We have been to this restaurant once before and it was an easy choice to return. The food was excellent, I'd say one of the best curries in New Zealand that I've had. The service is great, really friendly and attentive. Lovely wine too!

This is the best Indian food I've ever had and also one of the very best restaurant meals I've had. Super atmosphere. Super service. Awesome vegetarian food. Wish I could go back to NZ to have a meal here again!

Just returned from our annual ski trip to NZ where we once again dined at the Spice Room and once again we were not disappointed with the quality of the food and service. After a hard days skiing it was great to tuck into some tasty curries, sit back and enjoy a cold beverage or two and soak in the great atmosphere by the fire. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We had the samosa and it was the best we have ever had. The venison curry was incredible. Great atmosphere, and the owners are so very gracious. Great wines by the glass, too. Don't miss having a meal here- you must give this a try!
