We were pleasantly surprised to have some of the best Indian food we've ever had at The Spice Room. The flavours were so authentic and bursting with flavour. We had the set menu, so it was amazing value. You get to choose 3 curries; would totally recommend the Goan Prawn curry. Somewhere we would definitely go back to, and happily pay full price.

The best thing about booking a first table is the service. When there are only a few other occupied tables you are (almost) always well looked after. And the Spice Room was exemplary. Polite waiting staff, very attentive, and outstanding food. We'll definitely be back.

Delicious food and great service. Kids really enjoyed trying a variety of curries...including squid salad and prawn Goan curry - spicy, but yum! We will be back.

third time coming here, but this time on First Table! Honestly, can't rave about it enough. It get's better each time we return.

Go for the Banquet - I was eating curry for a few days after! The Garlic naans are amazing, the Tikki Paneer is absolutely incredible and the Palak is pretty good too.

GREAT dessert as well - the Hot Chocolate Naan!

The service is great as well. Would highly recommend.

We had a great dining experience at The Spice Room. The food was amazing and so was the service! Hands down the best naan and korma I've ever had. And i should know, since Indian is my favorite food.We will 100% be back when we are in town again.

The Spice Room has got to be one of the best Indian restaurant in Queenstown. It's nice that it wasn't as busy and the food was priced as valued. We had the Banquet and definitely no regrets with it! Multiple variety of food and curries, we just had to take it home. The service was great! Nice and attentive and understanding! Definitely would come again! Thank you :))

Lovely meal and friendly wait staff. The restaurant decor is reasonably basic if not a little tired but the food and service awesome. They allow you to have the banquet at 50% which is huge!! Great value for money

We were dinning at the spice room for the first time and had a really good time. We had a table for two right at the window with a nice view into busy Queenstown.
The waiters were nice and attentive. The food was amazing and well done. We had samosas as starters and I can highly recommend these. The portions were massive and neither me or my partner could finish our meals. It was no problem to take the leftovers as take away, which I always appreciate.
Overall I would recommend the spice room for anyone who likes a good Indian meal! Thanks for a great night out!

We had a lovely meal in The Spice Room but we can tell it's named that for a reason! Our meals were all pretty spice-y and I can usually handle my spice well, so I'd just recommend for others to undershoot your spice tolerance haha!

The staff couldn't be more friendly, professional and accommodating though. They were very attentive and offered us various things to help with the spice.

The only downside is the decor is pretty dated but it wouldn't put me off going there again for a tasty meal.

Great food, had a discussion with manager about an advertised price shown on Internet (said it was only a ‘takeaway’ price), but manager was very accomodating in accepting the advertised price and most apologetic to us...
A good dining experience and curries were very generous and flavoursome!!

Enjoyed the meal - asked for "Hot" and got it :-)

Curry was very tasty and authentic but he service was lacking. We wanted dessert but after they cleared our plates from dinner, they never came back to our table again. Waited for over twenty minutes before giving up and walking out. Had dessert elsewhere. Felt as though as we were firstvtabel customers, maybe they did not want to offer more food?

Food was good.
Samosa chat was delicious.

The most delicious Indian food ever!!! Very big entree dishes. Loved this restaurant.

- dined at The Spice Room on

Excellent food & service. We have eaten at The Spice Room on at least 4 occasions over 2 separate visits to Queenstown in the last 7 months.

This was the first time of using First Table & at this restaurant. Well worth it to save 50% off the food we have known we enjoy from this restaurant.

Wonderful service and the food was delicious, as always!
