Unbelievably huge place. Packed with people in the meatpacking district. Unique ambiance and tastes. Loved the lobster main dish. Try it.

“Great ambiance”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Only negative is that we had a reservation for 9pm and did not get to our table until about 9:30pm and the way the bar is set up, a lot of people dont fit.
The food was amazing!. I did the tasting menu and it was great!
decor is also very nice and the staff was very pleasant. Favorite drink: House mojito!

“The rustic feeling of a Southeast-Asian capital in New York City”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

I have not yet been to Bangkok or Hong Kong, but Spice Market gives me the feeling of what those places might be like: dilapidated splendor, with food whose complexity and depth sneaks up on you, its spices almost like drugs in their ability to intoxicate and transport.

The last time we were there, we had a tasting menu, with wine to go with each course. Suffice it to say we were delighted, if a little bit in over our heads after 6 glasses of wine.

Highly recommended. Make sure to go downstairs to use the restroom, just so you can take in all the decor of the place.

“Absolutely fabulous restaurant”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

We went to this restaurant because it was recommended to us. I was not sure what to expect. We did not expect to be blown away. The decor is amazing and I can't say enough about the food and service. We had the pork dumpling as appetizers to share, then we both ordered a fish dish. It was just delicious.
Can't wait to go back to New York to relive this experience.
