I love this restaurant. The staff and Chefs know how to please their customers. If you want bang for your buck and a yummy meal, this is the place.

Very spacious and tastefully done place. Made it just in time for the lunch specials. The service was fast but a bit mechanical. The server brought us iced teas as soon as we sat down, but we sent it back and asked for water instead. Then we ordered the lunch special which included the iced tea, he came back with... More

Visited Thai Smile after not having visited for a few years. The service was ok, but the quality of the food very poor. We got an Appetiser sampler & the food tasted & appeared as if it had just been reheated Microwaved food. Nothing seemed to be freshly prepared. Drinks were expensive .

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys fine food. As I sat at my table I detected a foul odor possibly emanating from whatever was coating the table surface and causing it to be sticky. I ordered pad thai (you would think it would be readily available given the name of the place) and waited while the... More

I'm not very picky and always like Thai food. This was unusual in that the food was absolutely flavorless and bland. Soup was OK but Sizzling Combo was not eatable. Sorry, but you should keep looking for a better place to eat.

This is apparently a local chain. The food was very good and not at all cookie cutter. Service was prompt and friendly.

This is the best Thai restaurant in the area; comparing it to Le Basil and Thai Legacy. The restaurant is small, extremely popular with locals (reservations required) and the food is very good. We had a great meal the other night (a rare walk in and got seated) went back and couldn't get a seat so by default we ended... More

Don't you hate it when you're the one guy who "doesn't get it" when it comes to restaurants? For this place, I'm that guy. It's not bad but I found it very average (at best) for Thai food. Our server was great, but he recommended two very similar appetizers in place of my entree. Both were fried chicken, and totally... More

This Smile moved from north Palm Canyon to the corner of Tahquitz and Indian Canyon. Larger new space, new menu, and great lunch!

Visiting Palm Springs for a week and we decided to try Thai Smile. We certainly left with smiles on our faces. Service was excellent. Within seconds of being sat we had large waters at the table with out having to ask or wait for our server. Every restaurant should do this. They have a large menu, you will need a... More
