“Delicious food, wonderful ambience, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

We made a group booking a Spice for a birthday celebration, and it was a wise decision indeed to choose Spice for the birthday.

Much can be said about the wonderful ambience and service, however much more can be said about the food.

If you are tired of the mass produced food available out there, then do try this restaurant.

Linda, the chef continued to delight us during the evening with plate after plate of amazing food.
Each plate was a journey of discovery for everyone, with a myriad of new flavour combinations that simply amazed us all. We ordered everything from vegetarian, to duck, to prawns, to lamb. Special mention must be made to the fact that there is an entire separate vegetarian menu with so many options!

As I mentioned, many great things can be said about the food, but one thing is certain, food made with love will ALWAYS be the best food you can have.

Everyone in Durban and the surrounding areas should try this restaurant at least once! You will not be disappointed at all.

Complements to the chef!

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Spice is really one of thosee resturants that never lets you down. Upmarket, good ambience with a really super menu. The food is excellent and plated really well. The various dishes burst with different flavours and the wines on offer are good choices.
