Apologies for the lack of photos. It was too dark.
Spice Temple is a popular place for its “fresh”-ness and unusual flavours. It's OK at a stretch and the ingredients are good quality but it's not satisfying. The flavours taste watered down, a number of the dishes were supposedly the spiciest on the menu but didn't rate and the underlying thought was "you're paying 2-3 times the price for something that does not seem 2-3 times better than what you've eaten before".
Best dish? Chocolate and Caramelised Peanut Parfait. Find the regional China in that…
