    Service was awful. About 30 minutes after our dinner two peeps from our group started to have terrible stomach aches. In fact, I had to poo a liquid fashion mind you. Not recommended.

    It was good. Went for winterlicious and I've had better asian food on Spadina.

    One of the places to find "beautiful people" for the over 30+ crowd. Bar is loud and the "talent" is quite attractive.

    Sushi Thursday is awesome value

    These guys are hella strict on dress codes for guys on a Saturday night. Don't wear Converse- even if no one can see your feet at a sit down dinner.

    As a vegan, I had their Spicy Stir Fried Eggplant which wasn't spicy at all. It was more sweet, but it was delish. Couldn't complain.

  • Laura D.

    Ps, service is pathetic!! We ordered drinks at the lounge and not only did it take ages for them to take our order, but they charged a drink that never came and complained about not leaving enough tip

    Laura Delgado Ranalli · March 3, 2013
  • Laura D.

    In all honesty, the restaurant is more decor and less good food. It's not bad, but you certainly don't pay for what you get. The Pekin Duck was ok, but if you like decent sized portions go elsewhere

    Laura Delgado Ranalli · March 3, 2013
  • Abir N.

    The amount of food is quite a lot! One dish fills up two people easily!

    Came here for winterlicious and it was a big disappointment. The portions were micro tiny and the quality on par with a food court. Come here for drinks but eat somewhere else beforehand.

    TIFF 2012 TIP: Single TIFF visitors will find something worth looking at at Spice Route. A favourite of the after-work crowd, it's known for its Asian fusion cuisine, stiff well-crafted drinks & scene Read more

  • Patricia M.

    Gorgeous atmosphere but not the best service. It took a server 20 minutes to come to our able after we were seated. Other than that, good food. Try the berry margarita!

    Don't bother with the food (overpriced and nothing special). Come for drinks and enjoy the great ambiance instead.

    See and be-seen spot for style, drinks...oh and they have good food too, but above all: be seen. And cool bathrooms. Groovy.

    Slow service and veggies and beef were cold. The broccoli appears freezer burned.

    Sapporo in bottles. Haven't seen that before.

    Food is fair, but not worth the price. Good for a night out if you don't mind spending the money. Atmosphere is a pretty trendy hang out, but not pretentious.

  • Rahul R.

    Do not look at the picture with skulls and remains on the wall.. I makes the experience of a bistro bizzare.. I wonder why they would put it up in the first place..

    Try the Lemon Glazed Chicken.. Its heavenly..

    What are you doing at spice route at 10am?

  • Bev

    Two things to try: Kobe beef cooked on a rock - really cool experience. And two, the bathrooms are the best thing ever. Just be sure you press the button to exit or you'll be yelled at by attendant.

    Lemongrass and ginger creme brulee is great!

    Their Tempura Calamari and Rock Shrimp pairs incredibly well with Stella Artois Legere.

    Great interior and a step up from most King Street restaurants.

    Overpriced mediocre Asian food. Head over to Chinatown if you want some good Asian food that won't cost u a fortune :p
