Quality of food is oké, but the already high end prices become excessive when the check is presented with unexpected taxes. Menu pricing should clearly include and show these taxes on the moment of ordering.

The restaurant is named as as one of the top 10 in the world for Asian food. So as one would expect we were looking forward to eating... More

What an evening, what a discovery! The Spire Route is definitively one of the best Asian "Thai" meal I've ever had. The restaurant is just beautiful. The old decor built with antiques is breathtaking. Service perfect in this jewel in the heard of Delhi. For starters, we had a green mango salad and spicy chicken. Main courses followed with a...

Went for a team lunch which was a farewell to one of our team members. Loved the ambience, the soothing music, and the food. Service was seamless, and we were served from a fixed menu, which was convenient. Don't remember the names of most dishes, but the vegetable clear soup had a lovely flavour, the yellow curry with rice was... More

Three of us went to Spice Route this week after reading about the Restauarnt online. Venue was fantastic, service excellent, atmosphere great, we enjoyed it except for the food which was a real disappointment. Our expectations were certainly high given all we had read and whilst it was all "ok", at $140 (Australian per head for the tasting menu) it... More
