We ate at this restaurant 3 times while we were in Mandalay. The menu is extensive (mainly Indian but did have a few European options). The dishes we ordered were all tasty - chicken tikka masala, vegetable curry, saag paneer. The outdoor seating had a great atmosphere. Service was good. This was a bit more expensive than most of the... More

New to Mandalay we've been relaying on travel guides to find reliable/safe places to eat (after our adventurous pallets got us into food poisoning trouble during our journey) and this is an example of one of those such places. Probably safe but that comes at a cost. Lovely staff but unmemorable food experience. This is unfortunately what eating in Myanmar... More

Jan 21 Dinner at the hotel is always a welcome expectation. Who wants to go off-property after a thorough bath and change of clothes? Spice Garden is mainly an Indian-themed resto. The hotel's owner and GM happens to be a very generous and detail-oriented man, Ashwin Kumar. The professionalism of, not only the front and housekeeping staff, but also the... More

We had the whole upstairs to ourselves as all the good tables where taken so besides the quiet atmosphere the food more than made up for it. I have eaten indian food all over the world and this was some of the best I have eaten.

Ate here as it's in our hotel and was convenient after returning from a days sightseeing. Menu is mainly Indian although there are a few alternatives (e.g. Fired rice, fried noodles or pasta dishes and a few pizzas). It's situated alongside the hotel in the gardens in a nicely designed and airy building. There is indoor and outdoor seating. Food... More

A bit off the beaten path (unless you're staying at the Hotel on the Red Canal) but it's worth the trip. With a master Indian chef in the kitchen, Spice Garden blew us away. It was one of the best meals we had in town (with the exception of the mohinga at the Shwe Pyi Moe Cafe on our last... More

The restaurant at the Hotel by the Red Canal is undoubtedly the best place we found to dine in Mandalay. It's a bit out of the way (requires a taxi) and pricey for Myanmar but you get what you pay for here. Well-prepared Indian dishes, spicy to your taste, were a welcome change from the otherwise unrelenting Myanmar, Chinese or... More

Unexpected at a side street of the main roads... Nice place with delicious food, friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Would definitely come back again. A bit pricy though but with the money. Paid in $

The spice garden restaurant is attached to the Hotel by the Red Canal. It provides breakfast buffet for hotel guests plus a superb a la carte menu for lunch and dinner which is open to all. It has a separate well sign posted side entrance from the street. The menu focuses on Indian food (although there are also international cuisine... More

While staying at the Hotel by the Red Canal, we made use of the Spice Garden; it was outstanding. Staff are attentive and helpful while remaining discreet.

The Spice Garden is a chic elegant restaurant serving Myanmar , Northern and Southern Indian cuisines with primary focus on poultry, seafood and vegetarian dishes. There is also a menu of continental favorites for the homesick tourists. Justifiably proud to be the only Indian-Myanmar fine dining restaurant in Mandalay , the General Manager subscribes to a policy of only preparing food for the same day itself to ensure guests are served the freshest quality food.
