My friend and I went here on a Saturday night and the place was PACKED. It was also during a tropical storm so that could have led to the crowd. While waiting for a table (only 15 mins), we grabbed a drink at the bar and both drinks were great! Try the Lychee Mojito if they have it on the menu that day. The food was amazing! For an appetizer we had the thai crepes that were delicious! There werent that many but for $4 it was perfect. For dinner I had the Panang Curry and my friend had one of their specials with mussles. Both dishes were delicious and we couldnt stop commenting on how GREAT the food was. You definitely get a lot for you money and I still had some left over that I couldnt finish. The only complaint we had was when we tried to order dessert. Service was very good up until then. After we ordered dessert (only a bowl of ice cream!) it took a good 15 or 20 minutes to be served. No one would come around for us to even ask about the delay. Since it was at the meal though, it kind of put a damper on the whole night. I would definitely go here again. Definitely a young college crowd the night we went.

I've been to Spice to several times and recommend it to all of my friends. The food here is great tasting, well-presented, and of good portion size. The restaurant has a casual, youthful ambience. The exotic cocktails are well worth a try. It's a great place for a casual night out with the prices that won't make your wallet hurt.

Spice is my favorite thai restaurant in the city! While the restaurant itself is almost always crowded, its cute and the atmosphere is really lively The food is delicious and really flavorful and one of the best values in the city. I would recommend the black noodles and the spice salad. While lots of reviewers have said its popular because its cheap and in a college area, additionally, the food is just good! and is consistently so. definitely try it out.

I ate at or got take out from this restaurant at least 2 times a week when i was a student at NYU. the food is delicious and mostly consistent. if you are ordering out, order around 1-2pm because the food is most consistant after they make a few meals already. its a student fav because they give a free appetizer with your order for lunch. the atmosphere is often too crowded/suffocating because they're cramming too many tables into a tiny space. the waiters will come to you only once at the start of your meal to take orders. for anything else (like refilling your glass of water) you will have to flag them down. at lunch hours from 12:30-2pm you will have to wait 15 minutes or so. this is not a restaurant good for relaxing but the food is quality.

Spice, hands down, is my most favourite asain restaurant. The spices are incredibly tasty with just the right amount of everything. I have been going to spice for sometime now and yet to have had a bad experience in terms of the taste of the food. The only negative aspect I can think of is that they serve really small portions in beverages and rice. If you are a "healthy" eater like myself, it is always a good idea to order additional portions of rice. With that said, spice can be easily the best thai restaurant in New York City (haven't had thai food in any other city). Waiters and Waitresses I have encountered are very amiable and personable and that makes the atmosphere a whole lot better.

The delivery from spice is amazingly quick (don't run to the ATM after orderring, you'll miss them). The food is quite good, and the value is very high because their dishes are so inexpensive. The reviewer who commented that the phone service for take out orders is always too busy should realize that that's because there are a gazillion other people who are on to the value from Spice!

The decibel level was so loud, we had to lean in to the table and yell to hear each other. The sweet waitress had to lean over to hear our order. And we are talking 6 PM, midweek. The food seemed OK, nice portions and we tried two good sakes - but we didn't enjoy the experience. Won't be back. Too bad. One piece of carpet on that porthole wall would probably help.
