Food and Drink

At Spice Deli we celebrate spices from India and the Middle East. We pride ourselves on creating everything (barring the fantastic sourdough bread from an artisanal bakery) in house.

At Spice Deli we are inspired by food of our childhood, our travels and seasonality.

We offer something for all our customers starting from hot pastries, breads and cakes that are baked daily by our pastry chef to go with your morning coffee or tea. At 8:30 we open our doors, and breakfast is on offer from our a la carte menu, which carries on till 3 pm every day.

You can find Indian classics such as anda bhurji and poha but also shakshuka and cilbir. By 11 am, an array of large platters of salads, cooked vegetables, grilled fish, and chicken are on offer to take away or to eat in at our two floor deli with 30 seats downstairs. We close at 5 pm everyday.

We also do catering and our space can be hired for a private party.

At Spice Deli, we only support other small businesses like us and we stock their products in our shop section upstairs-chutneys and pickles from Cheeky Food Co, Jams from Awani Bali, artisanal coffee from Vagabond Roasters and Sri Lankan tea from Kandula. Our meat is free range and our fish is sustainable sourced. Sourdough bread and croissants are from Margot Bakery.


At Spice Deli we want to take you and your guests on a culinary spice adventure! So let us take care of planning your menu, sourcing the ingredients and preparing your feast while you enjoy your guests. Based on our experience with running supperclubs, we can offer you a formally plated experience or for larger crowds, a buffet experience. We can create a menu according to your theme, budget and dietary requirements.  We can take care of all your food, including scrumptious desserts.

  • My dad and I visited Spice Deli for luknch this afternoon prior to a film down the road; I chose it as the reviews were fantastic and what a superb lunch we had! We shared a large selection of salads (tiptop fresh salads are displayed on the counter including courgette fritters and a perfect aubergine&turmeric combination) plus we added a harissa lamb roll. Every dish was made with attention to detail and absolutely not the one-size-fits-all flavouring which many restaurants employ. We then drank masala chai (yum) with a rose & pistacchio friand and a sticky cardamom & cinnamon bun oozing with deliciousness. Such attention to detail both food-wise and in the decor. Lastly, (at the risk of sounding even cheesier) the staff are not only lovely but also passionate about their restaurant. (18/02/20) View In Trip Advisor Review Click Here

    A real find just a few steps from the Finchley Road tube station. Amazing food with surprising ingredients. Try the Spiced Okra salad if you are there on Monday – who knew that okra could be so good? The Chicken Tandori was the best I have ever had and I have spent a lot of time in India. And the people there couldn’t be nicer. All in all a great experience. We went for lunch, but they are open mornings, too and, on Friday and Saturday they are open for dinner.

    Spice Deli opened earlier this year and we visit at least twice (sometimes three times!) a week for lunch or dinner because the food is so innovative, fresh and delicious. Most things are home made (including their ice creams and cakes) and the owners, Tarun and Kim, are so welcoming and friendly as are the rest of their staff. We love having them as our local in our neighbourhood. Jenny Te (02/07/19) View In Google Review Click Here

    This is one of my favourite local cafes which also does dinner on Friday and Saturday. Weekend brunches are excellent; wide choice of salads at lunch time; and dinner sees some little known Indian dishes. The cakes are scrumptious and the staff are welcoming and friendly. Good vegetarian choices. Well-behaved dogs are welcome. CFMM1959 (13/09/19) View In tripadvisor Review Click Here

    We’ve eaten at this restaurant a few times for lunch and supper. It has a really excellent range light lunch options and cakes during the day. My husband had the cod dish tonight and it was a really nice piece of fish, well cooked. I had the masala dal dish which was well spiced as always. The rose ice-cream for dessert was delicious. Service was good. This restaurant is just around the corner from Waitrose and is well worth a visit if you want a bite to eat after your shop.

    Delicious coffee, delicious food, lovely service, a wonderful spot. Don’t miss it! (And don’t be fooled by the small counter area, downstairs is huge so plenty of space!)

    On offer is delicious brunch items or a deli counter with amazing salads to eat in or take away. Lots of yummy cakes too! Julia Mandich (11/01/20) View In Google Review Click Here

    The best tiny neighbourhood cafe, great coffee, good and healthy options for lunch and super friendly staff. I urge you to go, because shops like these need to be supported! Forget the big chains that don’t need your money and support local unique stores!Christina Ioannou (13/02/20) View In Google Review Click Here

    No joke, my biggest regret in moving soon is no longer being across the street from this place. I’ve been here so many times. Food is always delicious, especially for someone like me who lives for spices. Coffee is amazing! And service very kind and attentive.Ekaterina Merabishvili (11/01/20) View In Google Review Click Here

    A friend brought me here for brunch. It is difficult to decide what to eat as everything is fresh and beautifully presented. The salads are remarkable. The cardamom cinnamon bun was out of this world. The staff are friendly and helpful. Once you visit here you will be hooked. Simply delicious!  A hidden Gem (03/07/19) View In Trip Advisor Review Click Here

    This place is great and a lovely addition for Finchley Toad area residents. Food is fabulous and good range of drinks. Friendly staff including the owners who are very hands on. Looks like limited seating on arrival but there is another floor so don’t be put off. Go! (05/06/19) View In Trip Advisor Review Click Here

    I live locally and finally got the chance to try Spice Deli. The flavour of every dish we tried was was absolutely delicious. The lamb roll unctuous and rich. All of the salads are packed with delights, healthy and mind blowingly flavourful. The service was friendly and impeccable. Spice Deli deserves to make it and damn, we feel so lucky to have such amazing place right up the road. Will be back again and again. WOW!!!!! Fantastic!

    Such a welcoming and friendly local business! Recommended by a friend who lives down the road and comes regularly – selection of daily salads and meat dishes is amazing and reasonably priced. Highly recommend the sweet corn fritters! Also do a brunch menu made to order of tasty and unusual dishes. Fancy opening a branch in Derby? Ellie S-B (15/02/19) View In Google Review Click Here
