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

Stopped in after a show across the street at the Joyce. Good service, large menu, very reasonable prices. We picked four appetizers, wife had wine, I had ginger ale. Total w tax and generous tip and out, full and satisfied, under $40. Very good.

This place was recommended by a New Yorker...we certainly did not go wrong. It was very good Thai. I would recommend and the entrees were priced very reasonably. Service was fast and food delivered reasonably quickly. On a Friday evening it was busy but no wait which was surprising.

I've frequented this small restaurant for lunch as my office was close by. If somehow americanized, or globalized, this place serves the right Thai for anyone. No strange spices, no grotesque stuffs frequently found in southeast asian ethnic dishes. Black noodle, Phad thai, any noodles are generally better than regular Thai places. I'll stop by again if I'd be around.

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.
