We came here on a sat night- a booking is a must! And we weren't disappointed after reading lots of great reviews. It was our first communal dining experience and it wasn't as I expected- my partner and I were next to each other on a long table (10ppl each side) - it was on the noisy side however was... More

Not my choice of restaurant s I do not like coriander and Thai tend to use it a lot but I did find the beef curry very nice and the corn fritter entrée was Devine.

I was here for drinks after teaching, and I was impressed by the surroundings here. Everyone loved it but I was slightly shocked by the cost of the wine, but still, this is Melbourne. There was space to move around - we booked it - and we all had a great time.

Visited with friends on a Saturday night. The place was absolutely packed, which is a good sign. Booking is a must. The service was very nice and friendly, just quite slow probably due to the number people dining that night. The food was good, interesting modern Asian with a twist. Certainly a pleasant experience.

A friend & I met at Red Spice Road last night for their early sitting. Initially we thought it might be a bit tricky having to be out by 7.00, but we weren't actually hurried out & left about 7.15pm. As a meal consumed as you leave work & before you go home and settle onto the couch, it works... More

I guess I had high expectations from all these reviews. The place was gorgeous and the service was good. The food was presented well but when I came to eat it, it was pretty average.

First: A word to the wise, don't eat here at peak times (Friday lunch for instance) as the crush and noise will inevitably make for a less leisurely meal. Of course, some of us like that sort of thing. If you can find a less busy time, and I recently went on a Friday for late lunch, you will get... More

I recently book a dinner at Red Spice Road to trial for an up coming work event designed for several international guests. Knowing the reputation for great food I did not expect the horrendous discrasceful service experience offered here. Wanting to try several items from the menu inquires were made as to if some could experiance the banquets on offer... More

Atmosphere, food, service all fabulous. Great for a family dinner with many gluten free options. The pork belly was particularly sensational. Definitely going again next time in Melbourne.
