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

We ate here last night before seeing a show and certainly the speed of service made it a good choice in that situation. The chicken cashew stir fry was excellent as was the massaman beef. However a dining experience is not just about the food...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

I took my nephew and niece here on their visit to Sydney off the back of them having recently bought the Spice I Am cook book after their recent visit to Thailand. It's a tiny restaurant, and you can't book but the wait was short....More

Small restaurant serving authentic honest food. Good value offerings. We arrived late into Sydney and this restaurant was opposite where we stayed. Tired and hungry we were looking for a place to eat nearby. The staff were kind and helpful and did not disappoint. They...More

I eat a lot of Thai food and this didn’t disappoint. Beef Pad See Ew was brilliant, I actually went back and had it for a second time. Also I would recommend any dish with the pork belly. A must visit!

The food was beautiful and flavoursome with lovely fresh ingredients unfortunately a little too hot spice wise.

Yearning for that unique and spice-infused taste of Thai cuisine? Head down to Spice I Am at Wentworth. Satisfies every time we visit. Favourites nclude the incredible red duck curry served in coconut, tangy sourish Tom Yum Goong with fresh prawns and the winning Pad...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.
