Good Food with Big Portions and Vegan Friendly

This Thai Restaurant is vegan friendly. I had a delicious dish with vegetables, tofu and peanut sauce. At our table some people wanted very spicy food and others wanted no spice. Everyone was happy with their choices. The only downside was they wouldn't do separate checks and they had a... read more

Somewhat underseasoned for experienced Thai lovers, but "mild" level is ok for those not used to spicy food. Next time there, will order "medium". Prices have gone up since their move into newer, larger, and better decorated quarters. Even so, the value of the food has declined with the rise in prices. The Pad Thai was too tart, should be...

The menu has a vegetarian section, which was appreciated. However upon questioning the waitress we learned that several of the entrees in this section were prepared with fish sauce. Overall, we found the food we ordered to be below average.

We started with the salad rolls with peanut sauce and they were fresh tasting and delicious. We next had the Mamasan Curry with beef which was very tasty and full of beef and potatoes. We also had the Pad Thai which was full of flavor with chicken and shrimp. The quality of the food was much better than I've had... More

After a weekend of non-stop socializing and sight seeing we needed a couples-night to relax and have some great Thai food. This place didn't disappoint! Wish I'd known there was a Rancho Mirage location - we drove all the way to Palm Spring (no biggie). Wonderful service - delicious food and a wide variety. There's something for everyone - I...

The Thai curry was so thin and poor in its ingredients, It had nothing to do with good quality Thai food. I have lived in Thailand so I know quality. Also I felt overcharged.

Great local restaurant featuring Thai and a variation of Chinese food. We started with Veggie Dumplings which were lightly fried and came with a light brown sauce for dipping. The Cashew Shrimp had red peppers, carrots, onions and celery in a light brown sauce with 6 good size shrimp. The Tofu Pai Tai was fresh and the noodles nicely spiced,... More

It was difficult to get a reservation so we just took our chances and dropped in to the restaurant. We lucked out and had a delicious meal and very good service. We will definitely return to this restaurant. My mouth is drooling just thinking about the food!!!!

I'm a big fan of Thai food, and this is some of the best I have every had. I come here multiple times on each of my visits to Palm Springs, and it never disappoints. I especially love the outdoor seating, which is usually pretty empty. The food is fantastic. The soup they serve as an appetizer is so delicious;... More
