Well as I say it is completely different with what expectations you go in with. If you are going with the thought that it would be the traditional Indian / south indian food it would not be the case. Its a separate cuisine with Coast food as the primary serving. This restaurant is bound to have extreme reviews. Those who... More

Dear Guest, Greetings of the day! I have been disappointed to note that you did not relish your experience while dining with us. However, I would like to mention that the cuisine served at The Spice Route is not Indian but authentic South east asian cuisine that delights the patrons who are fond of it as well as those who...

This was my 5th visit to the Spice Route, the last one was a couple of years back. I was shocked to see how the standards have declined over the years. There are few restaurants in Delhi that are better at serving average food in a brilliant ambience. The restaurant was relatively busy with tourists, but that notwithstanding the service... More

Charming atmosphere, a touch of ancient Indian culture, excellent food and unique wine. Everything was perfect, the serving too. It's worth every rupee we spent. I would suggest to order the prawns in coconut cream.

The decor and foods of this restaurant take you back to another time of India. If you like spicy Asian vegetarian and non-veg, you won't be disappointed.

We were fortunate to have dined at Spice Route while in Delhi March 2014. A special thank you to Mr. Rohit Prasad, who kindly helped with reservations, and visited our table once we were seated. The food and service were both wonderful - all in all, a beautiful way to cap off our short visit to Delhi.

We visited during Feb, 2014. The restaurant was full and we did not have prior reservation so had to wait for 20 odd minutes. When we got the seat we were excited and very much looking forward to some authentic south and south-east Asian dishes. However, the chilli chicken was very much similar to any other Chinese restaurant around CP.... More
