Absolutely some of the best tasting Indian food I've ever had in my life. Service was outstanding as well. Prices are high, but the experience is worthwhile.

Best Indian I have ever had!! And yes, it was also the most expensive Indian I’ve ever had but the food was worth it. The music is too loud - please, Spice Affair, heed the other comments and please turn down the music.

Food - butter chicken was beyond! Same with coco-Li-flower. So delicious.

The variety on the lunch buffet was amazing. Several chicken dishes and one lamb dish, as well as many vegetarian dishes. The butter chicken was the best I have had. The restaurant offers three types of naan, served hot to the table.

Hello,
We had dinner on Friday 11/23/18 at 8pm , the waiter was Josh. We enjoyed the amazing yummy food , drinks and outstanding service by Josh (not sure of name ) Which I missed in lot of Indian restaurants as per quality of food and service, we decided to come back and feel the same. So we have been there on 11/24/18 for dinner around 9pm. Won’t believe our experience was worst than any other Indian restaurant. The service was really worst by the waiter. He didn’t greet well and we got cold food and there was no check back on us for further order or how the food was until I asked for second drink. As the main course arrived , we were still having at the end of appetizers , plates were suddenly grabbed off. Main course was served without knifes. We ordered onion salad but we got crumbled pieces.
Overall first day - Friday we had enjoyed the food a lot. We felt this was an amazing fine dinning restaurant in LA. As to Saturday it was not worst were we lost the impression. Instead of leaving a review I wanted to send this message. Please train Indian waiters to treat everyone equally and sever with a smile and proper way.
Thanks,
Sai

The food is superb. The service was fine, except the waiter couldn't hear us & got my husband's drink order wrong. The noise level is excessive for an excellent restaurant. We could see people at other tables leaning over their table to hear their companions. At our request, the maitre de turned the background music down, which helped, & he ultimately turned it off, apparently at someone else's request, but the sound level remained unpleasant.

Spice Affair is my favorite Indian Restaurant in Los Angeles area. Everything from ambiance to service to drinks to menu is perfect. They keep changing their menu items so even if you go there often it's not always the same menu.
Also great vegetarian selection. My favorites are golden elixir cocktail, dumaloo lababdar, any variety of Bhindi, All the vegetarian appetizers especially the aloo spinach chat and most importantly the tomato tea. I must have the tomato tea everytime. I'm glad that they keep that on the menu even if the other items change. I would love it if they added authentic masala papad in their menu. I have not found any Indian restaurant yet that served proper masala papad.

Enjoyed a special evening with my husband for our first time at this very classy restaurant. We went early and mid-week so it was nice and quiet. We had cocktails at the fabulous bar and a starter of chili pesto and parmesan naan. Perfect snack to start us off. We then sat in a lovely booth, had wonderful and nicely attentive service and very much enjoyed the ambience. We ordered the coco-li-flower (cauliflower appetizer) which I dipped in the mint chutney. Quite yummy. Our main was the shrimp and scallops moillee which was very tasty with a side of basmati brown rice, garlic naan, and Dum Aloo Hara Masala (stuffed baby potatoes.) We highly recommend all the dishes that we devoured. However, we do not recommend the deserts. We tried two—chocolate molten cake (very disappointing) and the gulabo which was icey. We have had the rose flavored ice cream several times at other restaurants and it was always much creamier. Overall, although somewhat pricey it was a lovely meal in a beautiful setting.

They changed the menu but the food was great Tandori Lamb chops and chicken were excellent! the duck on a skew was wonderful. The only draw back was the price of cocktails at $16 a little on the steep side - Had no Rye Whiskey at the bar for their signature drink,
But I would certainly return to fine Indian cooking.

It was absolutely magnificent to see the type of service they provide. I have been to many restaurants, but the type of courtesy, patience, calmness, these gentlemen showed at Spice Affair was absolutely worth the visit. I would go there for any type of occasion and grab some food and drink and just enjoy the time and the positive vibes around.

This indian food was not good. The uses of spices to bring out flavor was not on point. The menu was eclectic, but just not good. I hate writing this but the service was nice and the decor of the restaurant was fine.
I think the value just is not there. Its better to eat at a hole in the wall but for fine dining indian food, this is not it sadly.

My friend and I came in for lunch one day . It wasn't too busy, but it was filled for such an intimate place. I guess they do buffet lunch for $19 which is a excellent price compared to their menu item prices.
The buffet did come with a basket of nan bread for our table though, which was very nice. Their service is great
They do try to be attentive.
Their Banquet manager Mr Naresh is excellent.
They do validate parking which is very good as parking is a problem in this neighborhood and they have plenty of it under the restaurant.

We’ve been to Spice Affair before. The food quality had been declining. Butter Chicken was bland and the chicken was dark meat and not tender. Delhi Dahba chicken was similarly bland. Dal Makhani is supposed to have some spice to it, but had no kick whatsoever. For the amount we spent (over $200), we expected the food to be exceptional which it definitely was not. Service as always is great. Still, food is way overpriced for the quality, and will try other Indian restaurants in the area next time.
