I *love* Palace Spice, we've had many a great curry there, including one a few years ago where they catered effortlessly for a group of 18 of us on a pretty raucous NYE. And they've seen off many other Indian eateries too. But yeah, from what I can gather, Joannas was called something else at first.

Hang on, is that where the before-my-time-up-here Smokey's was?

Was a big fan of smokies too as well but their vegetable side dishes used to be a bit samey carrots & purple cabbage ! But I used to get air miles at Smokies which was a big plus for me !

I went to primary school (All Saints) with somebody whose parents ran or owned Smokey's.

We had a lovely meal here last night, it was packed to the gills as usual but they found us a table within 15 minutes. Swift, friendly service (the older lady remembered that I like some extra balsamic with my salad and brought it unprompted) and the home made tomato sauce with the poplette was fabulous as usual. Great Montepulciano by the glass too, far better than your average house red :)

Love Lorenzo. It's our first choice every time for lunch. Lovely plates of pasta or pizzas for a fiver with garlic bread or salad. Total bargain.


Didn't know they do lunch - will give that a try ASAP. I have had some great meals in here over the years, nice atmosphere and of course good food too.

I've eaten here a couple of times and think it's a great mid-week alternative to cooking at home. The food is cheap, tastes home made and there is a great authentic atmosphere. Busy even on a Tuesday night so there's lots of others who agree!
