Very good food

The dishes here are excellent, service is a bit slow, prices are a bit high however, their food is quite tasty and excellently "thai spiced". Recommend if you are in the area. Family owned, they try very hard for good service although a bit short staffed

Came here during the Corpus Christi Dine Downtown event. The food was a bit pricey but you can tell they aim for quality and presentation as well as good taste. Started with some crispy rolls and shared a Tom Yum soup. My date ordering one of their specialty seafood dishes and I had the green curry, which was served in... More

Food was delicious, but service was slow on a Saturday night, I believe because they were not well able to cope with a loud (and slightly obnoxious) group of a dozen or so extended family members. This was the best and most reasonably priced meal during our weekend stay in Corpus Christi.

Just fancied a Thai meal and this restaurant was en route back to the hotel... So glad we dropped in such lovely owners super friendly but not intrusive more like a great evening with your parents. We both had fresh tasty curries which were beautifully served in a coconut. The accompanying rice, roti and fruit were equally perfect. Come here... More

Got some food to go while staying nearby. The owner was so kind and welcoming while I looked at the menu and waited for my food. The food was absolutely stellar (I did get the normal spiciness Pad Thai and it was still spicy to me- but absolutely delicious!). If I lived here I would eat here all the time!

My mother grew up in Thailand so she know Thai food and raised me with a knowledge and palette for Thai. We were on holiday in Corpus and craving Thai and decided to try Thai Spice. We were not expecting anything fantastic which made the experience at the restaurant all the better. We ordered the spring rolls and satay to... More

Lunch date with my hubby. Owner was sweet, funny and the place is cozy. I tried the spice tea with milk and it wasserst and delicious. Entrées were a #1 with shrimp for me and it was amazing. My hubby had the #4 and it was a bit spicy but very delicious.

The food is very good, I have not had anything that was not. The decor is very dated, it could certainly use some improvement. The owner is a gem, and very gracious.

Loved the Pad Thai. Nice garnish of ripe pineapple. It was a busy restaurant. Glad we took the time to find it.
