“Good Thai food, small restaurant, no charm, no ambiance, just food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2011

Have been to the Spicy Lime several times over the past few years and while the food has been good, it's not a restaurant I would bring a family to. There is on-street parking and the restaurant is located in downtown New Bedford across from the Probate Court, so the parking is also very limited. The New Bedford area now has a few Thai restaurants that have both great food and relaxing Thai-type atmosphere that I find to be a better experience.

“worth the trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011

Funny little restaurant with limited atmosphere, but if you want good, fresh Thai food with NO MSG, the Spicy Lime is for you. The owners will happily guide you through the menu; they have never disappointed! They sell beer and wine now, too.

“A total hole in the wall serving near fine dining Thai Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

Don't let the exterior turn you off. The Spicy Lime is truly an outstanding experience, food-wise. Ok, the ambience leaves much to be desired, and the food might seem a bit pricey for Thai food, but try it. The food is freshly prepared, ALWAYS, and consistently excellent and overall, very healthful compared with the processed food you'll see elsewhere.

“Best Soup Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011

The coconut based soups are stupendous. Rolled shrimp with minced chicken in sweet and sour sauce was an outrageously fine dish. Every table is filled with happy customers with glowing comments about the food. The dishes are all made from scratch and worth the short wait. This is a very humble spot, but it's all about the food. Highly recommended!

“Fresh food and BYOB, can't beat it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2011

I have dined here 5 times. I get something different every time and I am never disappointed. Any rolled appetizer is great. The fresh rolls are my favorite! The soups are fresh made and have tons of flavor. Curry dishes are customized as spicy as you want. I like the pad thai and any of the chicken dishes. Everything is fresh and doesn't leave you with that fattening feeling when you are done. The decor is simple and I would describe it as cozy inside, but don't let the appearance deceive you. This is top notch food and I would recommend to anyone. Last tip is get the Thai iced tea, perfection!
