Always a winner!

I cannot praise Red Spice road highly enough. Having dined here again recently, it never fails to please. From the moment we were greeted till the time we left, it was perfect. Wonderful service, friendly and informative staff, and of course stunning food. Thank you for another perfect evening.

I had heard such great things about Red Spice Road so was excited to try it. We didn't book and on a Friday night of course there wasn't a table available. The staff were very helpful trying to find us a table, but it was going to be a 20 minute wait. We decided to sit at the bar and... More

We were visiting Melbourne for Easter long weekend and was looking where to go for dinner. Most of the restaurants we looked up we closed for the holidays, except this one. We were so lucky to find this restaurant! Ambience is really great and food very delicious with generous servings. We ordered crispy pork in plum sauce with apple salad... More

Maybe it was what we chose to eat here, but I was not impressed with the food. The drinks were delicious, but not worth the money. Lovely place and interesting menu but high prices. We would not go back.

This restaurant was suggested to us and I am so glad we went. A beautiful restaurant with a great concept of long tables were you are seated, instead of many individual tables. Somewhat eccentric decor works very good. The lunch menu allows you to choose from a express buffet list or a selection of a la carte. You need to... More

Visited 3 years ago and have yet to have as good Pork Belly as the Pork Belly with apple slaw and chilli caramel they do here! Worth the visit alone in my opinion let alone for all the other tasty dishes on the menu, loved it!

We went as a family and friends group. The waitress was excellent, the food was good and the restaurant was warm and toasty. I only give 4 stars as I am a selfish eater and don't like sharing!

As always - the food was great and service was also good. The pork belly is famous and worthy for all the positive comments.
