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.

A small but charming restaurant attached to the hotel. Rum by an Indian chef, this place offers a surprisingly authentic experience in what is, after all, a still developing nation. Spicing is rather mild and not as much heat as I would like, but this accords with local tastes. The naan was not quite right, undercooked and too flat, but... More

Huge selection of Indian and Burmese food. The food was very tasty and well prepared. The staff were attentive and offered great service. We were staying in the hotel and also had a breakfast that was very good too.

The restaurant is on the Hotel by the Red Canal property and is made of the same wood and design as the hotel. Staff are friendly and attentive. Menu choices are great if you love indian (but slightly overpriced for some options) i.e. 1 piece of Naan bread is $4 usd. But the local beer was cheap!

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.
