Stayed at the Hotel by the Red Canal for 3 nights and ate at the restaurant everyday. By far the best food we had in Myanamar and recommend the Biryani. Staff really attentive and every meal was delicious. However, they do charge a premium and felt it was a little too pricey but......the convenience and quality meant we were willing... More

We are a selection of starters which were all excellent. Both curry main courses were the best curry we have had in Myanmar, so well worth a visit. The setting although part of a small hotel is very nice if you can get a table outside. Highly recommend.

This restaurant (in a hotel) serves very good Indian food. Do select a few appetizers (to share) as they are very good. Also the Tandoori chicken and the curry's we had as main course were nice.

To start: This is NOT a dessert place, but it helps them to improve their TA listing, I suppose. Now: It's mainly an Indian restaurant, but they have other cuisines, including some western on the menu as well. The Spice Garden is part of the Red Canal hotel, nicely located in a separate building on the same premises. As we... More

This was our first time in Mandalay and we were looking for a nice romantic spot for dinner. Spice Garden seemed to fit the bill & not too far from our hotel (the Sedona) but too far to walk and it is down some rather dark side roads. Our taxi driver (booked through the hotel) bailed out on us after... More

This splendid small restaurant is part of the Hotel by the Red Canal in a quiet part of Mandalay. It has a special focus on Indiam style food but covers and melds foods of other regions too. The cooking is excellent and the staff are welcoming, friendly and quietly professional. A good place for a good meal at good value... More

This restaurant is at The Hotel by the Red Canal. We ate the set dinner menu for $16 north Indian option, but there were also Myanmar options too or a la carte. Food was hot, just the right amount including dessert and tea/coffee. Wide variety of drink options too and really good service if a little quick but that may... More

Authentic yummy Indian food in a charming setting in Mandalay. The restaurant is within the Red Canal Hotel and we would surely return again.

The restaurant in the Red Canal is small but excellent. We ordered Tandoori chicken, Pashwari Naan, Kashmiri Naan, Mateen Paneer and rice with a good hearty bottle of Myanmar Shiraz.

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.
