Thai Spice Restaurant Review: Part of the Little Thai Kitchen enterprise, Thai Spice upholds the reputation set by these Connecticut area eateries, testing the tolerance levels of curry and chili connoisseurs in Norwalk. A sleek dining space merging Asian elements (miniature Buddha statues set into walls, cherry wood and bamboo accents) and modern décor (straight leatherback chairs and stainless steel lamps overhead) provides a stylish backdrop for the comprehensive Thai menu. Starters include soups ranging from the soothing woon sen, a clear noodle soup with mushrooms, tofu and vegetables, to the signature sour and fiery tom yum, a soup with shrimp, mushrooms, lemon grass, lime and chilies. Entrées also feature both spicy and mild selections. For a balance of the two, pair the eggplant and asparagus sautéed in garlic-flavored brown sauce with chicken jungle curry, simmered with eggplant, green beans, bamboo shoots and basil.
