I`m a committed “foodie” and particularly like Thai food.
Here is my full, detailed review of a favourite Thai restaurant in Liverpool city-centre – Spice Thai……

“This was my 2nd visit to Spice Thai and I`m delighted to report that the quality of the food & the enjoyable dining experience has been maintained.

HOW TO FIND IT…

A little tricky to find – it`s at the bottom end of Fleet Street as you head from the bustling Concert Square area towards Hanover Street.
There is a discrete and slightly scruffy doorway (though recently brightened up and tidied), where you climb the stairs and enter into an informal square-ish space that is Spice Thai restaurant.
Benches and casual dining is the order of the day here and it works well.

The venue has had a slight makeover since my last visit – sadly losing the “Tuk Tuk” table for 4 which I dining in previously.

ONCE INSIDE…

The open-plan kitchen is a nice touch.
Service was friendly, helpful and efficient throughout.
The menu is well designed giving sufficient descriptions of each dish – most of your regular Thai favourites are included and are very well priced for a city-centre venue.

WHO WAS WITH ME…

We visited at 5pm on a Saturday evening. The restaurant wasn`t too busy, but I had booked a table for four,
as I was joined by my friends Paul (whose 49th birthday celebration it was) Dave and Dave.
They know their stuff, as one is married to a Thai lady and the other two have long-standing Thai partners.
We all visit Thailand regularly and when there, immerse ourselves in the local cuisine.

WHAT WE ORDERED…

Two of the lads had starters – Chicken Satay (£4.25) and Spring Rolls (£3.95) which both got the thumbs up.

For main course, I chose Pad See Eiw Beef (at £9.50).
Wide, flat rice noodles with stir fried beef, onions, broccoli, carrots etc. With a sprinkling of chilli flakes it tasted mighty fine and was a good portion size.
I also ordered Gai Yang (£8.50) – fried chicken chunks with a delicious savoury dip.
And a couple of Singha Beers (£3.50 each).

Very enjoyable.
Well-cooked, tasty, pretty authentic and enough to comfortably fill me.

The other 3 lads ordered an assortment of Penang Curry (made excruiciatingly hot as per Dave`s special request), Pad Ga Prao & Kao Ped.
So they tried an assortment of duck, prawn & chicken dishes and all were polished-off in style and rated very good.

AND THE VERDICT…

In summary the food is competitively priced, attractively presented and extremely tasty.
The total bill for 4 people was just under £84, which included 2 starters, 5 mains, additional fried eggs, 5 beers and 2 spirits & mixers.
So a very reasonable £21 each.

A visit to Spice Thai is a really enjoyable experience from start to finish.
A real “hidden gem”
