Best Thai I've had in awhile

We had the Pad Kee Mao (my favorite) and it was delicious! I got medium spicy and it wasn't mouth burning hot. Just the right amount of spicy. Also had the Pad Thai no spice and it was amazing. Seasonings and spices were perfect. Also had the chicken satay and that was great. Peanut sauce had a... read more

It's super cute and romantic for just the two of you, the staff is extremely nice, and the food is amazing! It's fast and reasonably priced, I wish I lived in the area so I could frequent the place. There were a few people that came in that you could tell were regulars which is always a good sign.

We had lunch there and it was fabulous. My wife is Thai and I enjoy the food very much. When we first saw the lunch menu, we were quite puzzled by the "relatively" high prices. It was worth every penny. Presentation, 9/10, taste 9/10, creativeness 10/10. Try when in the harbor district. You will not be disappointed.

The food was good but not excellent, the service was kind and polite. The decor was mediocre at best. It is really overpriced for what it is.

We eat at Thai Spice every time we come to Corpus and its been one year since we were there last. I had the Panange(sp) curry which was 2 out of 4 peppers. It was plenty spicy and excellent. I did not see the owner this time, I did see his wife the cook and they had three young Thai... More

This place was one of my favorites after visiting Corpus Christi, the food was so fresh and cooked just right. It was clean, nice, and welcoming. The staff was great, very helpful with the menu and very friendly.

We visit this restaurant every time we pass through Corpus and I just can't say enough good things about it! The food is absolutely delicious. It is presented beautifully and the flavor... Yum! The owner is the nicest man and always takes a moment to stop and visit with my family and make our little girl feel so special. He... More
