Got delivery. Tum yum soup was lackluster. Crispy shrimp puffs are okay, would probably have been better if ordered in-house. The food is decent. Not bad, not great.

I've tried many other thai places, and Spice has the best pad thai by far. Everything they make is delicious, especially for the price, the food comes out fast, and the service is great (they never let your water glass go empty). It's always way too crowded and you'll have to wait a good 20 minutes for a table on the weekend, but it's worth it. The only caveat is delivery. I've noticed that the food is consistently worse when I get it delivered. I had some really subpar tasting veggie dumplings I got delivered, and they're usually really good when I eat them there. So definitely make the trip if you're craving thai.

For $6.95 or $7.95 you get your choice of appetizer and main entree; the appetizers alone are worth paying the $8 for. HUGE fan of the crispy shrimp fritters and the dumplings areamazing!! I could go just to eat the appetizers alone. As for the Entree, I normally get Chicken Pad Thai; It's good for the lunch special, but not worth the inflated prices for dinner. Highly reccomended for Lunch!! It's the perfect amount of food! It's a tiny little space, so it fills up fast; I suggest calling ahead to check availability.

Now this Spice location has the best tasting food. The taste of the food is consistent so I always know my next meal will be good as my last. I like the fact that is has a "funky" decor and cool background music. I have been here several times and it's not full of college kids, I see a lot of adults dining here. Now you might have to wait for a table but who cares, the wait is never too long. I've had a lot of things here but the calamari is my favorite app. Everyone that I have taken here loved the food, never a complaint. So check it out for yourself. I have been to many Thai restaurants but none of them, even the $$$$ ones, does not taste like Spice on 10th!

Great thai food, if you like it spicy. The place is a little crowded and has a factory assembly line like setting. But the food is great and definitely worth trying. Lunch menu is also great value for money. We love the spicy bamboo + the vegetable dumplings.

Though this place is often teeming with spoiled rich kids who plague the surrounding area, you have to think that they're on to something. The food here is consistent, delicious, and definitely inexpensive. A great place to impress a hip date from out of town. The menu has a lot of variety and the portions are elegantly presented and pretty large. Their lunch special rocks my socks, and is an ideal bet when school is out of session and the crowd's thinned out. If you have the bright idea of going on a Friday or Saturday night, bring a sleeping bag and be prepared to wait a very long time for a table. Also, the hostesses and waitresses can be a little snotty for a place where entrees average only $10. But the food is pretty tight. I prefer the Drunk Man Noodles; they are a great alternative to Pad Thai if you want to avoid being cliche, but if you were really worried about that then you probably wouldn't want to come here.

This place is my all-time fave NY restaurant! Being a midwestern expat, I try my hardest to get around to all the restaurants w/o repeating any so I can try as many new places as I can, but my cravings for Spice are hard to contain! I've never had a bad meal here. The Honey Duck special is fantastic, ditto the Spider appetizer (also a special). Regular menu faves include curry puffs, puffy duck, veg dumplings among the apps, and spicy duck, massaman curry, tamarind whole fish for the mains. Haven't tried the shrimp fritters yet but as I've read so many people raving about them, I'll be sure to try! Also, the lychee pink lemonade and hot apple cider mixed with red wine are absolutely delish, with the latter being a can't-miss way to warm up a frigid NY night. This place is always busy, esp dinner on any given night but there IS a reason for that--the food and value are simply superb!
