Located at no 2 Phillip Street is the newly opened The Spice Room. Its an indian restaurant located this side of town with well priced mains, good tasting lassis and a nice modern australian/indian fitout that’s rather impressive.

An aerial top down look at the dishes we had: Top Left going clockwise – a Goan Fish Curry, cheese,chicken nan, butter chicken, garlic nan, kurchan chicken (comes with nan), saffron rice and the deliciously flavoursome lamb cutlets in the middle. The one thing you’ll note about the Indian dishes at the Spice Room is that the curries have bold punchies flavour and the portions are designed for sharing. A nan, 2 curries, some nice rice and you’re ready to go

A trio of desserts, a carrot dessert, a rice pudding and dumplings to finish.

The Spice Room at Circular Quay will impress – the decor and feel to the resto is smartly appealing in a deliberately curated and finished space. Food was well priced for this end of town. They also open earlier for dinner and is a popular pre show dinner destination. There’s also a tiered tiffin (think metal thins, that stack up) options for lunch. Us, we just loved the Peshawari style cooking here.
