Spice of India is truly a sophisticated Indian restaurant situated in the heart of Rodney Bay. With over 20 years in the industry, Chef Adil has travelled across the Atlantic Ocean creating scintillating dishes to satisfy the palates of eager patrons throughout the Caribbean. Along with his Sous chef, Chef Adil celebrates his love of cooking by bringing a modern flair to the ancient, traditional Indian Tandoor technique of cooking to St. Lucia. Diners can enjoy watching the Chefs in action in the open display kitchen or gain personal lessons from the chef himself.
Get a feel for India in the uniquely designed restaurant with arts and artefacts imported from many regions of India. These give an authentic ambiance that one looks for in a specialty restaurant, whilst succumbing to the wiles of fine dining. We pay homage to traditional Indian culture by offering daily changing lunch menus that are served in a family style setting. You and your guests get to share, rather than choose from an array of foods served in front of you, ensuring that your taste buds are deliciously satisfied.
At Spice of India we are clarifying the misconception of Indian cuisine to be greasy, hot and spicy. The authenticity of the flavours are kept by utilising the freshest of ingredient and keeping the food clean to its true nature. The dishes served can be individually tailored to suit your palate by kindly informing our servers as to how mild or spicy you’d like to enjoy your food.
Come and enjoy our cuisine that includes traditional favourites and new delectable choices. We’re open from Wednesday to Monday from 12 Noon to 4 PM for Lunch, last order at 3:45 PM and from 6 PM till the last guest leaves for Dinner. We also do private functions on or off site and gift vouchers are available for purchase.
Spice of India, serving great Indian fare.
Chef Adil Sherwani
When asked, Chef Adil always says that his love of cooking started at an early age in his moms’ kitchen in India. Little did he know that his love of combining the freshest of ingredients, with his creative flair for presentation would take him to some upscale restaurants in India and abroad, and all the way to the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. There he met his lovely wife and decided that this was the place to realise his dream of owning his first restaurant. Chef Adil, as he is fondly called by many, has always been a chef with a difference in the sense of stressing the importance of communication in this industry. He loves to go out amongst his diners sharing his vision, his love of food, getting their feedback and personalising scrumptious meals to suit the palate of his discerning clients. He believes that this communication is the key to creating a better harmony between the expectation of the guest and the final product which reflects the passion and love of both parties.
Shortly after opening, Spice of India was rated number one restaurant on the island by independent reviewers on Tripadvisor; a placement it still enjoys to date. This is largely due to his philosophy that Indian cuisine should be prepared using a very clean and fresh approach to ancient recipes where the taste and flavours become the most enjoyable authentic Indian cuisine one can ever consume. This approach mixed with a dynamic team of servers in the restaurant, trained personally by him, has become a formula for success. He is now looking towards the bigger picture and hopes to carry his vision of giving diners great food, excellent personalised service, at affordable prices, to other cuisines.
