“Very bad food, tastes awefull”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I visited this place once and once we did a home delivery. The Food was ok when we ate there, but when we got the home delivery it was terrible.
The dishes tasted on Chinese salt and they were very cour because of that. We had to throw away all the food because we weren't even sure if the food was fresh or stale.

“Our favorite food in Journal Square”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Nice fusion food. Has a north Indian touch to it. We almost always order the same food because it's just so good. For three adults and a kid, we order individual Manchow soups (spicy and very good), Kai Chi (which is their name for drums of heaven), a Dry Cauliflower Manchurian and a Hakka Chilli Chicken gravy for the main course and an extra boiled rice. Their fried rice is good too and I've heard good reviews about their fish. We've tried a few other dishes from their menu over the past couple of years and don't recall a single dish that we didn't enjoy. Their service isn't what it used to be, we love the ambience, and watch your bill for added gratuity. I've seen them run promotions on GroupOn in case that's your thing. Must visit if you're in the area and if you enjoy Indo-Chinese cuisine.

“Excellent BYOB”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Do not be fooled,this area in Jersey City is mostly restaurants from India,but China Spice is a Chinese restaurant with India accents.The staff went overboard to make our dinner delightful.Very patient going over all the choices,and answering all our questions.One very important tip,we circled the block several times because of lack of parking,my friend finally went into the restaurant while I doubled park outside,we found out that there are two parking lots on the street and they only charge 2.00 to park.
