“Amazing meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Took a client here for a meal last Friday night.

Decor is amazing, and the food was to die for. The fish in particular was delicious.

Having not been to the Imperial for a few years, I had forgotten how amazing it was. Definitely need to find a way to stay there gain soon.

Still doesn't replace Bukhara as my personal No.1 but very good.

“Disappointing experience at The Spice Route”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

It was my husband's birthday and I was all set to give him a beautiful dinner surprise. I had heard a lot about the spice route and it's ambience. I knew beforehand that the food would be average but the paintings on the walls..the decor compensates for it.
This restaurant is highly priced but it doen't pinch your pocket if it is worthwhile. Not only the food is overrated but the quality and taste of the food is highly disappointing and sad. We couldn't even finish one dish completely because of it's bad taste. We had experimented with it's starters, soups...main course and beverages but couldn't even find anything worth appreciating.
We wouldn't go back to this place ever again...and unfortunately I would recommend the same to everyone. This is my first negative review for anybody on Tripadvisor.

“Great Indian food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

This restaurant has a kitchen with a glass window so you can actually see the chefs working on the dishes. It has a good ambiance and great food. The buffet is totally worth the price! Great service and authentic taste of Indian food...
