Wonderful find

Wonderful food. Very tasty, beautiful presentation. Only complaint would be not everyone's food arrived at the same time, however, the wait was worth it.

Visited Thai Spice for the first time today. A group of ladies wanting a nice lunch experience. That is exactly what we got. While my Pad Thai wasn't as spicy as expected, it was delicious. Better to be under seasoned than over. Always easy to add heat. The owners are the servers and chef and are very interested in making... More

As we entered the restaurant we were greeted by the owner. We were made to feel at home and the time was taken to explain some of the dishes and suggestions were made. Don't be afraid to try something different. You will find yourself looking at other peoples food presentations which will have you looking for them in the menu.... More

I was welcomed at the door by the owner. He recommended a nice Thai Spice soup with chicken. I also had the Pad Thai. I would recommend this as a nice couples get away too. I look forward to trying other dishes in the future.

This is what Thai food should be. Beautiful and tasty as well as tangy. We love this little place. A mom and pop situation both work their hours with friendliness and quality presentation.

For a Thai restaurant this is on the expensive side. Not super expensive, just high for Thai food. We knew that in advance from reading the reviews, but were ready to spend a bit more for a nice lunch meal. This is in down town Corpus and the ambiance is high end for a Thai food place. White table clothes,... More

The reviews for this restaurant contain a fair number of comments about it being expensive. It's only expensive by comparison with your standard, suburban shopping center Asian restaurant with <$10 lunch specials. But Thai Spice isn't competing with that sort of place; it's aiming for a very different dining experience. The restaurant has an upscale ambience and the table spacing... More

My second Thai review and again a pricey spot. Good authentic Thai made by chef in a quaint restaurant. Fresh pineapple with everything. Enjoyed chicken satay, pad Thai, panang beef (spicy) and sticky rice for dessert. Couple owned restaurant with wife chef, spouse waiter and daughter serving and providing music. Felt like you were in a home more than a... More

Wanted a change from the seafood/BBQ/Tex Mex diet we'd been on ten days so tried here. Having eaten Thai in the Far East and Europe we had high expectations. The starters of chicken satay and crab cakes were ok but the main courses were strangely served in coconuts. We both had different types and in each case the chicken comprised... More

They have a variety of Thai food and we had a business luncheon last year that we all enjoyed our food very much. They had good quality food at reasonable prices.
