Huge menu, beautiful setting

A bit of upmarket dining in Mandalay. The Indian menu is exhaustive and our selected dishes were all as expected - delicious! not the cheapest place to dine but will certainly impress.

When we arrived, a lady at the entrance told us that we could not enter as the restaurant was closed!! We said thats awkward as we called and reserved, she then panicked called... More

Had read some great reviews of this restaurant and the pictures I had seen on line made it look very impressive. The food was ok , we had the samosas which were very good , but the curry was a bit lame, and there wasn't much choice at all The pictures were technically correct, very well done. However in reality,... More

This is consistently good Indian food in a lovely setting at the Hotel by the Red Canal. It's not cheap by local standards, but definitely worth it as a splurge from time to time.

Everything is absolutely excellent. The service, the quality of the food, the drinks. Definitely a good choice for a special occasion in Mandalay. You can reserve a table with view on the pool and it's going to be the best atmosphere that you can possibly get in a restaurant in Mandalay. We always order samosa, fish pakora, Chana masala and...

Food and ambiance was good but prices were expensive even in USD. Butter chicken was good but pretty small and $10 USD. 1 naan was $4 USD!! If money isn't an object then go here but otherwise I'd recommend going somewhere else.

We had no reservation so we were placed upstairs at this lovely restaurant which is connected to the Hotel by the Red Canal-an exquisite and up market boutique hotel in an out-of- the -way area of Mandalay. The roads in this area were pretty bad. It was quite a distance from where we were staying but the trip was worth... More

We had a craving for Indian and saw Spice Garden had some good reviews so checked it out. They have a nice outdoor space, the service was slow and the food was expensive. It was on par with what we'd pay back in Canada. The butter chicken was tasty, the saag paneer was more sauteed spinach vs pureed/chopped up.

A attractive hotel and restaurant off the "canal", which is a bit of a stretch. The menu is somewhat extensive with some western and Burmese choices, but we stuck with the Indian. We had a veg set menu, and a chicken chettinandu, a prep I hadn't tried before. All food was tasty, although they did forget the soup, which was... More

Good food and service but best of all is ambience. Restaurant is set in beautiful garden in one of the best hotels in Mandalay. Staff is bit confused but friendly and kind.
