“Excellent food and attentive service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

As always the Spice Route provided us with an excellent family meal.The freshly cooked noodles and dosas were particularly good. Several new items of food were provided that had not been available when we last visited including a spicy kidney bean curry and cold hard boiled eggs. We spent a happy couple of hours eating and chatting, the food and service could not be faulted.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

Went to this restaurant last week after watching a movie, it wa ramadan and we were fasting, they gave us a complimentary mango lasse and dates which was a very nice touch... The lasse was delicious, they had a really nice selection of oriental food which was very tasty,
Prices were reasonable

“SO MUCH HAS CHANGED AND NOT FOR THE BETTER”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

What's happening to my normally wonderful SPICE ROUTE - the two boys (Malaysian I think) that used to do the stir fry noodles have gone and so has the wonderful banter after eating there for years. Staff have changed recently and not for the better - empty plates left on tables - this never happened before - why now? Service is slow - staff are like robots with no personalities - PLEASE get back to how you used to be - giving you a wide berth - if I knew where the old noodles boys were working now I'd be there at their new place in a shot - We've tried over and over since they've gone but it's never been the same....Food choices are limited now, Come back OLD SPICE ROUTE - and what a difference this review is compared to my review last September..........

“Changed hands?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013 via mobile

I love going to this restaurant. So much choice. Food amazing. Service fab. Always busy with lots of local people which speaks volumes. ...
Untill our last visit. Friday night and it was dead. Not a local in sight. The food was half empty. Hardly any choice. What we did have was just ok.out of all the restaurants in the red dragon centre this was by far the best. Please go back to how you used to be. Will give it another try....watch this space

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

I have always raved about spice route and how good the food was there,until i went back yesterday. The restaurant has gone down alot, we went in the evening they have cut back on there dishes.
