The chefs hat, the name behind it and the scene that’s been carefully created imply great things for The Spice Temple. Service is attentive and the menu - both food and drinks - enticing. Whilst everything was poised for a great evening of fabulous food,...More

We returned to Spice Temple after our last visit a few years ago and the food, service and ambience were all great. A little expensive (mains and wines), although the portions were generous and the entrees were great value. The deep fried egg plant and...More

Chose the vivid special @ $49pp. Best value with a good selection of dishes. Overall food was good without being great, and I don't think the menu price matched the quality.

The food was excellent and this rating should be a 5 however the service was average in terms of understanding the menu, providing guidance for beverages not available was not up to scratch for this level of dining. We also had issues redeeming a voucher...More

Table was not ready for quite a while so had to sit in the bar for a bit, which was not too bad. The service was slow throughout after this though. Food was good in general; they did not hold back on the spice which...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
