On one hand --a strip mall restaurant with little/no ambiance from the ouside looking in. Once inside, simply done with a mix of tables and booths. Menus is not elaborate but gives a 'reasonable' selection from which to choose. Meals are prepared well, served promptly and appropriately tasty as well as reasonably priced.

Great for lunch or dinner. Ate there for lunch with my foodie preteen today. Lunch came with soup and fried spring roll. I had the drunken noodles and my son had a red lady sushi roll and a monkey junction roll. Food was awesome and service quick. I normally get the Thai noodle soup, which I also highly recommend. Small... More

I was so embarrassed after bringing a guest from Toronto to this restaurant. The sushi maker was backed up and the service was really slow. There was a sushi special which we didn't even know until we sat down but we were told sushi was at least a 30 minute wait. We were like OK no problem. Then the server... More

Always friendly service. Food is a reasonable price. They let you get it very spicy or not spicy at all. They have a vast menu with plenty for everyone. Definitely a five star

The sushi is awesome very tasty and fresh! I had the pineapple fried rice with chicken and it was delicious! The portions are good size enough to bring some home! The place is in a strip mall so I was a little leery but it's clean and staff very friendly. Will definately return!

I'll start with the food is excellent. I get the Pad Woon Sen everywhere I go and this is the best in town. The service is hit-or-miss especially when they get busy and the booths are the least comfortable restaurant seating I've ever experienced. So, don't go when it's busy, sit at a table instead of a booth, and enjoy... More

There are a number of Thai restaurants in the Wilmington area. Thai Spice has been consistently good. They have a relatively small menu, but what they offer is well prepared and you can get it as spicy as you dare. The coconut cake is something special....

Unexpected location (strip mall in a more suburban part of town) but definitely worth the short drive from downtown or the beach. Inside is very cozy. This is my favorite Thai restaurant in town! Literally every dish I have tried has been phenomenal -- and the beer and wine specials are good, too. Everyone I have introduced to Thai Spice... More

We went for sushi. We had a coupon and our options were conveyed in a very nice way by our waitress. Rolls and sashimi arrived fairly quickly. Sashimi portion was larger (more thick) than expected and tasted to be very fresh. Quite good. The rolls were good, but paled in comparison to the sashimi. I will probably try a noodle... More

Thai Spice is in my opinion the BEST place for Thai food in Wilmington. The service is always excellent. The restaurant is quiet and a nice place to just sit and talk while eating excellent food. I recommend the basil eggplant. Medium hot. It is perfect for lunch or dinner.
