“Oh my the pork belly!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

I love love love this place! Went here for lunch and the food was to die for! I'd never had pork belly before. The thought irked me but when I didn't think about it, I was chowing it down like no tomorrow. Definitely going back when I head back to Oz!

Also cheaper at lunch time ;)

“Very nice....”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

A similar experience to Longrain Melbourne with really amazing fusion food, great ambiance, and great service. It's an expensive place, but the servings were generous. The signature pork belly dish was divine! Not a big fan of the communal seating... the concept is great but can get very noisy.

“Never lets you down!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Red Spice Road is one of those places that even while you are eating you are planning your next visit! Super cocktails! They even have their own Red Spice Road mojito! Worth the trip there for the cocktails alone.
I have visited this restaurant many times and food is always amazing.I spent mothers day last year in a private dinning room with a set menu and even that had us bursting at the seams . One of those restaurants that looks great has delicious fusions of taste and the drinks really are to die for !!

Absolutely agree with Emily 385. No cheap, but really worth it because you get so many courses.

And i was really impressed that aussie chef can make such good asian food.

“Expensive, but worth it!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

The communal seating was a bit awkward my first time, however on this occasion we managed to have the table end - great for the birthday girl!

The pork belly is UNBELIEVABLE words simply cannot describe the crispy, crackly, tender, juicy goodness that is this dish! Ramp it up with a caramelised apple-slaw and unique combo of Asian salad and herb greens and o-m-g... Their cocktail list is very impressive too

Staff are super attentive (big plus in my opinion)
