I work in the hospitality/ food and beverage sector and I can definitely say the service was horrifically slow, there was a lack of communication between the waiting staff and the kitchen because 4minutes after our appetisers arrived our entrees arrived barely giving...

We had a fun evening at Spice. It for off to a slow start, but when the food arrived the fun began! We had a variety of dishes which were shared by the table. All of the dishes were delicious.

Spice has great, straight forward Thai cuisine. Service is attentive and efficient. We had pad thai with extra vegetables and it was delicious. Atmosphere is clean.

I usually pass by the neighborhood at the lunch time, so I come here for their lunch special of less than $9 (depending on the main course you order, the price may be different). Even after tax and tips, it usually cost less than $11. For main course, you can order different types of curry, with different meat or tofu.... More

This pace is a must. The food and the drinks are out of this world. It is very expensive but worth the experience.

The food is off the scale, the service is great and the prices are better than reasonable! And their cocktails have quite the kick!! Love this place. I've been twice before and will gladly go again! Yum!

Great lunch special. Noodles are consistently great. Dumplings are crisp and chock full of well cooked meat! Perfectly hot and spicey. Even survives reheating well. Decent amount of meat in dish. Best Thai in Chelsea.

I visited this restaurant with a friend during my stay in Chelsea and I have to say the food was amazing, as I was unsure on what to eat the waitress recommended some good food. We started with a soup that was served with Chicken and some spice, it was very mild and tastey, then this followed by some Dim... More

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
