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

I consider myself a Thai food snob, so I was a little sceptical heading to a suburban Thai restaurant in Calfornia. But I'm so glad that we went. Every dish we ordered was outstanding, although the Tom Kha Gai may have been the highlight. All the ingredients were fresh. Its pretty casual, so perfect for our family with 2 boys.... More

This was a takeout experience since it was rather late at night. First of all, it didn't take long to get our order, which was nice. The restaurant was about 1/3 filled at this hour. We ordered Panang Chicken Curry and Pad Thai Chicken, our usual choices when dining Thai. So, we have a reference. Both dishes were very good... More

Despite the good reviews here, this place was the worst thai food we've had in years. Yellow curry was edible but thin and tasteless. Green curry was thin and filled with rotten looking basil. We didn't even try to finish the green curry it was so disgusting. Do not go here!

Thanks TA reviews. The food was as good as reviewed. The Tom Kha soup was good. The Green curry was very good and presented well with a side salad on a large plate. Fair prices for really good food. I'd definitely eat here again.
