We came to Pacific Grove to escape in December. In walking around we saw a Thai restaurant on Lighthouse Ave in Pacific Grove.

Tried the pad thai here and it was a bit sauce heavy. Tasted fine, but I had heard rave reviews and expected something more.

Very fresh veggies, I had drunken noodles with tofu, my sister had green curry with shrimp, and we shared a wonderful tom Yum soup. If you like Thai food, you can't miss if you eat here.
