"Red Spice Road has moved to a new location, not far from where it used to be. Still a large, attractively decorated space with plenty of room between tables. We had a party of nine with a couple of overseas visitors and we were looked after really well by Isabella, who helped with food and wine suggestions and pacing the dishes. We had one gluten free person and one vegetarian who were accommodated with no fuss."
"This was not my first visit to Red Spice Road, but, it was my first time at the new location. I have to say that the look and feel of the place impressed and once again the food excelled. Going with a large party, where tastes, wants and needs are all different, the staff excelled at accommodating all of us. Whether it be an allergy or dietary need, the staff confirmed and the kitchen absolutely delivered. My needs were vegetarian and I loved everything that the kitchen selected for me as part of the "set" lunch. Others with special needs, also had their meals customised accordingly."
"Amazing food, definitely one of the top places to dine in Melbourne! We had the main attractions: spicy Korean beef ribs, Crying tiger beef, Singapore Barramundi fish curry, Crispy Pork Belly with hot mint slaw, black vinegar and chilli caramel, Moo Ping Pork satay with coconut sugar and white pepper soy, crispy fried chicken and fried rice for the kids. The flavours all melded together perfectly. Fabulous fusion feast at its finest! I wish I had taken photos but it was all so delicious it was gone in no time!"

"If you can only order one dish at Red Spice Road, make sure it’s the sticky pork belly with apple slaw and chilli caramel."
"Red Spice Road is without doubt one of the best restaurants in Melbourne. The staff are always friendly and attentive, food and drink menus are promptly provided and the atmosphere is vibrant..."
"Fine Dining and Good Value are as far from each other on the ‘occurrings of the universe’ spectrum as you can get, really. At least it was until Red Spice Road came along."

"This place is the reason you eat out! To experience next level food quality that you can’t cook at home. The vibe in this place and friendly wait staff make this place extra special. Our waiter Edy was amazing! So attentive and efficient given how busy it was. And his meal recommendations of pork belly and lamb ribs were to die for.
It will be hard to eat out at other places and not be disappointed now!"
