Rather souless venue, but the food was excellent.However, a friend had ordered the menu, which I suspect is not the standard fare. We had a private room, which made up for the rather dreary atmosphere in the main restaurant

Had a wonderful meal at Spiceburg on Friday night 16th March, 2012. As mentioned in another post, the owner is passionate about his food. He asked what our palate was ie how spicey and what area of the menu we were looking and then recommended what we should have. He wasn't wrong - everything they brought to the table was superb. I have decided that next time, I will again trust his judgement and enjoy something new.

Spice burg is different from any other Indian restaurant in Jhb....Why? Well....to put it simply it has a non-monolithic cuisine. One gets tired off north Indian cuisine and this is a place that displays the art of South Indian cuisine at it's best! Where else in Joburg can I get a Dorsa?Where? Where else can I get my Rasam? Where I ask you? This is a gem. Other reasons: hospitable owner,nice new ambiance at it's new venue,clean,value ( in comparison to some of these other over rated pricey restaurants) and menu so diverse to keep one going back! Enjoy Jhb!

The food at SpiceBurg is decent (not great) but the atmosphere is lacking. They should lose the TV and work on the decor and ambience.

The owner is passionate about what he serves - some excellent south Indian dishes (especially the dosas) that you do not find in the many Indo - Pakistani restaurants in Johannesburg.
