“Interesting Fusion Food”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Was there enjoying another QR89 express lunch. The menu have reasonable choices without being too vast that you would have the feeling of not sure what to choose.
When I just got there just slightly past 12o'clock, there was not a lot of eaters so the waiters probably a little too attentive, however as more people seated down, the service was swift without being too intrusive.
Situated on the first floor, if sitting by the window seat, have a slightly better view than the Market restaurant downstairs.
The food, was hearty, well cooked without being too fancy. The restaurant manager also came around to have a casual conversation which makes you feeling welcoming. I'm not sure if it is usual practice but I was given a free bag a cookie to be taken again which was delicious. Would definitely visit again.

“Awesome spot for happy hour”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

2 for 1 drinks and your choice of a free appetizer. No veggie options for the appy, but there is an a la carte menu that has a great mango salad and lentil soup. The atmosphere inside is very nice, but can get smokey.

“Good food”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Good food but a bit on the pricey side..but thats what you get charged for eating in a good hotel. Spice Market is within the W Hotel.

“Spice Market Friday Brunch”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Great atmosphere, funky decor, live music and tasty food. Having Asian-inspired cocktails made a nice change from the usual bubbly at brunch. The quality of the food was good and the waiting staff attentive.
The only negative point was that as a vegetarian there were not many vegetarian options and most of the chefs at the stations weren't willing to rustle anything up. This was disappointing as I love veggie sushi, noodles and tofu dishes. However, the chef on the soup station kindly asked the Head Chef if he could prepare some kind of veggie soup which he did and was much appreciated.
I plan to return to the Spice Market Brunch with friends soon but hope that there will be more vegetarian options to choose from next time...

“Great Atmosphere! Amazing Food! and top notch staff”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

We have been going to Spice for the happy hour since it first started and still after a year plus we are still not sick of it :) thanks to the great cocktails, food and amazing staff... previously stavros fassaris and few others made us feel so welcome and the rapport he has with the guests are amazing. That's what makes a place wonderful - the service. There is a new person in charge Josef and he is taking on the challenge very well too. I have to add that yesterday for a farewell we had to find stavros who is now at Market to say goodbye and he made us feel so welcome at the market and insist on a goodbye cocktails (amazing concoctions made by Levan!)....even to some discomfort of one F&B director who was passing by, she seems displeased of some sort to our existence... Bottom line is staffs who goes all to way to make a guests happy is an asset which every organization should be proud of!
