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.

Lunch at Spices at Repulse Bay was an accident; we were supposed to go to The Verandah, but it was closed. A sign invited us to join them at Spices instead. Downstairs from The Verandah, we enjoyed the alfresco setting (warm day, South China Sea glittering over my husband's shoulder). The food was wonderful -- and the concept is really special. It features a small selection of dishes from India, Indonesia, Korea, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand and
Singapore -- culinary representatives from countries and peoples that Hong Kong traded with in the good ol' days. Great concept, well-executed.

We ate here outside on a Saturday evening when you could choose from separate buffets of Indian,Vietnamese,Tai and Japanese dishes.There was also a barbeque and a variety of sweets for each area.The range on offer was absolutely fantastic and you could eat as much as you liked going back as many times as you wanted.They did mention it only happened when there was not a Saturday wedding reception so check if you don't want to be disappointed.Also booking
is advisable as it was very busy.

Dishes can be made to taste. In other words, those who love spicy food can get all they can handle. Other meals can be made with a milder touch. Great variety between Thai, Indian and other cuisines.
