Unforgettable

From the moment we walked in the door, the atmosphere was beautiful. We could see the chefs at work, the staff were so helpful and friendly. Our wine glasses were never empty. We had the 7 course degustation and my allergies were taken great care of so I felt safe to try everything. The food was... read more

Went here after reading the reviews. Called up to book and they only had seats left up at the bar but was very nice to sit up there. Had the 5 plate degustation menu and we also had some cocktails and sake tasting. Everything was great! Drinks, food, staff and ambience 5 star! Can't wait to come back!

Visiting from Tas a friend suggested I try Spice Bar, I was lucky to get a seat last minute by the look of and it. I'm glad I did though, the food and atmosphere is pretty top notch. Prices were reasonable as well. I over ordered as I wanted to try as many things as possible but my bill wasn't... More

Food at Spice bar is the best, staff very friendly and good at their job. The scallops are to die for. Some of the other portions of food are a bit on the small size for the price.

We'd read good reviews. We'd driven past. But we hadn't eat there. We recently remedied that. We had no reservation for lunch, but were directed to an inside table where we immediately felt at ease. The decor is effective and attractive modern Asian and the seating comfortable. At the waiter's suggestion we ordered the 5 course degustation, and we were... More

Spice Bar ranges in a gorgeous selection of cocktails, beverages but above all the best Asian Cuisine I have tasted! It is well worth the price as the quality and produce used is amazing. The chefs design a seasonal menu to die for, and each mouthful makes you wanting more and more. The service is impeccable and they are more... More

Had the privilege to be wined and dined here. We sat up at the bar and had a birds eye view of all the action. It was a great idea to be seated up there. Host and staff very welcoming, very friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. The best of the best. Atmosphere, decor and setting very lovely as well. We... More

4 of us went for a special occasion. We had the 7 course set menu which was very good. It was $75 each which is quite a bit so although food and service excellent not somewhere I would go often. However if you are looking for some great food that is a bit different and have something to celebrate then... More

Have to say the service and atmosphere was great. Seated outside on the verandah with a beautiful breeze, however the dishes mostly lacked flavour and spice with the exception of 3 dishes. We had the banquet for around $75 a head and the share plate sizes were small and we barely left full.
