Tripadvisor appears to be unaware that this has changed hands and is now ORANGE MANGO. Many noodle, sauce options, fresh seafood, and many beef, pork choices, too. Good service, nice decor-even if the other half of the building is pizza/bar food. Be aware it is...More

The food was very good. Prepared very well with fresh ingredients. Service was friendly and quick. Again, the food was VERY good! It looks like they are re-doing the Central Avenue location (and changing the name). Looking forward to trying the new place.

Great lunch. The steamed dumpling appetizer is the best I can remember having anywhere. Outstanding tofu noodle soup. Chicken Kai Soi and Pad See Eew were both great. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is above what I expect in Upstate NY....More

I have been to Blue Spice on 3 occasions for Birthday's or Mother's Day etc. I have never had a good experience. Table service is very slow and the wait staff seems unapologetic. The food is fairly good, but not the best Thai I have...More
