First time we have been here during happy hour. Enjoyed the small plates with cocktails, and then split an entree between the two of us. Everything was great, as usual! One of our favorite restaurants in Palm Springs.

Always excellent! Part of a regular routine is dinner at Thai Smile after cocktails. It is a short walk from it favorite hangouts. Food is always excellent, as is the staff! The restaurant itself is well kept, even the restrooms.

The best Thai cuisine in Palm Springs without a doubt. The Spicy Peanut Chicken and Tom Kha Gai soup are our favorites.

Overall I usually love Thai Smile, their Yum Nua (Thai beef salad) is the best I've ever had.

However, this occasion, the red curry was extremely disappointing and lacked all flavor. Service was just ok.. No refills were offered, and no one checked on food.

I'll always be back for the Thai beef salad.. But there are now better Thai restaurants in PS to enjoy!

I love Thai Smile. Their food is always excellent. Can’t go wrong no matter what you order. Tasty and for the most part healthy too. Lots of veggies in most of the dishes. I loved their Shrimp fried rice. Also one of the dishes with ginger and almonds. Can’t remember the name right now. The soups are pretty tasty too. Enjoy!

We eat often at Thai Smile and the food is really good. The staff are always attentive but on our last visit our waitress was fantastic - very helpful and checking that everything was OK. We all had a great visit.

Our family had a quick stop over in Palm Springs after exploring Joshua Tree. We were excited to find a restaurant that had great reviews and made a reservation straight away. The food was absolutely divine, the right level of spice and the staff were incredibly friendly and efficient. Would definitely come back again!!
