As a vegetarian, Thai food is my favorite resource for fresh produce in a tastey presentation. This restaurant came highly recommended, so I was filled with positive anticipation. The vegetables in my dish were mushy and overcooked. When I asked the waiter if that was typical of all their dishes, I was told it was. I cannot know if that... More

Great, seemingly authentic Thai food in Pacific Grove. The restaurant is small and was crowded, so expect to wait, even on a weeknight. The restaurant has a decent wine and beer list. We enjoyed Asian Wraps, Tom Kha Kai, Thai Green Papaya Salad, Spicy Thai Basil Chicken and sticky rice.

We wanted to eat Thai for dinner and found this place in Pacific Grove. Took a chance to not make a reservation and paid the price by waiting 45 minutes. Looked chaotic at front desk with people trying to crowd and trick the manager and hostess to get in. Full marks to staff for maintaining discipline. We ordered salmon red... More

I only get the Pad Thai Shrimp Noodles. Alreadys good except inconsistent on the amount of shrimp in the dish, but overall I eat there often and recommend. 👍

Had a terrific meal of spicy basil tofu and red vegie curry. Nice family place Seemed that it was a local restaurant in a tourist area Saw lots of local takeouts which told me lots of people shared our enthusiasm for this restaurant

I popped into Pacific Thai not knowing what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. I had the Thai red curry tofu, which was flavorful and just the right amount of spice. The prices are reasonable (hard to find in this area!) and the staff friendly. I would definitely go back!

Best Thai food in Pacific Grove! That's not saying much as I only know of one other Thai restaurant in Pacific Grove, and it is a mile away from the old downtown area. We always come here for weekdays lunch when in the area, as they have $8.25 lunch specials 11am-230pm, too large for my wife to finish. This is... More

Clean, welcoming, and delicious. Be sure to include their cocoanut soup as an appetizer. It seemed odd to pay for rice with our meal, but everything was tasty enough that we decided they must have a valid reason. Be prepared to get there early, or wait with the locals. It is an area favorite.

I love Thai, but the tastes all seemed uniform and were drowned in sauce. Fun to sit outside on the sidewalk.
