Best Thai

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!

Friendly staff. We were told there would be a line waiting to get in, so we went closer to closing time, 8:00 pm, service was quick. Enjoyed the stir fry with cashews, tofu and chicken.

I've been to Daisy Mint many times, both for lunch and dinner. It is consistently good. Their curries are great, thai basil beef and spicy basil beef fried rice flavorful, and Pad See Ew what you would expect. Try the stir fry glass noodles with shrimp - yummy. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is noisy. Go early! There is... More

The only reason I didn't give this restaurant 5 stars, is because it's too small inside and the acoustics are awful....the place is always crowded, but because of the poor acoustics, you cannot hear or have a conversation with the people you're sitting at your table with. They also have a small outdoor patio, it's cute, but also fills up... More

We were in Pasadena and decided to give Daisy Mint a try because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor. I had the pad thai and my wife ordered the chicken with yellow curry. Both dishes were very tasty and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is what you'd expect for a neighborhood restaurant, not that great, but if it had a... More

Owners of Abbricot on Lake in Pasadena. Good Thai. Always crowded and seems a bit too much of all the hipsters who are moving into Pasadena from the westside. Stay on the west side ; ) Back to the food. Good, Go! Enjoy!

With reasonably priced lunch specials, this is a great place in Pasadena, especially near the Caltech area. I got the chicken satay which had a delectable marinade. My brother enjoyed his chicken phad thai.

Get there early. You will soon develop favorites like the pad see yew but don't be afraid to stretch the limits of all your taste buds because each one if them will be delighted you took them there, again and again!
