I would highly recommend the place as a Takeout, the food is tasty, authentic Indian taste. The actual restaurant had a strong smell of mixture of spices, so that may not work as a place to sit down and eat for everyone.

We ordered takeaway and upon pick up realised we had ordered from the Wanaka restaurant. So great that they were understanding and arranged a new order that was ready in 15 minutes. Great food and Customer service. Thank you...

We had a curry for dinner and we're very impressed. We got in between 5-7pm which meant we each got a curry, a naan, poppadom, and chutney for $20.90. Great curry for the price. Highly recommend!!

We just arrived in Queenstown and went to Spice Room expecting a decent meal, but we were floored by the hospitality and the authentic taste. Must try: Malai tikka, Dhal makhani, Saagwala lamb. Managers along with all the staffs are very cheerful and friendly.

This is my first review on Trip Advisor. After dining at The Spice Room (after finding them on Trip Advisor) I felt compelled to sign up so I could write a review! The service was excellent and the food was even better. The portions were adequate and the flavours were just delicious!! A must try if you are in Queenstown... More

The place is centrally located and easy to find. We ordered paneer and dal. The food was average. We have asked them to make our food hot but they ended up adding more garam masala to the curries which was not that great. The ambience is nice and the service is outstanding. An average place at the best. Comparatively expensive... More

Had a great meal here tonight. Had jalfrezi, a lamb curry, onion naan and the crispy cracker appetizer with chutneys. Everything was stellar! My wife particularly loved the jalfrezi. The onion kulcha was the best I've had! Our Nepalese waiter was very nice and service was good. Great food, great service and fair prices is 5 stars in my books.... More

We ate at this restaurant a few years ago and on the strength of that, decided to again. We found the food - across all the dishes we ordered - delicious. We were a large party and the food was served promptly and the helpings were generous. The service was courteous and helpful. Would highly recommend for a night out.... More
