Lovely authentic Thai cuisine

We had a really beautiful meal here. A simple and small set up. This restaurant dishes out the best beef salad and duck curry I've tasted! Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Sydney. Only a short walk from city centre along the Hyde Park. This is a byo restaurant. Certain dishes are only... read more

Guys, here is some tips for you we were a party of three, The waitresses need lots of training on how to do table service to customers. No engagement, un energetic, mumble, dont re-check the order with the customer. The food needs a make over, while delivery was quick, a minute or two for 3 mains, the quality just wasn't... More

I had dinner here last night with a friend. Banana flower chicken dish among others I cant pronounce. Was very tasty food. Service was attentive and pleasant. Meals arrived quickly. It's not a place for a languid meal it's all rather rushed and fast turn over, not that it was a problem for us. Just something to keep in mind... More

A busy Friday night meant that we had to find a local pub for half-an-hour as the restaurant was booked out; no problem there. On our arrival back at Spice I Am we were seated promptly. The menu had a few variations I hadn't seen before. We ordered 3 dishes and they took an age to come out as every... More

I went to this restaurant with friends. I will never go back. The food was not what I ordered. It was just slapped down in front of me. The food we ordered looked and tasted like it was days old. The staff just didn't want to be there I thought. We were asked to hurry up our meal so they... More

This little restaurant was recommended by the reception its at the Vipe Hotel. What a find! Food is made very fresh, excellent blending on flavors. Lots of locals go here and it had a line the whole time we were eating. The Pad Thai was amazing.

I gave this place a glowing review less than a year ago. We have had takeaway from there a few times since which have been getting progressively less good, culminating in this week's experience. I dropped by around 6.45pm and ordered crispy chicken wings, pork belly with chilli jam, green chicken curry and beef and oyster sauce. It was reasonably... More

Great place for a different take on Thai food than the usual. Different dishes with more of a spicy punch. Some portions are on the smaller side, but this is much more traditional to the way they are served in Thailand. Just pick some random things from the menu as it is all great.

Small portions and over priced. Got given the bill and "moved on" before we even finished our drinks. Mediocre service matched with mediocre food.
