Best salmon curry anywhere

Daisy Mint has an eclectic flair, with the unique decor and the fusion menu. My personal favorite is the salmon curry, which is the best (and maybe the only) in the Pasadena area. The Thai ice tea and coffee are rich and tasty, the pad see ew is very savory. Have never had a bad dish here. The... read more

Love places that offer fresh coconuts, since I don't drink soda. I'm slowly making my way through their entire menu, and so far I've enjoyed every single dish. Highly recommend.

We have been to a Daisy before and never been disappointed. I love their pad see ew. It is a really tiny place tho, you often see people waiting on the street. Not a good place for a larger group - just a caution. We think it is always worth the wait.

Daisy Mint has been our favorite Thai place in the Pasadena/Altadena area since they opened. The menu is not too grand, but there are more than enough choices for several trips back in a month. The curries are my favorites, they are just the right consistency, not watery, the spice is perfect, the portion sizes are good for two to... More

The food is really good. I had something with salmon which was delicious. It's a place to go for a quick lunch as it is not far from caltech.

The restaurant is a little small is the only drawback. Their Pad See Ew is to die for! If you love Thai this is the place for you.

We first went to Daisy Mint about 5 years ago, and despite moving 1,100 miles away since then, we still manage to make it back a couple times a year. It's the best Thai food I've ever had. I should qualify by saying that I’ve tasted a lot of Thai (or at least “Thai”) food. If you told my wife... More

Nice take on regular Thai food! My husband had Panang pumpkin, our friend had an eggplant in curry and I had a rice noodle Panang. Everything was delicious and totally different from the standard meat with sauce or Pad See Ew that often is the Thai fare.

This small location on E. Colorado Blvd. outdoes all the fancier, more expensive Thai places in town. Their carry out is fast and efficient, and the restaurant itself is small and friendly. It is very close to Book Alley, so you can eat and browse.

We were walking on Colorado blvd when we came across this little and cozy oriental restaurant. We went inside to try it and we loved the food, the decoration, and the service! Sure we will come back!
