Description: From the moment guests enter Spice Mela, they are presented with delicate Indian colors and flavors that intrigue the senses. Here, the team of dynamic chefs select the best recipes from India and combine them with modern food trends and ingredients to create a classical Pan-Indian menu. To complement the meal, beverages of all varieties to suit every taste are offered. Parties, or occasions calling for a more intimate environment, can take place in the bijou private dining area where guests can relax and enjoy their meal while taking in the unspoiled views of the Abu Dhabi waterfront and the skyscrapers in the distance. Discreet lounge-inspired music is the perfect backdrop to the restaurant that pays homage to the varied tastes and history of traditional India, while saluting the country's inspirational and exciting future.

Truly amazing service and food. The staff were very knowledgeable about the menu and the food served, also the waiter's recommendation on what to eat was spot on! What I also enjoyed is the view - you can see the arabian gulf with skyscrapers and their twinkling lights reflection in the water which makes it even more mesmerising. It gives a feeling as if the restaurant is just built on water. Simply a wonderful experience overall and would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to enjoy delicious Indian cuisine.
