“The Best Restaurant in Delhi”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

This is hands-down the best restaurant experience I've had in not just Delhi, but all of Asia. Phenomenal service... Simply phenomenal. They made excellent suggestions, were there when we needed them and gone when we didn't, were friendly but not imposing... Totally excellent staff. They even provided us with a tour of the BEAUTIFUL design of the place (trust us, its worth it) - which also functioned as an intro to Buddhist/asian-folk religion philosophy. Every bite of the food was delicious.

There was an outdoor seating that we didn't experience, but looked great if you visit in the winter months.

Can't wait for a special occasion to warrant a return journey to this Spice Route!!

“Great ambience, brilliant food”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

Brilliant ambience, excellent food with a great variety. Service was impeccable with the staff always attentive. The taste of different countries on the spice route is an excellent idea. There was a set menu, I would have liked this to bring in the different cuisines of the spice route in different courses....A bit pricey and therefore doesn't make it possible to afford every time.

“The Pinnacle of Delhi Dining”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

The food here is outstanding, as are the surroundings, the cutlery, crockery and staff. If you're looking for a special meal in Delhi, Spice Route is definitely worth it in it's own right, and additionally wonderful due to the chance to glimpse the Raj splendour that is The Imperial Hotel. It maybe pricey by Indian standards, but compared to prices in most Western countries, it's a snip!

“Delicious, but expensive”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

The food was great and service was superb. The restaurant itself is remarkable and make sure to ask your server to give you a tour of the restaurant and explain the history of the architecture to you. It's on the pricier side, but good for a high-end meal.
