According to co-owner Mr. Wakas Ather, “Spice Market is offering something unique – the very best of all
the cuisines that you see on the menu. So, we are not a multi-cuisine restaurant that only focuses on one
particular cuisine and tags along with the other ones for the sake of justifying the moniker. It took us a
grueling few months to hand-pick the finest chefs and assemble the respective teams for different
cuisines. The joy ofseeing a family or a group of friends ordering and enjoying food that they like, knowing
that they will get the best of each cuisine they prefer, was the driving force behind our Herculean efforts.
We capture the true essence of a multi-cuisine restaurant.””We are located in the streets of Sarat Bose Road. This place is a perfect blend of classic and modish architecture, where the best of traditional dishes are catered to the urban crowd. It’s a multi-cuisine restaurant, which caters to both families and younger crowds. The menu here is vast and has a lot of variety.” added co-owner Mr. Gaurav Belani.
