Whether it was during a busy dinner rush or a quiet afternoon, both times the service was great and you didn't have to wait a long time to receive your food. Everything there is delicious, especially the Tom Yum soup and the crispy

I tired to order delivery from this place and they were soooo rude when I tried to explain my address and how to get into my building and when I said ' I"'m just trying to make it easier for the delivery guy" all they could say is ' we don't care we just need your address they'll figure it out' soooo fi-n rude and typical. all i have to say is learn english and don't feel like you are mightier than thou; if you want to increase business you will never do it by being rude and not knowing english

I went here with two friends that were in town visiting and we loved it. The atmosphere is cool, the service was prompt and friendly, our waters were constantly being filled up, the food came out quickly and very hot and tasted great. The prices are very reasonable and the serving sizes were perfect. I recommend the crispy spring rolls, the pad thai with tofu, the coconut cheesecake and the chocolate cake with green tea ice cream. Everything was really good and I'll definitely go back there.

We ordered the Jade Seafood Dumplings, Golden Fritters and the Drunken Man Noodles. Nothing to really rave about. It was good but not great. I guess you can't complain if you are only paying 5 bucks for an appetizer.

I've eaten here probably 3 times in the past 3-4 months. food is amazing and price is very affordable and service is fast. Especially try the drunken man noodles with chicken or tofu... it's amazing! also they have a nice range of drinks.. atmosphere is great also with candlelit tables and dim lighting.. perfect for dining in a group of 4 or smaller. But the food is definately amazing in my opinion!!

I've ordered takeout from this restaurant several times. The delivery is sometimes a bit slow, but not terrybly so. The food is delicious and the prices are very reasonable. I am particualrly fond of the shrimp pad Thai and the geyser shrimp in a clay dish. The duck was also tasty. I have never sat down at the restaurant so I can't speak about the service, but as far as UES Thai takeout, this is an excellent choice.

do not call this restaurant for delivery! the food is not worth the money you pay for it. we were put on hold for 5 minutes before someone came on the phone to take our order. we got a soup and 2 entrees for $25. when we opened up our food, the container was not even half full. we have never seen a restaurant stingier than this one. it is definitely not worth the 5 minute wait on the phone, and definitely not worth our $25

I'm new in town and needed a quick, inexpensive, and convenient place to eat last night. I went there with a friend and had great food, good drinks, and quick service. No complaints here!

I am a total Spice fanatic, I frequent the location on University Place and just love the food and their great lunch specials. I went to Spice last night with 3 other friends and just had an awful experience. Although the food was still good, the service was so incredibly slow and rude I was ready to walk out. They seated us by the door which was freezing but we were ready to have some sangria and make the best of it. After waiting for 20 minutes for water, I ended up just going up to the bar and getting it myself. I highly suggest getting take-out from this location but DO NOT go there if you are looking for a relaxing fun dinner!

We went here after some recommendation. Food was amazing, gets into my top 5 thai restaurants. However, the service beats it. After seating, the waiter showed up to the table within couple of minutes to take the order. We asked couple of minutes and he showed up again. Yet, after ordering we had to ask for water!! Upon arrival of food, we asked for an extra small plate as we were trying few dishes. The plate never arrived neither did we receive any visit from the waiter till the check was to arrive. (No refills for water for their tasty and spicy food).

I guess I will bare it as the restaurant was very busy and in its peak dinner time. The food was amazing and cheap. Avoid peak hours if you look for good service and quick food. I will go again! and again!! Food and Price gets 9.5/10.. service 6/10

I dined here last night with a friend. We sat promptly and the food and service were excellent. The portions are filling for a complete meal($4 for dumplings, $3 for soup, $9 for shrimp/chicken black noodles). The decor and ambience was also enjoyable. Surprise joy on the UES.

The cons are the service in the restaurant is just awful, the delivery service is so slow it takes about an hour and a half, and the portions are tiny. The pros are the food is cheap and they have the best beef basil.

We accidentally called in an order from the other Spice restaurant and when we came to pick up our food here, we realized the mistake that we made. The manager here was very understandable and he quickly cancelled the order from the other place and re-ordered our food here. We got it in 15 minutes! Great service and yummy affordable food : )

I called after the food did not show an hour after I ordered it and they said it just left and would arrive in 10 minutes. It arrived thirty minutes later and I sent it back because I had already ordered from someplace else. It should not take 30 minutes to go two blocks! We tried to speak with the manager but were instead put on hold until we gave up. They might have good food but I do not even care to try based on the poor service.

I live 3 blocks from this place... was seated at 8:15, my food didn't show until 9:10! The table next to us was empty, then filled (by 8:30) and they received their drinks & food and were leaving when we got our entree! Then the Manager had the gall to argue with us about their crappy service. #1 rule of service-the customer is always right. Don't go there!

I've dined here quite a few times and I really like the atmosphere, plus dinner and drink prices are very affordable. I recommend sake bombs to drink and any curry dish.

With its initmate setting and modern decor, Spice is the perfect place to go for good conversation and a little ambiance, not mention great Thai food at an incredibly reasonable price. In fact, if you don't mind smelling like a bit of curry and peanut oil afterwards, Spice is an ideal place for a casual date. Try Spice for lunch. They offer great specials for not a lot of money. Two appetizers and two main courses cost me around $15.00 my last visit. With its flavorful dishes and laid-back atmosphere, Spice is hot and cool!

The food for takout was horrible. It was bland and and cold. I can't say much for the restaurant in terms of service and decor, but If the food isn't good, it really doesnt matter. definately not recommending.

Although it is not the BEST Thai food - it is very cheap and filling and also good for take out. When I was sick with a bad cold I ordered the Chicken Coconut Soup and they delivered it in a jiffy.

Lunch specials are from 5- 8 dolloars - almost unheard of on the posh Upper East Side.

Great food and very reasonable priced. The service could have been better, but we weren't in a hurry. There were several very large parties, so this may have contributed to the not so attentive staff.
Food was yummy - lots of veggie selections. Will be back soon.

I go to Spice on University Place all the time and also like the Spice on 2nd Ave. The food is good and the service is pleasant. Try the daily specials for something new or go for the classic pad thai.

The food is excellent and very very reasonable for Thai food prices, excellent take-out option. All their dishes and appetizers are good, some dishes can get realy spicey though! If you manage to make it in to eat, the place is small but very funky!

I frequently order from and eat at spice because it is underpriced, reliable thai food. I love their red shrimp curry, summer rolls, exotic salad and pad thai. Everyone I bring to Spice loves it and can't get over the prices. It is a great for a midweek dinner out or for home delivery, not so much for a special night out.

I live less than 2 blocks aways and I have eaten at this restaurant a few times and both times were fine- good food for the price and decent service. THEN, I ordered in and my opinion of this restaurant went way down! I ordered my dinner at 7:40 (they told me it would take 30 minutes) and by 8:45, it still hadn't turned up. When I called, they said that the food was already taken and they didn't know where the delivery man was. When he finally showed up at 9:05, I asked him what happened and he said "I was busy". Not only was the food late, but it was cold. This is unacceptable!!! Do not order in from this place!
