Staying in the hotel so went first time for convenience, second time for the same reason. A few choices as a vegetarian but that's only to be expected in an Indian restaurant. Think it was only a matter of choice but enjoyed the first meal...More

The beautifully decorated Spices' pan-Asian cuisine is a bit imbalanced: A lot of Thai (understandable, as the chef is Thai) and a lot of Indian, while others, including Philippine, play only minor parts. That being said, we really enjoyed our dinner nonetheless. My wife had...More
