Sothern Thai with quality, consistency and no adjustment for the local the palate. Whilst the founders of the Spice I Am empire are less engaged than a few years ago the Wentworth Av. Spice I Am delivers great Thai, flavorsome, with lots of care taken with ingredient selection. The Pad Prik King with Pork Belly is wonderful, as is their... More

This is the local thai restaurant and you can rely upon great service and food. I like the variety of starters, they have some more interesting choices than your average thai place

Fabulous drunken noodles to be had here - don't miss them! The flavors were complex and deep for both dishes we tried, and prices were certainly reasonable (especially for lunch). Make sure your travels take you here for lunch or dinner!

This is my 2nd visit to this restaurant and I have to say that the service and atmosphere do make a difference in our overall experience. I had a very pleasant first experience two years ago but I think things have changed a little since then. The positives: - still probably the better Thai food around Sydney - quick in... More

Excellent meal, excellent service. I was longing for some pork belly for some days already and my crispy pork belly dish more than kept me happy - fantastic flavours and great value for money. Would definitely return.

The food at this restaurant was excellent - extensive menu with lots of traditional favourites and lots of spice! The restaurant is very small with stools at the tables; service is very quick and people were queuing outside so be prepared to be in and out very quickly.

This is the best Thai food I've eaten in Sydney and outside Thailand. There is an extensive choice of mains, but not dessert (waitress said there are none). Also, if you are catching up with friends you haven't seen for ages, be prepared to be asked to pay when you finish eating as there is a queue waiting for a... More

Been coming here for years, many of those with new patrons. The food is good but the service was always rushed. However a few weeks ago, on a Sunday at lunch time we were treated very poorly by an arrogant waitress. She insisted on placing us on a very tight corner. The restraunt was still quiet. I started reasoning with... More
