Spice Thai Street Food Restaurant in Liverpool – Review
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…
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 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.
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).
Well-cooked, tasty, pretty authentic and enough to comfortably fill me.
The other 3 lads ordered an assortment of Penang Curry (made excruciatingly 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 of Spice Thai Restaurant Liverpool…
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 Street Food Restaurant is a really enjoyable experience from start to finish.
A real “hidden gem”.
PRO TIP: Spice Thai Street Food Restaurant is popular, so if you can, make a booking, particularly at the weekend.”
