We love Thai food and this one will rank among the best. Unfortunately we do not live in the Chicago area to be able to frequent Thai Spice on a regular basis. The owner, Anthony, is Austrian and runs the dining room, greeting you, taking your order, etc. And, he loves to talk and will (as time permits) be at... More

This restaurant brings the spice hot and heavy (made to order) with a super friendly proprietor and a very chill atmosphere. The menu prices might look a bit high for family style Asian food but it is well worth it and partially offset by the BYOB policy. Food is served family style and the portions are generous. My own travels... More

Thai food is ubiquitous in Chicago. There are scads of places where you can a decent Pad Thai. This place IS DIFFERENT (and, by different, I mean way better). On the menu, the prices seem steeper than what I was used to at Thai restaurants. But, it was so worth it. The flavors were fresh and complex. It was clear... More

We enjoyed some of the highest quality Thai food ever. The host, Anthony, made the experience amazing with his attention to details and personal attention to our experience. We would certainly go back to Thai Spice again!

I cannot say enough great things about the welcoming charm and positive attitude of the host. Unfortunately the food here seems geared more toward the "huge portions = good value" mentality is more geared towards the benefit of college schools than a fine palate. And the dinner prices are expensive for the quality. It's nice that the food is organic... More

After having great Thai food in several cities around the US, i was really disappointed with finding something in Chicago that was truly great sushi. That was until my wife and I found Thai Spice. Using trip advisor looking for something nearby that was very good, we opted for something near Loyola and found this restaurant which has traditional Japanese... More

We had never had authentic Thai food and decided to try this Thai restaurant near Loyola in Chicago based on reviews over Mother's Day weekend. So glad we did. Nothing special from the outside, but nice decor inside. The waitress was extremely helpful in explaining the menu and answering our numerous questions. We had potstickers, Thai Pad with chicken, Thai... More

Great Thai food in walking distance from my home. With many Thai options in the area this is great that the closest one to me is the best. With the food and the atmosphere here I almost felt that I was back in Chaing Mai Thailand.

Anthony, owner and front man, is everything a restaurant host should be - friendly and knowledgable. His wife is in the kitchen, preparing the best Thai food I have ever eaten. Their meals' degree of heat is rated on Anthony's scale of one to ten; a new customer is not allowed to order higher than five on the first visit.... More

Anthony is wonderful, bottom line. You can tell he just genuinely wants to make you happy! His service is top notch. The food matches his charisma. My wife and I ordered out twice in the past week because we loved the Pad Thai so much! We split it and had still had a little left over. Even people with big... More
