Get the Chilli Basil Pork Belly!

Been going to this place for quite a few times and they've been always consistent with their food on every aspect, from the taste, to the serving size and the presentation.

I don't undestand why people still going in that place, is not a restaurant, you eat in the street, dirty and food is too spicy!!! Uneatable!! I love spicy food and thai food but after my experience, I will never go back. Staff very rude and doesn't speak english.

I love this place. It is very inexpensive and the food is great. The place is small and cramped but just full of people enjoying a great meal. I know that an US travel writer once nominated this restaurant as the fourth best in the world. He may have been having a very happy night but I can see what... More

Thai food - the basics to perfection - my wife loved the place for many years already and showed it to me when I moved to Australia - simple but good and spicy if you want it

Spice I Am is, in my opinion, one of the best Thai restaurants in inner Sydney. The restaurant is small but always crowded and a hive of activity. The menu is extensive, the dishes are flavoursome and the service is always fast. Highly recommended for a midweek bite to eat with friends or takeaway.

Management instructs staff to push patrons to scoff food like hyaenas so they can get another sitting down. Half finished plates are whipped away by seagulling waiters.
