Dinner with family

Traveled to the city to meet up with family and decided to have Thai food because this place was recommended. The food was amazing and affordable. I was extremely impressed and will definitely come back again.

Yummy coconut soup, best food ever. They helped explaining in detail the food and were very patient with our large group. They are ok with kids and families. Great refuge during a NYC simmering hot day. Close to the metro also.

Spice has been one of our go to restaurants over the years in the village. It is extremely reasonably priced with great flavours and atmosphere. Have always been happy to recommend to friends visiting NYC. Didn't disappoint us again this year.

Had the Masamman chicken curry here with jasmine rice - was lovely, although the rice portion is very small and the curry huge so I ended up with a lot of curry leftover and no rice to go with it. Bigger rice portions would make it perfect

Nice Thai restaurant in Chelsea district. We had spring rolls, Tom Yum soup and red curry and everything was very tasty. The curry was a huge dish so that we didn't ordered a dessert anymore. Definitely a good place to enjoy Asian food.

Stopped here for lunch with a friend. Nice atmosphere with quick and efficient service. Food was very good and very reasonably priced; bill was under $25 for us both and portion sizes were very reasonable. Would come here again and recommend to others.

With an expansive menu, this Thai restaurant is sure to have a dish for everyone. From the pad thai to the fried rice and curries, every dish we ordered was overflowing with flavor. The ambiance is very nice as well with a dim room and the tables lit by tealights (but be warned, the noise level can get quite high... More

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
