    Have been coming to this place for years as it was a local favorite, however after today will not return due to the utterly rude waiter who chased me down b/c my tip was $2 short of what he expected!

    Except for the male bartender, every member of the waitstaff and management treated my party poorly. Our reservation was given away 10 minutes before our scheduled time. Seriously, avoid this place.

    The location is pretty small & has 2 levels. The food is good but the service is terrible. You can't have a conversation without the wait staff checking on your progress every second.

    The cocktails are strong and the Lemongrass Chicken Breast never fails. Somewhat tacky interior and the crowd is heavy. If you don't have a reservation, it's better to try the East Village location.

    Fast service. Food is good, but if something's labeled spicy and your restaurant is called Spice, it should probably at least be a tiny bit spicy.

    Portions were good. I ordered the Bacon Fried Rice... Got way more bacon than I expected. My friend got the Shrimp fried rice loaded with shrimp as well. They don't skimp on the meals.
