It was late at night and we all wanted a quick bite to eat. We decided to go into Wonder Spice and get a few favorites. We started with Thai Iced Tea, added some chicken Satay, and then followed up with Pad Thai. Everything was...More

Wonder Spice is a good place for a tasty Thai meal. We usually share dishes to get a little taste of everything. There is always plenty to eat.

Their vegetable spring rolls keep us coming in; fresh, crunchy, and healthy. And we can't get enough of the peanut sauce that accompanies it. But balance of the meals we've ordered, nothing to brag about. All have been served warm with generous portions. Taste is...More

Had a good, tasty, comforting Thai dinner after a difficult weekend. Particularly liked the appetizers. Spiciness was adjusted for each diner's preference. Convenient parking nearby.

Wonder Spice Cafe, located in the pleasant Jamaica Plain neighborhood. offers mainly Thai dishes as well as a few Cambodian ones. The quality of the food is excellent, the service is friendly, the surroundings are pleasant. Highly recommended.

Overcooked entrees! Chicken and shrimp in my Pad Thai was so dry I needed a glass of water to wash it down. Same thing for my family's entrees. So disappointing!

We visit Jamaica Plain every July for about a week and Wonder Spice is an annual tradition. I have yet to find a restaurant where I live that serves Mango Curry. We love the tofu or shrimp. And definitely over brown rice. Yum!!!!!!

This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other
areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an
emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to
