We absolutely loved our meal here. My hubby got the Special Butter Chicken as he is a big butter chicken fan. He said without a doubt this is the best one he has ever eaten. I got the Garlic Chicken Tikka. It was tender, moist and full of flavour. The service was very good, the staff friendly, and it was a cosy atmosphere. Definitely would recommend this place. The price was good...about $75 including 2 beers, naan, rice and the meals

Despite good reviews I am afraid I found the Spice Room to be average. We were seated but waited quite a while before we were asked if we wanted any drinks. Waiter visited infrequently and at one point I had to go up to the bar to ask for someone to come over and take drinks orders. Venison main was tasteless and disappointing. My husband liked his biriyani though so that was something...disappointing

The Spice Room became our go to restaurant during our recent extended stay in Wanaka. We usually went there at the last minute when the cook (moi) couldn't face another night over the stove - which was quite often actually! We loved it because we knew we would never have to wait (sometimes we wanted a longer wait actually - there is good reading material and a cozy fire in the waiting area) and the welcome was always so warm. The restaurant had nice decor and was usually quite busy with a nice buzz. The food was delicious with all the favourites and some interesting specials (scallops, goat and venison...). The service was efficient and friendly with the charming owners themselves serving at front of house, smiling all the time and taking genuine pride in their business. For a lovely relaxing meal this lazy cook can't recommend The Spice Room highly enough.
