We were a party of 7 and arrived to welcoming smiles, but thats where the pleasantries ended. The server who took the order differed to the person who brought the food. The miscommunication was so evident between waitstaff since the person placing arriving with the food placed each plate in the same spot on the table without regard of announcing... More

Service was nice. We didn't get a reservation but they let us in anyway and told us that we've got the table for 1 hour. Still okay with it until we realized that they put us on the hottest spot in the restaurant. There is no A/C or a fan so we're sweating after only 5 mins sitting down. Ordered... More

Stopped here after reading the TA reviews. Well worth a visit if you like Thai food. I had a steak red curry with okra which was delicious. Prices are reasonable and service good. The only downside was that it was very warm, albeit the whole if HK is warm at the moment. It would benefit from having air con.

We ended up here the other night by accident, as the restaurant opposite was closed, but it turned out to be one of the best experiences we've had and certainly the best in Hong Kong. The starters were incredible - my husband's soft shell crab was particularly tasty but my prawn cakes were delightful too and not too filling -... More

It's a brilliant Restuarant, their Yellow Thai curry is outstanding and possibly the best I have ever had, it's perfect balance of flavours was truly the highlight of our meals.

Ate here 'solo' when on a business trip and staying near Central HK (Soho area) and it was a superb meal and overall experience... Give Soho Spice a visit, you won't be disappointed. The restaurant is quite thin and narrow but the ambience is great (low lighting and nice furnishings) and the staff were superb. I ordered the Chicken Satay... More

As a vegetarian in Hong Kong, I struggled to find a good restaurant. Soho Spice had decent variety, and more importantly, the food was great. I'd recommend the turmeric flavoured rice.

Just don't bother with this place. We spent the weekend in HK staying on Peel St. so just popped around the corner for a bite to eat. We had great Chinese food at a little street cafe earlier that day and fancied something a little different. We have been travelling in indochina for the last 5 weeks and so the... More

This is a SoHo favourite. Great modern take on SE Asia food. Good value for money. Highly recommended. Eat here regularly both dine in and take away.

Staff are rude, food is not authentic, if you want Thai, go across the road. Poor quality meat, avoid the satay.. It's just wobbly chicken thighs.. Just spent 700 HKD in there and now buying a 2nd dinner elsewhere.
