“Nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

A mate of mine claimed to have eaten some good food at a place called Red rice, after a few laps of the city it was called Red Spice Road and it was worth the effort. Ice cold beer is a good sign and after a very short wait with no booking we had a good table. 5 blokes agreed to pile heaps of food into the middle and "see how we go" . The entree's were spot on and each one was full of flavour. I liked the scallops best but they were all good. Highlights of dinner were the Pork Belly, the mud crab, the curry and these super little chop things that looked like small crumbed bones but were extraordinary. Biggest tip is hang for the dessert - We had Ice cream atop a coconut and pistachio "custard" (no idea if that's right but it's my word) with glace fruity things - stunning. best dessert i've had for ages and i get stuck into them often! worth a look!

“Quick banquet before a show. Lovely food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Went to RedSpice before going to the theatre. Had the express banquet which was faultless. The quality of the food was very fresh and most importantly tasted good. I had doubts if the express meal would be inferior quality but it most certainly was not - they are just prepared with the dishes on offer and the food comes out quick. Certainly will be visiting again!

“Oh my the pork belly!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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....”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 !!
