We stopped here for dinner before going to a concert. The food always comes out quick and has some awesome flavor. Service is excellent and the prices are fair. The Oriental/Asian atmosphere is very nice and unique. We will definitely be back next time we are in town.
The restaurant is large and open and there were hardly any customers when we were there for dinner, so there was no ambience. We found the main courses reasonably priced and good. The sharing plates not so good. We enjoyed the lettuce wraps and that plate was well priced, but the calamari were tough on the calamari/shrimp dish, and the crab cakes were only 3 tiny pieces so those 2 dishes were well over priced and not very enjoyable. The staff were friendly and the service good. I would return to try the patio, the main courses were a better deal than the appetizers/sharing plates.
Only one of their two heaters was working on the cold Toronto evening I dined here, and suffice to say it was uncomfortably cold inside and we needed to dine wearing our thick winter jackets, as did most other diners. Didn't help warm up hands and feet though. Other than that, ambience was fine with a nice entrance in particular, but the cold inside temp spoiled the occasion. Food was ok, nothing special, expected more from an establishment of this nature (by comparison, Bangkok Garden was a much tastier meal along these same lines).
The food wasn't special but it did taste good. I enjoyed the coconut shrimp tempura and the lemon chicken. The banana aplit tempura dessert was also different from other banana tempuras since the breading is different and has something like mochi but I do wish they made the ice cream scoops bigger. They were tiny. Proportiona doesn't make sense for banana split.
Resto is nice but furnace was down yesterday sp it was super cold. The least they could do was give out free hot tea or coffee but nope. They didn't take the extra mile. They could do better.
I was in Toronto visiting a friend. She mentioned how they were having Winterlicious, and I figured that was a great way to get to know some restaurants in the area. After searching through way too may restaurants, we finally settled on this spot. The drinks were delicious, as was the food. The wait staff were friendly. The place has a huge bar in the middle, so after eating, we had the option to hang around near the bar area. Overall, this was a great dining experience.
Love the ambiance of this place for a late night.
Its a great late dining/lounge.
Nice decor and plenty of space.
Not a place for a quiet date night but would be much better with a group of friends.
Would defintely go back!
I will definitively go back there!
Quite disappointed with the overall service at Spice Route. The drinks were watered down, the food was late--one of our appetizers was sent to a different table, so the rest of our food was cold while we waited for it to come. The food overall was not flavourful and not filling. It was like frozen food that was microwaved! The room was cold too! I will not be going back! 😕
They didn't really have it together.
But comped most of our meal since they recognized we didn't have a great experience, so it was probably an outlier situation.
We had a great time. Thank you!
