We have been there many times and are consistently happy about the food (very good) and the very resonnable prices. This is not a luxury place but this is a great value.

We visited Spice near Union Square and had a good Thai meal, they offer a wide menu and full bar. The restaurant was nicely appointed and offered a quiet atmosphere where it was easy to converse over dinner.

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.
