Very Good Thai food near Disney

If you are looking for a family dining place with Asian Cuisine near Disney, this definitely gets my vote. It is a small Thai restaurant (looks like family owned) very close to all the hotels in the Garden Grove area. It is a 10-15 min walk from Residence Inn, Sheraton, Homewood Suites but will... read more

Went there with my family to have dinner. Portion sizes are not very big but enough for one person. Nice spicy and hot food. Reasonable service.

An Oasis in a sea of american burgers, steaks, and french fries. Not busy, very good staff, and excellent thai food. Every dish we ordered was excellent. Our family of 5 left the restaurant content, and in the knowledge that we would not have to run a marathon to burn off what we had consumed. We will be back.

T the Thai Tangerine restaurant tonight everything was perfect, if unlike most Thai restaurants in US. The unassuming strip mall exterior hid a spotless, very simple interior. Service with a smile was perfect. Prompt, efficient, courteous, accurate service. Someone at a nearby table found they did not like the standard recipe for a dish, and another one was on its...

Really please with our food and the service, also made a lovely change to the usual US food! Made to feel really welcome, food was 1st class. We had red and yellow Thai curry, rice, spring rolls, chicken satay and a Tiger Steak starter dish - will defiantly return.

I went here two nights ago with an old friend. He found it on Yelp. It was pretty late and on their website it shows they close at 9, but when we asked, they said 9:30. My friend ordered soup before we got there and it was REALLY good. I'm not sure which one it was, but it's the one... More

There are a few negative reviews of Thai Tangerine here, but my experience was pretty good. I came for a very early dinner (5pm) and was the only customer. I decided on Pad Thai with tofu and the size and quality were fine, although the lime slice was tiny. The service was typical for many Asian restaurants: you don't see... More

Ordered food via delivery. Half of food was not what was ordered, but nothing we could do as we weren't at restaurant. Food seemed to be like microwaveable entrees that could be bought at a store..... Noodles are Itchiban?!? Would not recommend or eat here again. After this actually considering eating Thai food again :(

What separates this from the norm is that it is a bit more authentic. Hot means hot (medium was plenty hot for us), and not sweetened as so many Americanized Thai restaurants are these days.

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
