The owners were very friendly and we were seated immediately. The food was excellent but for the two of us we had one starter each, one main course each plus rice and I had a dessert. Also had a bottle of wine and the bill came to over $100 which is very overpriced for a Thai restaurant.

Had a wonderful meal and talk with owner, Paul. Food has nice size portions. My favorite was coconut soup. Kids shared an adult meal and had a healthy dinner that they loved. Had a good house wine called Toasted Head, which complemented the spice. Will be back here again and again.

Really delicious food. Presentation of the food is lovely. Just be aware they charge 20% service fee for a party of 3 or more.

Unfortunately I live several hours from Corpus Christi and have only visited a few times, but since discovering Thai Spice, it is a mandatory stop if in town. This may be my favorite Thai restaurant ever. Lunch is OK, but go for dinner. They pull out all the stops on food presentation. The fried tofu is light and melts in... More

I love this restaurant for the delicious, fresh and beautifully presented Thai cuisine. The owners, Ms Penny and Mr Paul, are incredibly polite and attentive, the prices are very reasonable and I've never had a bad meal here. Big you are in downtown CC, skip the fried shrimp on the bayfront and try this place.

This is what I’m looking for when I travel, a mom and pop place that’s been here for seventeen years. The husband seats you, the wife cooks. Vegan? Gluten free? Vegetarian? Just tell her, and she will cook your meal accordingly. Want something not on the menu? Just describe it. Our standard dish is the Pad Thai, which can be... More

Their dishes were below average. It took a very long time to get our food. Service was non existence. We... More

Written by my oldest daughter: As a family, we like to travel and visit a lot of places, and have lived in quite a few as well. We have never been to another restaurant that is authentic and as amazing as this one!!! The food is great, the decor and atmosphere is wonderful, and the restaurant is very clean itself.... More

I have been to this place many times, It is excellent food every time. My wife and I wish we could go more often. The food is presented in a different way each time we go too. Just a great place.

My husband and I love this place. The food is always excellent and the owners and staff are so friendly. Everytime we eat here we get great service/food. Try the Pad Ki Mao level 2-3 or the Thai Beef Salad. Yumm If you are looking for Thai Food look no further then Thai Spice
