The Spice Table
Deep Fried Soft Shell Crab-DeliciouDeep Fried Soft Shell Crab-Delicious! Deep fried goodness in a savory chili sauce. It was so good that we sopped up every bit of it with the toast that came with it. It was a little steep in price but so worth it.
Kaya Toast-Wow! Really a great balance of sweet and savory! The only other Kaya Toast we've had is at Street and although a little different, I feel the same way about it. I would order it here everytime!
Pork Ribs-These were spicy & tender. Very good.
Cauliflower-Deep fried something like tempura that you dipped in a spicy chili sauce. I really liked the chili sauce but thought the cauliflower was just O.K.
The service was excellent and we had a great meal.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food - vibrant atmosphereLoved the creative take on familiar ingredients. The duck rice is a must.

From having us taste the various beers so we could properly choose to hints of must try items on the menu. It was a wonderul meal and time.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMi haven't been surprised byi haven't been surprised by a new eatery in a while.dishes like the eggplant topped with a chile sauce that teased the tongue withou biting it off.lip smacking ribs that found me sucking my fingers after each bite.savory duck rice that i didn't want to share. the few misses were scallops overwhelmed with sauce and an indifferent marrowbone with ordinary cold pieces of white bread. service was wonderful if a little too eager to rush away plates as if to hurry along the customer.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't miss this place!I really like it here. Gets loud inside but the food and super friendly staff make it a really nice experience.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!Recommended by a friend who knows good food...so had to try it. We had an early dinner after a show at The Ahmanson. Looked like the restaurant was in a converted warehouse of some sort. Loved all of the exposed brick and beams. Two couples..we shared approx 7 plates. Loved the Sriacha potatoes! Wonderful variety of flavors and textures. I think we ordered a couple bottles of Malbec which paired nicely with everything. Highly recommend this spot for a lovely and lively dinner.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat little restaurant inGreat little restaurant in the cool, Little Tokyo part of downtown L.A. The dishes are meant for sharing and arrive at the table as they are prepared. Everything we ordered was flavorful and creative. The service was excellent. We will definitely be back to dine here again.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for per theatre dining.Great for per theatre dining. Lots of choices for sharing.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was very tasty,Everything was very tasty, but we were surprised at how much we loved the grilled Chinese broccoli... probably has something to do with that carmelized fish sauce. Yum! And the peanut sauce on the satays was awesome!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Eats, Best Vibe, Best DowntownI love The Spice Table! As soon as we walked in, I knew we had found a real gem. The lighting is dim and cozy, and the decor lends itself to an intimate romantic vibe. It's inviting. We met one of the owners as well, with whom we talked for a long time, as we discussed LA vs. NY, the origin of her restaurant, and how she thinks about food. They specialize in a fusion of Thai-Vietnamese, using authentic spices and sauces that far exceed the usual peanut-sauce glop. So tasty! I also like the way they serve wine. For about $13 you get a 16oz carafe, which is about two small glasses. A real bargain and good tasting wine, to boot. This place has it all! The entire experience was excellent. My new fave restaurant.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe know the Spice Table wellWe know the Spice Table well but had never come in for Pre-theater. It is a perfect spot! Less crowded, and you can eat well and still have a 15-minute margin to drive to Music Center and park.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMA very nice balance betweenA very nice balance between heat, fat and salt. Interesting combinations of spice. The creamed kale was a standout among the vegetable courses. Everything was superb.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMknocked my socks off. Theknocked my socks off. The real deal. Ambiance, service, food and safe/convenient parking. Had the bone marrow, Kaya toast, kale, flat chicken, and noodles, plus both dessert offerings. All falvors were unique and amazing. What a nice experience in every way.2/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLived up to the hype.Great food and service. We liked the ribs, the creamed kale salad and the Brussels sprouts. The rib eye steak was nicely seasoned. The special of cereal prawns was a little on the sweet side. Will definitely come back.1/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will returnFantastic experience
