    This was my first time dining at Spice Bazaar. The food was delicious - I’m vegetarian and the spinach dishes and okra were really yummy. My only issue was the noise level in the restaurant. Be prepared to shout during dinner.

    Food and service was really good. Had the braised lamb. It was medium spicy and was delicious. The naan was really good especially when dipping in the sauces of the entrees.

    The restaurant reservation was made on open table. A credit card deposit was required for each guest, so I was expecting a good experience. Our family of 4 was given a table big enough for 1 or 2. There is a huge lamp in the middle of the table with nowhere to put food. There was no room for food. The food is sub par. Most Indian restaurants of quality have tandoor made chicken. This was not that almost certainly. The naan was cold. The apps were cold. The masala dosa croquettes are just a marketing gimmick. The bun app is silly. The biryani is awful. The dessert options are limited and honestly terrible. Cold gulab jamun? It is obvious that the owner fakes an image of a desirable appearing restaurant with the need for credit card reservation with pre made subpar Indian food and cheap dining tables to appear bigger than it is. I was almost ready to ask for a refund. I don’t leave any reviews ever, but this tops my list of my worst restaurant experience. This was chosen as it was my daughter’s birthday and close to Tesla Springfield. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    This was our third or fourth time visiting this restaurant and the food here is consistently delicious. The service is less consistent and it is a bit pricey. However we will continue to visit to enjoy the fabulous food.

    We haven't been to Spice Bazaar in a while, and it was a great dining experience. The food definitely has become something of Indian/American fusion. Great mix of flavors and interesting combinations. The watermelon salad with Tamarind drizzle was a tasty treat. The lamp chops amazing. Everything was so good. Highly recommend.

    They offer a variety of items, with different levels of heat. We always get the garlic Naan with our meals when we go there, which is always great. They are BYO, and this keeps the overall bill lower than at some other restaurants.

    We were a party of two for lunch on a Tuesday afternoon. There was no wait for a table. There was a special prix fixe menu for three courses. The menu said "tasting" but the portions were very generous. To say that the food was "delicious" would be an understatement. The food was amazing. The flavors in each dish were exquisite. The waiter was very attentive. We will most definitely be returning.

    Eating here made me realize this place is just good at social media and marketing. I actually thought the food was decent but it was the poor service that really killed the whole experience for me. If I had one word to describe my first time here, it would be "overrated". First of all, it's like you're walking into an Abercrombie and Fitch or Hollister with how unnecessarily dark it is inside. Not only that, the music is so loud half the time you can't hear what the server is saying nor can they hear you. I think we asked for rice about three times without it ever being brought to the table. My friend's lobster entree was sold out, but they neglected to tell us until about 25 min later. When the time came for the bill, the lobster was still added on even though they ended up getting something entirely different that was cheaper by a few bucks. When I asked if they could fix it for us, the server said I could take a few dollars off tip to compensate. Not sure how that's a good solution as an 18% tip was already built into our bill anyways. I was then able to get the check corrected. Honestly, the giant naan was probably my favorite part of the meal. I can't quite say everything else was worth the price because of the quality and service we received.

    The food was very good. Unfortunately the staff was not accommodating at all. We arrived promptly for our reservation. The host sat us at the table by the entrance door that was wide open. It was over 90 degrees outside. We asked if they could please move us closer inside or to close the door because it was very hot. They refused to do any of that even though there were several available tables further inside. They told us they were reserved. After we finished our meal, we noticed that a few of those tables were still available. We were miserably hot the entire time even though they said they turned up the AC. Unfortunately with the doors wide open, it didn’t help. Food was delicious.

    First we sat outside because we are avoiding indoor dining due to covid. The Service was excellent and the server was attentive to our table. They need a little decoration on the table or seating area outside to provide a better experience. The appetizers we ordered are the watermelon salad which is amazing, the cauliflower was good but our favorite was the chicken bao buns. We shared the mixed grill and we chose the three meats, chicken, salmon and lamb chops. The lamb chops were undercooked and had a weird texture. We ordered eggplant and it was whole pieces in a delicious sauce. We had a good experience and Delicious food overall. I will consider going back for a special occasion.

    Had heard a lot about this place but it turned out to be a disappointment. The presentation was great but the taste was a big let down. The seasoning was off on most dishes with no salt. The tacos on the ship tacos were too dry and likely stale. The crust of the kerelan chicken fry was burnt and was not seasoned well, and some of the seasoning still damp. Likely fried at the wrong temperature. The shrimp moilee was sweet as a dessert - definitely not how it is made. The lemon rice that came with it had no salt what so ever or any tang from the lemon. The butter chicken was also excessively sweet. The dessert was very ordinary as well.

    A group of servers were standing outside and talking loudly and passing comments on their guests. One of the servers, one with tattoo on his arms, had flour on his outfit and looked pretty dirty. He was making cat calls to folks across the street. He even abused one of the guests in the local language. The tables were dirty and the bathroom was stinky and the servers were generally behaving badly. The closing time per their website is 9:45 for Sunday but our server (one with glasses) said they closed by 9 and pestered us from 8:15 to put our entrees order. We came in at 8 and we’re just starting to work on our appetizers but he came 3 times in 10 mins. Finally we left w/o ordering as he started talking loudly about us to the other servers. Feel bad for the owners as they probably don’t know what is going on behind them.

    This was the second time we came here. The first was amazing. I made a reservation via there website through open table. When we got there our waiter from the first time saw us and remembered us which was nice. He had a big smile on his face and was very welcoming. The owner however, gave us a horrible table in the middle of the restaurant which was odd being that there were empty tables that were bigger all over. A different waiter came over and took our order. He was very nice. Other people started to come in and the owners treated them so much better. All two people just like us and we’re given tables along the sides. We informed our waiter that we didn’t appreciate the owner doing that. One of the owners came up to the table and questioned our satisfaction w the table. When we tried to explain she blamed it on open table and said they assigned the seat upon reservation. She walked away and I get a phone call from the restaurant asking if we were coming in for our reservation which was odd after I just told her she sat us in the middle in a small table that couldn’t hold our meals. How did open table reserve this table for me that you sat me at then your calling me to see if I’m coming.? Poor service on an owners behalf as you would think they would want happy customers. Aside from this interaction we did enjoy our food and the waiter service. I don’t know if we would return as the owners made us very uncomfortable and not welcomed.
