Beautiful food, really fresh and fragrant. Staff were amazing and helpful even though we arrived 10 minutes before closing - they made us very welcome and looked after us. Yum!

I ordered vegetarian fried rice with tofu to go from Spice I Am for $14.50. The dish was very bland and had only a few small pieces of tofu and vegetables. Otherwise it was 95% bland rice. I thought it was very expensive compared to other Thai restaurants in the area and I won't be going back.

Mouth-watering food; convenient location; great prices. No surprises as to why it's so busy, so popular.

Weve been looking for a good Thai place to eat and came across this restaurant through TA. I started with my favourite Tom Kha Gai, and have to say that it was perfect. My partner had the veggie spring rolls and they were as expected. Our order for main course were the green chicken curry and a vegetable yellow curry.... More

Dropped by for a late dinner after checking into Central Station Hotel which was just opposite. The waiters and waitresses were friendly and helpful. The food serving was efficient and the presentation was not too bad for a small restaurant. As for the food, what can I say? Absolute perfection. I eat a lot of Thai food in my home... More

Spice I Am has consistently good Thai food. We eat here regularly every fortnight and it is always delicious. A tip is to get there close to opening, otherwise you will have to wait for a table!

Like Sea Bay, This place gets it right. Great food, happening atmosphere, good prices, terrific service, and BYO for minimal corkage. This place is tiny and expects, I'm sure, reasonably prompt turnover per table. They couldn't hire so many sweet Asian waitpersons if they weren't moving people in and out. Still we did not feel at all rushed. Like all... More
