It was my birthday. We arrived at 5pm and were given the lunch menu. 5pm is not lunch time. Not even offered a drink while discussing the menu and trying to decide what we could have. Had to bother chefs for dishes off dinner menu. Still not even shown dinner menu. We were the only ones in the restaurant cant be that hard to get service. Wont be going back there.

Group of 8 not wanting a set menu but we received so much more. The quality of food was outstanding and we will be back again and again. All very reasonably priced. Something for everyone.

Had the Feed Me menu ($69 option) - and couldn't fault it! The first dish came out super fast, which was unexpected. But after that, the food came at a really good pace. Great venue for groups of 8-10, or for a special occassion.

Have been Red Spice Road several occasions with friends and it has never let me down. Great Asian inspired foods and services. Ambience is stylish and offering great experience. Can't recommend further, must go to those haven't been there.

We had a $79 banquet which was ok.
The food felt like it had been prepared hours before - not particularly fresh.
The overall experience was ok.
The service was good and there was a lively atmosphere but if you're a foodie, I wouldn't bother.

Been there before & it was great, this time it was terrible. Too noisy (last time we went when it was quieter), very expensive & staff were quite rude at times.
We had a banquet & because I was gluten free, they gave me the same fish for two dishes, and it was very dry. I was disappointed. I had recommended red spice road for this group meeting but I quite was embarrassed about how expensive & poor value for money that it was.
The staff member bought out a carafe of wine, which we didn't order & she got grumpy when I explained, so we ended up keeping it to avoid an argument. Probably won't return for sometime.

Always enjoy the food there. Pork belly, lamb ribs, just can not get enough of them.
Love their cocktail as well. Very delicate and lots of varieties.
My husband and I always go there for a casual date or bring a group of friends there.
Nice atomesphere!

The food was exceptional, have never eaten this version of south east Asian cuisine. Being a vegetarian I was always limited by options, but the food I ate at red spice was AMAZING!
