Let me begin by saying that, while I like Thai food, I don't love it. I much prefer Japanese or Chinese food, but Corpus Christi doesn't have any very good or great Asian food (other than 'Vietnam,' another place about 2 blocks down the street from Thai Spice, but it is pricey and more of a dinner option). Thai Spice... More

Being pregnant I have been craving Tum Yum soup so finding it on the menu online I knew we had to try it out! It was amazing! Everything was so good! I had the fresh coconut to drink, chicken pot stickers for an appetizer, Tum yum soup and the pad Thai. Even my husband who doesn't branch out in the... More

This is our favorite Asian restaurant in Corpus Christi and it is in the running for our overall favorite; so I admit I am biased. I choose restaurants at which the food tastes good and where the dining experience is pleasurable. IMO Thai Spice scores well in both categories. To those of you who judge a restaurant by whether or... More

Loved visiting with Pennee and Paul, the owners about their food, their life in Texas and enjoyed their food immensely. They are originally from Bangkok. This is a small restaurant, maybe able to seat 35 as well as a small bar seating 5- 7 people. We enjoyed the Lemongrass signature entree with shrimp, the really hot Tom Yum soup (made... More

The food was really good here and the server made sure things were not overly spicy for us. I will visit again. Try the spicy edamame.

The presentation of the food is great, picture worthy. Unfortunately, the flavor doesn't match the presentation. Very, very expensive for lunch. Beware of the owner/chef offering to help you select your dish, she'll help select the most expensive (as you'll find out when you get the bill). While we received our dishes quickly, the service is not the best, we... More

The owners are a couple the husband is the host and waiter and cashier .and the wife is always taking care of the cooking . Which is always amazing ,when you order the curry or anything on the menu... More

Went to this restaurant with my wife and 2 kids on Sunday as most restaurants were closed. I am not sure if the owners are racist (I am of Asian origin), but the service to us was non-existent. Immediately after we sat down, without asking, the Owner-Lady asked the waiter to bring us water without ice. The Owner-Lady asked us... More

Awesome food and very good presentation. We went with 5-6 friends and throughly enjoyed our time. The restaurant location is also right in front of beach.

We had dinner here while in Corpus Christi and were very impressed with the food, the service, and the presentation. Both my husband and I ordered curry dishes .. Green curry for me and beef panang for him. The generous portion was served in a carved coconut half, so that after eating you could enjoy the young coconut inside, and... More
