I have been a semi-regular of Thai Smile since there started years ago. The past couple of visits have been slightly disappointing. On this evening I decided to return one more time to give it another try. Something has gone wrong in Thai Smile paradise and I can only hope that the owners wake up and get the restaurant back...

As written in the title. You may have to wait on occasion for a table but well worth the wait. Staff and food is always excellent! Have never had a bad experience here. Food quality and taste is consistent and a sure thing every time. Please keep it up!

I keep trying to like this place but everything on the menu taste like pure sugar; the ongoing threat of sugarizing America. The food and atmosphere are edible, but I just can't take out sweet everything else.

I have had great Thai food in Thai Town in LA, so I am quite spoiled. So My expectation is not particular high when I went to Thai Smile in Downtown Palm Springs. My friend describe that there's a lot of Chinese type dishes. Unlike most people, I don't judge a Thai restaurant by their papaya salad, because I am... More

A favorite of locals, Thai Smile is always full, even in summer. I was there recently for lunch. I only give it 3 stars because the food is just OK. For lunch specials, for example, the salad has peanut that's all about the sugar, not about the spice. The entrees mostly all revolved around peppers and something. I'm more of... More

This is a nice restaurant providing great Thai food. The staff is nice and very helpful. We loved the food. The only issue we had was that the food wasn't hot and spicy enough. Thai hot which is normally really hot felt like nothing to me compare to other restaurant I had the pleasure to eat. Nice location and you... More

My husband and I hadn't been here before and we ended up here because it was the only Thai restaurant in the area that was open at the moment. We received complimentary iced teas as soon as we sat down. Happy hour was great with $3.00 well drinks and beers!! I ordered the Yum-Nua (grilled beef salad) and a bowl... More
