This small restaurant is always packed but the tables turn over quickly. If you can't be bothered waiting they do take away as well. You only need to smell the various aromas coming from the tiny kitchen to know Spice I Am is special. They have authenticThai dishes with fresh ingredients. Don't miss it.

As most of the thai food rest in sydney, the price range is quite reasonable and the... More

Great food. We had takeaway from here, and the food is some of the best Thai we have had. Very spicy and full of flavour. Also very fresh. Definitely worth eating here.

OK ..lets not kid ourselves, this place is small, its quick, it doesn't accept cards (cash only) doesn't sell alcohol (you can bring your own) and you don't get any fantastic Sydney views. BUT LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE FOOD! Best thai in Sydney hands down! I go at least once a month. Tasty, fresh, well prepared, full of... More

I spend my life eating Thai food, you would think I would get tired of it. This is one of the best thai meals and I will be back. The pork belly was devine and I enjoyed the penang curry too (smoking hot, but delicious)

Had an excellent meal at the Darlington location. The food was very authentic and the portions were very large. We left with our mouths on fire (!) and our stomachs full! Great meal!

We enjoyed our meal and the place seemed very popular. A bit pricey for night time meal. Good staff.

We just walked back to our hotel from this restaurant & I have to say, this was the best meal we had in Sydney & one of the best in our two weeks in Australia. The food was fresh, flavorful & cooked to perfection. The service was very good as well, very attentive wait staff. Leaving tomorrow to go back... More

It is undeniable that the cuisine at Spice I am is superb: great cooking, fresh ingredients, and well executed. But there are significant problems which make the overall dining experience frustrating and very disappointing. Sydney has its share of wonderful restaurants, but unfortunately it also bears the mantle of having some of the rudest waiters in the world. The staff... More

Almost a shop front but the food is amazing with rapid efficient service. We visited having been recommended by friends and didn't regret it. The dishes we had were great at a very good price. Would definitely go again and not hesitate to recommend.
