Our Philosophy

Honesty is the key in creating a good meal: we focus on authentic & true flavours. At Spice Tree, there are 3 fundamental values that we strongly believe in and strive to maintain:

Authentic Flavours: Chef Thiru hand picks spices and seasoning from the best suppliers and importers, which does not contain any artificial preservatives or flavourings. We take extra care in our cooking methods to ensure that the full aroma and fragrance of the spices are extracted. We combine various flavours & cooking methods from all over India ranging from Northern mountainous herbs, to the Southern coastal spices.

Quality: "The proof of the pudding is in the eating" - It is that simple. Our signature of quality lies in the food we prepare. From creating and delivering fine food items to ensuring that in every step of the process, quality is maintained. Not only in food, but also in customer service, we strive to make sure that our clients and guests experience the best quality of service.

Creativity: Located in Canada's silicon valley, influenced by the surrounding enterprising businesses, we too strive for continuous improvement. From establishing systems to make it easy for customers (Ordering online) to creating imaginative (yet authentic) dishes/menu to suit your taste buds and needs, we drive to be at the forefront creating value through innovative means.
