Nice decor Very popular in the tourist area. Reservations recommended. Limited patio seating. The food is tasty and well priced. They appear to want to turn over the tables quickly, so don’t expect to dawdle over your food.
Food was very average at best. Waiter was great, very professional. Martini prices were high ($14) for a casual restaurant.
A very good Thai restaurant! The mi krob was too dry.
Everything else was very good.
Great food and service
Second time within a week. Outstanding again!
The food was delicious and the service was very good! I would definitely recommend and return to the restaurant!
The beef salad had over cooked beef.
After several previous visits we were disappointed. Food lacked rich flavor which one expects in Thai restaurant. Only 3 shrimp with pineapple rice dish in spite of high price. Computer system went down with no backup plan in place to pay for meal with credit card. Service was good.
Amazing flavours, service and value. We will be back!
Great food great service. A little slow with the appetizers but otherwise great
It was quite pleasant.
Server did not bring our drinks. Was reminded once however; were never delivered. Ordered beverages with dinner however, did not show up yet, it was on our bill. Server corrected the bill. Overall service was above average. We'll still patronize due to the excellent quality of the dishes. Need to work on server attentiveness.
The food was amazing! I would definitely recommend it!
Good and delicious
Disappointing experience with service this time. We tried the happy hour, and the wings were pretty dry. Won't do that again. The service was slow.
Delicious as always. Mongolian Beef, Spicy Noodles with beef, the always excellent Thai Sampler, two hot and sour soups and the extraordinary coconut-chicken soup made for a very special lunch!
Excellent food and service!
Excellent food and service
3 People, 3 different entrees, all very good!
The Yellow Curry is Amazing
The food was good this night as it can vary greatly... has been inconsistent in the last year, seems good now. Waiter was good but fell apart when food was delivered, hadn’t picked up previous dishes, no plates, etc confusion! Otherwise pleasant experience.
No complaints about food OR service. What WAS annoying was how the wait staff hovered by our table to get us to pay and leave. It WAS busy that night but it made the 4 of us feel rushed.
Excellent food and service (by the waiter... the food runner pretty much ignored questions or requests). Again, we ordered the extraordinary chicken coconut milk soup - the hot pot which was more than enough for the five of us. The sampler appetizer was exceptional and more than enough to serve as an entree course. Everyone praised their entrees: Mongolian Beef, Yellow Curry, etc. and the premium brand cocktails were surprisingly inexpensive. This was our fifth visit in the last year.
LOVE Thai Smile, its food and its staff! We go often and will certainly return.
Diner like setting, attentive but sloppy wait staff, pedestrian food, served Luke warm. Disappointing all around.
It’s ok, not great and all of our food was bland!
A gentle atmosphere, friendly service and good food at reasonable prices.
Service was great! Food was outstanding!
One of our go to dining spots ! Quality food, great service and always consistent !
Very decent restaurant. We enjoyed our meal
Great food every time.
Delicious Thai food.
Always an enjoyable meal. Haven’t been here for dinner for quite a while.
Everyone enjoyed their meal with enough to take home for another time.
Great food and excellent service by Mario!!! After all these years, Thai Smile remains a very good and consistent place for dinner here in Palm Springs!
Friendly, efficient staff. Ambiance and decor was fine. Steamed dumplings were bland. Garlic chicken with added vegetables was good. Brown rice available. Prices seemed in line with other restaurants in PS. Nothing fancy but overall, pretty good.
Try it you will like it
I’d give 3 1/2 stars if I could. Food was pretty good, but not great. Service was quite fine. We ate outside, and there were many LOUD cars and trucks and motorcycles that went by...not the restaurant’s fault, but it diminished the overall experience. And, the band playing at the restaurant across the street was also pretty loud (they had a good guitarist, so if I hadn’t wanted to talk to my friend, it would have represented good entertainment (especially since it was free). I’d consider going back the next time I’m in PS, maybe try it for lunch, or eat inside.
It’s always a great experience at Thai Smile. Great food and outstanding service!
Best Thai food I have ever had without having to leave the country
Waiter Mario was great !
