    Hostesses very unorganized.

    Went there for dinner on a sunday night. We had reservations for 9:15, but we weren't seating until 10:15. You would think that with 4 hostesses working at the same time, everything would be super smooth, but nope. When we were finally seated, the table next to ours was empty, and there were two other small tables that were empty. Now that's just ridiculous. Not to mention, that the table next to us was left empty for another hour after we sat down, while people continued to wait. The decor is actually pretty cool looking, and the food is above average. We had the short rib noodles, which i thought could have been better without the soup as it kind of washed away the taste of the tender short rib. But I might have been confused because my tastebuds were numb from those ridiculously spicy chicken wings. Bottom line, if you have lots of time, and wanna go to a cool looking place, go there for above average food, but make sure you are willing to wait for a long time.

    all about the ambience....

    I just went to dinner last night with a group of friends. Originally we were going to participate in Restaurant Week but they offered two seafood dishes out of three choices so we decided to order off the regular menu. I will reiterate the sentiments of other reviewers in that the place itself is GORGEOUS. But that's basically the only top notch aspect. Drinks were fun and different, and I will say the beef skewers as an appetizer were very, very tasty, but overall I was not impressed by the meal. Not even the ovaltine dessert was anything to write home about. The service was poor and I am not one to ever complain or even take notice to subpar service ever. Aside from my friend getting fish sauce spilled on her, (accidents do happen), they were just very slow and inattentive. I would definitely recommend going here if you're into trendy spots, and if I went back it would be strictly for appies and drinks only.

    More about the atmosphere and experience

    When you walk into restaurants like Spice Market, Buddakan, etc. you basically expect the meal to be more about the experience than the food. In this case, I was proved right. Spice Market's cocktails were better than the food by a long shot, which isn't to say that the food was bad by any means. We started with the spicy chicken wing apps (and they are ridiculously spicy so be forewarned), moved onto the skate and the pork vindaloo. The skate was a little over-battered for my taste, although the flavor was excellent. And the chicken wings were also a tad over-sauced (in my opinion). The pork was very tasty, as was the ovaltine kulfi dessert. Nothing was bad, but none of it was exactly overwhelming either. Go for the kumquat or cherry yuzu mojitos and the scene, not the food.

    Good Value.

    Enjoyable lunch there today. Ordered off regular menu, not RW menu. Worth going at least once. Food is solidly good , but as other reviewers here have observed, dont expect anything that will wow you or blew you away. Your culinary life wont be forever altered.. However, ingredients are fresh and food is interesting and flavorful. You do get very good value here as portions are excellent and prices are reasonable.Think of Spice Market as better than Buddakan but not as thrilling as Morimota on a good day.

    ?

    I can only speak about the lunch bento box special, which was practically subpar. The edamame/parmesan soup was this foamy green disaster that tasted bitter. The skate was fried so deeply that I had difficulty biting it. The mango salad was also pretty poor. The only good thing was the sorbet at the end.

    Overrated

    My experience at Spice Market was not good. It is family style but I was with some vegetarians...so we ordered our own dinners. Mine came out within 5 mintues of ordering...then 10 mintues later my friends....then another 10 mintues my other friends dinner. We each had a drink and one entree and shared dessert. We paid $83 each for a dinner that was not filling, nor tasty and a so so mojioto. My food made me so thirsty that when I left I had to down a bottle of water as the beef shortribs were loaded with salt. This is such an overrated place. It does have a hot atmosphere and maybe would be better for just drinks after work. I will not come back here again,

    Good overall

    Their modern interpretations of Indian and Asian dishes do deliver in flavor, color, technique, and presentation. To go a bit further into the tastes, some notes in a few dishes are not quite harmonized as you would experience in some sophisticated or traditional Indian cuisine establishments. But, the kitchen and servers work meticulously, the ingredients are fresh, and the d├ęcor is smashing. A restaurant that I, along with many keep coming back for a good overall experience.
