Diner Reviews
  • "I arrived an hour prior to my reservation because we were hoping to get seated early. The hostess said we'd only get seated much closer to the time of reservation. Fair enough - I just requested that she give us a nice table for it's a special night for the 2 of us. We ended up getting seated at reservation time - but in my opinion - the worst area I'd want in the restaurant - loud, by the bar, by a bunch of crowd. They said they had no choice, unless we were willing to wait an extra 20mins. We sat. On my way to the washroom within 5mins - I asked for a manager and explained the situation - and he was super helpful, and got us a much better table immediately. The drinks, apps, dinner experience including ambiance was then perfect."

  • "Tasting menu was good. I wouldn't say my meal was a fantastic meal, because I'm Asian, I'm more critical to Asian food. i prefer Chinatown. But the ambiance was worth it.It was definitely a romantic ,fun, time. Great place to take a date or go in big group. I will go back in a big group because it was a good time."

  • "I usually do not review restaurants but had to make an exception for Spice Market. The decor is beautiful and service is good but the food is horrible. Maybe I am exaggerating on the food but I expected more. I just expected the food to tasted good. I some times visit a mom and pop Thai restaurant in Sunnyside that has way better food. The lobster summer rolls here cannot even compare to my Sunnyside gem. They had an overpowering lemony taste. I could not taste the lobster or anything else just lemon. I thought I was eating Lebonese food. I went on a Tuesday during restaurant week. We did not order from the restaurant week menu. If you are a foodie, this place is not for you. Just grab a drink at the bar. Do not waste your money."

  • "My friend recommended the Spice Market. I had never been, but always wanted to check it out since I work in the area. It was extremely delicious. She suggested sharing three small plates- spicy thai slaw, seasonal green curry vegetables and pearl noodles with tofu. It was the perfect amount! Our waitress recommended a cocktail which I choose to have- it was tasty and certainly gave me a "buzz." I would definitely go back on a date or with a group of girlfriends."

  • "Second time I've been to this restaurant and it was just as great as the first. It's very "New York," so if you're looking for that sexy, urban, cool vibe- this is the place. The food is outstanding- would definitely recommend the curried duck and the fried sushi."

  • "But chose to go back this week during Restaurant week. Very busy and energetic vibe. Food is delicious, but in hindsight, Restaurant week limits your choices and there is so much great food to chose from . . . not sure I'd do that again, BUT if you haven't been, Restaurant Week menu is a very good starting point. Despite the fact that the restaurant was busy, our waiter was incredibly attentive, as was his support staff. All the food is delicious, but they have a honey peanut ice cream that amazing!!! They have a great "custom cocktails" I had the Mt. Kai Tea to start and it was very good. Can't wait to go back."

  • "Restaurant itself was very beautiful, however, music was too loud that I could not hear what my partner was saying to me. They kept bring wrong foods, they even forgot to put some spice on our meals. It was the worst experience by far and will not go back to this place again."

  • "Wait Staff wasn't very experienced and was totally uninterested in insuring the food and dining experience at our table was satisfactory. Waiter had zero personality or was extremely shy - not a good trait to gaining tips to live on! A general lack by management to insure smooth flow of food and communication in our section and at our table. Food was just okay. Sommelier recommended a wine with dinner "that would go with everything" we ordered. It went well with nothing we ordered! Would probably not return to Spice Market again. Really was hoping it would be the experience equal to Jean-Georges Vongerichten's excellent reputation."

  • "i always want to visit spice market, which it looked interesting interrior design. it was very nice too but the food had lot of spice as it is spiace market. it was nice experience trying, for me it is something i cannot take often. rather my wife said she likes budakhan better cuz they have smoother taste. this place is as good as others, but just for us, it was too much spice to handle"

  • "The food was really good here. Small portion size , but filling. Everyone's food is not brought out at the same time, so we all ended up sharing food. This restaurant is good for groups or date night. The chicken Samosas was delicious, and the barbecue salmon was to die for. Will definitely go again."

  • "I took my friend for his birthday and he said it was the best birthday present he's ever gotten. The food was wonderful, the ambiance was outstanding, and the service was great. I would definitely dine at the Spice Market again and actually can't wait to go back."

  • "I was disappointed, frankly. First the good: Restaurant is beautifully decorated. Wood carving is spectacular. Ambience is energetic. Now the not so good: We had to wait 35 minutes for a table--that's not the end of the world if that were the only issue. Altough diners are advised that food "comes out when ready," some at our table waited for too long to get thier food while others were almost done with their course. Our main "server" rarerly stopped by. We were served by anyone who picked up our food at the open kitchen located 15 feet from us. Becuase the restaruant was packed on a Friday night, I felt like service was by assembly line by multiple strangers. Food was moderatly good but nothing special. I'd pass on going back."

  • "A friend and I visited during Resturant Week. We odered from the pre-fixed menu. The selection and food was average. I'll go again. I'm sure the taste will be more satisfying. They do make a decent Ginger margarita."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "I finally got to try Spice Market during restaurant week and it did not disappoint. I loved eating on the main floor with the summer breeze flowing through the gorgeous dining room which transported me to Asia. It was fancy Thai food served without attitude. I enjoyed my Ginger margarita and some of the food was in the form of chopped patties (chicken confit, the seafood in my laksa). The restaurant week menu was limited but it was a great way to try a new place."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "I tried Restaurant Week menu selections and only rated it fair. The appetizer soup apparently had more seafood than the seafood laksa noodle soup entrée which had a lot off egg. I guess all the price went into the flavorful broths. I can get a lot more bang for the buck for similar food at NYoNYa. The service was fine, but the servers weren't as hot as I was led to believe by past Zagat's "hottest servers" restaurant list or else I would of rated the ambience as outstanding. I would not recommend Spice Market as a Restaurant Week destination; you're better off ordering from the regular menu."

  • "I have been to spice market over a dozen times, and this was absolutely the worst service I have received in such a long time. Waiter was not attentive to the table whatsoever. Experience is not only food but the service. Waiter took our appetizer order, delay to get bottle of wine, another waiter took the main course order, which turned out to be all wrong and missing dishes. Sister came to the table 2-3 times the entire evening (to take app order, when I complained to manager, to give us the bill). We sat waiting to order a second bottle of wine for over 25 min when the 1st was finished. Bus boy brought the dessert menu and no one ever came back for another 20 min. Finally asked for check and that was wrong. I could have flown to miami"

  • "Happening spot! I have been wanting to try this place for some time. From the inviting ambiance to the unique attire of the waitstaff, upon walking in you feel like you're in Asia. Cocktails were well prepared and extremely refreshing! Great food! Of note we encountered around a 15 min delay in one of our entrees being delivered, otherwise great experience."

We chose the restaurant week menu - heavenly food. I can recommend this restaurant for their exceptional food and excellent service."

  • "We waited 45 minutes for the appetizers and when we questioned it, they served our entrees first because they were "ready". One person in our party was served all her courses before we got our meals so she essentially ate alone. We waited for the entrees over 30 minutes when we asked for them back. Everyone should be served the same courses at the same time. The restaurant was not that busy. Other tables had their entire meals and we were still waiting. The manager did compensate us for the delay with complimentary wine but if you want to take over 2 hours for lunch and have all the courses served in the wrong order, this is the place for you! By the way, the food was good!"

  • "Our server was slow to attend to our table and give us menus. I noticed all other tables were given hot towels and chips. My setting was missing a fork and no one bothered to give me one. My server never got my second drink order."

  • "Went for RW lunch..started with the spicy chicken balls...large portion and very tasty. Then had the pork belly buns...served open..like very soft tacos...delicious. Ended with poundcake with peaches. Added the wine pairing and got 3 very good , good pours. Was very impressed with service...esp their patience with next table. Dad with two young daughters, around 8 and 10?..tells server girls don't like anything spicy or raw...Hello an Asian place called Spice Market is perhaps not your best choice esp. since he said he'd been there before so knows the deal and there are Italian, Mexican, burger, pizza, French, etc. nearby. After first course ordered was "too spicy" , he was a bit testy, servers perfectly calm ,and ended well."

  • "Went here for a birthday gathering with 8 other people. 1st time I came here it was extrmely crowded and they had our table elbow to elbow. Not the case this time thankfully. Came here primarily for the duck and guess what? They ran out. Service was subpar and food was just ok. Come here for the ambience, not the food."

  • "We visit spice market London at least twice a year so we knew what to expect. The food is meant to be shared and it doesn't come all at once. The food in New York was up to its usual standard. It tasted fresh and was full of the right flavours. Service was a bit less. For the first time we didn't get a hot towel or their delicious spicy sauce with crisps... Maybe our waiter forgot, because we did see them at other tables. We didn't ask for them because it was very busy and by the time we realised we weren't getting them at all, our first starter had arrived. After this first hickup everything went pretty much as expected. We prefer to go to spice market for a lunch, since it's much calmer and quieter then."

  • "This was my 3rd time at Spice Market, I must say the food is good each time I have been here, however this time the service was slow. We could only get reservations for 8 people on Sunday at 5pm. The wait staff was not attentive at all, I advise my daughter had nut allergy ( she had been there 2 years ago with me and no isaccsue) we ordered meals without nuts. When one of us tasted a peanut in our food the explanation was it may have gone in by accident. This is NOT acceptable if you have a nut allergy in your party. Restaurants are usually honest if they can accommodate special request and they said they could. They simply said sorry and took it off the bill. Very disappointed...."

  • "With such a short stay in NYC we ended up going twice to the Spice Market. Amazing appetizers (especially the steamed dumplings in mushroom and lobster sauce) and delicious curry dishes. Our favorite by far was their special ginger margarita. When back in the NY area, we'll definitely be going here again."
