Exotic, atmospheric and transformative of its Crown complex shell, Spice Temple exemplifies the best of high-end dining, where a sense of occasion bordering on fantasy is called for.  The experience and finesse of Neil Perry’s Rockpool dynasty is evident in the accomplished match between food and place. The design has been influenced by street hawker food markets and greatly complements the menu, which draws inspiration from the cuisines of several Chinese provinces.
