Inside the Repulse Bay luxury residential complex, Spices is a staunch favorite among well-heeled locals in search of relaxed dining. The menu has favorites from throughout Asia, and service is friendly and professional. The mango salad and deep-fried prawn cakes are excellent. Other choices include tandoori dishes, satay, and fried noodles, but everything here is a good. The indoor dining room, with high ceilings and wooden tables and floors, can get noisy. If the weather permits, reserve an outdoor table in the evocative colonial courtyard for the full tropical experience.
