we were here for Lunch. Food is very simple and was served on the table instead of buffet. Good veg/ non veg biryani. Vanila Mango ice cream was very good.

We had a jalfrezi, nawabi and biryani. The first two were heavy on the curry gravy, with a lot of oil. I would have expected more vegetables in a jalfrezi. The biryani was very generous. The highlight was the garlic naan, which was as good as any I've had. The service was pleasant but a little slow.

The foodis absolutely delicious but after having dinner there your clothes need a thorough wash as the smell is intense. A open window would help a lot. But again, the food is very good and the staff is nice. I would go there again.

Two of us had dinner here. Food was really good. We had poppadoms, naan bread and a couple of different curries. Lots of vege option and excellent attentive service.

The Spice Room is an excellent choice for quality Indian food at reasonable prices in Queenstown. The service is fast and friendly and the restaurant is large so seating shouldn't take too long. However, the decor seemed a little dated and drab and could use an update. All the dishes that we ordered were subtly spiced and very flavorful.

I would highly recommend the place as a Takeout, the food is tasty, authentic Indian taste. The actual restaurant had a strong smell of mixture of spices, so that may not work as a place to sit down and eat for everyone.

We ordered takeaway and upon pick up realised we had ordered from the Wanaka restaurant. So great that they were understanding and arranged a new order that was ready in 15 minutes. Great food and Customer service. Thank you...

We had a curry for dinner and we're very impressed. We got in between 5-7pm which meant we each got a curry, a naan, poppadom, and chutney for $20.90. Great curry for the price. Highly recommend!!

Thank Emma J
