Came here after positive words of mouth. N now the only indian restaurant i go to. Great place to dine in, friendly service and excellent food. All under one roof. Fish head curry never tasted this good. The aroma and the freshness is amazing. Their garlic cheese prawn is top. Im a lover of both north and south indian food and here i can get the best of both. Satisfaction guaranteed.

I had recently an opportunity to take some friends out for lunch to the 7 Spice restaurant. This was my first visit to the restaurant as I was visting Johor Bahru on some business. The place is situated in the Danga Bay area with lots of shop lots around. There is no exclusive or separate parking space for those visiting the restaurant; we however did not find any difficulty in finding a place to park in the common parking lots a short distance away from the restaurant.
The space inside the restaurant is large - having no particular or distinctive ambiance inside. Interestingly, the menu does not serve Naan or any Indian bread during lunch times. These are only available during the evenings. However, one could order the tandoori/ meat/ vegetable dishes. My friends ordered Chicken Biriyani, the portions of which were adequate. Biriyani was served with Raita (small sized onion slices soaked in curd). The dishes were served almost immediately, without any waiting. A rectangular banana leaf is placed in front of you to place your food items on to it instead of ceramic plates.The quality of the Basmati rice used and the taste of the biriyani could have been little better - my friends however liked it.

Few aspects about the Biriyani. In the Indian traditional cooking, chicken or vegetable biriyani is prepared by cooking the rice and meat pieces together with the aromatic Indian spices. That way the flavor is blended into both the rice and the meat pieces. I suspect that here it is done otherwise. I saw the waiter taking chicken pieces separately and then add the cooked biriyani rice on top of the pieces. Also the biriyani is served here in open containers. Traditionally, it is supposed to be served in small containers which are sealed/ covered at the top. One has to just remove the cover before having the biriyani. That way the flavor is retained in a fresh state until the food is consumed. Also, another important ingredient is the selection of the right type of Basmati rice. Usually, one selects the long grained Basmati rice. This basmati rice is so aromatic that the aroma would fill the whole house even when it is being cooked. This feeling or flavor was absent here.

Our bill was also not too large an amount as the rates too are pretty reasonable here. Interestingly, no service charge or taxes are levied on the food items. They are all nett priced. Finally, the restaurant is ok, if one is in a bit of hurry and is hard pressed for time specially during the afternoons.

I am not too fond of spicy or curried stuffs to go with my rice..really, but 7 Spice Indian Cuisine really had me hooked with their kind of Indian Food (cooking)..!
I may not have been to too many Restaurants serving Indian cuisines, so my review may not be
spot-on..., but 7 Spice really hooked me to their kind of food..!!
My only complain...? the food served are too much to finish. For family eating, would be great..!
The Chef/Cooks must be real excellent...! Taste-wise...no complain..!!!

We tried the tri-coloured fish, buttered chicken and one other chicken dish. Food quality is quite good and standard pricing. Waiting time was a tad too long, we waited half hour for the food when we were there on a Sunday at 2pm.
