The Spice Room which is housed in the same space as its predecessor retains much of the old charm and has kept those famed handcarved wooden ceilings that pay homage to the traditional Newari architecture. Their buffet which was located centrally in the restaurant is now moved towards the back-end providing more open space while also helping add a more finedining feel to the place.
Spice Room has two distinct seating areas both of which have their own unique feel. On one side is a very modern space, with warm and bright colors and a new décor that focuses on minimalistic wall patterns; while the other half provides a much more intimate experience with candle lights and a rustic wooden setting along with a view of the garden. Each space does not take anything away from the dining experience and contrast each other perfectly.
As you walk into the Spice Room, you are quickly seated and presented with the menu. Upon placing your orders you are served a complimentary helping of amuse bouche, an aloo tikki with a grain of pomegranate, which acts as a palate cleanser. While they are not meant to fill your stomach in any way, they do have combined the taste of the pomegranate and the aloo tikki very well.
While your food is being prepared, you can’t help but notice the music being played. It is subtle but way too fast for a fine dining setting. They did notify me that a new playlist was on the way.
