Spice 2.0 brings Tikka Pizza, spicy mules, Indian desserts to International Mall

A bar with a vibrant rainbow mural on the wall above the shelves of liquors.

Spice 2.0 is now open at the ever-sprawling International Plaza. The food options at our local shopping and dining destination continue to impress. Just a stones throw from the new gelato cart is an upscale Indian restaurant and bar experience. Spice 2.0 owners say the restaurant is inspired by the grandeur of Indian festivals and weddings.

This is the restaurant’s second location — they operate another award-winning restaurant in Westchase. It was named Tampa Magazine’s Best Indian Restaurant in 2021 and 2022, and could make it a threepeat net year. Spice Kitchen is family-owned and operated, and their goal is to bring to Tampa “the authentic flavors of North Indian cuisine from our hometown, New Delhi.”
