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.

A first visit to Thai Smile in Rancho Mirage was vastly different from and better than the experience at the same-named place in Palm Springs. While the wait staff was a little clumsy, the service was friendly and the food was better than the other Thai Smile. It's my understanding the two places are not related. The menu at Thai... More

This is an overall review - not based upon a single visit - based on the several times I've dined at Thai Smile of Rancho Mirage. I recently read reviews about another Thai Smile (located in Palm Springs) - different owner. I've dined there as well. Rancho Mirage's Thai Smile is small, yes. And you must make reservations to be... More
