Been here several times and it's my default place to go for a proper quality curry with family and friends.
Menu is extensive and varied and not just the normal korma, madras, tikka etc etc but real local specialities from the chef's own location.
The food contains no artificial colour or preservatives and is all natural. Staff are always very pleasant and polite.
If you want a really good curry in the Beckenham/Bromley area you can not go wrong with The Spice Society if you can get a table.
An update. Still frequenting Spice Society. They had a sticky patch a couple of months back but, even then, it was still head and shoulders above the rest. Now they're back on top form and the restaurant is packed on Fridays and Saturdays from about 7:30 until 10, which might be why they are finally pushing forward with their long-awaited expansion plans, which should help the place when it's full.
No quibbles but one tip; all the dishes are about half a level milder than they should be. For instance, medium-hot dishes turn up medium. Bear that in mind when you order, though when my mother-in-law wanted her food spicier it was punched up without any issue.
Spice Society is top quality.
Buffet is a bit pricey, but excellent variety and flavor.
