What a terrific restaurant, absolute style and terrific atmosphere, communal style tables. Food is sensational and you have to try the twice cooked ribs - slides right off the bone. Great service. Try it!

This is an amazing restaurant. Great Great Food and right in the city - although hidden like most of Melbourne's Gems!!!!! It was a particularly busy night and the staff were light on but the service was always with a smile. Food is delicious and the place was packed. The pre rush banquet early bird meal is such a good... More

I was looking for dinner and stumbled across Red Spice Road, a Thai restaurant. Being by myself, the staff were very accomodating and happy for me to sit at, and be served at, the bar. Staff were very attentive, food was excellent and the portion sizes were good.

Already fans of Veitnamese food, we couldn't help but finish everything we ordered, it was so tasty we couldn't bear to waste any of it. We had the banquet set menu #2, a deeply satisfying set of dishes that was accompanied by rice on the side. You really didn't need the rice because the portions were large enough to feed... More

We were walking back to the Alto, feet aching from a day shopping in the lanes and disappointed with last nights restuarant. Passed this nice looking place and looked in to find a lively, warm and inviting restuarant with a fabulous menu. Spoiled for choice we chose a couple of starters from the extensive menu and some wine then went... More

Red Spice Road is pleasantly unusual. Its a very big space thats part cocktail bar and most part restaurant. Ther are long tables where you sit, usually seperated from the other patrons,and the decor is..well red spice road with dominant art by Australia's David Bromley......no Asian wait people..which is a pity because the service if efficient but soulless...wine is reasonably...

Shared early dinner with friends before a sporting match. The set banquet menu was delicious and reasonably good value for money. What added a sour taste was the price and quality of the cocktails. When the beverage bill for 4 drinks (70% ice) and 3 small bottles of sparkling water was almost the same cost of the food it doesn't... More

Where do I begin. My birthday dinner with a bunch of amazing people ruined by the rudder booking hostess I've encountered anywhere in the world. Apparently miscounting your guests by one is major inconvenience - in fact I was scolded by this 'waitress' and told that as they were fully booked, one guest would need to leave or stand!!! Bottle... More

Red Spice Road is now a regular favorite for my frequent business trips to Melbourne. I have taken groups of 4-10 here and all have provided rave feedback food quality and atmosphere. Favorites are the standout pork belly, the twice cooked lamb ribs, kingfish salad and crab betel leaves. Wine list is limited but good choices for glass, carafe or... More
