We ate at this restaurant, as a treat to ourselves, during our stay in Delhi. The decor is sumptuous, as indeed is that of the hotel. (It is the only hotel I have ever visited which as on its walls mirrors presented to the hotel by a King-Emperor, George V, at the time of his Coronation in Delhi in 1911.)... More

After living in New Delhi for 3 mths. The spice route was a most magical evening. The food was outstanding, service was exceptional, friendly and entertaining. Rohit the manager is a delight. The hand painted murals on all surfaces, seductive. A intimate atmosphere for a couple, single or large group even at the same time! Highly recommended.

We went twice for lunch to The Imperial during our short trip to Delhi and the first time we discovered The Spice Route restaurant. The hotel is a great oasis within busy New Delhi and the Thai restaurant is a very special experience. We decided to sit in the patio but for dinner the indoor part is just amazing. Themed... More

In the beautifully renovated Imperial Hotel near CP. The Spice Route has great food and even greater decor. I've been there several times with family & friends, usually on special occasions as it's a bit pricey but worth every rupee.

Our group hurried to order before the kitchen closed in the afternoon, giving us little time to explore this piece of history, with its many restaurants. The Spice Route is like sitting IN a work of sculpted and mural art. Calm, serene, well attended by waiters. Everyone's dish was perfect. Well worth the expense. Afterward we headed to La Baguette...

Undoubtely one of the best restaurants in the luxury category in Delhi. Their tasting menu is superb and literally a spice route accross Asia. The set up is also wonderful and helps to evade from the day to day fight of Delhi. Simply delightful.
