I find it hard to believe that when your order an entre meal you have to specify to the wait staff it not be brought to you with your main meal...the type print on the menu us wasted here! All dishes were served at exact same time and it was obvious that the small round table was insufficient to hold.... More

Spice I am has a couple of restaurants and this is its cosy branch closest to Central station and Chinatown. Authentic tasting Thai that still suits the western palette. Variety is good, hit up a curry and maybe a noodle and you'll be set. Be prepared to wait if you choose a peak time of day, the place is small... More

Spice I Am is good for a quick meal with friends. The food is good (although some dishes are too spicy for my friends), reasonably priced, BYO, and conveniently close to Central Station. The downside is that the seats are uncomfortable, it is loud, they do rush you, and with no bookings you can sometimes be in for a bit... More

Found this little gem via trip advisor and was very impressed. Food was amazing and the service quick and friendly. We ordered 3 dishes from the specials menu: rice paper rolls filled with delicious vege mix, beef Penang and prawn and chicken stack served on a banana flower.....all unique and delicious. We also had mini grilled pork skewers from the... More

Great food, much of the standard fare found on nearly every Thai restaurant in Sydney but with some unusual and very tastey specials. Reasonably priced. Get there early ( before 6.30) or be prepared to wait. It's worth it.

I remember vividly the first time I had a meal at Spice I am. That was a quick lunch and I had Pad Thai. That experience has never left me, and I have since returned to the restaurant multiple times. The most recent experience was only a few days ago and as always it never disappoint. We had Pad Thai,... More

We were staying near by and stumbled across this great Thai restaurant. It was absolutely packed when we turned up but lucky for us we got straight in. It is BYO only but the staff are great with keeping the water up. The food arrived very quickly and was delicious and fresh. The lemongrass chicken was very tasty and we... More

If you want a relaxing dining experience or to take your time relaxing after your meal, this is probably not the place for you. BUT if you want to eat some of the most amazing food you'll ever put in your mouth you have to go here! I am biased because I have a slight spice/Thai obsession and Spice I... More
