Went here last Christmas with a big group and was blown away by the quality of the banquet. So the food is what a friend and I went back for this weekend (as opposed to the bar,!atmosphere or reputation) and it didn't disappoint. Two starters and two mains were perfectly cooked and generous serves. The grilled lamb ribs were heavenly,... More

We chose the banquet menu. We started with three small tasting items. The smashed prawns on a beetle leaf was amazing as was the duck relies with watermelon. We then had local squid with sambal and pickled ginger, pickled tea leaf salad. This was followed by Braised lamb shoulder with okra, green beans in a Burmese curry and sea bream... More

This restaurant is one of the most underrated gem's in Melbourne, both QV and McKillop street smash out gourmet delicious asian fusion, on par if not better than ChinChin!! Best to go with a group of 4 or more to try all of the dishes, share style eating at its finest!

After a shocking experience in booking Red Spice Road for an evening with our clients (They attempted to charge us $1,000 to change the date!) We eventually made it in for dinner. There were 15 of us in total and we were encouraged to have a private room. Firstly - no one took our coats they were piled up in... More

I loved the kale salad, an great blend of flavours and textures. The beef was outstanding, just the right amount of heat! Service was excellent.

Visited this restaurant with a large group of interstate work colleagues. The food was excellent and good value for money. Great pork belly, lamb ribs, ox cheek, a gorgeous green curry and a delicious, fresh corn salad was enjoyed by all. Desserts were modern and spectacular Asian fusion. Unfortunately the night would have been perfect if it were not for... More
