We’ve gotten take out and eaten in here. Both times were not disappointed. Pad Thai is really good so was the Pad Se-ew. Perfectly sauced and seasoned. We also liked the Tom ka ga. Plenty of lemongrass for those who like it. Eating in, it...comes in a fun warmer. There’s a bar while you wait for your take out. Plentiful easily accessible parking. Only complaint: why not put pad Thai on your lunch specials menu?! Highly recommend.More
I've been coming to this place for several years now and the service and food has always been consistently good. We stopped by for a late dinner on a Friday night and it wasn't crowded. I always order my favorite dish Pad Thai Chicken and...Spicy fried rice for the two of us. There was a heap of food that was brought to our table and my friend and I could hardly finish it especially that our mouths were on fire from the spiciness. The Thai Tea and ice water helped cool down our mouths - good times.More
Extensive menu with a lot of the usual Thai cuisine, with lots of consideration for vegetarian modifications. (But be explicit: some dishes like the papaya salad will come with dried shrimp unless you specify what you want and don’t want in every dish.) Service sizes...are very generous for the prices and service is fast.More
My brother and I were exploring Alhambra and decided it was time to for lunch. We drove around downtown and decided upon Thai Purple.
There was plenty of parking spaces; However most of the meter spaces were for 30-45 minute and we thought it was...too short a time for lunch.
We parked and walked to this restaurant from the back. It was a quiet place, all decorated with Thai statues, flowers and oriental pictures. There was a row of booths and then open tables and chairs. We opt for booth instead.
It was Tuesday and there was a lunch box special for about $8 with drinks. Anything else would be add on. For example, fried rice with egg would be two dollars more. We submitted our order. It came quickly like the Japanese Bento lunch box.
The fried fish and steak orders were just right. We were satisfied with the food and good service. The place open from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm, from Sunday to Thursday.
Thai Purple is located on 27 North Garfield Avenue, in downtown Alhambra, California (626) 300-9083.
If one is ever in this part of town, drop by Thai Purple. Cant go wrong and the price is right too!More
The food here is really good! We had the pad Thai and it was so delicious. The spring rolls were different, not to our liking. They had shrimp in them and were very large spring rolls.
Our biggest gripe of this restaurant where the televisions...that were all over the small dining room. They were loud and huge and the news was on, which was extremely devastating and sad. The restaurant would be quite quaint if it weren't for those TVs. We would go back, but we would not dine in.More
