I have eaten at Spice a few time on their E13th Street location. My first time there was pleasant: the food was great, the service was quick. But subsequent visits were less than steller. The last time I had ordered from there for a pick-up, they left out an item. I called back and they said that they would give me a "special" price the next time I ordered. I called back for a delivery the following week and noted my address and telephone number and the lady said that there was not such note or items left out previously for that particular telephone number. Like I was pilfering for a free meal. Not like the food was great anyways but never again will I shed a dime on this place. Bad service, food taste, quality, and quantity going down the tubes.

This restaurant is one of my favorite places to dine. Why? It garners straight 5 stars when it comes to the food quality (absolutely delicious; try the curry puffs!), the atmosphere (quiet, yet conversational ambiance with lively background music), the value ($10 per main dish; EXCELLENT value for such delicious and well-proportioned dishes), and the service (I was never without a full glass of water or a diligent waiter/waitress at my discretion). I never leave dissatisfied nor hungry.

I have gone to eat at SPICE very often before I moved to Maryland about 3 years ago. I love the place. The food awesome and service wasn't too far lower than what I expected. It is what I call the "modern Thai food"!

I've gone to Spice many, many times. Everything from the plates to the bathroom faucet is made to feel hip. The music is always too loud and the space always a little cramped, but the food is consistent and solid. I have no idea how "authentic" it is, but I can say that it's yummy and, best of all, far cheaper than many other sit-down options for Thai that I've been to. I take friends here all the time for the lunch specials. Calling them on the phone, though, is often very hard. They're always busy and rushed, so it can turn into a frustrating experience ordering out.

Consistently some of the worst Thai I've ever had, but it's fast and cheap and near my office. Lunch special is a good deal. But it does not taste like Thai food. The pad thai is no good.

My favorite food! Good pad thai and thai calamari

I have been going to Spice for years, I was a regular at the original on University. The other day i was at the 13th street location eating the lunch special with a friend, the woman next to me ordered the 3 flavor fish with the dipping sauce and vegetables, it looked amazing - huge fresh crispy fish pieces. Well i just ordered that 'amazing' looking meal from the 2nd Ave location for delivery. I am eating it right now and it is a disappointment. Instead of spicy fish fillets, I received, fish sticks (literally) with NO flavor, on top of over cooked cabbage and a dollop of sweet and sour sauce. They wouldn't even serve this at a homeless shelter - it is that bad. It is literally the worst 10 i may have ever spent. Why the different quality Spice?
