Outside dining was noisy so we moved inside. Music was loud but overall good experience. Food was good quality.

Food was terrific and service was outstanding. They were out of the iced tea I ordered, but the server let me know there would be more in a few minutes, and sure enough...

This is my fourth or fifth visit, and always enjoy it.

Food was good and extremely affordable. App, main and a lemonade were $16. Polite and helpful staff. Try the mini wontons.

Made a reservation, but still had to wait. They originally tried to put us in a side table by the bar next to people in bar stools. Very loud atmosphere and the food was ok, but not worth the price.

Great food and service. Seemed like they were a little stretched on serving staff. There were only two servers on and it seemed a bit of a challenge getting the drinks etc. once we started off with food everything was good.
I love the food here for the unique spices and preparation styles.
Great visit.
When I am in philly I make sure I at least order once from them during my stay.

The food was delicious. Nic restaurant with a good casual ambiance. It wa n;t busy so I can't address the noise level. The Satay appetizer was tasty and tender. The Edmame was cooked perfectly. The chicken stir fry was proportioned right and the jasmine rice was a good complement.

We went to celebrate a birthday which I had notified them off, however our server didn’t acknowledge that at all. Our appetizers came out way before our drinks did, and the waiter was horrible. She did not come to ask once if we wanted more drinks, water or how the food was. She seemed more busy on her phone than service. She brought out entrees and started to hand out the plates with no room on table as they didn’t clean up after appetizer. When we asked if she can first clean up before dishes she gave us a look and took away two plates and continued serving the entree. Overall the food was average nothing special and wouldn’t want to go back again as the service was more than horrible. They charged us automatic 20 percent as it was a part of 7 but I would have left her with less than 10 percent for her service. Every time we needed something had to call her and she would pull her head out of her phone.

Would not return their for dinner again!

First time a Spice 28 was during restaurant week. Party arrived early for happy hour and I must say the Philly Love is the best drink on the menu! Place is small but worth the visit. I will go back again!

The first time In September had a great experience all around. However, this time the food wasn’t as good. Our party of 3 all got sick about a half hour after leaving. Had to cancel after dinner plans and go straight home. Very disappointed.

Enjoyed the selections for Restaurant Weeks! Great value, tasty food. Cocktails on point. Little noisy but hey it’s the City! Their Staff was most attentive. Would go back for a late dinner, it was way to crowded for 7pm seating.

While the servers were great, the floor manager, maybe the GM, she was very unwelcoming and continued to harass us to order even though the server had taken the order. She seemed to want to rush us even though there was no crowd or demand for tables. Even when she realized that we ordered, she acted as if we needed to do more. Not at all a place to enjoy when you have manager hanging around you and making guests feel like they are not welcome. Bad vibe. Never go there again. I did tip the waiter 25% because he was very pleasant.

Restaurant had only one bartender so we did not get our drinks until well after the meals were delivered. Our shrimp appetizer was not delivered before the meals so we had to eliminate that. We had multiple servers one of whom offered a discount. The next one asked what we wanted for a discount then said we should write our concerns on the ticket and they would give us one later. Then they added a 15% tip to the ticket. Skip this place. It's too loud as well.
