I love Indian food, and am in love with The Spice Room here in Queenstown. Always top notch food, friendly staff, warm setting and very central. Must do while in Queenstown.

“Worthy of #1 Curry/Indian restaurant in Queenstown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

Friendly attentive staff and an excellent curry full of fresh flavour at the right spice level for us. We chose the Venison on special and it proved to be a good selection. Would recommend this restaurant to others, Queenstown has many restaurants and this proved to be one of the better choices in our short stay.

“Awesome Indian Restaurant - Don't miss it!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

We enjoyed a few days in Queenstown last year and decided to spend a week this time. Having eaten in a few of the so called 'fine dining' establishments, we decided to try The Spice Room. We've just come back to the hotel from dinner and it was truly nothing short of superb! SO fresh and tasty... we highly recommend their special dish of boned chicken with garlic served on a sizzling plate! Beautiful fresh ingredients, expertly prepared. Service was very good without being obtrusive and price was awesome. This is not fine dining but I was SO impressed I'll be heading back for another culinary delight before we leave on Saturday! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

“Excellent Fresh and Tasty Indian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

Delicious! I love it when Indian is fresh and tasty without being stodgy. The menu has all the usual dishes and everything we tried was one of the best versions we'd ever had. The lamb cutlets are so yummy, tender and full of flavour, the butter chicken and garlic chicken (a special) were both excellent too. Plenty of butter sauce to dip awesome naan into! The service was excellent from the moment we walked in, friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Queenstown, we will be back!
