Thai spice is the best! Spices are amazing... Chicken Panang is incredible...the coconut milk and lemongrass flavors really standout! Also try the calamari app...beware the dipping sauce is THAI HOT but worth it! We ordered the porterhouse too...the quality and presentation was impeccable. Highly recommended restaurant both dine in and for takeout!
Fort Lauderdale's Absolute Best Thai Food Experience
Goodness! Where to start? How about when you walk in, you're transported into another world...from the gorgeous aquariums to the beautiful Southeast Asian decor and subdued lighting, you won't find a more beautiful and romantic place in Fort Lauderdale.
Then, the food! Curries are killer, the fresh rolls sublime, the steaks magnificent, and the pad thai, well, perfect. Service is exemplary, and the staff is friendly.
Don't forget to go see Hootie the blowfish in the back aquarium...view more.
I've been coming to Thai Spice for years now, and I must say, it's always a great experience. The ambiance is nice enough to make it a very romantic, low-lit restaurant to enjoy with your significant other. It's a very small restaurant, but I understand they are planning on expanding it (good move.)
The prices are a little higher than most Thai restaurants. A good gauge is how much the pad thai is--here, it's $16.00. I think it's a little steep for pad thai, but you do get a large ...view moreportion, and the presentation is beautiful. I would highly recommend the skirt steak for $20. I ordered mine medium-rare, and I got a perfectly cooked, perfectly marinated very memorable steak. I gave my friend a piece, and he said ""ohhhh, now THAT'S good steak."" Also, their traditional Thai desserts are not to be missed. Try the roasted pineapple dessert with their homemade coconut ice cream drizzled with chocolate. WOW.
The one thing i wish would change is the very long list of specials that are recited for you before you start dining. It takes about 3 minutes to listen to, and to be quite honest, I can never understand the servers through their accents. Perhaps a shorter list of clearly stated specials may be in order.
Thai Spice is a great special occasion restaurant to take someone special. I can't wait to see the expansion of their restaurant.view less
Thai Spice is a great place for lunch in Fort Lauderdale. The atmosphere is relaxing with dim lighting and beautiful tanks of fish and fresh flowers. When you walk in the door, the aroma sparks the appetite! The menu is extensive and I've never been disappointed with anything that I've ordered. The steak and the curry dishes are expecially good. The wait staff is attentive and speak english. If you go for lunch, arrive early as they get crowded and the parking lot gets full.
