Diner Reviews
  • "Took our family and had a great time. Food was fresh and loved eating tapas style. Very reasonably priced. Would definitely come back!"

  • "We had a very interesting experience at Thalia Spice. The food was just ok, definitely nothing we would die to have again. The waitress was fine, but she hadn't tried anything on the menu so she couldn't help us with our ordering. The apps took a really long time to come, so we just got our entrees to go. The ambiance was good, except that there were infomercials on the tv and the music was kind of techno clubby and too loud~ it didn't match the rest of the vibe of the restaurant. There was only a manager, who was also the bartender, one waitress, one runner, one sushi chef, and maybe one cook (as we couldn't see, but assume this since the food took forever)."

  • "West of Halsted and just off Chicago Ave where some of the city's biggest potholes lurk is a charming and fun little Thai, Japanese, Asian restaurant. A few minutes early for our reservation we were promptly seated in a private romantic little room next to the wine cellar. Our server was wonderful! Very patient, helpful and happy as we decided from the vast menu. Mussels in coconut milk broth, spicy grilled shrimp, Rising Sun and Full Moon Maki rolls - all spectacular and delicious. There were several large groups in the dining room, yet our service was never lacking. We will be back again to try a new sampling fro each of the pages."

  • "The service was friendly, but slow. A table of 5 ordered sushi rolls, and they were delivered one at a time. It probably took 20 minutes for us to get them all delivered! But there were delicious. And the desserts were lovely. A nice evening."

  • "This is my favorite sushi restaurant in the city! Their Thalia roll is the best. They are also very accommodating and its nice that they have Thai food and many different options for non-sushi people as well. They are also working on expanding their wine selections - a must try!"

  • "When asked to sit in a private room as opposed to a congested booth, the manager initially stated the room was only for private parties, then changed his response that the ceiling in that room was leaking due to the snow. Once the first 4 of our party of 7 arrived, it took 25 minutes to place and order and receive our drinks. The remaining 3 of our party was asked after 20 minutes of sitting down as to what drinks they would like. When the food order was placed, all the appetizers arrived but then were left on the table empty, while the dinner entrees were brought out. We moved our empty plates to another table on our own. It took one of us to stand and find our waitress to obtain our check, deliver our credit cards, and obtain our receipt."

  • "I encourage anyone/everyone to try this place out. The food and drinks are amazing, if you like home cooked meals at a reasonable price you need to check this place out you will not regret it."

  • "We wanted Thai Friday night, and something close to home. Found this place on open table, and really happy we did. Menu was awesome, something for everyone and some really unique dishes. You could tell everything was fresh and prepared well. Service was good, wait staff was quick to refill our drinks, but still gave us time to relax and enjoy our meal. The prices are terrific really great as well!"

  • "If you must plan to make a last minute plan and can't get reservations for a group of 10-12 on Friday, this is your place as it can accommodate big groups. However, service was just off and the food was hit or miss, some things were good, some were just OK and portions too small for the price. Would I go back? ummm... probably not, unless am going for small group or just myself to pick up few things that were good."

  • "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."

  • "We were the only ones at this restaurant the entire Sunday evening. How do they stay open? Although the manager that evening was nice, service was so pathetic ): Really disappointed as it was a Birthday celebration and I chose the place...."
