Always boring, a dinner with clients, colleagues, boss, f*k everyone f*k afraid to f*k say something f*k wrong. In that context, Southern Spice was a relief, not only for the astonishing food -so exquisite, so delicate behing the wall of fire, so southern-, but alos for the decor, that fantastic fantasy of southern multiculutural, architecture, and for the service.

How amazing is that? The food tasted incredible and every staff member that attended to us was lovely, accommodating and very insightful. They made suggestion as to... More

If you are looking for authentic south Indian food from across the southern states, this is the place to go. A lot of options and very good service as well. My non-Indian colleagues also had a wonderful time and the experience.

I am a self proclaimed foodie and on my most recent visit to India, had the pleasure of dining at Southern Spice. Without a doubt, it is on my list of top meals in India. The food was Indian cuisine as I’d never encountered before – delectable little morsels, expertly cooked, prettily presented and packing so much flavour. Our 3... More

This was The Best meal I ever had! I tried it twice on my Chennai visits and both times I was mesmerized by not only food but the superb service! Last year I had visited at April and since it was really hot, chose to dine in here as I was staying in their hotel. This time we went back... More

The variety of menu is amazing. The native taste is excellent. The platters are too good. If you are going with family or friends it is highly recommended.

I was not quite convinced when a friend of mine suggested this place for an 'Authentic' south indian meal. But I am glad I visited this place. This place serves some great food. I loved everything i had - briyani, parota, mutton chukka, paniyaram, idiyappam, appam, papads... And on top of my list is ' the ginger margarita '. It... More

Order the non vegetarian thali (seafood) and it is very likely that you'll be happy at the end of your meal. There is an assortment of fried stuff on your table, which is meant to be a pre-meal bite. Do not waste your appetite on this ! The food is far too good to miss out on ! The seafood,... More
