“Enjoyed the Ginger Margaritas”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Like the atmosphere and overall concept. We brought my daughter which was in my opinion a mistake. Not a huge family restaurant but the waiter was very accomodating and brought here a cheese tracy (upon her request :)) from the neighboring restaurant.

“Surprise and delight”
Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

I have dined at both spice market and market and can quite confidentley say each visit out does the last. The staff went out of their way to ensure we had a great dining experience. I have celebrated 2 birthdays there and on both occasions the manger has arranged a cake to arrive at the table. The staff are genuine and treat you with warmth and respect without being too over the top. The food is well priced and the portions are just right. The business lunch is well worth the 89R. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anybody, especially if you are dining with a larger group.

“Beautiful space, good happy hour, mediocre food”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

The space is a very attractive Asian-themed restaurant and bar. They have a "happy hour," which, as far as I can tell, gives a free drink plus free appetizer when one buys one drink -- though the wait staff has difficulty enforcing this and I usually have to call the manager.

There are a few innovative cocktails, and the appetizers are solid. The mains are decent -- I think that it's trying to be too ambitious and fails to execute. I usually go for the sushi (also decent though not pristine) and appetizers. They have a Friday brunch that is fun, with various cooking stations, but also not amazing.

“Nice”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Nice food, felt overly attended by the staff, take a sip of wine they come over soon after to top you up. I enjoyed the food and all the different tastes. Not overly hot with chilly as I asked. Good for business or pleasure. Free WiFi. Nice bathrooms.
