“Amongst the best In Delhi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

What stands out in The Spice Route is the magnificent interior. Painstakingly done, beautifully executed, uniquely mesmerising, the interiors catch your attention immediately. Service is impeccable as well, with a smiling and efficient staff. I had a soup and chicken which were both well-made. We had grilled chicken with ice cream in dessert, which was also very good. I especially liked the Vanilla ice cream, which was the best Ive ever had.

Strongly recommended!

“beautiful ambiance, high quality food and excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Beautifully built and decorated restaurant meant to resemble a Thai Temple. Excellent service--- fast, friendly, helpful and unpretentious. Rohit, who coordinates service, was especially helpful. Quality food-- many Thai favorites with nice presentation and care on level of spice-- adapted to one's prefereces. Prices are high (2,600 INR for two with simple meals and soft drinks) but worth it for the quality and service. Highly recommended for Thai food in Delhi!

“Birthday Treat = Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

A wonderful fusion of Asian food. We enjoyed every dish from the tangy Thai raw papaya and peanut salad (Som Tum Chae) and Kerala style prawns, the excellent Tom Yum soup with prawns, the stir fried lobster with ginger and Thai black mushrooms (Kung Nang Phad Khing), silky bean curd and Phad Thai Kung noodles with prawns and shrimps.

The restaurants knew it was my wife's birthday and we were treated to a personally printed menu listing what we had to eat (which is why I can remember the names and details) and we were given a private seating area in the terrace to share a wonderful complimentary chocolate cake at the end of the meal.

Rohit, the manager, and his team were excellent and I could not speak more highly of the quality of food here. It is exceptional, as of course are the prices, but you will never forget eating there.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

Can`t praise this place enough! One of the best restaurants Iv`e ever been, and as a
food nerd, i`ve been in many. The service was really outstanding! Super polite, attentive without pretentiousness. Really from a another planet compared European style, where it`s possible to go to a hyped up Michelin star restaurant, with ridiculously high prices, and get ridiculously bad service. The interior was fabulous, like a part of antropologigal museum, without feeling of being in museum. Food was absolutely delicious, traditional, no gimmicks, which fitted in with the overall atmosphere. it was really a Feast for all the Senses. Gesamtkunstwerk!
