Good Thai food locally

Good and quick, served in a nice but small dining room. Flavors are authentic, but must ask if you want to up the spices.

Recommended by desk staff at Lovers Point inn, we found it to be above average. The Panang curry and yellow curry both very good. Pad Thai (shrimp) was excellent. We got take out, sent out with crummy paper plates and silverware but eating Takeout on porch at last minute stay in this quaint town...it fit. Large portions also.

Not the most authentic, but the best you will find around and is always hot and fresh. The seafood soup is good, and the basil chicken or beef also hit the spot.

Nice enough. Friendly enough. Slow enough. No surprises. No delight. Outdoor seating on the sidewalk.

This is the place for Thai food in Pacific Grove. Food is excellent and good value. Situated in the middle of town. Although it did have that Chinese restaurant feeling of get you in, feed you and get you out again for the next customers.

It seems there are numerous Thai restaurants but few are really worth return trips. Fortunately, that isn't the case with Pacific Thai Cuisine in Pacific Grove. The restaurant is located right downtown on Lighthouse Avenue next door to a great coffee house and down the street from the movie theaters. The curries are particularly good here with my favorite being... More

I went with my mom and step dad. Mom had never tried Thai, though I eat it frequently. She loved it! My curry was rich and very filling. Only problem is that it is so crowded, likely because there are few thai options, and this one is good.

A diner for real people serving really good food. We enjoyed Asian Wrap spring rolls and Crab Golden Bag fried wonton appetizers; then green chicken curry and Pad Thai entree.

No clue how this place got 4.2 stars!!! Save yourself, had the lunch special, seafood pad Thai....seriously regret the decision. Violent food poisoning, not a pleasant way to spend a holiday weekend with family. Came all the way from the Midwest and even read the reviews to be sure we would enjoy it. Convinced they paid for the good reviews.
