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

We have eaten at this restaurant several times of the last couple of years and it continues to impress me and develop my understanding of Thai food and culture. Don't ask me to spell or pronounce the owners names. He runs the front of the house and she cooks. Sometimes they have help and sometimes its just the two of... More

I came with my husband and we each had an entree and I had a bowl of the Tom Yum soup. All of the food we had was very delicious and definitely authentic Thai food. The prices however were very high. On the three dishes we spent over $60 not including a tip. The portions for the entrees were good... More

This is our first trip to Corpus Christi and we have searched for an Asian restaurant in town. We decided to have Thai food and picked this restaurant. We ordered 2 dishes but they only served us the first course and forgot our 2nd one. We have been kept waiting for almost an hour until I came to the owner... More

Love this place! I have always herd mixed reviews on Thai Spice, and have been skeptical. The price point is a bit higher than average, but it has a lot going for it. First off, the food was delicious! I decided to go with the classic Pad Thai, and it was by far the best I have ever had. In... More

During a recent business trip I decided to take a casual walk in the vicinity of my hotel and found this quaint Thai restaurant whose owners were charming added to the allure of my experience. I began my meal with coconut water, because I had heard of its nutritional benefits, and once tasted it in a bottle, but never from... More

We arrived the restaurant at 3:30pm on Sunday and were being seated right away. Ordered a fish cake, laab and #3 on the lunch menu. The fish cake was mediocre. It probably comes from some vendors because we have had the same fish cake from other Thai places in Houston. The laab with beef was very good. The beef was... More

Wanted some Thai food when I was here and found this place. Smaller little restaurant with an upscale flare to it. I had the green curry which was very good and spicy. It was served in a coconut and had a quarter slice of pineapple cut up in a very eloquent presentation. Service and delivery of food is not the... More
