The Spice route is the original South-East Asian restaurant that started serving the cuisines of South-East Asia well before anybody else thought of it. Theirs was the concept of serving the food of all the regions in Asia where spices were traded, from India's Malabar coast to China. Thus, there are Kerala's Stir-Fried Prawns, Thailand curries, Vietnamese rolls, Sri Lankan Squid Rings and Indonesian Satay Ayam. The decor is as good as it was when Spice Route was new. Thai is the strongest section here. Khao Tang Naa Tang is an unusual starter with sago crackers that have to be dipped into a special sauce. Don't even think of missing the flavourful Massaman Curry made the authentic way with chunks of potatoes and meat. A magical place to bring special guests for a memorable dinner.

I visited this place for the first time when a friend of mine suggested it. On entering the place, I found the ambience to be a quiet, nice and pleasing one. The food was fine. I felt that according to the prices the quality could have been better. Over all it was a fine experience.

The Spice Route provided me with the most disappointing dining experience in Delhi. What was advertised and promoted as a "tasting menu" turned out to be no better than average buffet food I can get in most Asian restaurants in the US for less than US$10.
A tasting menu at any other high end restaurant is all about experiencing a multitude of different flavors - ONE AT A TIME !!! But at the Spice Route all the apperetizers are slapped on one plate and the falvors start to mix. Same happened with the main courses - five different things all slapped on one plate again, with the waitstaff not properly planning on where to put it on the plate and when the run out of space, pilling different foods on top of each other.........
Most courses brought to our table were only served partially and I have no idea where the semi-full food bowls went to afterwards - not to us.
The only food highlights were the Tom Kha soup, the chicken and the sticky rice dessert.
The ambience/decoration is wonderful, the waitstaff friendly, but inexperienced in serving properly and for Rp 3000 the food was a great disappointment.
I would not recommend this place at all.
