The place was crowded when we arrived. Luckily, the friendly security guard was able to find us a table.
I ordered Kung Pao Squid. Geus ordered Curry Prawn. And to be consistent with our "seafood only" theme, we also ordered their seafood fried rice.
The seafood rice was too oily and there were just small bits of squid and shrimp.
I liked the Kung Pao Squid though because squid meat was tender. I tried to research what sauce they used and I found out that the original recipe for Kung Pao came from
The Curry Prawn was nothing extra ordinary. It tastes just like any other curry dish. The plus side though is that in one order you'd get at least 6 medium-sized prawns so at least with this you are getting your money's worth. Other than the prawns and the sauce, you won't find anything else in the dish. There are no vegetables, not much onion, and no garnishes at all.
The dishes they served could've looked more appetizing if they know how to make them more presentable. I wish that when we go back next time, we'd see some kind of effort in terms of dish preparation.
I also expected that they serve roti, or Indian bread usually eaten with curry, for free since we ordered curry but apparently you would have to pay for it.
The waitresses were friendly and helpful.
I also have to write about their security guard. Usually, you would just see the security guard standing by the door but Spice Fusion's guard acted like a manager. He was attentive to the needs of the customers and he was the one who followed up with the waiters/waitresses about the orders.
We were supposed to sit inside but the place was too small and we would literally be rubbing elbows with the occupants of the next table if we opted to stay in the table given to us. So we decided to just stay outside and we were thankful we did because it was unbelievably noisier inside than outside. We suggest that you go there early to get a better table.
