At least the food's stellar – Top Spice is a place that puts an interesting twist on Thai and Malaysian cuisine. Everything that I've ever gotten has been good, but I have noted a lack of consistency when ordering the same dishes on seperate occasions. My favorites are the Masaman Curry and the catfish, as well as the very meaty Tom Ka Ghai soup. Don't be afraid to tell them to spice your meal up a bit ; without this some of their dishes can be a little too pedestrian and bland. You can definitely get better Thai food at a more traditional Thai restaurant (and doubtless better service), but Top Spice's menu variety is hard to beat. However, the servers basically ignore you unless you make an effort to flag them down. This can nearly ruin a dining experience when it takes the servers 30 minutes to take your drink order (has happened on multiple occasions).Also, don't go with a date or people that you want to talk to without yelling- the restaurant is always loud and hardly ambient.
Cute place but not the real thing – The food here is far too expensive to be so pseudo-Thai. There was nothing particularly wrong with the place, but also nothing to commend it. Thai restaurants in Atlanta are sprouting like lemongrass, so try some of the others.
Best Thai =] – this restaurant has an awesome aura that is just calm and soothing. food is amazing and the waiters are pretty humorous. i personally definitely recommend the masaman curry shrimp, and their dessert, tiramisu! theyre so good that i come here to eat at least once or twice every week!
Best Thai Ever~~ – I go there like everyweek. I always get good service and tasty food. The price is reasonable and the atmosphere is excellent.
Food is good but service is not. – When Top Spice first opened it was the thai place to go. Now the wait staff are apethetic towards the customer and act like they couldn't care if you came to eat at their resturant or not. So I won't.
Employee smoking in the restaurant – I was suprised that the restaurant posted a non-smoking sign but the employee himself smoking at in the restaurant. Bad place to be with polluted air
Great Every Time! – I dine at the place at least once a week and the food is always fantastic! I have never been able to find a restaurant that delivered great food until I discovered Top Spice!
Veg friendly, consistent. – Veg friendly! This place has never let me down. They offer a variety of dishes with an accompaning variety of flavors to please any palate. Service has always been great, even when walking in the door with over a dozen people - without warning. Decor is tasteful, soothing, and allows your food and conversation take center stage.
Good value – I'm not an expert on "real" Thai food but this place serves good food. The atmosphere is very nice and I've never had bad service. If you get your left overs to-go they even add some extra rice in there for you. The prices are a tad highter than some Thai places but the food, service, and atmosphere make up for it. I consider it a great overall value. I have been a number of times and will continue to visit as it's my gf's favorite place to eat.
Best Roti Canai – Top Spice has a wide selection of appetizers, soups, entrees and vege entrees with desserts. They have the best roti canai (puffed bread) served with chicken/potato curry dipping sauce. It comes out hot (watch your fingers!), fresh, flaky and crispy. The sauce is absolutely wonderful. The food always comes out fresh and hot on dishes big enough to share between two or three people. My husband and I normally can't finish two entrees. I don't think we've had a dish here we didn't like. The curries, beef rendang (soft and not chewy), whole fish with spicy sauce, mango and tofu, any tofu and vegetable dishes are just great, even comforting. This is also a romantic place to dine, nice decor with dim lighting. Save room for dessert! Ice cream, rice pudding or sweet Malay pancake.
