Reviews

The ambience, the seating, the service and the food, everything was wonderful. We ordered Palak paneer, mixed vegetables and chicken rogan josh. The chicken dish was just okay (just a lot of cream) but the other two were delicious. We requested for the food to be mild and it was mild. The dessert (forgot the name), was naan stuffed with chocolate sauce and topped with icecream and berries sauce, was just delicious and very creative. No upset tummies later on, as usually happens when you eat out. First table booking helped budget the bill, so was an icing on the cake.

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.

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 :))
