A dear friend and I dined at Spice Creek last night to celebrate our belated Birthdays. It was our first time and we loved it. Everything was perfect. From the welcoming greeting, servers knowledge of menu and service, art filled intimate space, and the creative food preparation make me eager to return. Lastly though, and so kind, was the owner...

Everytime my boyfriend and I visit Chico we make a point to have dinner at Spice Creek Cafe. Spice Creek is by far the best restaurant in Chico for many reasons. Number one, the food is absolutely incredible. The last time we dined there we ordered the Salmon Potstickers for an appetizer, the new Japanese Fried Chicken, and the Halibut... More

I was traveling to Chico and was told I had to go to Spice Creek for dinner. Little did I know it would be on my list of TOP restaurants in California, if not the country. From the moment I walked in, the smell from the kitchen was intoxicating. I was seated in the window of this little gem and... More

Spice Creek is our number 1 go-to restaurant whenever we're in Chico. Chef Rebecca continues to dazzle us with her amazing talent and creativity. The appetizers are to die for. The chili relleno is hands down the best I've ever had anywhere. The quality of her ingredients is always stellar. You can feel her passion with every delicious bite. This... More

One of our (very few) favorite places to eat out in Chico. The food and service are excellent. I give the chef 5 stars. It can get a little loud, but that's because everyone is enjoying themselves so much.

This delightful place continues to impress, after multiple visits. Talented chef, nice ambience, a local favorite. I have brought "big city" visitors who were clearly impressed with this Chico gem. FOODIES will not be disappointed.

We were invited here for dinner after having enjoyed the ambiance and shopping at the Thursday street market. The service was very good indeed as was the table that our large party of 10 were on. The chef is celebrated for her experience with blending spices. The starters were excellent. Especially the calamari and the steamers. Perhaps we ate too... More

My husband and I go here for every date night. We love it! We rarely ever order the same thing and almost always choose a special offered for the day. We've never been disappointed. The combinations are so unique but always turn out AMAZING!!

Everything was excellent. The service was spot on. Management, wait staff and the chef were very warm and welcoming. The food was divine. From the salmon potstickers for openers to chocolate torte for dessert we were not disappointed in one thing. I highly recommend this great restaurant.
