The Spice Garden is a chic elegant restaurant serving Myanmar , Northern and Southern Indian cuisines with primary focus on poultry, seafood and vegetarian dishes. There is also a menu of continental favorites for the homesick tourists. Justifiably proud to be the only Indian-Myanmar fine dining restaurant in Mandalay , the General Manager subscribes to a policy of only preparing food for the same day itself to ensure guests are served the freshest quality food.

In the 2 meals we ate vegetable pakoras, cheese pakora, chicken tikka Marsala, a spiced chicken... read more

Authentic yummy Indian food in a charming setting in Mandalay. The restaurant is within the Red Canal Hotel and we would surely return again.

The restaurant in the Red Canal is small but excellent. We ordered Tandoori chicken, Pashwari Naan, Kashmiri Naan, Mateen Paneer and rice with a good hearty bottle of Myanmar Shiraz. The food was excellent the atmosphere nice the staff cheerful and as attentive as you could wish without being intrusive. They speak English too which is always useful. We had... More

Food was good but overpriced. The restaurant itself is nice - especially the tables outside and on the 1st floor Staff is really friendly.

Restaurant located in The Hotel By The Red Canal. Simply excellent Indian food cooked by I ndain chefs - if you get a table on the lower floor you can see the chef at work through a glass wall. Other options re available - Myanmar and western dishes. Very good value for money given the standard of the food and... More

Don't go here if your life depends on it! Seriously the most expensive microwave meal you will ever pay money for. Everything was luke warm and microwaved, apart from the naan. No authentic flavours at all (I am Indian). When I sent one of the naans back as it was cold, they put it in the microwave and gave it... More

We enjoyed very much the atmosphere, the very friendly and helpful staff, the terrific food and the fantastic mango smoothies. On our next trip to Myanmar we will be back to the Spice Garden.

We were there tonight. We had asked at our hotel for a recommendation for Indian food in Mandalay and the Spice Garden was recommended. We both thought it was terrible; so much so that neither of us finished our food. The chicken curry from Tamil Nadu was flavorful enough, but the chicken nuggets were so touch that it was difficult... More
