This restaurant has the best lamb curry I have ever had. Was nice and spicy, and the meat was incredibly soft! We had the chicken phyllo wraps for starters and they too were excellent!Our waitress was always around to ensure we are fine and went out of her way for us!

If you have never had the privilege of eating at this glorious restaurant then you've missed out on one of Durban's finest.
Sunday lunch on a perfect day. Seated overlooking the sea not 100 metres away. We had booked a table for 12 noon but were early and chose to check on whether they were open.
A warm welcome by the owner Russel and his brigade of friendly efficient staff set the tone for a good afternoon. Menus appeared like magic and we had choices of their Special menu, standard menu and the Vegetarian menu. We opted for pasta and my wife selected the vegetarian pasta and I the Prawn pasta with mushrooms. We were not surprised at the quality of the food at all. It was great! my prawns were large, peeled and perfectly cooked to a plump tenderness. Coffee was good but slightly over processed which can be forgiven for this delicate brew.
Our verdict? We will be back, sooner than later. Well done Russell.

Our host Deborah from Venti Dell’Est invited us for the dinner to Spice! Well worth it! The service, the view to the ocean, amazing food and restaurant with the open terrace was amazing experience. We felt safe and taken care of! While in Durban, enjoy your meal here!

We booked a table for lunch & requested a table outside, weather permitting-we got a table on the deck in full sun as there were no more umbrellas available & no offer of solution by staff & management nowhere in sight! We decided to leave the restaurant as it was a very hot day & had no desire to sit in full sun! I wrote a letter of complaint to management & in fairness, they have replied advising that they are addressing the issue of insufficient shade on the deck. Parking is also very difficult and clearly insufficient for the venue. A disappointing first visit as restaurant came well recommended by friends.

We decided to go to Spice as we know we can get excellent meals and a bonus as it's in same road as where we live.
I booked for 14 people and they seemed surprised at such a big party for Thurs. evening. We had a long table against back wall and the service was awesome.
We had a few like meze platters for starters and it was delicious and a lovely way to start our evening with lots of wine off course. The wine selection was good.
Our main meals was delicious. There was Curry quite a few ordered the Curry and it was really good, spicy and tasty. I had The Duck which was really good would have that again for sure.
My husband had the Fish Curry and he was in heaven!
We were all too full for dessert.
Will definitely be back. They have some tables outside overlooking the sea which will be awesome for lunch and I believe they do have a lunch menu as well.
