A welcome Thai meal after a long day but the food was a little dry, the service OK but they seemed to rush everyone out to the door. Food a little simple by international standards. Wine expensive but very nice.

It is one of those memorable restaurants. My husband and I came here for a late lunch after the 17 mile drive. We had Veg roll and rice with Red Curry. It was excellent! The restaurant was totally crowded yet the wait time after ordering was decent. Service staff were very friendly. I take this opportunity to thank the owner... More

Most of the reviews were quite positive so I did not expect a thoroughly average meal. I love Thai food, but this was just OK.The most expensive dish we ordered - a seafood with vegetables, was the biggest disappointment - little flavor and little seafood. The drunken noodle dish had a good flavor, but the noodles were overcooked. We were... More

We were shocked at the prices of this place. With most restaurants in the area being priced fairly high (given the tourists that usually come through PG), we were very happy to find most dishes under $10. The food was very good. Typical Thai, that you would expect these days on the west coast. Nothing stood out as exceptional, but... More

Pacific Thai in Pacific Grove was a lovely surprise. After traveling extensively in Thailand, one gets a bit picky about their Thai food. Pacific Thai did not disappoint. Huge portions (excellent value), friendly service and good variety. Food was beautifully presented and was served piping hot. Panang Curry, Drunken Noodles (Pad Kee Mao) and Larb Gai were all excellent. If... More

Stopped in and were able to be seated as it was early. Place was packed as it got later. We has great tilapia with curry sauce, noodles, papaya salad and fresh veggie rolls. All was delicious and fresh and served quickly. Servers were attentive and kind. Will definitely be back. All good and reasonably priced.

My husband and granddaughter had the Thai basil dinner. Hers was mild and he made his extra hot. Each were very happy with theirdinner. My grandson didn't think he liked Thai food. He loved the chicken satay and shrimp suit appetizers. I had the salmon which was wonderful. Food is not boring here. When ever we go to the area,... More

We happened upon this place while visiting the area and didn't know what to expect. Staff was warm, friendly and welcoming. We try and compare coconut soup all the time and theirs was very good plus its included in the lunch special. The drunken noodles are exceptional with lots of crunchy vegetables. Pad Thai was also excellent. Its small with... More

This place came highly recommended by our hotel. As soon as we walked in, we were engulfed by the warm atmosphere, delicious smells and the promise of Chang beer from the glowing sign (have it, it pairs perfectly with everything!) We had the Thai lettuce wraps, the pad thai, the green papaya salad, curry served in an artichoke and sticky... More
