Nice and relaxing, modern atmosphere after the noisy streets of NYC. The food was good, lots of choices and easily accommodated adding more veggies to my pad Thai. The chicken fried rice was very tasty, too! Fun and healthy drinks to boot--we ordered the pomegranate cranberry punch and a Pinot Grigio. I would definitely go back. The setup works well... More

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.

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.
