Eceryone I know loves the Spice Room. The food is amazing eat in or takeaway. The people are friendly and considerate. I go there even though I cant have spice, because I don't want to miss out on being with my fellows. The staff cooked me food I could eat. The atmosphere is warm and cozy.

“A Good India Experience”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Very friendly and helpful service. The venison dish was a winner as was the sizzling chicken - and we were able to take the remains home to enjoy.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

We were in Wanaka for a night and along with the cold weather came a craving for Indian food. We were expecting average dishes, considering it was off season in what seemed to be a tourist town.
Boy were we wrong. Each dish was tasty, perfectly seasoned and spiced. You won't find the bland cream-filled meat dishes masquerading as curries here.
Nice, clean restaurant with a bar and little fireplace. Wonderful find in a beautiful town. A little bit expensive but worth it considering the location. Highly recommended!

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

The Spice Room is one of the best restaurants we've ever visited. Our meal was flawless, the service was friendly and timely, and the ambiance was very modern and cozy. I had a chicken dish with crushed mint, and my wife had lamb curry. Both dishes were superb.

Had we spent another night in Wanaka, we would have returned!

“Nice place and yummy food!”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We had heard of the restaurant, so we had high expectations. And delivered it!
Very nice place, beautiful decoration. Friendly service. And delicious food. We weren't too sure of what to order and the waiter was very helpful. Everything was fantastic!
