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

Went there twice over my Sydney Vacation because it was sooo good. The food is amazing and it was BYOB. The place is non pretentious and we got accommodated in a street table. Everything was just perfect. Highly Recommended.

The food is just amazing. Low key open air location where you can't book but the tables turn over regularly. And with plenty of bars in the vicinity the short wait is a pleasure. Very spicy street food. Friendly staff and great service make this a must return to venue

If you want a casual and quick Thai meal this is the place but get there before 7pm if you don't want to queue. We sat outside on a winters night but the gas heaters kept us warm and the vibe from surrounding tables was also warm. We chose Massman Duck from the specials menu and stir fried prawns from... More

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.
