While people dont usually come to WNC and think Thai food, Thai Spice is a great choice when you tired of ribs and generic American food. The portions were generous, the ingredients fresh, and the "hot factor" was as ordered. While we have lived in Waynesville for 2 years we have never come in for a meal, we don't eat... More

While it wasn't the best I ever ate the food was good when you need a Thai food fix. I had eggplant with tofu which was good and my husband had ginger pork - he really liked his meal as well as the Thai ice tea. Owner and wife really trying hard to make you feel welcome.

We were reluctant at first to try this restaurant. the Trip advisor reviews were mixed and stated they had a service problem. However, things do turn out for the best. We had planned to go to Saki Sushi restaurant in Waynesville but as many have indicated, their service hours are hit and miss and they were closed this Wednesday night.... More

We have been fans of this place since it opened. They have a new owner and a new chef. We were not happy with our food but the owner resolved everything and even brought out the chef to hear what we had to say. That's customer service!

My daughter and I stopped to pick up carry out food and ordered pad Thai to go. It was very good and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was ordered off the lunch menu, but it was such a large portion we ate it for 2 nights. Don't listen to the negative reviews, go and enjoy fresh Thai food at a reasonable... More

A few years ago we discovered we enjoyed Thai food but we don't live in an area of the country that abounds with Thai restaurants and so we wre pleased to find ouselves in Waynesville, N.C. with a recommendation to eat at Thai Spice in downtown Waynesville....

We love this place! The owners are always gracious and friendly. The food is beyond good! It is our 'treat' dinner place in Waynesville. We love the curries and have sampled many things from the menu over time, always enjoying them but going back to the curry. I guess it's 'comfort food'!

My wife and I entered Thai Spice looking for a fast, tasty dinner.....Boy where we Disappointed! The staff and owner of this restaurant are clueless and should find another line of work. It took us 2-hours to get through our meal. We actually skipped desert because we feared it would cost us another half-hour. The service was so slow that... More

It was such a long waiting time period.we waited for more than an hour.....it was not at all recommended to anyone I will say....very disappointed!!! Food wasn't good as well and expensive too. The only phrase we heard was "we are sorry guys". They were saying to everyone that they are short of chefs. They should have offered free appetizer... More

I've gone to Thai Spice for years and have always enjoyed the food. The restaurant is now under new ownership, and while the food is still good, the atmosphere is downright weird. The walls are covered in terrible art (one piece features empty spray paint cans and a piece of what looks like a mesh plastic shopping bag), country music... More
