(Update Feb 2016: This restaurant is no longer in operation) There was a time when finding good Indian food near The Venetian in Taipa island of Macau was not so easy. There were a couple of not so good Indian set meal options in the food court of The Venetian apart from Aruna Cafe that was not so easy to locate because of the language barrier. After I located Aruna Cafe, I wrote a page on that and explained the easy way to locate the cafe. Later, "Indian Spice" opened a nice outlet in The Venetian food court and started serving good Indian meals and snacks. Then, to make things even better from the Indian food point of view, a really nice Indian and Middle Eastern restaurant called "Spice Garden" came up in the ground floor shopping area of "Galaxy Macau", a huge casino & hotel next to The Venetian. Spice Garden is a large, very well furnished, and very affordable restaurant that serves both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food. I found that prices of food in Spice Garden were a little lower than other Indian restaurants in Macau. Read more below...
