I went here with a friend because we were trying to find a place to get pasta and a bottle of wine. Well, we decided on Thai. While the prices for bottles of wine are reasonable, they're also the cheaper bottles. The food was pretty good. I like my food spicy, and figured the name they'd know what the heck I was talking about when I said "can you make it extra spicy?" Oh, and those shrimp fritters...holy cow those were good. The server did not check back with us to see how our meal was, but she did refill our water glasses one time. Did not ask if we wanted dessert, but did ask if we needed change. Servers should always say, "I'll be back with your change." That made me tip less. Oh, and the mens bathroom did not have a sink to wash your hands. It's actually outside the bathroom door, out in the open for everyone to see you. What an odd set up.

I ordered 1 lunch special for delivery. The food came in about 12 minutes and was very hot. The shrimp fritters were hot, crispy and came with a nice spicy dipping sauce. The Phad Thai was okay. It was low on veggies and peanuts, and did not come w/ a lime wedge. The egg and tofu in it were good, though. I would honestly rather them just give less noodles and make a better ratio of noodles to other ingredients. Overall, it's fine for what it's supposed to be. I'd order again.

I like spice for their excellent and healthy food... but poor service... Make sure to be very clear when you place an order other the phone, otherwise you will always have something missing or wrong.

The title may be a little dramatic, but i ordered the lunch special for delivery around 3pm. Waiting more than an hour for the food. When it got here, they gave me the entree and seperate appetizer, and tried to charge me 14 bucks. The delivery man called the restaurant and they tried to convince me that i only ordered about 20 minutes ago. Wasnt that bad, they did comp the appetizer, but i still had to pay extra. Then i opened the food, and it was all cold.

i dont know what the last reviewer is talking about but the food here is subpar compared to the other spots and they give a much less portion as well...overall not impressed.

unless you have an hour or two to kill. the front desk at this place is so disorganized. during one ordering time with me, they hung up on me, don't keep track of addresses and phone numbers, and when i tried to call back-after an hour and they still hadn't delivered my foodi couldn't get thru to a real person for 20 minutes (was kept on hold or got a busy signal for whole entire time). the food is good but the delivery service subpar.

very good thai at a great price. HUGE portions, and full size portions even during the lunch special. Great value
