Best Indian food ever! – This is the greatest place. It doesn't look like much, but the owners are really friendly and go out of their way to make sure you have a good experience. And the food is absolutely the best anywhere. It's more traditional Indian food, so there's a lot of stuff on the menu that you might not have seen other places, but the usual stuff is there too. You can get it spicy or mild - I usually just ask how they think it should be made and trust the chef! I go here whenever I can, and anyone who skips it is missing out.
Super delicious – My favorite place in Towson bar none. Lunch buffet is cheap and diverse. Dinner specials are glorious. Try the Gobi Manchuri!
Amazing food – I love Indian food and have tried a lot of it, but now I don't think I could bring myself to eat at any of my old favorites if I could possibly make it to Cafe Spice instead. This isn't just the best Indian food I've ever had - which it is - but it's some of the best food I've ever had - period. I've been three times now, and each time I've ordered something different on the menu - and every time it's been better than what I've gotten at other Indian places - whether in Baltimore or elsewhere. I really couldn't believe some little (relatively poorly decorated) place in Towson would be such a hidden treasure, but it is. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Best Indian Food in Baltimore – It sounds like hyperbole: Cafe Spice has the best Indian food I've ever eaten. I've been to many Zagat-rated places in New York and London and D.C. and all the usual suspects in Bmore that get most of the acclaim. The small restaurant in Towson with the pedestrian name beats all of them. Easily.
The food is amazing--spicy but not overpowering, light but not insubstantial. What attracted me first was the incredible range of vegetarian options. As a veggie, you're usually limited to familiar fare at places like Akbar or the Ambassador: palak paneer, malai kofta, etc. Cafe Spice has a host of vegetables and curries from all over India, most of which I'd never seen before. If you are not a vegetarian there are plenty of carnivorous specialties, but I would definitely encourage you to glance at the vegetarian menu.
The breads are freshly baked and fluffy. That's a cliche, but you really will taste the difference between the reheated nan we're used to. Prices are in line with the competition, and the dining room, while retaining some of the quirky Korean flourishes of the departed Purim Oak, is deceptively spacious and warm.
Finally, every review must mention the service. The owners, a genial Indian couple, are often on hand to greet customers and chat about every aspect of the restaurant.
I HIGHLY recommend Cafe Spice despite its modest exterior and inauspicious location. Seasoned Indian eaters will be surprised, newcomers will be tantalized, and vegetarians will be thankful for a change of pace. This is the best, most consistent Indian menu in Baltimore if not the country.
