Good food, Great space – I love this place. Whether for lunch or dinner, the food is consistantly well done and the staff is always friendly and accomodating. Definately try the Crispy Spring Rolls, the Coconut Tom Kha Soup, Maekong Aged Pork Chop and any of the Curry dishes! You won't be disappointed. But get there early. The place is small and intimate and the seats go fast! Groups of more than for are not recommended unless you call ahead of time. Otherwise, ENJOY!
Good Thai Food – Excellent food. Went their for friends birthday. Place was crowded with locals. The service should be improved. The food starting from the appetizer to the desert was served fast, even in a crowded place.
Delivery NEVER arrived – I ordered Spice with some coworkers and they accidently delivered a meat entree. As a vegetarian, I could not eat this item. I immediately phoned them to alert the mistake. There was no apology and they said it would take "20 minutes, maybe more." There was no priority for THEIR mistake. I had to call 4 times to inquire the whereabouts of my lunch. They kept saying that "it will be there shortly." The food never arrived and after 2.5 hours, I had to call a 5th time and cancel. I spoke with the manager who could only apologize and say that "it's difficult today." Mistakes happen, but don't expect this place to make it up to you. I will not order delivery from them again.
We have been banned..... – This is a good one.
I work 7 blocks from the restaurant on west 34th St.. 6 of us order from this place about 3 times a week for about 6 months.
Today, they decided to gouge us with a delivery fee.
We called to complain and they said there is no way to rectify the charge.
We then said we would like to cancel the order.
They said we are "banned!!!!!!"
We will find a new place and post it on another review.
Sad in Manhattan....
Great Thai food... – It was my first time eating at SPICE this evening. I will say one thing, the food (except one fluke) is really good. For an appetizer, my friend and I shared an order of the summer rolls. Although healthy, we felt that the rolls were very dry (even when soaked in the provided sauce). We won't be ordering that again nor recommend it. For my main course, I ordered the volcanic chicken. It was very delicious. I definitely will order this again. My friend ordered the chicken with cashew nuts. She seemed to enjoy that dish also. We didn't have time to order dessert but there's always a nest time. As per drinks, we had a Lychee mimosa and Pomegranate martini. Both were made well and very refreshing.
Spice up your night – I've only eaten here once but I was really impressed and am excited to go back. It is a little cramped and on a weekend night a little loud, but the food was excellent and the service was friendly. I had the Panang Curry and found it well sized, and well spiced for a mere $10.
Love it – Its a bit tiny in size, but the food is yummy. Ordering take-out of delivery works very well. I recommend the Pad Thai and the spring rolls. YUM!
Good Food-Give it a try – Good Value, Good Thai Food, great rice! Small restaurant so make reservations.
horrible delivery service – The delivery service is terrible. It took over an hour to deliver my food and I live 5 blocks away. Once it arrived it was cold. I have had problems with their delivery in the past as well.
