If you want a relaxing dining experience or to take your time relaxing after your meal, this is probably not the place for you.

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.
