I don't know why there are negative reviews about this place. This is the best Spice location out of the three. I have gone for lunch and dinner and it was not full of NYU students. There were adults in there enjoying a good Thai meal. I love this place and this is the only Spice location that is consistent with the taste of their food. Yeah the decor is sort of "funky" which I think is cool and different for casual dining. I've been to other Thai restaurants with a more romantic atmosphere but the food was not up to par. Yes, sometimes you have to wait for a table but hey it's NY and this is a popular place, so don't make a fuss about waiting 10-15 mins. for a table, it will be worth it. I recommend the Calamari, Martini Shrimp, any of the fried dumplings, Ginger Chicken, Massaman Chicken and the Panang Chicken and fried Bananas. YUMMY! If you want to try this place go at lunchtime at first and then you will understand why most of the reviewers on here love this place.

The service was not good, but the food was great.

I totally recommend spice. It is the best thai place in the city. I work in midtown and I trek all the way down to 10th street on my lunch break by subway just to pick up an order of spice for take out. That is how good it is! be sure to try the shrimp fritters! It won't disappoint.

The food and ambiance are excellent. The wait staff is superb while the cuisine is reasonably priced and of the highest quality and asthetic appeal.

I used to live on 10th St. and I started going to Spice when it first opened. I remember the days when I was the only one in the restaurant at certain hours. Now you can hardly get a seat! I guess word got out how good the food is. I can't tell you how many people I've brought here, and they've all loved the food. Recommended: Emerald Vegetable Dumplings, Red/Green Curry Dishes, Basil Chicken.

The food is okay, certainly not amazing, but reasonable for the price. For dessert I'd recommend the chocolate souffle with green tea ice cream. The service is inconsistant at best. The atmosphere is lacking, if you enjoy feeling like you are in a loud crowded NYU cafeteria albeit one with a funky decor then you will like this. For those who prefer to be in a less juvenile environment this will be offputting.

I love this place - I have to visit every time I am in NY. And every time I have gone with NY'ers who haven't been, they have raved about it. My best night was when we started with beers in the bar, ordered wine, and sake, and food, and more wine..... Spice is a small restaurant, so on Fridays and Saturdays, and most other days it gets very crowded so don't go there for a quiet date. Food is good, great value for money, service can be a bit slow (but this may be due to it being so busy) however I have always found the staff to be responsive when asked for more food/drink/whatever - as long as you get their attention.
