Went there just before the Grand Final and would have to say it was the second best asian inspired meal I have eve had, only Cookie up the road beats it. Unfortunately I live in Brisbane otherwise I would be at one of these two restaurants every time I got the chance. The ribs and pork belly were awesome.

Based on reviews here and elsewhere, I wanted to try this even though my only chance was a Saturday night without a reservation. Despite being alone, there was no option to sit me at a solo table so I was offered to sit at the edge of a bigger group, or eat at the bar; both seemed awkward but I... More

The pork belly is the best in Melbourne, but there is plenty of other dishes on the menu to make you want to come back to this place. Decor is fantatstic and atmosphere is excellent.

This kind of food service was new to us. We were seated at long tables and the menus encouraged selecting several dishes to be shared. The atmosphere and service were very good. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. But best of all was the food itself. We shared several starters and mains. The dishes were absolutely delicious. Some were things... More

I can't remember having enjoyed a meal as much as the incredible food served at Red Spice Rd. Certainly the most fragrant and delicately flavoured mix of Thai and Vietnamese cuisine I've ever experienced. The service was also of extremely high quality with our waiter being both very friendly and attentive as well as knowledgeable about the menu options. I... More

This restaurant was chosen for us by our friend's son so we had no idea what to expect. It had a pleasant welcoming buzz with plenty of atmosphere - long tables, high tables and a gigantic red lantern in the middle. We had a high table and decided on the small banquet. Our waitress was friendly, helpful and attentive without... More

The Pork Belly was ridiculously good, service and ambiance was great. Loved the seating, being seated on a big long table, with random strangers next to you can be a great experience when you are travelling!

Loved the food at this place. Lamb Ribs were amazing, just salivating writing about them. Other dishes were great too, Pork Belly, Goat Rendang and Salads were standouts. Lovely cocktails and ambiance too. Highly recommended.
