My second time at this spice thai on 81st & Amsterdam. My 1 st choice Land had 1 hour wait. So we decided to take a chance and walk across the street. My wife reminded me that the last time we ate at Spice the food was unappetizingI retorted its really difficult to make bad Thai twice. I was wrong. The 4 of us (w 2 friends from the west coast) ordered "cocktails"..i say this jokingly they should call them soft drinks.. mango margheritas, pommegranate margheritas and others w/ tropical names etc we all surprisingly said to waitress "we are missing the alchohol"? So my wife asked for a kettle one martini and the waitress responded we dont have shelf liquor all our liquor is a "light" version. We ordered apps shrimp dumplings, fried spring rolls, BBQ spare ribs appetizers all wasted barely eaten and for main courses we asked for the chicken dishes which are prominently displayed at the top of the menu Chicken Gai Yang type entrees and waitress said we have no more grilled or bbq chicken dishes only white meat chicken? unhappily we orders Thai staples Green Curry, Red Curry and Massaman Curry all were complete disasters!!

Great food. Nice atmosphere definitely worth the money.

The Thai Iced tea and the fried bananas were very milky-tasting, which isn't a common thing, but otherwise, the food was very good and decently priced. The actual place is very condensed, but they do well with the space they have. Good restaurant overall. Gratuity is included.

The food here is great and the delivery is fast, but the frazzled woman who answers the phone put us on hold three times during our order to answer other calls, and sure enough, got one of our three items totally wrong. When we called back after our food arrived she was immediately defensive, claiming she repeated back our order to us, and since she never repeated the correct item (which she did), it "is not (her) fault." She reluctantly sent the right order to us but said it would take a long time and we'd have to send the wrong food back. The right order was ultimately delicious but we did not appreciate the treatment for doing nothing wrong.

If you are looking for good, cheap, quick Thai food, this is a great place. The dining area isn't that amazing, but the food is good. They have good lunch specials. I had the vegetable dumplings (sauce was a little salty) and their Black Noodle dish (like unto Pad See-Ew) with chicken and extra vegetables. It was great.

Everything I've had here has been fabulous. The decor is lovely - except for the 2 tables next the the bathroom - and the service was great. Some of the best Thai food I've ever had and so reasonably priced! Glad it finally opened on the UWS!

We really like the food here and the price is great, but the woman who answers their phone often gets our orders wrong and always seems frazzled. Maybe they need more people to answer the phone or just someone better. Last time we ordered they went to the wrong address and they brought us cold food. The food itself is great though.
