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.

So loud-just wish they could do something about the surfaces, because the food is good and have large tables for groups

This was the 2nd time we went to Red Spice Road and it was just as good. The pork belly was excellent and I would have it every night if I could. The rabbit stir fry, goat curry and shredded chicken salad were also hits. The beef cheeks were good but not as much as a hit. They have changed... More

The wait staff were rude, no explanation of dishes, ribs were cold and overall the experience was a disappointment. Don't go out of your way for this over-rated restaurant. There are plenty of other great places.

Went out after work with colleagues/friends with no expectations. Wow. The food was amazing! Chose not to do the banquette, instead we each ordered and shared a dish. In hindsight, as each dish was so well constructed, would like to taste every dish on the menu. (Hope you know what I mean..) Now feel like I've probably missed eating a... More

I visited Red Spice Road with a group of people for a business dinner. The dining room is on 2 levels with the upper level set out with very long rows of tables. We had a selection of starters and all were very good but on the small side. We were told the mains were very big and made for... More

Really enjoyable asian fusion food. The reviews that talk up the pork belly weren't lying, this is definitely worth getting. Prices were totally reasonable with mains $35-$40 and a main each totally satisfying the two of us. Wine list was a bit thin and other drinks seemed pretty pricey though. Overall the service was good and food out very quickly,... More
