced with a better placed table. The food was tasty but, in my opinion, overpriced. The staff were excellent

Have previously been theSeaspice and had a great experience especially the taste of the food , on this occasion food was quite bland and I have had better shop bought curries. Very overpriced for the quality

My friends and I went to Sea Spice to celebrate the evening before my 50th, and we had a delicious meal. Fresh, delicious, different and authentic. Beautiful decor and ambience, attentive and friendly waiting staff. Welcome presence of the chef discretely wandering around the restaurant. I have been recommending to friends and family!

Food good, service appalling. 30 minutes after being sat down, I had to call a waiter over and ask for a drink and to order the meal. The meal arrived before the drink!!

Food comes first, and it’s wonderful. Great blend of the traditional and the innovative. Decor is very handsome. The staff are charming and efficient. Maybe a bit pricier than the average Indian restaurant, but then it’s way above average in every respect.
