Delicious food / unique atmosphere
Went with a group of 7 last evening, for my first visit to Thalia Spice. The menu offers great variety and everything we tried was well prepared and presented and quite delicous. I really like the ambience of this place, sort of modern/funky but with traditional touches in the decor. Will definitely return.

Great food, irratic service
We went for early Sunday dinner after a matinee. The food was outstanding. We had both sushi and thai. Several items were not available, the staff blamed it on a busy weekend. The service was irratic. There were only a few tables filled at this hour. I believe our official waiter was a teenage boy, who was clueless. We had to keep asking whoever came by, more than once, to take our order. As expected, the sushi and hot entrees were not served at the same time. However, one hot entree was served ten minutes before the other. We will try again becuase the food was outstanding. Maybe at a more popular hour.

We went to Thalia Cafe on
We went to Thalia Cafe on a Saturday night and the service was great. The food was very flavorful and cooked to our specifications (not too spicy, but with enough spice to give it some kick. The atmosphere was lovely and we enjoyed our dinner very much. We will definitely return.

Off the beaten path but worth the trek to eat at Thalia Spice. Service was very good, not pushy, and knowledgeable about the menu. Lunch specials seemed very reasonable but sushi rolls too delicious to pass up. Mojito was very yummy!

A good place to take friends
Thalia's food, within the Asian tradition with Thai emphasis, has character. The volcano soup is a great starter, spicy with abundant seafood. The green papaya salad is also interesting. My favorite is the Thalia's fish with tamarind sauce, either tilapia or salmon, with a sweet slightly caramelized crust, a Thai dish that I have not foudd in other Thai restaurants in Chicago. The variety in the menu (including sushi) gives plenty of choices for larger dining parties.
