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!

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 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.

Unfortunately for a restaurant that reiterates casual on the phone, the prices are that of a very refined InDian dining experience, of which Spice Affair is not. Non Indian servers lack the authenticity, the menu is a twist on classic Indian food but is too hard to navigate without taking risks on a meal which is way over priced. Open, airy and not a comfortable dining environment. I think they are a bit lost on what they are attempting to do and their days are numbered. After all, 3 adults and 3 kids and no wine or expensive bottles to drink and the bill with gratuity already included at 20%, was an astounding $475.00!! Never again.

Wow. Now one of our favorite restaurants. It was relatively quiet, as we arrived for a very early dinner. it quickly filled up by the time we left. Attractive, elegant oom design with a romantic ambiance. They really get lighting; soft. They play excellent World style background music (sort of Martini Madness....). The server was knowledgeable, engaged with helping us pick something to our taste.

We started with Baby Naan Trio (Duck, mushroom coconut curry tempered with mustard seeds and curry leaves. She loved it. My plate was Flash Grilled Sea Bass marinated with yogurt, fresh herbs, turmeric. Loved it! We highly recommend this restaurant over all the fine restaurants in the area.

Overpriced tasteless food and the staff is inexperienced. One of our dishes was completely bland and just swimming in heavy cream. When we provided our feedback on the dish, our server responded with “ you win some, you lose some”. That was the level of service we received all night!

We went to Spice Affair because it was close to the Saban Theatre where we were attending a concert. Everything is 5 stars except value, because, after all, this is Beverly Hills, so it is a little pricey. The experience was wonderful because we had a first class waitperson, who was super helpful at just the right times, and gave us all the time we needed to make decisions from a menu that has Indian dishes that are somewhat familiar but with some interesting twists that were really fun and delicious. Because it was a weeknight and quite early (seated at 5:30), the restaurant (which is beautifully decorated) was mostly empty, but the noise was moderate because of a happy hour event going on in the bar area. We don't usually do appetizers, but the tandoori grilled artichoke hearts (our choice) and the slightly crunchy cauliflower in coconut sauce (recommended by our server) were both terrific. Main dishes were tasty too, with one being cooked in a dum (casserole dish with naan over the top like a pastry crust), which was new to us. And if you are a chocolate person, don't pass up the triple chocolate mousse for dessert, even if you think you don't have room--we two shared one between us.

WOW!! What an absolutely wonderful experience we had at this restaurant!! It was our first time there and it was to celebrate my birthday. We had a party of 10 people; originally I booked it on their website for 6 people and got an immediate email confirmation; which I loved. We had to add 4 people the day before, but the app tells you to call the restaurant. I spoke with someone named Nagresh, who made it a pleasant experience to add my extra friends and allowed me to bring in my own birthday cake. Our waiter was named JOSH and he was beyond FANTASTIC at his job; funny, fast service, kept the pace of managing so many of us. The menu has an enormous selection from various parts of India. It came hot, fast and the best part, SO YUMMY!! It was flavorful, perfectly spiced, fragrant; only wished the portion size was bigger; they’re very small portions, but in fairness, the prices justify the quantity of the food. Normally, that would irk me, but this food is such a teaser, you will definitely make this restaurant a permanent dining destination. I hear they have a lunch buffet too, so we’re going to try that experience soon. Oh, I know you want to hear about parking because that’s a rough time trying to find parking, but not when you dine at the restaurant. We valet parked for $7.50 and the parking guy came in to make sure we got our keys. Our friends parked under the building for the same price and dome actually found street parking. Extremely easy parking experience. PLEASE TRY THIS RESTAURANT. You will be so happy and proud to refer to your family and friends. BEST RESTAURANT FOR US THIS YEAR!!

I have loved spice affair both on location and take out until this weekend. The food order on both curry dishes was so, so hot it was inedible. My phone calll to politely request a redo was met not with “what may we do to make you happy”but instead was met with distan and a little cross examination. I was told they would redo the order and I should drive back the original order, which I dutifully repackaged in the original containers and drove all across town to return. I was unceremoniously handed a replacement order whereby the old, cold rice I had returned with the inedible curry was lifted out and put into the new order bag! When I asked for fresh rice, again a look of disdain and a cool “oh so u want new rice as well.......”. If the restaurant had apologized, smiled and been happy to remedy this I would still be a veryhappy customer; but this unhelpful, arrogant, you are a nuisance attitude was rude, unhelpful and so unnecessary. And to add insult to injury the revised order was not up to their usual standard.

Go to this fabulous Indian restaurant. The food was so good and fairly reasonable for LA. The waiter went out of his way to give us information on the dishes and even gave us an extra dessert on the house after learning it was our first visit ~ and yes he knew we were from out of town. I had the lamb bliss, husband had the butter curry chicken. The fried dumpling dessert was sublime.
