Our love of exotic food is fulfilled at Malaka Spice.Well moulded to hit the sweet spot between authenticity and localisation. Great variety of malay, Vietnamese n thai food along with some more fusion varieties. Food was super. Very light tasty and quick service.If you are craving for some spicy curry with coconut milk, its the Thai chicken curry. Chicken in Pandanu : The chicken was marinated perfectly . It blended very well with the Side Sauce. highly recommended. Nice place for trying different type of foods.
Nice restaurant serving South East Asian food that is quite localized.The thai curries with the roti jhala are a must-try here .Quite loved the starter variety and their Malaka special ice tea was a hit and most refreshing for the hot afternoon. Great location and nice seating comfort particularly in the open and service standard is very good.Service is good. Valet parking is good to save from parking hassle.
Malaka Spice a beautiful place, where you are mesmerized by the ambiance , the twinkling lights and lanterns.. Having Heard a lot of good things about food in Malaka Spice, I went with loads of expectations. And I was really disappointed with the overall taste and service. The fish satay was really smelly and not quite tasty, the veg paneer crispy was ok, the chicken in the leaf preparation was bland. The service was not quite up to the mark. The waiters In spite of repeatedly telling the order were not getting it. I have been to Malaka Street couple of times and I love it. They do have some items similar, which we had ordered and were disappointed. I do not know whether this was one of the things or a bad day. But all in all I was disappointed . Didn't match up to the expectations. I prefer to go to Malaka Street although it doesn't have very good ambiance like Malaka Spice, the food is consistently tasty. Only saving grace for our dinner was hot choco brownie with vanilla ice cream. It was superb.
Ambiance :The ambiance of the place is nice. With beautiful stars put up on the trees, to beautiful lights above your table. The ambiance of the place is pretty cool.Food : I liked the Thai Curry with mushrooms in it. the starters we tried were okay, nothing great. For desserts we had the apple crumble and the chocolate brownie. The brownie was hot and with ice-cream, it tasted even more delicious. The apple crumble was okayish.Service :The service of this place is awful. They take too much time to serve, and the waiters don't know properly about their own menu.It is disappointing,and they definitely need to improve their service and food.#Value For Money :Not Value for Money for me.Overall, an average experience.
Malaka Spice just never disappoints! The food, the ambiance is always just awesome. That's the reason I don't mind being in waiting to get a table on weekends! Also the offers going on drinks gives me and my friends yet another reason to land up at M Spice! For appetizers We Tried out their Top Hats, Chicken Momos, Grilled Chicken in Sea leaves and Thai curry along with coriander Rice for main course. We also had beer and white wine to go by. What really surprises me is the fact that it can deliver amazing quality every time.
Want to say it aloud, this place is absolutely BRILLIANT, from the service to the food, not to mention the decor and the attention to every single detail. (the menu is so great that I read it with greed ) We were in Pune for two days and surfing on burrp where to go in koregaon park. We gave a try to Malaka Spice and after reading most of the reviews we decided to give a try . The ingredients used here are very fresh. The spices are combined to the food with such finesse that it expresses for me the quintessence of south east Asian food: colorful, vivid, delicately spiced and tasty. Try everything (the tangy green papaya salad, the soups, thai curries, and so on). More than a great experience for the palate, we enjoyed the ambiance (eat outside please!), and the numerous "personal touches" that make this restaurant unique! I signed up on burrp! today to be able to comment on Malaka Spice restaurant. One last thing: why not in Mumbai Malaka ?
The Ambiance is just mesmerizing .. Perfectly lighted place, it has two places to sit. One is the AC room while other is in garden. AC room is nice but the one in the Garden is the best .. On the table you will a Candle which just adds to mood .. but please the mosquitoes may be lurking around to suck your blood out. Management: please arrange for some mosquito repellants. the staff helped us in proper selection and they were really helpful.For starters, we ordered Lotus Stem Tango, which was undoubtedly delicious, fresh and properly cooked and Top Hats, which was good too. but, Lotus Stem was the show stealer. Chicken in Pandanu - Boneless kababs marinated in herbs and thai paste, fried wrapped in pandanu leaves. exhibitions by various artists every few days and have monetized on wall real estate. Great idea and gives an artsy feel. May go again, especially if they have a southeast Asian food festival ;) cheers
For all the great reviews I've read, I'm guessing their standards have been pushed off the cliff. I haven't had such bad Thai food in a very long time. We ordered The mutton chops which were partially raw and served cold. We told our server about it and although she offered to replace the dish, we politely declined since we had eaten quite a bit. We then ordered the Prawn Satay. This was tasty but again it was served cold in spite of telling them to ensure it is served hot. For the main course we ordered red Thai curry and steamed rice. It has to be the worst Thai curry I have eaten in a while. The only thing I enjoyed that evening more than the ambiance as the Kaffir Lime Mojito. Interesting twist to the traditional cocktail. For three dishes and four drinks we paid Rs 3,500 bucks. So not worth the money.
Unfortunately Malaka Spice is not a place I would recommend to anybody. Right now all they have working for them is their ambience and a good reputation considering they must have served great food once upon a time.
Ambiance: It was a warm, pleasant night and we decided to sit out. A short walk led us to the open area which reminded me more of an Italian al fresco setup - the tables were smallish and made of tiles and without cover sheets and garden variety seating. They had set up many hydromisting fans (+). Dessert counter on one side and bar on the other. Mutton chops is the best dish on their menu. Its to die for. Being a graphic designer their menu card and restaurant graphics attracted me more. Not many places in India usually serve authentic South Asian food. Its always tweaked to suite the Indian taste buds. But this cosy place in Koregaon Park, Pune called Malaka Spice is leagues apart. The best thing about Malaka Spice is that it doesnt compromise on the authenticity of the food. Also enough information is provided in the menu card (one of the best menu cards Iv seen) about the dishes; so first timers need not worry. They have dishes from every part of the Orient, be it Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Burma or China. ;) Only part I felt bad was, I noticed that many diners were smoking on the tables so inquired with the staff as per the smoking policy. She apologized for the inconvenience and informed me that it was permitted outdoors. Now that was surprising! I thought the recent law does not allow smoking in any part of the restaurant, or even office balconies. So, are they flouting that?
My favorite sunday hangout - most food lovers who know what their palate is yearning for would have a pre-decided menu when going yo Malaka Spice. Enjoy a perfect Sunday afternoon with Thai Mutton Chops and a Malaka Prawn Tom Kha Soup - not to mention a mojito to complement the experience!
Malaka Spice is my no.1 choice for pan-Asian food when at KP. The menu is elaborate with some great Chef's special. The prices are also fine, quite value for money when you factor in the nice buzzy, ambiance. Will be there more and more. I love the lamb there and the Papaya salad.
Malaka Spice has been a favorite dining destination of mine for the last 7 years. Feeling a craving for great pan-Asian cooking in the foodie lanes of Koregaon Park? Look no further. Malaka Spice offers a dazzling varied menu from many corners of Asia, in a pleasant, indoor and outdoor decor. You'll find all your typical, known favorites, but also some Chef's twists that are great to eat. If you have a slightly adventurous streak, go for those. Pricing is competitive, and you can have drinks to accompany your food. Try the Papaya Salad, Prawn Bang Bang and the Duck dishes! I'll be going there again.. and again... and again...
A great place which gave me great memories to live with. the food is way delicious. Mutton chops is the best dish on their menu. its to die for. Being a graphic designer their menu card and restaurant graphics attract me more. A great South-Asian resturant in Pune.
the restaurant is basically for non-vegetarians.Being a vegetarian i was very hesitant.the reason for giving it five stars is that the dishes that we tried were ALL veg and still were unique and very tasty.there was a personal touch to the service as each table had a specific person. I tried Thai noodles suggested by the person serving our table and i did not regret his choice.they were spicy and just yummy.Worth a visit even for vegetarians.
Been here last Sunday with my wife and my wife just loved the ambience. We dine a lot outside and also internationally, but Malaka spice has a very non-intrusive, calm, tasteful feel about the whole place. The entree, main course and dessert were amazing as usual. Our server was Neeta and she was awesome as well as quick. A wholesome and wowwww experience. A sunday well spent and also as it was Jack Daniel's Birthday month, got to win some stuff from JD marketing female there. Not to forget the usual Malaka touch which makes the place special is the attention by managers and operations. Many many more years lurking ahead...
Situated at Koregaon Park in the heart of the city, this is one of the finest places for having South Asian Food .. The Ambiance is just mesmerizing ..

Tasted the South East Asian Cuisine for the first, Malaka Spice will not disappoint you with the food, the food tastes great with the ingredient giving a unique flavour to your senses. The ambiance is also good, candle lit and perfect for a romantic outing. Pros: Great food, Good Ambiance and good service. Cons: Beware if you are sitting outside, the mosquitoes may be lurking around to suck your blood out. Management: please arrange for some mosquito repellents.
