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.

Food is great and cooked fresh each order. It does take a while to get your food but it is all made fresh so we didn't mind the wait. Prices were a little high but the food was great. Soup was served in a very small dish which was not worth the money. Pleasant surprise for our first time here.

This was a nice place with real good Thai food. My only complaint is that it took a long time to get the food brought to our table of 4.

We went there for lunch. The special was beautifully presented with fresh pineapple artfully cut. After eating at other restaurants in the area it was a refreshing change.

If you have the time and money, you won't be disappointed! Mom and Pop operation ( which is part of the appeal). Only the two operating the kitchen, bar, waiting and cleaning tables! Food is fresh and beautifully presented. If you are wanting fast "in and out" service, go to Panda Express.

Ridiculously overpriced, disgusting dishes (if we knew they served frog´s legs we would never have entered this place), terrible service (we got wrong beverages and had to wait nearly half an hour for the check after finishing our meal), average food, and a shameless attempt to charge (a lot!) too much for dishes we never ate. The visit at Thai... More
