We went for dinner after the market. We have been a few times and the food is always spot on. There are many options for you to try. I love the yellow curry and my partner usually gets a fried rice option. The drinks are good. It can be fairly busy but worth the wait!

Quick Review: For years loved Thai Smile in its previous location. Since the move, I am sorry to say, there has been a steady decline in the quality of the food. What used to be dishes with distinctive flavors have now developed a similarity and lack of distinction. A real loss. Service is rushed, and the noise level in this... More

My friends and I went here for the first time together. My friend raved about it but we had never been. We were not disappointed. The food was fantastic and they kept a steady flow of hot jasmine tea coming! We shared everything. We got a veggie red curry, a beef spicy (super spicy) pad sei ew and a chicken... More

I've been here many times and the food is always good. Even in the heat of July the misted outdoor dining is a viable option - probably best for dinner in the summer heat.

Had dinner with friends on a busy Friday night. Was my first visit and loved it! Food was delicious and very enjoyable. Even though the place was packed, we got in relatively quick and received great service. I will definitely be back!

Famished after a long hike, I was happy to find a vegan option near my hotel. And Thai Smile delivered a great tasting vegetable and tofu dish. If I had any issue--as I wolfed it down!- it was probably that it was covered with a great sauce: sesame oil, soy sauce and sugar makes it tasty...if less than healthful. Oh... More

We Ate here on a recent trip to Palm Springs, we thought it was a good sign that the place was packed. We had about a 5 minute wait, and it was well worth it. The service was fast, the restaurant was clean. The springs rolls & chicken satay are not as good as we've had before but the Panang... More

We had lunch at the Thai Smile in downtown Palm Springs, which due to their popularity recently opened a second restaurant in the desert. We were greeted by friendly hosts and seated immediately. Our server was prompt, knowledgeable, and attentive. Our food was delicious and a good value. I would definitely return. I don't like my Thai food too spicy... More

We had a short wait as this is a very popular place and we did not have reservations. The service was very friendly and the food was great! We shared the Cashew Chicken and had the FBI desert (fried bananas with coconut ice cream).
