Very random place but very good food

You would not expect a hole in the wall in Frankfort, Ky to have such great food but it did. We went on a Friday night and it was totally packed. The service was actually really good. You do have to buy your soda by the bottle. We started with the appetizer combo that had; chicken satay (the... read more

I recommend this place whenever I can. The best place to eat in Frankfort in my opinion. Go for the three flavor chicken.

We love this restaurant. It's one of our go-to's for a night out. It has an awesome lunch menu--you can easily get in and out in an hour. Or you can go for dinner for a more laid back pace. The food is always great. The only small drawback is the spice level. It totally depends on who's in the... More

Dirty place, nasty food, rude staff. Called to place an order and person on the phone was incredibly rude and short, same treatment when I picked the order up. People in frankfort do not have a lot of dining options, that's apparent from all the local reviews. Chicken was disgusting and strange.

I went here after reading all the raving reviews ... I'm underwhelmed to say the least. Sweet and sour chicken is a cut up school system food service grade breaded chicken breast in a sauce with vegetables and pineapple. The breading comes right off and makes a mush in the sauce. This was simply breaded frozen breasts, not something that... More

Grat Thai food is hard to find in Kentucky, even in Louisville or Lexington. Who would have thought- Frankfort! Thai Smile is a family run traditional Thai restaurant located in a not so obvious area of Frankfort. Upon entering, I was greeted with a "Thai Smile". All of our party had something different... Pad Thai, 3 flavored chicken, and Pineapple... More

After living in Northern Virginia with ample selections of ethnic foods, Thai became our favorite. Thai Smile exceeds our best spot there. Every fish is presented beautifully. All with independent flavor, no mixing of sauces as some Oriental places seem to do. The range of spiciness will satisfy any palate, from mild to intense. The number of choices is outstanding....

This is a great restaurant! I have never had anything that I did not really like. Everything is very freshly made and you can choose how hot you want your food on a scale from1-5. I usually order 3. Bon Appetite

The selection is large, prices are reasonable and portions are HUGE! Family owned and operated. Food is always delicious and generally service is quick. If you frequent their establishment, the will quickly have your name and favorite order memorized.
