Simple and authentic is what I can say. there is nothing fancy about Thai Spice. If you are looking to grab a quick Thai meal, this is the place. The price is cheap and food taste very good. Recommended!

I love a great Thai curry, and usually the flavors have been made a little more Indian when I get it locally. I was very happy to get the yellow curry chicken and see it had potatoes and carrots. The larb is also very good. Great prices and excellent flavor you can't beat.

My spouse and I visited Thai Spice for dinner and found the atmosphere to be lovely. The restaurant was quiet -- there weren't many people there and the waitstaff were friendly and attentive. The food was good. The drunken chicken was a good choice and the fried bananas with coconut ice cream were wonderful. The prices are reasonable and most of the dishes can be made vegetarian if that's your thing.

Hmmmm... worst Thai food ever. Brocolli carrots eggplant in Thai dishes is strange. Cold food, bad lighting, no atmosphere, all the staff on their phone screens, mopping the floor with bleach while you are still eating, and still a lot of money. Pretty disgusting, never again and I beg you to give it a miss. We are not Thai greenhorns and this was bad!

Went to the Thai Spice on Kelvin for lunch. The décor was not that of your typical Thai restaurant, but the food was fabulous. My wife had the sautéed spicy seafood (shrimp, scallops and squid), which was prepared perfectly, with just the right touch of spice. I had the coconut milk red curry with (5 good-sized shrimp, and it was the best I ever had. The sauce was sweet and flavorful. Some Thai places overpower you with heat and call it spicy. At Thai Spice, spicy means flavorful.
