Wait this was supposed to be a 40 minute lunch tops and not 1 and a half hour for two people. Although the food is tasty and this is definitely not in an everyday lunch spot as any lunch over $10 per person is seriously frowned upon by me. I do not pack a brown bag with lunch therefore price... More

Food is Thai and sushi with dome reasonable lunch packages. Came in for late lunch and virtually had restaurant to myself except for take out pickup. For a location with nothing much around, it's a mini oasis. Attentive wait staff in the right measure. Waterway behind bar coupled with urban melodic background music makes for a stress shedding meal. Tom... More

The Siam Tini is probably one of the best and sweetest cocktails I've ever had, the only downside is that you can't stop at one, it's so good you want to keep them coming! I had the coconut shrimps which were very good (and the portion was generous) and the recommended Thalia roll which was tasty and filling. They also... More

We had eaten here before and the food was good but this latest time was a disaster. We waited over an hour for any food and then each dish came 30 minutes apart so none of us could eat together. The staff made excuses and the manager finally came over to apologize. The worst part was when my meal finally... More

Are you craving Asian cuisine? Your taste buds will have around the world choices at Thalia Spice. If you are looking to warm up on a cold Chicago day, the Tom Yum soup is a must. I opted for the Tom Yum with shrimp and it was fantastic - it had just the right amount of kick to satisfy. The... More

We were at the restaurant with a large family group. Everyone enjoyed their food. We only had one hiccup when the two youngest (4 and 6 year olds) who were sharing a plate were not served. We reminded the servers several times and got a standard response of 'it is coming right up'. Finally, someone checked and it had somehow... More

We recently dined here on a Saturday night. The restaurant never had more than a few occupied tables, which always makes me suspicious. The waitress did not know much about the menu, which was four pages long. We ordered the Thalia Dips, their signature dish, but they were out of it. On a Saturday night they were out of curry...

Thalia Spice has the tastiest tom yum soup in all of Chicago.It is a tantalizing blend of tomato-base and spices with lemon and secret ingredients that make your stomach want more and more!

We were celebrating my partner's birthday with a few friends. None of us had visited this restaurant previously, but the reviews were encouraging. Thanks to a reservation, we were seated promptly. After a noticeable delay, we ordered our drinks. My partner's a tetotaler, so we were perplexed by the delay for a gingerale. To his delight, the server arrived with... More

We went to Thalia Spice for a family birthday, 5 people ages 75 to 14, 2 vegetarians. We ordered 5 appetizers, 2 sushi roles and 2 entrees. All delicious, fresh and beautifully presented. The shrimp roles and the Pink Panther sushi role were my favorites. Also great, the Bangkok role and the Scallops. The staff was very attentive and friendly.... More
