Directions to The Spice Shop
Taipei City 's eatery, The Spice Shop, is the sibling to a number of other Indian restaurants throughout the island Taiwan. The Spice Shop is a delectable option for anyone craving the taste of authentic Indian cuisine, particularly the noble delicacies of northern India.
Hailing from a family of restaurateurs, The Spice Shop's chef serves up all of India's well-loved favourites: beef madras, mutton bhuna, chicken tikka... you know the drill. Chicken tikka and fresh palak paneer (from spinach and homemade cheese) are the flavourful favourites of patrons at The Spice Shop. Be sure to sample The Spice Shop's signature tandoori chicken. Made to perfection in the Mughlai style, chicken tandoori here is marinated in yoghurt with fragrant herbs and spices. Another dish to delight in is The Spice Shop's notably delicious biryani. What might ordinarily be just another rice based meal, is presented as a traditional Mughlai Dum Briyani - tender meat and fluffy rice in all of its intoxicating, authentic aromas. The Spice Shop keeps its menu fairly limited in order to do what they do WELL. Still, there is plenty to choose from even for those less keen on spicy food and a number of vegetarian delicacies to feed vegetarian friends into a state of docility.
In Taipei City, Indian cuisine can be on the pricey side when compared to other local dishes. However, The Spice Shop offers delicious, authentic Indian food at fair prices, with an average meal coming in at $500 NT+ per person. A comfortable, upmarket setting for a deliciously spicy dish. The spice Shop is in the Shilin area, situated nearest Taipei City's Shilin MRT station (Red Line).
Well-suited to the district in which it is situated (Tianmu) The Spice Shop itself is an upmarket eatery, with glamorous trimmings - a thoroughly comfortable space that is accommodating to families but also well suited to semiformal fine dining. The Spice Shop is open for lunch and dinner throughout the week, but closes between meals so be sure to check the opening times before heading through.
