Indulge in great eats during a dining experience like no other.

Spice World Sydney is one in a chain of over 500 international Spice Worlds around the globe, and is a dining experience unlike anything Sydney has seen before. Firstly, be prepared to be greeted by one of two robot waiters at the entrance who will seat you at your table and present the menu. The interior here is huge and you are likely to get lost finding your way to the bathroom, but the elegant and exotic decor make it an adventure all its own.

The idea is simple, be presented with your chosen ingredients at your table and cook up a storm at your own hot pot complete with broth, heat and cooking utensils. The items come out looking something bizarre, with the wagyu steak draped around an unwitting Barbie doll as if she's gracing the runway of a Milan fashion show. The order here is to shock and awe — and it doesn't disappoint.

We ordered a soup that was half spicy and half chicken and pork broth, and included a combination of pork belly, vegetables, wagyu and crab meat balls. While the broth cooked away we distracted ourselves on the arcade games and a game of jingo.

Spice World is the kind of place to bring a group of friends and catch up over conversation and great food. The imaginative presentation ensures there'll be plenty of hilarity and the interactive nature of the hot pot itself makes it more than just your usual dining experience. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time as the options here are endless. And with all the games on offer, it's unlikely you'll want to leave.
