Quick bite to eat

Stopped by with some friends that are new to the area. They've been a few times in the past, the food was decent though somewhat lacking in taste, service was good.

Their food is excellent--from appetizers to entree to coconut cake. Other location in Lakewood Ranch also great. Only difference is Lakewood Ranch location also has excellent Sushi.

We do take out and it's always excellent. The hostess that serves us is pleasant and courteous and the restaurant is very clean.

Wow, what used to be our 'go-to' for Thai cuisine has just headed south. Can't believe what we just experienced ... new menu? Forgetaboutit. Nothing was the same as last time (maybe three months ago), portions were MUCH smaller, prices went up and the Tom Yum Soup that I craved was like dirty dish water, nothing in it, no taste,... More

Being from NYC I did not expect this place to have authentic Thai food! We had a few dishes and they were all excellent. Service was amazing and I give it s five star!

For lunch today, I enjoyed one of the new menu choices. There is a different soup for the days of the week. I will go back on Tuesday for one of my favorites.

We go to Thai Spice a lot. I think it may be as often as twice a week, mostly for lunch, but occasionally for dinner. We love it, everything about it. It is quiet, the food is excellent, they serve the kind of food we enjoy (spicy,not salty). The Spicy Beef Salad is spectacular, as is the Pad Prik. At... More

Always stop by a couple of times when in town. Just love the cashew nut chicken and the basil chicken just a little spicy. Have a Thai coffee as well. Would like to see them offer brown rice some day? They are located in the Bird Bay Plaza.

Have eaten at many Thai restaurants in my time, but this is the first one that put "gravy" on everything. The steamed dumplings, covered with peanut sauce, Pad Prik, covered with some type of "gravy".....not my idea of true Thai. However, food was tasty (though different) and the service good. Maybe it's Midwest Thai. Will most likely not return, better... More

Tucked discreetly away in Bird Bay Shopping Plaza near Big Lots on the Venice Bypass, we discovered Thai Spice, an unassuming small place. Boasting little ambiance but terrific food and a great waitress, we came away hoping to return someday soon! Being a fan of catfish, I was pleasantly surprised by the tantalizing flavors of this crispy presentation of it... More
