It was because of the high rating that we felt to try this Thai restaurant and was disappointed with the food. The lunch menu with the shrimp vegetables only came with 4 small shrimps. The Chicken combination plate with Pad Thai noodle was ok portion for me, but the taste and flavor were so-so. We were the first ones to... More

nice little thai restaurant within walking distance of our hotel. We shared an order of potstickers and thai shrimp spaghetti, which had a nice heat to it. Friendly staff and prompt service.

I can believe this place was empty. I know it was a Tuesday night but OMG. Really good Bangkok style Thai food. Super nice family run business. Pad Tai, fried noodle dish. Yummy. I had a soup with fish balls and ground chicken and a crab claw. Wow. Delicious....

Recently moved to the area and has been to some other thai in the neighborhood. Glad to find this restaurant. The inside is clean and nice. Fresh cooked food. If you love thai curry, you wont be disappointed, they are good. Met the owner Tony who is very nice guy. We'll definitely come again and try out their dinner menu.

So Asian fare is amazing in Garden Grove and Westminster. . .but Thai Tangerine takes the cake. All the usual dishes are extroardinary. At Thai Tangerine, start with dessert first--Mango with Sticky Rice here is the pefect appetizer, of course after you've had fresh Basil Spring Roles (or if you eat meat--Angel Wings). Don't miss the curry (any of them,... More

This restaurant is rated the best in GG for Thai. I am pleased to say that my coworker and I enjoyed it. It's in a little satrip mall close to the Hilton Garden Inn off Harbor Blvd. We started by splitting a wanton soup. It was huge. Fresh ingredients. I like the sprouts with the wanton, good blend. The wanton... More

We are from Hawaii and used to eating at a variety of Thai restaurants so we decided to try this one. It was OK. We loved the Basil Noodles. The Thai Iced coffee was delicious but we are used to the strong Vietnamese-style drip coffee. The Penang Curry dish was watery and a disappointment. No "sticky rice" so we opted... More

I came for dinner. After standing around for 5 minutes while every server walked by without acknowledging our presence I finally got someone's attention. The server said "sorry, we don't have the time or space for you now. Come back some other time." I'm not even kidding. There were tables available and others finishing up. As we stood in shock...

In Anaheim for a convention, wanted to get out of the Disneyland ghetto, so drove down the street looking for something more authentic, where the locals eat. Found this little restaurant, good reviews, thought would give it a try. Well, disappointing on several levels. First, they were out of the fresh rolls. Second, food took too long, over 30 min...

The food was very good and presentation was magnificent, with one exception. Their spring rolls are a joke. Its like theyre out of a box. Everything else was 110% I'm very puzzled at how the spring rolls were soooo bad?? If you want a real treat try the Sour Soup. I'd go here again in a heart beat. We had... More
