Impressive in scope, marvelously detailed, laced with drama; the Spice Route pays homage to a phenomenon shrouded in mystery.

The experience at Spice Route is sheer bliss. From the moment one enters, the design is relaxing and indulging. The mixture of eclectic Asian decor, mesmerizing music, and distinctive cuisine is the soul of this spot.

Rare and immediately captivating, yet subdued in style; meticulous in service yet unpretentious; refined in its culinary approach while offering something to satisfy everyone.

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.

Amazing place and night club transformation is amazing to enjoy the night right after your dinner.

Bring your parka! We went for NYE and it was absolutely freezing in the restaurant, almost every person there wore their coats for their entire meal.

Apparently, the venue isn't insulated. It's way too cold to eat dinner here, I'm sure if you're going for drinks and to dance it would be fine?

Shared dishes were all tasty but came out hot but as soon as you scooped it onto your plate it was luke warm and in no time, cold.

Extremely disappointing, because the staff is awesome and so is the space. I feel bad doing this review because the manager did comp our bill (for the food) but it seemed as though he had this same conversation daily.

Its really time to invest in some space heaters.

I ate here last May and it was overall great, so I guess if the weather outside is warm it’s a good choice!

Amazing ambience, great staff, fantastic food. The hot stone steak was a hit! The club atmosphere later was a pleasant surprise. Next time I come to Toronto will definitely visit again!

Spice Route used to be a preferred restaurant when we lived in Toronto. It's now much more a bar than restaurant. The menu has been greatly reduced and the service is very slow and you certainly don't feel special dining there.

What little is left of the menu is fairly good but no longer does it have the fun feel you always had when entering the Spice Route. Guess all good things come to an end. So sad!

I found that the food was not as good as I have had it before. The cost for the portion size was somewhat high. I was expecting more for a restaurant with a good reputation.

Celebrated my birthday here on a Saturday night. Our whole table was very happy with the food and service, our waiter was very kind and accommodating. Would definitely come back!

Went for a birthday and even specified this on request but unfortunately they didn’t do anything special with dessert or anything for the birthday. Not that it is expected, but almost every restaurant does this! Our food was good and came fast but our server came to our table only a few times and then didn’t return for an hour. Overall good experience but service needs some work.

I was disappointed in the food at Spice Route as I have heard great things about it and most restaurants on King West are top notch. The food was just mediocre and not worth the price. The staff was great and the atmosphere was cool but the food isn't worth returning.
