Good food

its a big venue, very loud at times and difficult to hear your dinner companions. The food - we selected a $99 per head banquet was great with dishes ranging from oh yum to hmmm that was nice. Service was good, staff were very pleasant and attentive

we were invited to this restaurant by a client who recommended it very highly, so we took along some UK guests. the layout is interesting in that you are seated opposite each other on long winding tables. the food was delicious with some very unique dishes

Ate lunch and sat inside--the outdoor area was packed and that would have been our first choice. Loved the option of having our group of four pick three entrees an an app to share, a great way to try new things. The pork belly was great as was the lamb. Highly recommend

Looking for a good Asian meal, I came across Red Spice Road, where I found an employee, post-lunch rush enjoying a quiet coffee outdoors. She was so helpful with regard to my dietary preferences, my decision was made to eat here this evening. We were certainly not disappointed. The ambience of the restaurant, with the curved long wooden benches was... More
