Unbelievably tasty

This is a longtime family owned business in Corpus Christi, and the owners' dedication shows. Penne is a masterful chef, and her balances of flavors make every meal I've had there delicious. They also put a lot of work into presentation, and each dish is as beautiful as it is tasty. The absolute... read more

Spent a few days in corpus to enjoy the nice weather and wanted to eat something that was not fast food or chain...so got a recommendation to try this Thai place. I was pretty skeptical and I know Thai food from visiting Thailand about 50 times so I was prepared for disappointment, but my daughter wanted Thai--so off we went... More

The excellent reviews you have been reading lately are all correct. We eat here often and the food is authentic Thai. Pennee and Paul are from Thailand and the quality of the food and the presentation are exceptional. We also suggest that you order edamame before your meal. It is prepared in hot garlic oil and it is delicious. Also,... More

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
