Lovely Indian restaurant with excellent service. Have been here for several occasions and the experience has always been good. It's a bit expensive place but serves its value.
A favorite selection of our family’s . The service is the best, with professional, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly staff. We splurge when we dine at Spice Affair, making sure a takeaway amount.
We were disappointed the chickpea patty has been removed from the menu, but quickly found a few starter replacements.
Another welcome feature is the background music, a nice vibe, and not the typical.
Loved it! Great service and wonderful food!
Family dinner. Great experience!!!
Great restaurant. Food and service is always spectacular.
We are so happy to find delicious Indian cuisine close by, reasonably priced, in a pretty environment, with a full bar, great service, & quiet enough to have a conversation. We highly recommend it, & we will definitely be back.
Food here is always exquisite,,
Amazing service, ambience, and quality of food.
As you walk in the host would greet you. They have a cool bar where you have some nice selection. The servers are very attentive and would keep checking on you. Nevertheless, the cholle masala, Paneer tikka, Dum Aloo Kofta Fig & walnut and soft butter naan was flavorful and delicious. The portions are fine for two guests.
Excellent Indian food in an elegant setting. First class and knowledgeable service. Will go again.
Excellent meal and service
Excellent and very authentic Indian food. Service was wonderful and will definitely go back.
They handled special occasion well including managing to surprise for my wife’s birthday. Offered a nice cake as well. Ambience and service is great. Food is great but would have been 5star if they had more vegetarian curry based options. What we ordered was good but we felt more options could have been beyyer
A lot of the food was greasy and the waiter was arrogant and obnoxious
The appetizers were excellent as well as the main dishes. The waiter was excellent and had good recommendations. The food was very tasty, and the spice level exactly what we asked for.
Best Indian food we’ve had in a long time, and we are frequent travelers of the native country itself.
This was my third visit to this restaurant and I was not disappointed.
The food and the service is excellent.
Great place. Loved the ambiance and everything we ordered were amazing.
Extremely poor service. Made us wait 45 minutes after reserved time. Food quality was poor. They are understaffed and you have to wait forever to place an order or receive your food. I would not recommend to anyone.
The food here is excellent but pricey for what you get. Service was mediocre.
Had a great time during the middle of the week. Was just getting started for dinner. Food was great. Server did a great job helping us order. I absolutely will suggest it to others.
The food is amazing but the desserts were horrible!!
So when the food set the bar so high you expect the desserts to do the same but we were very disappointed.
We were celebrating 2 Birthday so we ordered the Mengo mousse, raspberries mousse, the cottage cheese dessert and the chocolate molten cake.
With no exceptions they we didn’t like any one of them.
But again the food is creative and so delicious so just go there to eat and skip dessert.
This is a neighborhood restaurant that people travel far and wide to dine in. The brunch is great, the service always attentive, and the spacing between tables ensures privacy.
The food, ambiance and staff made our experience truly memorable. Our favorites were the samosas, lamb shank saufiyani, chicken tandoori and black pepper shrimp (no longer on the menu but they went above and beyond to make it for us). Definitely recommended!
We went for the Valentine's day priz fixe tasting and it was not worth it. We were rushed, and the food was too spicy and we were never consulted/informed about spiciness level. If you are going to do a Prix fixe menu you need to take the time to explain what it is you are receiving not just dropping off the plate and moving on. The decorations were tacky and the lighting was too bright, they need to work on their ambiance. The one nice touch was a free rose and the drinks were good.
We are fans of Indian food and in the past I have had good experiences at Space Affair. Going there on Valentine’s Day we found the menu to be limited and for the three of us with one round of drinks and a built-in tip of 20% we spent close to $400, That is excessive.
Some of the finest Indian food spiced at the perfect level of flavor not necessarily heat. First class furniture and ambiance. Professional staff. Not the place to find a great dining value. Probably one of the most expensive restaurants in Beverly Hills but was worth it.
One of the best Indian food restaurants in LA
The food was very good. But, it is Dine LA week and we had to ask for the special menu. The choices were varied and the meal was very enjoyable. We were celebrating my friend’s birthday and although I noted this on the reservation, it was not acknowledged at all. The surprise was when the bill arrived .... $7.00 for hot tea. This was not exotic tea —- there were a few Bigelow tea bags on a plate. Not sure that even in the finest restaurants that the charge for tea is so overpriced.
This place was amazing! Went for lunch. The food was so good! The ambience was great! New favorite restaurant in LA
Great! Very good service but closes too early for lunch
I came because of the raving reviews, but to us it was dissapointing. It was just ok, nothing more.
Menu looked good for new year's eve but the food was below par.
4 course meal top chef style was a major let down with food cold, under cooked, bland and missing seasoning.
A chilled coke and desert were the only face saver.
Overly priced, with gratuity on top for below quality food caused a heartburn.
Exceptional service from the moment we entered to the moment we left. Dhaba chicken was very very good. The other dishes we ordered were also above average. We really appreciated the free dessert that they brought to our table once they realized that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. Overall a very good experience.
Loved it!! Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Indian food. My wife and I are Indian and are very picky about our cuisine!! The food was really really good and was not floating in a cup of oil, unlike most other Indian restaurants. It was tasty and had a chic feel to the food. Would definitely recommend the Tomato tea, dum aloo and the dum biryani. Will definitely come back.
Meh! This place lives on past reputation. Menu is appetising but nowhere lives up to its hype. Food was poorly presented and mediocre. If this is the best Indian LA can offer, there must be a business opportunity or else angelenos don’t know what modern Indian cuisine tastes like....
Food was good, service could have been a little better, it was a weekday and hope this is why! Not sure if I’ll be back, maybe for brunch.
Lovely restaurant. Went before a concert at the Saban Theatre. Do allow enough time as they don't rush here. 1 hour was not enough for dinner. Food was very authentic and fresh. Service was fantastic. I wasn't familiar with the dishes, and our waitress Kensey was fabulous. It's a dark restaurant, and with small calligraphy printed menu, bring your glasses ! I couldn't read their fancy print for the life of me. The Potato Sphere & Spinach Chaat was the best appetizer ever - whatever it was. lol.
There was nothing horrible about our experience here- the food was decent Indian fare, but it was not what we were hoping for based on the prices, photos and other descriptions. We were looking for an upscale place for progressive, modern takes in Indian food and instead we largely found solid versions of the same dishes offered many other places. We were also hoping for an elegant, adult atmosphere for a special night out without the kids. Instead we found ourselves paying $25-30 per entree and surrounded by tables with children. So if you are looking for solid, standard Indian food at fine dining prices with a family friendly atmosphere, your search is over.
We went to Spice Affair for our anniversary on Sunday night .
We have been to the restaurant many times, the food used to be good .
Seems like there was a new cook or chef .
We ordered the traditional Indian dishes like Butter chicken , Daal makhani , fig and Walnut kofta and Bhindi .
Butter chicken was loaded with cream not any different than the strip mall Indian restaurants , dal makhani was bland , kofta had the same gravy and color like makhni ( this dish was really bad) , bhindi was ok .
The appetizers were little better , curry leaf chicken , coco cauliflower had a Sweetish taste , moong daal tiki was good .
For restaurant of this caliber serving very average generic food is really sad .
I thing we wasted a good $250.00 .
Owners please mAke a note , we love your restaurant hopefully you will fix the quality of food .
The service was excellent .
