Further Information

Situated in The Quay Building at Circular Quay, The Spice Room delights diners with an array of dishes fit for a king, served up fresh and hot in an opulent dining area. Set up like an Indian mansion, this restaurant in Sydney’s central business district is truly stunning, with exotic furnishings and stunning decorations throughout. Open seven days a week for lunch from 12pm to 3pm, and for dinner from 5pm onwards, this is one upscale Indian restaurant that’s an absolute must-visit.

Lunch at the Spice Room in Sydney’s central business district is a grand experience, and surprisingly affordable, too. Try the tiffin lunches, available in two- or three- tier sizes, and enjoy a satisfying and authentic meal. During the evening, diners are spoilt for choice with a menu that includes a huge range of a la carte dishes, vegetarian delights and incredible banquets. When dining with a large group, we recommend taking one of the sharing platters – choose between pakoras, seafood, tandoori grills and vegetarian appetisers to mix and match – before choosing one of The Spice Room’s specialties such as the chicken khurchan or the railway canteen goat curry. Don’t miss out – reserve well in advance for a meal at this Circular Quay favourite.

Wonderful place, great service & the food was even better. Must haves are a Vindaloo (Prawns were great) and Palak Paneer along Beetroot fritters are wonderful.

This was my second visit to The Spice Room and it was once again a wonderful experience. The first time we went we got the $55 banquet which was delicious but just a little bit too much food! So this time we got the $44 banquet and it was perfect. Yummy! The Spice Room is also in a great location and has a wonderful atmosphere. A great experience all round!

The food came out quick and the customer service was great. We ordered the tandoori mixed grill, butter chicken, railway canteen goat curry, pumpkin jeera aloo, garlic naan, saffron rice pulao and mango lassi. Everything was good and the garlic naan was fresh from the tandoori which made the experience even better. The goat curry was our favorite with the goat falling off the bone. The sauce was amazing where we had to scrap up all the sauce with naan because it was that good. I'm salvating thinking about it. We would like to go n and try the banquet to try out other dishes.

The food and service was outstanding. Only downfall was that they didn't have our booking on record even though we booked online via quandoo. The staff apologised for the mistake profusely and re-checked and said that they had missed it. We were seated a minute or two later and enjoyed the rest of our experience. Will definitely be back!

We had our dinner there before a concert at the Opera House. It was our second time to the Spice Room. The food was excellent again. Service was also very good: quick and attentive. We will go there again.

Great food, great service. Unique decor and location. Value for money. Early evening meal, noisy and cheery, tables very close. Not for intimate dining. Enjoyable for groups who don't mind the bustle

Delicious food and first class service - polite and prompt (Azhar). The atmosphere is vibrant but cozy. The barman meticulously polished the glasses and helped clean tables in quieter moments.

Delicious and daring food, wonderful atmosphere and decor, just a little noisy. This little gem is well hidden in a drab building. But as soon as you step inside you are transported to another place.

Upon booking i was informed i can only have the table to myself until 8. I explained it should most probebly not be a problem unless we are in between meals at 8. We were late by around 45 minutes and before reaching i called to inform we are running late. I was again told i'l have to vacate the tabel at 8 even if we havent finished our food. I have never experienced such arrogance towards a customer ever in my life. We ended up eating elsewhere and thankfully we did not have to eat at this non-customer friendly place because the service, food and overall dining experience at the other restaurant was out of the world. But i wont recommend The spice room to anyone nor would like to ever visit that again.

The entres and mains were great. The desert was underwhelming. The cocktails seemed weak and took too long to turn up - stick with beer only. The post meal palete cleanser was fun and interesting.
