This Malaysian restaurant is very nice. The food is good, all home made and fresh and delicious. The price is also good, not expensive. Atmosphere: relaxed, informal, friendly.
The people working there are very kind.

This place is in a busy cafe/ restaurant strip.

They offer outdoor seating on the sidewalk- this offers you an opportunity to sit and watch the world go by.

It's opposite the Adelaide Central Market.

There are many better options than Taste of Spice- go to one of those instead. For Asian food at a reasonable price- try the Thai at Star of Siam- which offers better atmosphere as well.

There's several places in Chinatown on the opposite side of Gouger Street which offer betterfood and better value.

I can't think of any reason you would eat here instead of other options in walking distance! They offer cheapish lunch specials... but don't be tempted!

When we were there it was very busy with locals. It was reccommended by our hotel staff as his favorite local Asian place and we were not disappointed. Gormet it is not, but a good meal at a reasonable price

A Taste of Spice is an Asian restaurant speciailising in Malay and Indonesian food after a persisting weeklong craving for Laksa got the better of me. The warmly, spiced, coconut broth filled with the goodness of aromatic tumeric spices, fresh pieces of prawn, squid, silken tofu, chicken and noodles was exactly as I envisoned it. The only thing it lacked was the quail eggs I was dreaming about. Although it was a hot day, one of the last bursts of the heatwave, I gave into my desire for the Indonesian dish and devoured it thoroughly satisfied. Our side order of ikan billis (crisp, deep fried anchovies) and chicken satay sticks made for delightful accompaniments.
