Spice Temple

A new realm of Asian dining

Seasoned with inimitable Chinese flavours, Spice Temple’s distinctive dishes are a true sensorial delight. Through in-depth research, contrasting tastes and textures have been perfected; and lesser-known regions’ signature dishes feature prominently. Spice Temple presents a new realm of Asian dining that reflects the Chinese trademark of fine balance.

Founded on the philosophy of faultless service, a deep respect for high quality produce and a long fostered passion for Asian cuisine, Spice Temple Melbourne exemplifies modern Chinese cuisine that is innovative, inspired and authentic.
