    Hi,

    [design here](http://www.dropbox.com/s/0olz7gsd29f01un/spice-2.png “design”)

    I’m designing a website for an indian restaurant. Though its not really done, I would like to ask for critiques about it. Honestly I’m stuck on what to put on it. Please suggest any ideas about it.

    Thank you.

    I think this looks great. The only thing I would consider changing would be making the links on the left side a bit darker. Towards the bottom about us and contact us start to get a little harder to read. Other than that I think the fonts are perfect and the colors are great. Nice work.

    Try using standard web fonts, Open Sans is a great font that looks awesome on all platforms. You should try it and replace the custom fonts you added. Also, make the section font a bit bigger but keep the size of the white space of the first line in each paragraph.

    Cheers!

    I’d at least play with using a more vibrant color in the header or footer. Maybe the color changes on a different page to play along with those vibrant Indian colors. Aside from that, very nice minimal look and feel.

    making the image the same width of the whole website will add some effect

    making the image the same width of the whole website will add some effect

    Either this or make the background image position:fixed and size:cover which will then be for every resolution perfect :)

    Thank you guys.

    @justdan, @JoshWhite The image is actually a slider(maybe the Fade effect is better). Yeah i’ll try to play around the colors of the links coz’ really they’re not so readable on some of the slide’s images.

    @PixelClaw Thanks, I’ll look on those web fonts to give a better performance also.

    @vhinmanansala, @markomarkogame
    My first design was a full screen slider, though I discontinued because I’m having hard time making all my text readable. And I tried it on a 21″ screen and I don’t like it. It’s just too big. Looks good though on my dev’ laptop 14″.

    BTW, should I just go for a one-page site or multiple pages? And what icon is best suited for the “About Us” menu?

    Thanks again.

    I really like this header. I’d make the transparency behind the menu a bit less transparent and that’s about it.

    @chester, you could also use this http://unslider.com/ just in case you’ll go for the full width. This also comes in responsive. Hope that helps :)
