The Orchid Room

Red Spice Road

Red Spice Road is an award-winning South East Asian-style dining experience in the heart of Melbourne. Our communal dining style embodies the spirit of the family unit in Asia, and it is this sense of community that we strive to replicate. Shared dishes are the norm, whereas we punctuate intimate bursts of flavour for the start of the meal to set the stage, and at the end of the meal for reflection.

Led by acclaimed chef John McLeay, our menu emphasises freshness, presentation and above all, flavour.

Burma Lane


The Apples + Pears group are excited to bring you Burma Lane, a contemporary Australian take on the best of Burmese cuisine. The idea sprang from a sold-out, raved about, Burmese experience put on by the Red Spice Road crew during the 2013 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival Laneway events.

Located at the Paris end of Little Collins Street, between Russell Street and Exhibition Street, come and experience a taste of South East Asia's long-forgotten, but deliciously different neighbour today!
