Tasty food, clean environment

We arrived to this location on Lighthouse after looking for other restaurants that happened to be closed that evening. We were already pretty hungry by then. It was pretty full for a Tues evening. We must have hit the dinner rush at about 6:30 pm. We were seating quickly. Although we waited... read more

One of the three best on the Monterey Peninsula. Definately the best in Monterey/Pacific Grove. This is a place to take your date, whereas the other two I like very much in Marina and Seaside are less expensive and have more pedestrian decor

Everyone in our group loved the food. Great presentation on all plates and great service. We dined at lunch on a Saturday. Good parking on the main street in P.G.

A good selection of delicious Thai food with a VERY accommodating staff and chef! Delicious, uncrowded and intimate downtown Pacific Grove setting. This versatile restaurant feels polished but not stuffy. The food is fresh and tasty and the wait staff is helpful.

This is a relatively inexpensive place that has decent Thai food. There is a good variety of dishes, service is quick and staff very friendly. We were seated quickly though we had no reservation. The Thai curries our friends ordered were great. The Thai basil fried rice that I ordered was good though I have had more flavorful versions elsewhere.... More

This is a local, neighborhood restaurant that is quite, inexpensive and offers excellent Thai cuisine. The ingredients are fresh and handled with care. The women who run this place really seem to know what they are doing. Pacific Thai Cuisine is a step above most restaurants of it's type.

Excellent Thai cuisine with generous portions (plan to share entrees ans appetizers), good service and good prices make for a great dining experience. Make a reservation even if is less than an hour in advance to avoid waiting.

I'm a frequent visitor to Pacific Thai and decided to branch out and try something new. I decided on the Bali salad. The greens very not very fresh and the chicken slightly underdone. We did, however have the Asian Wrap (spring rolls or as many call them, salad rolls), which were excellent as always. The peanut sauce is excellent, not... More

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.
