Our experience at Thai Spice was definitely a miss! I went to dinner on Valentines Day and after 10-15 minutes, the mesh roof on the parklet started to drip lots of water on us. When we asked the staff for a towel or further instruction they simply brought us a few napkins and did not say anything. After the dripping continued and our clothes started to get soaked, we asked them to take our meal togo. They expressed no sympathy and seemed overwhelmed with the take out orders and waiting on other tables that were completely dry. They did not offer any sort of discount for free drinks or discounted meal. I understand the wait staff was in over their head, but a simple act of sympathy or gesture would have been very well received. Would not recommend this restaurant to friends based on my experience here.

We met at the bar, but because of the music we sat at a table that was much quieter.

Great food overall —we ordered a wide variety for 4 people and enjoyed all dishes from vegetables, cashew chicken, duck and of course pad Thai. Very good value in a city where eating out is expensive. Service was slow with only one server on a Thursday night but we weren’t in a rush.
So happy to have discovered this gem
In a cool neighbourhood.

This is one of my favorite easy Thai places. The food is reliable. There's usually no wait. The service isn't superb, but pretty solid. Overall, it's a great and unpretentious neighborhood gem.

Amazing food! We loved that all the ingredients tasted very fresh. You have to wait a few minutes for each plate that pretty much lets you know they are actually preparing the food. We all raved about the flavors too! Will definitely be back!

We are locals to the neighborhood and this is our "go-to" spot for Thai food. The service is always pleasant and the food is consistent. Whether it's curries, Pad Thai or some spring rolls, highly recommend Thai Spice -- either for dining in or take away.
