A lot of waiting for our server to come by the table. The food was less than a barrage.

Appetizers for awesome! Pad Thai not that great - not much flavor! Waiter seemed rushed - did not stop to check on us - service was terrible. I would try another time perhaps not a weekend to see if that was the reason.

Attentive service, great food, and chic decor. Noise level was off the charts, but that’s probably because we went on a Friday. There were two groups that were there after work since happy hour, so they were ridiculously loud. Without them- the noise level would have been moderate.

Cool space with good drinks. We were a very large party. The staff did a nice job of handling our party and separating the bill once they finally got around to addressing our table and actually taking our drink orders. Extensive menu and good food. Little loud, but again, we were a large party so could have been the size of our party and mr acoustics.

Threw a 12top at them at 6 for a 6:15 reservation, with 6 kids in tow. They threw us in the back - what we, and other guests, would have wanted. Pot stickers, curry, noodles, red snapper, all fantastic. They were great and more than reasonably priced. 4 different NY families all came away impressed with the food, ambience, service and patience.

We order from Spice 28 at the office frequently because we like the quality of the food. When I had a chance to visit with a friend, I jumped at the opportunity. I was not disappointed. Everything: good, service, and atmosphere were excellent.

We celebrated our daughter’s 16th birthday here. It was our very first time. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious & they even gave my daughter a free ice cream dessert that was yummy! My only complaint is that it is very noisy. We definitely want to come back.

Food was good, but the restaurant was woefully under-staffed. We received our food before we got our drinks. The hostess was also a waiter and was working the bar. Hopefully this was just an off night. I enjoyed the green curry dish.

The beef entree only covered about half the plate. It tasted fine but needed better presentation. The food temperature was warm. Not hot.

The food was excellent, but the music was a bit too loud and was a tad annoying. Service was good, except for my husbands appetizer being served along with his entree. Flavors of the food were outstanding. Cocktails were delish!

Great experience. Will visit again. Ordered the tropical mango- was delighted by the flavor balance. The serving of rice with the entree was too small but extra rice doesn’t cost too much so that’s nice.

Delicious food and ginger cosmopolitan. We got potstickers and Dan Dan noodles to start. Followed by pad Thai and an awesome beef and vegetable concoction. My sister doesn’t like heat while I do so they brought me heat to add. I have already recommended Spice 28 to two others.

We arrived early and the staff got us seated with no problem, and it was early and not filled. The atmosphere is modern and done very well. To the food, awesome. I am not a big Asian food person but my wife is. We bother had great dishes. Our appetizers were great. The pork dumplings in chili oil did not disappoint, the app was delicious. My cummin lamb was spicy, well done, and truly a great meal. The place filled up and the noise level rose but the place handles the noise and crowd. We really liked spice28. A revisit is in order.

My gf and I came here last year in 2017 on Valentines Day and sat next to the window in the front and had great food and great service.

Unfortunately, we were seated in the main room in very close quarters to other people and the service was just terrible. We had 4 different people wait our table and their was no consistency and we often waited a long time before getting refills, ordering dessert, and getting the check.

The staff seemed lost, confused, and their was no organization happening. I'll be back but probably only when it's not buy and maybe just to sit at the bar for happy hour.

I am going to try this place again when it’s not Valentine’s Day. We had some service trouble getting drinks and placing orders as the place was packed, however I am going to chalk that up to the day. I will be going back here to try on a more calm night and test out the service. Food was good but also seemed to suffer from busy night. Want to work through the menu.

We found Spice 28 while searching for Asian food in Philly. Decided to go during Happy Hour. What a deal! Great cocktails for $6.00 and 1/2 price appetizers. I totally enjoyed a "Philly Love: while my hubby had a "Dragon Nectar". Actually he had 4 and it was a good thing we were walking. Had delicious pork dumplings in chili oil, ahi tuna dumplings, lettuce wrapped chicken (most tasty we have ever had), dan dan noodles, peking duck crepe ( more of a roll than a crepe) and roasted duck salad. Would highly recommend this place when in central Philly.

The Pad Thai was bland.. The chicken was slick and bouncy and i initially thought it was undercooked but it just had a weird texture. Service was nonexistent. The waitress took my order, another gentleman brought my food to the table. Neither of them ever came back. I had to ask for my check. It wasn’t busy although I know they probably had a busy day following the super bowl parade. There were only a few other tables occupied. I left hungry. My cocktail was nice.

Went out for restaurant week but definitely messed up the bill and charged us $6 each for the first course meal that should have been included the $70 deal for the four course dinner like it says online and when checking the menu in person. People forgot my second course and thought they delivered it but forgot which I completely understand as it was crowded and in the end was solved with quick delivery after realizing their fault. Overall a nice place but outrageously priced for restaurant week serving little food and was not worth the price.

Went during restaurant week to try this restaurant, was our first time here. The food was presented beautifully, and tasted great. Very good menu, with the appetizers being the stars. Drinks were also very good, but overpriced for the size. The service was also very good, it was not crowded, but the staff was very attentive and polite to us.


We definitely would go back for another meal.

There was a huge selection, which everyone appreciated. However, as the night went on, our waitress disappeared. We had to ask someone else to bring us our check because we had already waited 20 minutes after finishing dessert. The food was also fairly pricey for what we ordered. We probably could've gotten similar food just up the road for a quarter of the price.

If you like crab rangoons, get the crab quesadilla. Sounds weird but it's crazy good.
