REVIEWS OF Spice It Up IN Alaska

Noah Johnson

Easily one of my favorite restaurants in town. Not only is the food so delicious that I will consume it to the point my stomach will no longer stretch, but the owner/head chef is terrific and made sure my whole family was taken care of; he brought extra plate of food for my kids at no cost. I will definitely be a regular at this establishment. The pricing is very reasonable as well.

Sara Hudson

Fantastic! The food, the staff, the portion sizes... They even serve cauliflower rice for those looking to reduce carbohydrate intake. Everything we sampled was excellent. If you like this type of food, you're in for a good time; if you've never tried it, this is the perfect place to start as the owner will personally work to find a dish that will appeal to you. And their Naan (a type of flat bread) is out of this world! We will be back!

Justin Harvey

Great addition to Fairbanks. Always friendly. Food is fast. Chicken curry rice is fantastic, and so are the lamb gyros. I've never liked lamb, sheep, or goat products due to the strong flavor. Whatever Tariq does to the lamb is great. I've probably eaten more lamb from Spice It Up than I have through the rest of my life combined. Try it.

Manogna Telikapalli

This place is closed until end of September. The owner of the store put a post outside the store.

Robert Carpenter

Top notch Gyros

Victoria Avery

A great place to grab a quick meal. There are options to suit most any diet. The owner goes above and beyond in customer service. So great food, great customer service at a great price--I can't say enough good things. Just go!

Ginger Wookie

Go here. Eat Food. Enjoy the good life choice.

Anne Holmes

shahab aria

In total recommended and it is the only Pakistani restaurant in Fairbanks Location,design and plastic fork and dishes was not great at all. quality of food was not bad, chicken was dry (maybe because it rest there for a long time) and instead of sliced lamb meat, tbey used choped lamb meat that had a lower quality. Foods was oily but taste was Okey. Price for quality and amount of food that we received was high (but normal for Fairbanks standard, because there is no competition here in Fairbanks). Staff was very helpful and kind.

Orren Hyatt

A surprisingly good change of pace for food in town! This restaurant acts as a soft of fast food Indian restaurant while also supplying a quality meal! I ordered the Lamb and Rice plus a garlic naan bread and was given huge portions that I could not get enough of! I wouldn't eat here every day but I do enjoy their food!

Tim Hess

The food here is absolutely the best!!! I am always craving their Butter Chicken with rice and the bonus of this dish is that it is gluten-free! I love coming here and the food is 110% authentic!

Cydos Delevantai

The food was great, the service was prompt and courteous, and the staff went out of their way to provide a low carb lettuce wrap option. The visit was well worth it.

Shaima Awan

It was a very nice place to get halal food. We really enjoyed it. Must try garlic naan!

This is one of the best indian food places i have eaten at. I tried the lamb rice and butter chicken and they were both amazing. I barely liked the butter chicken more.

Christina Evans

Great owner yummy butter chicken

matt nations

Beef kabob and butter chicken combo!!!!

Adrian Ramos

Great tasting food

David Matz

Spice It Up features a variety of Indian and middle eastern dishes served food truck style. In other words, there is a limited menu of food that is on the menu for the day. Food is served quickly by friendly staff. They will happily provide samples if you are unfamiliar with a dish. There is plenty of seating, although it is a counter service restaurant. It is a great option to the traditional fast food.

Tyler Bell

Consistently wonderful food, and an incredibly welcoming staff! I just can't get enough of this place, at the prices it becomes more of a treat than an everyday go to but they aren't bad at all and when you taste that food you'll be happy you went!

Mercedes Anderson

A must go. Tariq is amazing and his staff are wonderful too. If it’s a new cuisine, you can taste test everything because it’s already prepared - cafeteria style. Get one of each of the naan styles too.

Ed Casey

Always great!

Ramprasad Gopalakrishnan

Vegan friendly. Vegetarian friendly. Great option for someone looking for some Indian food. The food is tasty and served hot. Note the food can be little fatty.

Tom M

Food is awesome and the staff is super friendly. After eating here a bunch of times I want to update the review. Not only is the dining area clean but I noticed the employees consistently wash their hands and glove up before handling the food. It's great seeing conscientious cleaning habits. They're always smiling and courteous and it's very welcoming. The food has been consistently great. It's served quickly and is always tasty. There's a tent and outdoor seating now too.

Nabil Al Nahin Chowdhury

The food is good. Not as spicy as the name suggests

Joseph Sanders

Food was absolutely awesome. The staff was friendly, and the service was very fast. Got to speak with the owner, whose a very genuine guy. He takes a lot of pride in his restaurant. Also, just happened to have a conversation with a health inspector who says they run a very clean and organized kitchen. I'll be eating here again!


Great fresh food and fast service!

Matthew Raymond

Wonderful flavors and quick service. We had been to the food truck before and this was our first trip to the restaurant. We will be back again for the chicken curry rice, gyro, garlic naan, and the lamp/veggie/bean soup

Amazing spot. Tariq is all about his customers. You'll often spot him randomly speaking to his patrons, ensuring their satisfaction. Amazing food, amazing service. Make sure to visit if you can.

Chris Mandery

Amazingly scrumptious, savory food. Tariq is friendly and accommodating

Traci Butz

Best best beat!

Heather Welch

Yumm! My husband and I ate here for a lunch/dinner today and absolutely loved every bite! The Tandoori chicken, butter chicken, and lamb were all excellent!! The Naan bread was perfectly baked, and the Samosa was delicious! The service was fast, but more importantly they are all very friendly, after the line died down the owner even came out to everyone and asked how we enjoyed the food. The portions were also very generous! I will highly recommend this to anyone!! Thank you so much Spice It Up!! Awesome job!!

Dallas Dale Leavitt

Awesome service came from the Mat-Su valley. Well worth the trip the food is amazing!

This place is so great! The service and food is always wonderful and the owner is always adding new dishes and upgrading the restaurant. One of my favorite places to eat in Fairbanks!

Jonathan Worthen

Butter chicken and garlic naan are delicious.

Alex Klinkhamer

Delicious! Though the tandoori may have given me food poisoning...

David Jones

We’ve been residents of Fairbanks for about three months now and have eatin out about 5 or 6 times since arriving, every time we have been disappointed. The taste just isn’t very good at the places we have tried, for whatever reason. Couple poor taste with expensive pricing and it makes for a very poor experience. That was certainly not the case here. I don’t care about price, I don’t care about seating for large groups, I don’t care about cleanliness, when the food tastes this good, it doesn’t matter. Do not miss an opportunity to check this place out. If anyone rates this place anything less than 4 stars they are either crazy or in competition with them.

Glen Collinsworth

Excellent lamb Gyros

melisa kelsey

Great food and hospitality

Sherina Anderson

Oh my goodness. AMAZING food. The service was great, and they have free samples to help you decide what you want. I'm definitely going back.

Mallory Hulbert

I LOVED this place. So tasty!!! Wish I could eat here more often but I'm no longer local.

Rebecca Lawrence

Best food in town, hands down! Has anyone ever had any leftovers because I don't think it's possible. I recommend everything on the menu and don't miss out on the chicken when Tariq grills it!!

Matt Meissner

Amazing naan bread! If you want (what i believe) to be some of the best indian style food in fairbanks this is your place!

Jonathan Fennell

Amazing food, faiirly affordable pricing

Thomas Bowcutt

Great food and service, just the right amount of spice and amazing flavor.

dru h.

Spice It Up is my new favorite place to get GREAT food in Fairbanks. Everything is always fresh, hot, and delicious and the owner is always so sweet and attentive.

Wyatt Wilson

Gyro are awesome

Kris Nichols

Good food, but a lot of waste. Order put in a styrofoam container with a plastic fork whether you dine in or carry out. Would be nice to see reusable plates and eating utensils for dine in customers.

Tracy Asicksik

Great customer service, with great food and open options.

Ryan Metzger

Excellent local restaurant. I love the lamb rice and the samosas. I highly reccomend this restaurant!

david rodriguez

good but the guys who worked the food truck did a whole lot better then the blonde girl and the other guy. SPICE IT UP NEED TO STEP IT UP.

Michael Ervin

Awesome food! The Tandori Chicken is my favorite, the Lamb rice is my wife's and the Naan is fresh from the oven! They have some of the best flavor in town!

Nichole Benardo

Excited about this place! Fairbanks needs something like this.

Mary Lou Borden

Perfect every time.

Cynthia Wilson

Steve Floyd

Best Indian food in Alaska

Talyah Safir

Easily my new favorite place in town to eat, and the people are super nice.

Jeannie Laitinen

The food was amazing and the owner even came out to the table to ask how we liked the food.

Nita Desmond

Always a good experience. Big portions. Everything on the menu is delicious.

Nicholas Baker

The food is tremendous, we had the Tandori chicken and chicken curry, which includes a portion of salad, rice and spiced chicken all of which was very well cooked. The wait was non exsistent even with a steady stream of people. The only reason I gave them four stars instead of five is the pricing is a little high. Prices range from $10-$15 for the meals and the naan, which is absolutely delicious and fresh, is $5 a piece.

Mike S

Well done quick Indian lunch. Nothing fancy, but the lamb has great flavor, the service is quick, and this might be the best bargain in Fairbanks.

Pine App

It’s quite dirty,untidy. I saw the kitchen while going to washroom

Flynn McFarland

First impression: Wow that's a small menu. Second impression: Wow that's expensive for a gyro.. but hopefully it'll come with rice or something. Third impression: This is delicious but still expensive for what you get. $12 for a gyro a little bigger than a taco Bell chalupa and nothing else. I mean I get that it's Fairbanks and everything is expensive, but still.. I don't think I'll be back.

son of Liberty

Just like the food I miss so much from NYC. My favorite restaurant in all of Fairbanks.

Jeff er

Awesome curry

Michael Glassman

Very good food. A bit expensive. Service was quick. Not a lot of seating for large groups.

thomas Huddleston

This is by far the best place to have lunch in fairbanks. The lamb gyros are beyond amazing

Rusell Johnston

Great service and great food.

Hymavathi GV

Excellent Mediterranean and Indian food

Editha Bagoyo

Food is delicious, best in town, atmosphere is casual and great, servers are always nice and give great customer service... food portion differs with each server. One will give you half salad and half neat, another one will give you 1/4 salad with 3/4 meat. A bit pricey but the taste is worth it.

Misty Piech

Always amazing food and customer service.

Sebastian Ruiz

Amazing food and the employees and owner were really nice!!

David Joehnk

T your the man keep up the good food and service!

Joseph Krizek


Kweka Warner

The people and food was amazing ❤

Thomas Hudson

As a newcomer to Fairbanks, I was ecstatic to be introduced to Spice it Up by my coworkers. Tariq and his staff are fantastic, and the food is wonderful. They have a low-carb cauliflower rice option, which is an added bonus!


This food is amazing, its surely the quality of this comfy authentic food that makes us come back every time. The owner is so engaged with his customers and makes us feel so welcome. I have never had such amazing Mediterranean/India food in my life until I came here. The tandoori chicken, the lamb gyro and the seasoned naan is so fulfilling, flavorful, and seasoned with love and perfection. They are so considerate as well to my allergies. Just a great place to eat with family and friends and receive great customer service.

Chris & Jessi Morse

Wow my food was really good.
