A reliable neighbourhood restaurant

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

I came starving from the airport and all it took was the crispy spring rolls and shrimp pad Thai to fill me up -- not to mention the deliciousness involved. And for 9.50, this place is a steal. Would definitely recommend.

This small and popular Thai restaurant in Chelsea serves up some of the best food at a reasonable price. And the service is great. A must try!

Decent Thai food; but not memorable. Quieter than average restaurant, which was nice. Unobtrusive service; almost to a fault.

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.
