Alas, gone!

Spice Creek, has been in Chico for a number of years. It is (was) one of the best in the area. Apparently, the owners decided to do something else. A tragedy. Now we only have Leon's Bistro for eclectic food.

So fantastic to be able to get delicious, organic food from a 5 star chef right here in Chico. It's our go to place whenever we have friends visiting and for a great night out.

This was my favorite restaurant with flavorful, unique combinations of fresh ingredients and a nice wine selection to go along with them. Unfortunately, they closed this past Saturday, June 27, 2015. We can only hope and wish that Spice Creek opens again in Chico, or elsewhere, definitely worth a road trip if they do.

Fresh, authentic flavors in the heart of downtown Chico! Spices are the key to rich flavors in this foodie experience at Spice Creek. Along with some of the most sophisticated dishes in town, we always appreciate the warmth and friendliness of the service-especially from the owner. One of our favorites in Chico!

This was a first time visit to Spice Creek for us. The atmosphere and seating was perfect, the waitress was friendly and knew the menu well with every detail of spices for each entre' it was a little overwhelming but she had no problem going back over any detail we inquired about! We haven't been able to get back there... More

My husband and I made a reservation for a Saturday night for 2. We arrived a little early and were sat immediately at a window seat. Great for us, because we like to people watch. The ambiance is perfect for a table of two or even six. We ordered the Korean duck meatballs served over vegetable kimchee. To die for!!... More

Spice Creek is absolutely the finest restaurant in Chico. My wife and I have visited the best eateries in Europe and San Francisco and we consider Spice Creek the best ever. Wonderful staff.

My wife and I found called Spice Creek Cafe at prime time on a Friday evening and were lucky to get an immediate table. Fortunately, we resisted temptation and omitted any appetizers. I ordered the chili relleno and my wife the winter lasagna. The portions were generous, and we could't have finished them if we had ordered appetizers. You can... More

There is nothing close to the dishes they serve in Chico... You might say that there dishes consists of a world fusion and the portions are large.
