    We got there before the dinner-rush came. Food was great and very flavorful. I would definitely go there again. They were a bit understaffed in the front of the house, but lots of restaurants are these days. Amazing portions...you could say they are essentially 'family style'.

    small place in a strip mall located way off the beaten path. stumbled upon this place on Open Table, and was very impressed by the food -- it was fresh tasting and full of flavor. i love exotic spices and found Spice Route's flavor fantastic. the restaurant itself is rather quiet (in that it was very empty) but i went at 6pm on a friday. things started picking up as we left. this will be added to my GoTo list for sure.

    My husband and I visited Spice Route when our intended dinner didn't defrost in time. We ordered our food with medium spice which was perfect for us. Both presentation and taste were wonderful. I could not finish my meal, too much food, so I had it packed to go. We will be back, definitely!

    The ambiance was ok but the food quality and taste was amazing. I am new to eating Indian food and the waiter took his time to explain each dish before I made my choice. Everything I had was cooked perfectly and not too spicy. I will definitely repeat.

    Spice Route is a very quaint restaurant with a nice atmosphere and delicious food. They offer a wide variety of different types of food and everything we ordered as delicious! There were so many things on the menu that we wanted to try and they offer food we couldn’t get just anywhere. The staff was very friendly and quick, and the value was tremendous. We highly recommended this restaurant! You will enjoy!

    The food was delicious, the portion sizes were just about right. Be mindful of the spice levels. We both ordered 'medium' spice levels and to us, they were very hot. Order a side of yogurt just in case to counteract some of the heat! Otherwise, it was a great experience.

    The menu is not strictly Indian. There are a lot of choices and other Asian cuisine is offered. My friend had delicious looking chicken lollipops as an appetizer. My Tom Yung soup was so-so. The fish I had from the entrees was delicious and the portion was generous. The oozing lava cake was yummy but the dumpling dessert was very sweet and a little odd. Service was pleasant.

    We went here one evening for dinner, and it was a fantastic choice. The spice levels were accurate, and the variety has me planning my next experience. There are so many food items to choose from you can never get bored and the combinations are only limited to your imagination.

    Melange was very accommodating. I reserved for six but had an extra person arrive. They were happy to add to our table. Service was a little slow but I think we confused the waitstaff. The menu was varied enough it was acceptable to all those in the party. The food was very good and everyone enjoyed it. I will definitely be back with other friends and I might stop by on occasion for take out.

    The owner and waiter was trying to be overly polite but it became rude....within a 15 min period we were asked 5-6 time if we were ready to order. We felt rushed and uncomfortable. No time to look at the menu and open the wine.
