Spicy Hut, (The)
Just minutes out of the downtown core, this Asian gem has gained a large and loyal following. The Spicy Hut serves a wide variety of interesting Chinese fare including seafood, soups and sizzling hotplates. A family-owned establishment, it has been a part of the local restaurant scene for quite some time. They specialize in Thai and Peking cuisine but offer many other dishes including traditional Chinese fare and seafood and vegetarian choices. You can order from the very spicy to the mildly aromatic. Parking is available just outside the restaurant.
I'm very disappointed in one of my favorite Thai food places. I ordered 3 items for pickup tonight, but when I returned home with my dinner Spicy Hut had given me Spring Rolls instead of the Pad Thai I had ordered (my favorite dish on the menu). I called back to the restaurant right away, fully expecting Spicy Hut to apologize and fix their mistake. The male who answered passed me along to his female manager. The manager told me that I could drive all the way back to the restaurant to pick up the Pad Thai I had ordered -- but I would have to pay the $7 difference as it was more expensive than the Spring Rolls they had given me. I was polite. I told the manager that I didn't feel I should pay any difference -- and I didn't want the Spring Rolls. The manager was indifferent. I think, actually, it would have been nice for Spicy Hut to send a driver down Memorial Drive to bring me the Pad Thai I had ordered. I'm really disappointed in Spicy Hut. Obviously, the most basic of restaurant ingredients -- customer service -- is something that they don't serve. I can find another favorite place.
We take delivery from Spicy Hut 2-3 times a month. Their food is consistantly amazing and they have fast delivery (20 mins) everyday but saturday (45 mins). They are always polite and ready to give suggestions on new menu items and special diets.
This place needs a thorough cleaning. The bathrooms are the filthiest we've ever seen in a restaurant. You don't want to think about what the kitchen is like. And there are lots of establishments in Calgary that serve better Asian cuisine. Go to one of them instead.
Spicy Hut doesn't offer a high-end atmosphere, but they do offer a consistent experience that delivers good value (whether you get deliver, eat-in, or take-out). Expect to spend $10-$15 / plate for supper, and to have a modest amount of left-overs.
You can't go wrong with any of the four daily specials (A through D).
As Spicy Hut regulars we dine both in and out of the restaurant! The ambiance isn't much, but the quality off food and service both make up for it.
A family run opperation that you can bring your family to.
