We went to Thai Smile by accident on Nov. 3, 2014 while in PS for a conference. Staff were very friendly and the service was spot on. The menu is very diverse and goes well beyond Thai. Location is central, close to the major hotels supporting the conference centre. The soup was awesome and the other dishes were good. Definitely... More

Thai Smile is really good! HUGE space, but the service was nice, food was tasty, and all in all, really good Thai food. Can't miss on anything here. We preferred the smaller Thai Smile (around the corner - see other review), but, Thai Smile is really good...

As a Vegetarian, Thai is usually a great option but the menu was very limited, with most offerings fried. Everything seemed to result in an up charge so brown rice or noodles with steamed veggies cost extra and the veggies were fresh, cooked Al dente but not a wide variety. The chicken lettuce wraps were minced and doused in sauce... More

I visited Thai Smile shortly after they opened for lunch with a friend. I was expecting the same quality of food that I previously enjoyed at the Palm Desert location but was disappointed. The wait staff was not attentive, hot food was cold for both of us and was sent back. The appetizer was overpriced for the quality. I will... More

Got to the restaurant and it was pretty busy with a bunch of bigger groups (gay pride weekend). We had to seat out in the patio on a very busy street by a stop light. Noisy, polluted and generally not a great atmosphere to eat. Ordered the Vegetable egg rolls. They were mushy and very tasteless. Then ordered the pineapple... More

Nothing too exotic here, a taste of Thai that won't offend the unadventurous. Skip the appetizers. There are better choices in downtown PA, for sure, but you don't get cheated.

Great service and delicious food! Large menu selection. The Panang Curry was the best I've ever had. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Thai Smile recently moved to a new location but the menu followed and that’s a good thing. This place offers a nicely varied menu with all your fav’s and it’s consistently good. It’s a place where you’ll find locals and tourists alike. I really like to go for lunch as they have a nice menu that’s fast.

Great food, good location, nice people. All at a good price. One of the best Thai restaurants in the Coachella valley.
