I don't know why all these people have negative things to say about Spice. I'm a student at NYU and I go to Spice at least twice a week. Not only do I go for the $6 lunch special but at night for a cheap dinner with my friends. Sometimes, at night, when the it is busy, the waiters and busboys are a bit slow but thats understandable. During the day, there are never any problems. I have had almost everything on the menu and would recommend the shrimp fritters, the duck salad or the calamari salad. For the main course, order pad thai shrimp (make sure to say w/o chicken, as the chicken they put in pad thai is sometimes dry), volcanic chicken, massaman curry chicken or the ginger and pineapple chicken. Make sure to order dessert. The choc cake with green tea ice cream is to die for and their apple dessert is delicious as well.

Reasonably priced very good food. Lunch specials are great. Main course and appetizer for $7. Delivery is fast.

We've been to this place and had awesome food delivered several times - in fact for a short time we thought this place was our favorite. The food is very good, if you can get what you order. The last few times we have got delivery, we have not gotten what we ordered, and they are not at all accomodating at fixing their mistakes. Even though the food is okay, the price and poor service are not worth the effort, after all this is new york city. Spice will have to step up their performance if they expect to continue to do good, if any, business in this town.

I don't get why people love this place. The food is very average, the service is perhaps average and the seating is poor. I don't enjoy being that close to strangers, especially when I'm eating.

I used to go to spice all the time and have recently gone back to find that the service was very poor. The waiter never came to take our order, only after repeatedly flagging down the busboy did our waiter manage to fit us in. The food has become dry and tasteless. In the budding popularity they forgot to concentrate on the most important aspect of a restaurant, the food. Overall the entire quality of spice has gone downhill.

I love thai food. And I am usually pretty easy going with what I get. But the food here is consistently boring and tasteless. It is pricey and really not worth it. The location has made me want to try it again because it is so convenient for me, but the food disappoints me time and again.

I go to Spice all the time, it's a great place! The tamarind duck is to die for. The only thing I would complain about is that they are a little cramped, especially when it's really busy, you either have to wait a really long time, or they sit you dangerously close to other people. But overall its the bestest thai food in new york.
