Ziggy's Spice House is one of those names that seems to have been around forever. Think of a curry house in Halifax and the chances are that Ziggy's will spring to mind and so it should. After all, it is the oldest curry house in town and when competition has come and gone, Ziggy has had the foresight to change with the time. He has also given to the community over the years, contributing to local charities and sports teams.
Ziggy's also has the honour of being the only 5 Star Hygiene awarded Indian Restaurant in Halifax. When you talk to Ziggy he talks with passion about his business as well as the town he lives in.
So what makes the place special? Not one thing but many.
An expansive eating place that boasts an opportunity to be a meeting place, a place for kids parties, free WiFi, a fully licensed bar and most uniquely, healthy options curries.
His most recent venture has been to offer an all you can eat buffet every night as well as retaining the full Ziggy's menu. I took my son along to sample the buffet and sample for myself what had already been recommended to me by a friend. The buffet offers a great range of vegetarian dishes as well as meat dishes. Within this range are some of those healthy options for those of us who are watching our figures! The service was second to none and my son was given plenty of help in deciding what to eat. At 8 he is only just beginning to appreciate Indian Cuisine but that's okay. Ziggy's offers a full children's menu so that non-curry dishes can be mixed with other types of food. Ziggy brought out some freshly cooked fish masala for us to sample, freshly prepared and delicious. He then shared this with other diners in the restaurant, such is the personal touch of the Spice House.
The main courses are of a high quality; sometimes buffets can suffer from them being pushed out quickly, losing their individuality. Not here. The standard remains as high as you would expect on the main ala carte menu. So, an excellent buffet in outstanding surroundings with great service and a personal touch from the owner. What more could you ask for? Dessert? Oh yes, again a choice of ice creams, cheesecake, gateaux or fresh fruit!
