My husband and I were visiting Swan Hill on our return to Adelaide and chose this restaurant based on the ratings on Trip Advisor. Our experience was a very favourable one. We loved the feeling of stepping into a little bit of Thailand when we entered the front gate. The service was excellent and food delicious. We had the money... More

We visited here for dinner over the Easter long weekend. We love spicy Thai/ Asian/ Indian foods and they are our preferred cuisine when dining in Melbourne, so we were looking forward to this very much. The restaurant was very busy but we dined late, so service was quick and friendly. 4 of us shared entrees of spring rolls and... More

Sad to hear you did not enjoy. Seems out of character for us. Can assure you we NEVER use a microwave to heat up food. All curries & stir frys are cooked fresh. We pride ourselves on this. 2 out of 5 a bit rough I reckon! Had great feedback on the same night so am unsure what happened for... More

Two of us were up here for work and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. it was recommended as the place to eat by all the people we worked with and we could see why. Lovely food, efficient and friendly service and great ambience. I would definitely eat here again, and strongly recommend.

There's so much hidden from the small car park and main road. Java Spice was an excellent find, with pleasant wait staff and authentic Indonesian foods which tasted divine. Whether you dine inside the main restaurant or in one of the bamboo huts, you'll feel as though you're on Bali (and not in a crappy tourist area like Kuta).

How do I describe the authentically dressed beautiful waiters, the young ladies knew the menu expertly and their suggestions were fabulous, a lovely place to have a meal in gorgeous surroundings. Truly an experience to sit with friends in a unique restaurant even the gardens looked like you were amongst an original Javanese island...incredible

We went as a large grouo and chose to order sides of rice and roti and share our meals. I have been to few places where meals were all excellent. Meals I sampled included the goat curry, two types of chicken curry, Duck, Masaman beef, pork belly, seafood combination, chicken satay, vegetable. All were beautiful. Rarely do you share and...

I came here during the week (Wednesday) without a booking, as I didn't realise how busy it would be! As inside was booked out, we were seated out in a hut even though there was only two of us. I was a bit apprehensive as it was warm, but luckily these huts have fans. Even though we were isolated, the... More
