Best meal of our 4-day Philly trip! The Duck Crepes were awesome, as was the Shanghai Beef. There were so many interesting things on the menu. Will definitely return if in Philly again.

We had a group of 12 and everyone was happy with the food they ordered. Located near lots of shopping and nightlife, this is a nice little restaurant featuring fusion cuisine. Spice 28 would be great for a date night or friends night. When the weather is nice, they open the front of the restaurant for an al fresco experience.... More

Tasting the food I could understand the reason for the popularity . The menu is varied and includes Chinese , Thai , and Indian food . I started with a delicious cup of Wonton soup. The... More

We went to an event at Spice 28 so I can't comment on it as a restaurant per se, but the space is amazing, the wine choices terrific, and the special cocktails very well made. The food that we had--white bean humus, etc--were great. I would go back for meal.

Highly recommended for the excellent food at this gem of a Center City restaurant. The prices are quite reasonable, esp. for lunch on weekdays. Extensive menu of Asian fusion dishes, in addition to the classic Sichuan ones. Best dishes: Cumin Lamb, Fish (Dry Pepper or Double-Cooked), Shredded Pork with Dried Bean Curd and Chili. Service is very good indeed. Good... More

We got a quick bite there in November and it was so good we took the rest of the family. Service is fast and attentive. On our first trip we were in a hurry because we had to get to an exercise class. The server brought us lots of water to hydrate and brought everything quickly. Mango salad and Sesame... More

This was a last minute reservation, I read a couple of reviews and decided to take a chance. What a great find! The food here is absolutely delicious. I recommend the Cumin lamb and the Shrimp Penang Curry and Sauteed Spinach.

When we find a place that works we revisit it. So on a recent trip to Philly we ate here not once but twice! You may ask then why only four stars and the answer is on our second night the waitress seemed like she'd rather be anywhere but the restaurant at that time, and one dish was prepared wrong... More
