One can never go wrong by eating here. We love he convenient location and quick service. The food is consistently prepared well and served fast. I had the Green Curry mild, my friend had Mushoo Chicken. I loved my Green Curry, with coconut milk and fresh veggies. It is full of chicken , no skimping here. Bianca was our server,... More

Everything we have tasted at this restaurant has been fresh, delicious and served with very friendly attitudes. So happy they are moving from Rancho Mirage to Palm Desert.

Having enjoyed Thai food in other places (including Bangkok) we didn't expect to find a Thai restaurant we liked, in the desert. We were very pleasantly, surprised to find Thai Smile in Rancho Mirage! The ambiance is low-key and lovely. The food, while having an American twist, was fresh, delicious and moderately priced. The service was just right, neither negligent... More

Should you like Thai food, then we believe that Thai Smile is THE place to go to. It's hidden in a shopping center, but once inside, you'll love the service and the food and the atmosphere!

A well established Thai restaurant in the Coachella Desert. Moderately priced with fresh food that is tasty and enjoyable. During season reservations are a good idea. This is a very popular restaurant. Families are welcome.

Like Thai food? Thai Smile is the best we have found in the Desert and beyond. The food is well prepared and slightly adjusted to American tastes. Lunch or dinner here is like being back in Thailand. My wife and I cannot get enough of this wonderful restaurant. Put Thai Smile on the top of your restaurant list!

This place doesn't quite measure up to the Thai food found in East Hollywood. Nevertheless, Thai Smile delivered with tasty offerings, an inviting dining room and good service. We spent three hours enjoying food and conversation and were not rushed by the staff. Perhaps because the room wasn't full. Chicken was the meat of choice. It was in the cocoanut... More

Went early as we were hungry. Waiter took nearly 10 minutes to bring a coke and glass of wine in a near empty room. The pad Thai was luke warm but tasty. The sizzling combo is no longer brought to the table sizzling because the steam "bothered nearby tables". Really? Then change the name of the dish. At $18 I... More

Great food coupled with great service. Been at Thai Smile at least 15 to 20 times. If you choose Thai Smile, I believe you'll leave with a smile.
