Booked this restaurant after reading great reviews. This restaurant is worth a visit. We booked on line back in January for the 1st setting timeslot (6.30pm) as we were staying at the adjoining Santai Retreat. When we arrived to be seated, a little strange as we were not asked for our name and the waiter kinda indicated that no bookings... More

Unfortunately the food was very average. We had salted squid which was chewier than it should be and plum pork that was over cooked and dry. We didn't bother ordering any other dishes after that. Service was really good and the setting really nice as well. Shame about the food as this could have been a great night.

Booked well in advance for the Sunday nights Chefs dinner at around $35 a head. The chef chooses the what you are served and from what we could see, about half the restaurant got one menu and the other half a different menu. We did request no fish. The food was really tasty, two entrees and two mains to share.... More

We stayed at the Santai resort for 5 nights and ate at the Spice Den on 2 of those nights. Their menu is impressive and on first inspection there were a lot of things we wanted to try - hence the 2 visits. The food was good, tasty reasonably priced and well presented. The service was attentive but I don't... More

Some of the best Asian food we have had, now we know why friends have raved about it. Dumplings were tasty, duck pancakes were delicious, wagyu beef pat prik king was beautiful. My wife even rated the duck fried rice the best she had ever had. Note that it is quite pricey and they don't answer the phone (in my... More

Trish and I attended this restaurant with 2 friends and had the $40 pet person deal with as absolutely awesome, the wait staff brought the courses out at we finished each one. Plenty of food and was with Thai flavour. The massamam chicken curry was to die for.

We weren't able to dine at the restaurant when we stayed there but return with our long lost friend for Friday lunch. We were the first to be seated but filled up fast. All meals were flavoursome but my only problem getting steam rice last and no hot towels.

We visited the Spice Den 2 nights in a row. We were staying at the Santai Spa and didn't want to cook! The first night we just went for cocktails and snacks. We sat at the bar in front of the mixologists and had a lovely evening. We were well looked after by the waitress and the cocktails were fabulous!... More
