I appreciated the odd experience I had last night at this sushi/Asian restaurant in Cleveland Park, which is a few blocks north of the zoo. The waitress asked if she could order for me. I said sure. I had a very nice presentation of tea. A bowl of miso completely filled with scallions, tofu, seaweed, and flavor. The soup could... More

We've been here a couple of times before but weren't too impressed; food was OK but oversalted and nothing really grabbed us. This time we were lucky enough to get Oyun for our waitress, and with her guidance ordered a meal that won us over. She paid attention to our likes and made suggestions to suit our mood that evening,... More

My wife and I had a great lunch after getting our taxes done next door. We had a tuna and scallion sushi roll and satay chicken for starters. Both were very good. The sushi was especially nice and fresh. My wife had a dish called caramelized pork. It was like a kind of Mongolian pork but without so much onions... More

I eat at Spices periodically and am always struck by the quality of the ingredients and the tasty results. The service is attentive and the room is relatively quiet. It is a good place for a leisurely lunch. Incredibly, there is usually parking nearby.m

We had an array of dishes from pad Thai, shrimp dumplings, sashimi and chicken teriyaki and each was well prepared. As a Cleveland park restaurant, it stands out compared to the other Asian restaurants in the neighborhood.

Food was served very fast and the not overpriced for the quality. It wasn't very busy but the atmosphere was very good.

There are plenty of great choices on the menu and everyone was able to find several options, even the vegetarians in the group. The portions are really good, especially things like the bulgogi fried rice and the noodles on a boat (which do come on a boat!) and the Pad Thai. Nothing is really spicy, so if you have to... More

Spices is a very reliable Asian restaurant with good food, great space and good attention. The restaurant is large and the decoration is very tasteful. Looks very contemporary Thai, though the food is from all over Asia. To me it is one of the best restaurants in Cleveland Park and my first choice when I meet colleagues or friends in... More
