“A touch of spice in the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

Just before christmas,on a very busy day,we had lunch at Red Spice Road.We were a large group of colleagues(with different cultural backround) and we had 2 extra people with us which were not accounted for in the booking.Staff was very helpful and managed to find a larger table for us.We had the $30 set lunch.In the 5 courses was something for everyone.It is tasty asian fusion food with a twist.(First time ever no one in the group complaint about the food)Drinks were bought directly from the bar.So there were no arguments with the bill.Everyone also enjoyed the relaxed atmosphare.
Great lunch,great time,we will be back!

“Loved, Loved, Loved the food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

Ate here with a big group of people for a lunch banquet. AMAZING food. The best Pork Belly I have ever tasted. Wine was good. Not sure what they do with the coke. Ordered two glasses and so flat both times, best to stick with the the fantastic food and good wine.

“Try the Pork Belly!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

I've dined here a couple of times - once with a work group and another w friends.

Private room dining with work and set menu was fantastic - great, fast service, try the pork belly

Always busy at lunch times so I recommend you book. Try the pork belly

I liked the pork belly do much I brought the recipe book purely for that one item, seriously it's so complex w so many flavours ... I now just leave it to the experts!

Try the pork belly (!)

“Banquet till you drop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

I went to a function in the private dining room of this establishment. The quality of the food was excellent, although there was a heavy bias towards meat. There was certainly plenty of it, and there needed to be at a price of $65 per head. Be warned that if some of your guests don't turn up you will be asked to pay $50 each for them regardless. So long as you are aware of the rules and don't over order this is a good option for a largish private function.
