Loved the communal tables

The food are flavorsome and inventive, with an impressive wine list to boot. Staff were attentive and friendly. I really enjoyed the communal table concept - was a bit confronting at first, but it was still easy to have private conversations without feeling that the people next to you were... read more

Firstly we had a great Asian fusion lunch the previous day at chin chin that was fantastic. We are well dined and extensively travelled. None of us liked the food. It was too bold and trying too hard to be different with flavours that just did not match. Nor did the combination of dishes on the premiere tasting menu. Service... More

I'll definitely go back.

Been here quite a few times now. Make it easy on yourself and just choose the chef's menu. Food is always outstanding and service is very good too. Love the flavour! Has a great buzz as well

I have visited here a couple of times and each time I have left very impressed the food here is delicious and the service is some of the best I have experienced in Melbourne. This is not the restaurant for the traveller on a budget and the cost does reflect the service. It is also not the restaurant for an... More

Had a banquet shared with 4 others. Every course was very tasty with just enough spice. The standout being the lamb shank. Service was good with friendly wait staff. Highly recommended

This was such a great venue. We had the private dining room which was enormous. The banquet was great for a large group. Food was exceptional, very tasty and generous. Great for modern Asian with authentic flavors. Will go back for sure!

My husband and I had discussed coming here for along time. Every time I checked the menu I wasn't 100% the food was something we would like. For my husbands birthday this year I decided we would give it a go. At first I was a little put off by the communal seating but funnily enough once we were seated... More

The atmosphere was excellent for a mid week venue. The food was full of flavour. I found it annoying sitting side by side and distracted by the couple's conversation opposite. The service was ok. Our drinks didn't come until after our starters were finished. There wasn't anyone around to order more food /drink so we decided not to stay for... More

Red Spice Road never disappoints, the food is always amazing along with the service and price. Weather it be for lunch or dinner this restaurant at either McKillop St or QV will leave you with the feeling like you can't wait to go back again. Make sure you try the pork belly and goat curry!
