My go to place when I want to eat Thai and Indian cuisine. It's consistently delicious and service is good. I eat here 3-4 times a month.

The menu is probably 40% Indian, 60% asian, so be aware. The food was good, but not very good. Interesting, but not wow! A glass of wine starts at euro 11. Yes, wow and so was the bill with all kind of taxes and service fees. Anyhow, a good meal after 19 hours of travelling.

We ordered Indian vegetarian dishes: palak paneer, lasuni (garlic) naan, butter naan and dumwali biryani. We also ordered the Filipino dessert: halo halo finger. The taste was fabulous. The quantities were more than sufficient. The service was excellent. The ambience is great! With P200 tip, it cost us P4199.44, which included takeaways for one person. This is 2-3 times the...

Had heard good reviews so booked a table for three. We were not disappointed with the cocktails or the food. Good variety of food which feels semi Indian and Thai I guess. Lots of great taste and well presented. The team serving though did not seem as attentive as I am used to at the Peninsula. Had to call the... More

I really like this place and eat here regularly when in Makati. The atmosphere is very nice and it is quiet enough for an intimate dinner or business meeting. Always great service and a varied menu of dishes representing many different Asian countries including India, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, etc. You have to try the Nazuk Naan and Roti Canai breads....

We had family dinner at Spices Restaurant at the Pen & it's a good fine dining experience for us & the kids. There were two waiters attending to our table. They offer big servings & they were very attentive to the needs of the three children we were dining with. We will definitely come back & celebrate there again.

Inside a lovely arranged area or in the beautiful extension, the Spices is a really nice place to dine as a couple or with with friends. Excellent food and friendly service, with a good menu selection for all tastes, are characteristics of this not too expensive restaurant, in the centre of Makati, Manila.

We stayed at the Peninsula for 2 nights and we were so looking forward to eating at Spices restaurant. We love Thai food and visited the restaurant. Unfortunately for us the food did not live up to expectations. We ordered 2 starters and 2 main dishes and a naan bread. My husband had the Tom Yum goon soup (not sure... More
