I came in here for dinner for myself after a business day. They were about to close in 10 minutes and told me so. Only one other couple in the restaurant. I ordered a beer and Pad Thai with chicken. It was fine but felt rushed to get out before they closed. Nice interior. Food was just ok. The waitress... More

Consistently the most delicious, fresh foods; elegant presentation; very reasonable prices. We go to Pacific Grove about 6 times a year, and ALWAYS have dinner at the Pacific Thai Rest.

We enjoyed an average tasting dinner here. The inside of the building is beautiful with the exposed brick. The food was okay, the waitress not terribly friendly. The prices seemed right. Nothing special here.

We tried this cozy eatery last week during our brief stay in Pacific Grove. I was optimistic after reading the reviews, but the food just didn't measure up to our expectations. It took a long time for our food to come out and the spicy dish we were anticipating was anything but.

Just walked up, no reservations (it can be busy). More than happy to find a table vs make you wait. Food was good, service was fast.

I just spent a month in Thailand, so I may have gone to this place with too high expectations...I give it two stars because the service was OK and quick, and the food tasted good but it is most certainly not very authentic Thai food. We ordered the green curry, panang curry, red curry and papaya salad. All were OK,... More

Went for earlyish dinner and others had the same idea - waited a quick 10-15 minutes for a table. Kona on tap - not the best flavor. Spring roll and satay were very good. Teriyaki chicken, eggplant delight, pacific Thai salad - each made everyone happy. Recommended by owner of vacation rental - good choice.
