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!

I was surprised about the quality of food. Maybe not as spicey as I'm used to, but the taste was excellent. Table next to the window overlooking the very clean kitchen. Very friendly staff. Price reasonable but not cheap for Mandalay standards.. But okay, I don't mind to pay a bit extra when the food is good

The Spice Garden is a small restaurant in the grounds of the Hotel by the Red Canal. It is served by excellent staff who are attentive but reserved in that Mayanmar way. The breakfasts are very good with a wide selection. Evening meals are good and include vegetarian options, being a very small restaurant the staff will prepare food to... More
