A bit overpriced but the coconut soup was amazing. Happy to have paid a little more for such lovely cooking and quick service. Vegetarian options available if you ask.

We ate here twice on a three day trip to Sydney. Admittedly is was very close to our hotel but the quality is very good and the service friendly and efficient. Enjoyed the noodle dishes, deep fried spicy whiting and great lemongrass beef stir-fry.

$100 for 2 starters and 2 mains and no booze. As average Thai street food on a little wooden stool its okay but its no longer cheap and cheerful and amazing like it used to be. My advice, be brave - go west to Chinatown...More

This small restaurant opens up to the street with a large roller door, with tables spilling out onto the pavement. It is noisy: outside from the street and inside from the kitchen. The wait staff are of the fast-and-efficient sort rather than the sweet-and-gracious type....More

On the spur of the moment I decided to see if I could get a seat at Spice I Am for a quick, tasty meal on the way from a meeting. I scored a little stool and table and the food was terrific. The service...More

Fabulous food. Quick and lovely service. Very spicy but very delicious. Only takes cash but mains are mostly $15 so very reasonable.

Spice I Am do the BEST crispy pork belly! Any of the crispy pork belly dishes are fantastic but my personal favourite is the pad prik khing. I’m obsessed! All of the dishes I have tried are very tasty but it’s hard not to order...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

Yes it's BYO. There is a pub about 50m away too. Don't remember being charged for corkage.
