I went there for dinner and had red pumkin curry and spicy eggplant. Curry served in pumkin skin. It was amazingly tasty, spices highlighted with vegetables, right temperature, soft but not pureed pumkin. Eggplants were the best I ever tested. Great tiny place, calm, efficient service.

This was a wonderful find! Very authentic Thai food in a nice atmosphere for a very reasonable price. We had egg rolls, an asparagus tofu daily special (yumm!) and a chicken cashew dish. All were very good.

This food is in no way authentic Thai food. It is bland, bland, bland. The ambiance is mediocre as well. The service was OK and the people who work there seem nice, so I'm sorry to give them a bad review, but the food is just terrible. The name of their restaurant "Thai Spice" is ironic, at best.

We come here often to eat. The food is always delicious. We particularly like the yellow chicken curry, the pumpkin curry (comes in a little pumpkin) and the pad thai. The tastes are yummy and consistent. I like sitting out in their little patio area to view the people going by.

Each time I visit Los Gatos I stop by Thai Spice for their combination fried rice (take out)... with hot sauces. The owner is always most pleasant and the food is great!

Just my observation. It never is even close to as good as eating there and I lived 10 minutes away. Its pretty typical Thai, best (only?) Thai you can find in LG...

Our Los Gatos friends recommended this restaurant, and we couldn't have been happier. We had an assortment of entrees ranging from Pad Thai to curries. All was tasty. You need to have the roti bread to start - it's fresh and warm and oh-so-good!

The food was ok, and they have the standard dishes that most Thai restaurants have--curries, noodle dishes, etc. However, the food was not as spicy or fresh as other Thai restaurants in the BayArea. In addition, the staff are not helpful or friendly, so I won't be going back.

They did not allow me to use the outlet, I needed to charge my iPhone during dinner. Also the waitress could neither tell nor find out which dish has fish sauce (which I am allergic to)
