This restaurant continues to evolve and improve. There are some new vegetarian dishes ( eggplant) that are superb. Everything remains top notch, here. Fortunately, it is near my home, so a long drive isn't necessary. But wherever you are - make the drive.
Website menu featured lunch specials which were not available as dine in options -- which is false advertising. The food was good, but I didn't anticipate spending $60 (before tip) for a lamb dish, eggplant and white rice (no brown rice available). Service was substandard for an expensive meal, especially since there were very few other diners. The waiter brought only the lamb dish and we had to wait for the eggplant. Then the busboy rushed us asking if he could pack up our lunch. Won't be going back soon.
The service started off attentive then we began to get neglected as 2 other parties arrived. Lamb was well cooked but not as flavorful as would be expected. I ordered the Spanish beer and they brought out a Taj Mahal. Water was excellent!
We enjoyed our meal and the service was great
Love this place!
Pretty good food. Not spicy. Recommend.
The best Indian restaurant in Los Angeles! Excellent food and service!
The food was great however very spicy. The price was a little extravagant for the food that is served but it was very good.
Great service with a very friendly staff. Highly recommend for great Indian food
Relaxing vibes and yummy food! Can’t wait to go back and try something new. The parking was kind of hard but we got lucky and found a parking!
After hearing the reviews, we went to spice affair for our anniversary dinner. The ambience in the first room was good but not the private dinning where we were seated.
The service was pathetic,we almost waited for an hour for the waiter to take our order.
Starters were scrumptious but not hot, though manager promised to get it replaced but replacement came after an hour.
Main course was okay.
Manager was trying to compensate poor service by bringing some extra dishes but the damage was already done. We felt bad when we saw these extra dishes in the bill which were deleted on our request.
Overall experience was not good at all, it could have been better to spend the evening at a local restaurant rather than travelling 50 miles to get the so called “Beverly Hills”experience and pay a hefty amount for the food you did not like.
Good food and our host was attentive .. will surely come back !
Fabulous meal! Third time eating at Spice Affair and each time it has been excellent
I had lamb and my dining companion had the butter chicken. We ordered chicken biranyi and buttered Naan.... I do not eat Naan typically but this is light and airy while still having that chew you want.
Our waiter was great to us. Extremely attentive and kind. Answered any questions we had and served us we a full smile under his mask lol. Definitely bringing my family to eat here to try their amazing Indian cuisines!
Ordered daal makhani which was below average , didn’t have the consistency right ( diluted and flavorless ). I didn’t have options which I could order from .
Thanks to the Governor of the State of California, we had to eat on the sidewalk, listening to traffic. Nevertheless, the food and service were great.
Food is very good especially the dhaba chicken is up to my spice level. The quantities are smaller though food taste is excellent
Obviously dining on the street in a windstorm was a challenge, not only to us, but mostly to the waitstaff, who did an amazing job. The food as usual was first rate
Our absolute favourite Indian food in Los Angeles..
Pretty good for a date, I had a good time. CAUTION: it's outside and it's really cold
The best Indian food in town for sure will go there a lot
We received extremely poor service. After making a reservation a week in advance, we got our table 20 mins late. Our food came 50 mins after we had ordered. We didn't get any heat lamps as requested. Other tables received free dessert due to Diwali (an Indian celebration). We came to celebrate Diwali at the restaurant and did not receive any such perks. We did not even get asked what spice levels we wanted our food at. I had to personally ask the manager where our food was and when I told him I was extremely disappointed at the service, I was shown extreme attitude and rudeness. I will not be coming back to this restaurant again. There are so many better Indian restaurants with better service like Cardamom Restaurant in Beverly Hills.
My party and I enjoyed our dining experience at Spice Affair. Firstly, the service was top quality. They frequently checked in on us, made sure our glasses were full, and asked us if we enjoyed everything. The food was amazing! Everything was great! But highlights were definitely the Cocoli Cauliflower and Saag. The samosa and naan were also amazing. Would definitely go again!
I am not the biggest fan of Indian food, but it is my wife's favorite and it was her birthday. So I decided to take her to an Indian food restaurant she had never been to and my research showed Spice Affair was "fine dining" and had some "diner choice" accolades. Since I cannot enjoy anything with chili pepper in it, my wife is the basis for this review. The service was AMAZING...the waiter did his best to help me order what I could eat and even gave my wife a candle and dessert for her bday...however, I wish the food was better. I did order lamb in some mild curry sauce, but the chunks of lamb were not good quality (chewy and dry a bit) My wife ordered her favorite "Yellow Daal" and she said she didn't like it at all. We took it all to go so as not to offend the very nice man waiting for us, but she never ate it. Also, i felt it was pretty overpriced for this quality of food...but again, the service was FIRST CLASS. Sadly, my wife will not come back here. We picked up Mulligatawny Soup to go on way home for her bday dinner from her favorite place.
Very authentic Indian cuisine. Infact some of the regional indian cuisine is so authentic on taste.
Loved the ambience and the crowd. Great service, highly recommended. Lives up to its name and the location - Beverly Hills!
Underwhelmed and overpriced.
Amazing Indian cuisine , excellent customer service. Can’t wait to go back
As usual great food and great service
i was incredibly disappointed by my experience the other night. perhaps it was just an off night or things are that much more challenging with the pandemic - either way, it wasn’t a good night.
My Wife and I were here yesterday for lunch. We called first to make sure they were seating people...they were but were told it would be outside seating only. This restaurant being my wife's favorite Indian restaurant we decided to go and support this local business (not quite local to us as we live in the OC) but we wanted to do our part during this pandemic. We were seated outside, and of course there is no buffet so we got a chance to order from their ala carte menu. For appetizer we ordered the tandoor artichoke hearts, it was awesome...tasted even better with the mint & tamarind sauce. For the entree I ordered delhi dabha chicken curry and my wife ordered nadru kofta...we loved it! Special shoutout to the waiter Mr. Bhavesh and the manager Mr. Kumar. They were so very personable and took every precaution necessary while serving...it was an delightful experience! If you like Indian food and want to support local businesses, drop by to this restaurant.
I find the food to be very good, but pretty expensive. I was there in a party of five and could barely hear the other guests at the other end.
Always a wonderful time with delicious food and drinks.
Tasty Fast Services
Very tasty food with attentive service. Beautiful place and location
The manager was so nice and also the food was so good i hardly write reviews and i just had to write this. Im indian and have high standards for indian food and this food was way beyond my expectations and i wish i could eat here every day thanks a lot rahul dhawan
Amazing food , service was even better
Very happy and I will go back indeed
I have been eating Indian food at this location for over 30 years. After several incarnations I find that Spice Affair is as good and even better in some areas than Gaylords was (my first at this location). Spice Affair has become my favorite Indian restaurant. And I plan on returning many times; in fact I already made reservations for my next culinary experience.
The variety of dishes, quality of service and whole experience were simply outstanding! I would strongly recommend this as a wonderful place for business meetings, date night and more!
always good. the DINE LA menu was intriguing...but it was too tempting to just order favorites off the well rounded menu.
This restaurant continues to improve... it is a neighborhood restaurant or an end point destination. Service is relaxed but efficient, and the food is terrific
