San Mateo’s most exciting restaurant is All Spice, an eclectic, contemporary eatery from Chef/Owner Sachin Chopra. Chef Chopra artfully blends the freshness of Californian ingredients with global techniques to create inventive, layered and flavorful dishes. Whether you choose to order from our constantly evolving a la carte selection or to experience our nightly Chef's Tasting Menu, you will be presented with something delicious, beautiful with just a hint of the exotic.

The restaurant is housed in a converted Victorian with beautiful hardwood floors, a fireplace and a variety of architectural details. Each of three intimate dining rooms is decorated in bold, shimmering hues accented with gold. Thirty seats are scattered throughout. Professional service and a thoughtful, moderately priced wine list complement Chopra's dishes.

To book reservations for parties of 5 or more, please call the restaurant directly.

Needed a spot for a business dinner and this worked out perfectly. All guests enjoyed the ambiance and the food. Service was excellent despite restaurant being busy. Food was great and vegetarian guest had plenty of choices. Favorites were the Fritter appetizer, the Kulfi ( never had it before but it. Was amazing) and the pork belly main course. Will definitely come back for business and personal. Only issue I have is same with all nice restaurants—wine is grossly marked up.

This is such a great find It’s friendly and comfortable and offers excellent service but the high point is the food. We both had tasting menus. I’m a vegetarian and the chef didn’t blink an eye in adjusting the menu. Each dish was super imaginative and complex, well considered and beautifully presented. True to their name a lot of fun tastes subtly presented. Definitely looking forward to returning.

Didn't enjoy the food. The egg plant dish was just boiled egg plant. Many dishes used the same onion tomato and green chutneys. :(
The fish was under-seasoned and quite bland.

Really enjoyed the Branch Tasting Pairing Menu tonight. Starter: Porcini Mushroom Tea Confit shiitakes barley puffed rice paired with Canard-Duchene Champagne. 1st Course Salmon Veronique Tarragon-nutmeg mousseline, mushroom & grape reduction paired with Alphonse Mellot La Mousiere Sancerre. 2nd Course Smoky Mole Baked Black Cod, warm green papaya noodles, cilantro tom yum paired with Poet’s Leap Riesling. 3rd course Roasted Squab wine-braised pears, cabbage veil, sunchokes paired with Donelan Family Moriah Grenache Syrah. Pre dessert surprise of Vanilla Ice with puffed rice in a covered glass container. Dessert Baby Forelle Pears Yuzu yogurt vanilla brioche wild fennel paired with Chateau du Pouys Sauternes. Very healthy dishes without the starches. The branch menu is always changing depending on what comes from the farm.
