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 the 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 with shrimp, mushrooms, lemon grass, lime and chilies. Entrées also feature both spicy and mild selections. For a balance of the two, try the roasted duck with vegetables and a touch of lime in a choo chee sauce, and the beef with bell peppers, onion and basil in a red chili paste. There are also a number of vegetarian options that lack neither flavor nor authenticity; combinations like tofu and mushroom and spicy eggplant are just as satisfying as everything else on the menu.
