I have given this restaurant a one star for the food that was served. Everything else would have been a zero. I asked for two gin and tonics upon being seated. When they arrived I’m sure they had forgotten the tonic! I sent them back...More

Friendly staff, nice place, worst chicken pad thai I’ve ever had. A month later I’m still crying over the disgusting pad thai, which I was craving desperately. Will never go back.

Excellent authentic thai food. Portions are sizeable, especially at lunch. Curry is delicious and tasty, as it the Phad Siew. Service is fast and pleasant.

I've eaten and taken out from this restaurant and really appreciate the spicing and the care with which the dishes are prepared. Better than many of the ersatz-Thai lining the streets of Manhattan, Spice delivers enjoyable and exciting food.

The food was tasty and well-spiced, and served pretty quickly. The bill for four dinners with a total of eight alcoholic beverages was only $122 without tip. We didn't order appetizers or cocktails - just beer and wine and an order of sticky rice on...More

Enjoyable meal. Good food. Great service. Very fast despite being 2:45 pm on a Sunday and all tables full. Worth a trip. Good value.

Not only is the place beautiful and in a great location, each dish was something out of the ordinary, extraordinary. Mix of cultures, cuisines, to perfection. Lobster rolls a must, but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu here.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
