Had dinner there recently. Malay chicken in a coconut milk and lemongrass sauce. Chicken was dry and stringy. Sauce wasn't very refined either. Thai soup as a starter was good. Service was very kind and attentive.

Have been here a few times and this was the first time in a couple of years - it used to be one of the best in Delhi. It is not as good as what it once was - and you pay a lot - so it really should be. The day I went was lunch, on a Sunday and... More

I visited Imperial Hotel with high expectations as had heard a lot about them. However though the Hotel iis beautiful and has great ambience, the same can't be said about Spice Route. The so called Thai Food is nowhere close to Real Thai Cuisine and the amount we are paying for such food is utter waste. There are many more... More

Manager spotted our taste for spicy and advised to go for the "od" (overdose) which went down very well - spice levels are default set at european level but can be... More

Was in this lovely restaurant some 15 years ago - what a pleasure to be back and still finding this restaurant to be an extraordinary place. Lovely food served by a very kind staff in a place full of atmosphere. Our kind waiter suggested me to try the Indian wine they have on their wine list...which by the way had... More

Visited the restaurant with family. The ambience of the hotel is superb. The visitor is transported to an entirely different world - that of the Raj days. The decor, the paintings, the art pieces are all very well preserved. We took a round of the hotel before entering the restaurant and it was worth every step which we took. The... More

Four of us loved our dinner at this restaurant. It is amazingly beautiful, and the East Asian restaurant sufficiently broad to accommodate a range of palates, for the most timid to the most adventurous.

Met some of my MBA mates for a dinner get-together. There were six of us. We ordered standard food. Per person worked out to be Rs 3000.

Once inside, it is like you are visiting a venue along the old spice route. Each room is unique and interesting. The food was interesting, service excellent, and the spice levels were easily adjustable for the Western palate. The waiters' recommendations were all excellent, even for the neophyte.
