Spiced - Indian Inspired Thai and Chinese Food

As I mentioned earlier this week, there are a few new Thai restaurants in the Ditmars area - one of them being Green Curry and the other is Spiced. They're right across the street from each other and therefore hard to miss. Spiced caught my eye especially because I haven't yet seen a restaurant that serves Indian inspired Thai and Chinese cuisine. I thought this was interesting so I grabbed their menu and liked what I saw. As is customary with Asian cuisine, prices are super competitive, and they're even offering 20% off of your dinner. Worth checking out, in my opinion. Here's a sampling of the menu:

Chicken Lollipop - Crispy pulled back winglets shaped like lollipops, served with spicy dipping sauce...$5.95

Rocket Shrimp - Jumbo shrimp, batter fried & served with chili garlic sauce...$6.95

  1. Can we split the lamb and the whole snapper in chili sauce? I'd get a duck salad, spicy, if they have it... yum. Thai and indian food -- two of my favorites. Got to try.

  2. Oh yeah, sounds really good :)

  3. Green Curry is so much better. This place just couldn't stand up to all the other options in the area! also, there were some suspicious sanitary conditions...Do you really want to know the details? enough said.

  4. i was checking out spiced reviews on the net and every where i see shannon writing the same review.. hmm... thats kinda fishy.. dont YOU think so shannon? it isnt really mature to trash someones business with lies if you have personal issues against them.
