Cary >Thai Spices & Sushi Restaurant
Good to order, better to dine-in. We've been eating from Thai Spices for about two years now, we've been there twice and always had great service and food. I'm not an authority on Thai food, but I enjoy it, and I enjoy eating here. When we eat in, we usually get sushi and it is prepared right when we order it. When we order delivery, we usually get a combination of Thai and Sushi, and while its good and convenient (we've ordered delivery about a dozen times), its much better at the restaurant (I think its because of the Styrofoam and the time it takes, neither their fault). Also, we live just across the Cary/Apex line in Apex, still within three miles of the restaurant, and they still deliver to us. I recommend it for a good Thai and/or Sushi meal
More authentic Thai and Sushi at these locations....
I gave this restaurant two tries and unfortunately I must say that the food is lacking in authentic Thai flavor, with watery sauces, and poorer quality than some other restaurants.
If you want good Thai, go to Thaiphoon Bistro in Raleigh or Lotus Leaf in Cary. For over the top great Sushi, head to Yuri in Cary.
Service is good but the food is not.
My favorite restaurant. The food and environment is great.. This restaurant is great. The environment is very inviting and the food is always great. The employees are friendly and are always helpful. I go to this restaurant at least a couple times a week depending on my schedule. I highly recommend it.
Best Thai food around.. good food, good atmosphere, good price.
We love Thai food. I didn't realize this restaurant has been around for 2 years. Just took a chance for lunch and didn't regret it...and found an excellent Thai place just round the corner in the bargain.
I had red curry. Having tasted red curry in some of the finest Thai restaurants in downtown San Jose, CA, I am fairly particular about it and was most pleasantly surprised. The waiter insisted that I can handle "hot, spicy" and he was right. The veggies were nice and crisp, the aroma of herbs straight from a Thai home.
We are vegetarians. The person serving us spent time with us with a suggestion here and a veto there (where there was meat involved). There are plenty of selections for vegetarians.
If you are Thai food lover, you must try it. If you are not, this might just be enough to make you one.
My only regret was I had to get back to work ..which meant I couldn't sample the "Chang" beer...
Good food and excellent service!. My boyfriend and I tried this place for his birthday yesterday and were pleasantly surprised. We had miso soup to start with - nothing special there. I had two sushi rolls which were LARGE and fresh. He had the mixed assorted seafood and it was excellent - very tasty! Also, even though we arrived at about 8:20 pm, our server was very attentive and nice - we did not feel rushed as some small places make you feel when you are on of the last two tables to leave. We will definitely go again!
JUST OK. We were skeptical from the moment we walked in because there was nobody in the restaurant on a Tuesday night @ 6:30pm. We had a coupon from the Citipass book for 1 free entree so we decided to stay. The service was very good and the waitress was friendly. We were not overly impressed with the food. My husband had a chicken/veggie/pineapple dish which had almost no chicken in it. I had a specialty sushi roll which was average (compared to other sushi places in the area). When we went to pay w/ the coupon they said it wasn't valid on sushi. Nowhere in the Citipass book was this indicated and I showed them the book. They still would not accept the coupon. Having worked in the food industry before, I find that totally unacceptable and will not return nor recommend this restaurant to friends.
This restaurant is outstanding.. This is the Thai restaurant I have been waiting for since I moved here from Boston 7 years ago. The restaurant is intimate, great ambiance and decor, romantic with little lit candles along the wall, and the food is fantastic! It's very fresh, very flavorful, and made with care. I had the wonton soup, which is out of this world (again, very fresh ingredients, fresh cilantro on top, chicken and shrimp mixed with the wontons in a fragrant, flavorful broth) and the Pad Thai. I'm so picky about Pad Thai and they make theirs perfectly, not greasy or mushy. I ordered extra lime juice on the side because I love the tanginess of it. My husband had a green curry and it was VERY hot, very fresh, and amazingly good. I'm just so relieved to finally have a Thai restaurant that knows what they're doing around here!
I was really disappointed in the sushi quality here. I usually go to Sushi Thai on Kilmayne but I decided to try something new and this place got good reviews. I can't speak for the Thai food because I didn't have any. The best part of my meal was the peanut dressing house salad.
As far as the rolls, the sushi rice was not good - kind of gelled together like the lower quality ones you get at the grocery store. The unagi (eel) roll had a weird taste - like half of the fillings was eel skin instead of meat.
Bottom line: Don't count on good sushi when going here. I wanted to treat myself to a yummy lunch after a hard week at work but ended up being disappointed in my choice.
Best thai food in the Triangle. Thai spice and sushi is one of the best restaurants that serves Thai food in the triangle. Excellent service, delicious food! This place offers great options for vegetarians. The ambience is peaceful with the sound of a water fountain in the background and they were playing Jazz music which made it a perfect Friday night dinner outing. The House red curry with vegetables was excellent. Definitely one of the better Thai food that I have ever eaten in this area. Overall, a great dining experience!!
