I didn't finish my meal...none of my table finished their meal. I've had better Thai elsewhere. Staff was okay. I think we stayed too long as some of our guests arrived later than usual. I'm new (returning back after many years away) to the city, my friends are locals and love this place. I personally would only go again because... More

I enjoyed our trip to spice. We went right after church and it was a great experience. Spice serves Thai food, and they have a great variety of food. The service was impeccable can't complain about anything.

We really enjoyed our trip to Spice Restaurant. The 4 of us each had different meals and each of us were impressed with our choises. The service was good, the menu had a wide selection to choose from. My only negative comment would be that the restaurant was a little too dark. Other than that, we'd definetly be happy to... More

We had the tasting menu which was a great way to sample many outstanding dishes. The service was excellent. I highly recommend it. Only complaint would be that the music was too loud.

One on 20th and 8th and the other on 22nd and 8th. The 20th Street one is simpler and the 22nd St location is bigger and has a little more decor. The food is very good, very reasonable, and also great for take out. They have a nice fixed price lunch. Great for families and for those just beginning to... More

Spice is great... They have good food at very reasonable prices. At lunch time, order an entree and your appetizer is free.

Good location on 8th Ave., but I'm not a fan of their food. The Pad Thai & calamari were good, but not outstanding enough to be really enjoyable. Prices are reasonable though.

There are several locations in New York. They serve up the standard low-cost Thai food. Nothing adventurous to offer so if exotic foods aren't your thing, this place is right up your alley. No frills at all. Just good food. And really efficient with takeout.
