Great take out – I've ordered takeout from this restaurant several times. The delivery is sometimes a bit slow, but not terrybly so. The food is delicious and the prices are very reasonable. I am particualrly fond of the shrimp pad Thai and the geyser shrimp in a clay dish. The duck was also tasty. I have never sat down at the restaurant so I can't speak about the service, but as far as UES Thai takeout, this is an excellent choice.
cheap food, but not cheap enough – do not call this restaurant for delivery! the food is not worth the money you pay for it. we were put on hold for 5 minutes before someone came on the phone to take our order. we got a soup and 2 entrees for $25. when we opened up our food, the container was not even half full. we have never seen a restaurant stingier than this one. it is definitely not worth the 5 minute wait on the phone, and definitely not worth our $25
I'd Recommend It – I'm new in town and needed a quick, inexpensive, and convenient place to eat last night. I went there with a friend and had great food, good drinks, and quick service. No complaints here!
Worst Service...EVER!!! – I am a total Spice fanatic, I frequent the location on University Place and just love the food and their great lunch specials. I went to Spice last night with 3 other friends and just had an awful experience. Although the food was still good, the service was so incredibly slow and rude I was ready to walk out. They seated us by the door which was freezing but we were ready to have some sangria and make the best of it. After waiting for 20 minutes for water, I ended up just going up to the bar and getting it myself. I highly suggest getting take-out from this location but DO NOT go there if you are looking for a relaxing fun dinner!
Great food, excellent price.. bad service. – We went here after some recommendation. Food was amazing, gets into my top 5 thai restaurants. However, the service beats it. After seating, the waiter showed up to the table within couple of minutes to take the order. We asked couple of minutes and he showed up again. Yet, after ordering we had to ask for water!! Upon arrival of food, we asked for an extra small plate as we were trying few dishes. The plate never arrived neither did we receive any visit from the waiter till the check was to arrive. (No refills for water for their tasty and spicy food).
I guess I will bare it as the restaurant was very busy and in its peak dinner time. The food was amazing and cheap. Avoid peak hours if you look for good service and quick food. I will go again! and again!! Food and Price gets 9.5/10.. service 6/10
Delicious, Affordable, Thai... – I dined here last night with a friend. We sat promptly and the food and service were excellent. The portions are filling for a complete meal($4 for dumplings, $3 for soup, $9 for shrimp/chicken black noodles). The decor and ambience was also enjoyable. Surprise joy on the UES.
Terrible service but great beef basil – The cons are the service in the restaurant is just awful, the delivery service is so slow it takes about an hour and a half, and the portions are tiny. The pros are the food is cheap and they have the best beef basil.
Manager was Awesome! – We accidentally called in an order from the other Spice restaurant and when we came to pick up our food here, we realized the mistake that we made. The manager here was very understandable and he quickly cancelled the order from the other place and re-ordered our food here. We got it in 15 minutes! Great service and yummy affordable food : )
Never even tasted the food – I called after the food did not show an hour after I ordered it and they said it just left and would arrive in 10 minutes. It arrived thirty minutes later and I sent it back because I had already ordered from someplace else. It should not take 30 minutes to go two blocks! We tried to speak with the manager but were instead put on hold until we gave up. They might have good food but I do not even care to try based on the poor service.
Great food, great ambience, excellant price – The food was excellant, the price nice and overall a great place to spend an evening. The service was not the greatest but nothing to complain about.
