“Wonderful food and ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

It has authentic south Indian food in a beautiful setting. The appam and stew are must haves. They also have interesting ice cream flavors like broken wheat with banana and black pepper.

“Great food and refreshingly pleasant service...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

I really enjoyed a recent dinner at Sothern Spice. We chose the set-menu and the food just kept coming! I just wish I had not had snacks just before getting to dinner as the food was delicious. I look forward to going again, this time with enough appetite to do complete justice to the feast.. :)

“Fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

I took my grandmother here for her 87 th birthday. We chose the Virundh (feast) and what a feast it was!! Very large multi course meal. Suggest you miss the previous meal to fully appreciate the food.

Service was great with staff helping us choose well.

The decor has been recently changed to an opulent Chola dynasty fantasy theme. unbelieveably opulent and needs to be seen to be appreciated.

Food from all four southern Indian states presented at their best

Although expensive by Indian standards about right for an upmarket Restraunt in the OECD. About $75/ head.

I will definitely visit again.
