We were whipped after hiking in the redwoods and wanted something different. We found Pacific Thai and ended our day happy. Good options for our vegetarian and I got my yellow curry craving knocked out with a great mix of chicken and veg. YUM.

Booked. Unnecessarily so. Two other groups one left pretty soon after we arrived. Food OK. Made the mistake of ordering spicy Green curry and spicy fried rice. Total misunderstanding. Food spiced up with chilli flakes. Totally uneatable. Not all their fault. Tom Yum soup probably OK but couldn't eat it because out mouths burning. Made a quick exit having eaten... More

Visited on a recommendation from friends and we were not disappointed. We did not have a reservation so we went a bit later than usual. We still had to wait about 15 minutes as the place was packed. Four of us ordered dishes and did not share. We were all happy with our choices and the reasonable prices.

We came here because we thought it was a Thai restaurant. While they have a few curries, it's not really a Thai place but a mix of different cuisines like a lot of places in Carmel. It was very good however.

Best drunken noodles ever. Great green curry. Would skip the soup; lacked substance.Will go back next vacation. Hang with the locals.

We recently stayed in Pacific Grove. The first night, we were too tired to cook so we figured we'd grab some thai food and picked this place because it was walking distance to our rental and we'd already had some wine. I'm so glad we did, because it had the best panang curry I've had in a really long time.... More

This small, unpretentious Thai restaurant on Pacific Grove's main street offers inexpensive, fresh, and tasty meals - and low cost luncheon specials.

The place is not large, but charming and lots of street parking. We didn't have reservations, but we were there off season, so check when it is busier. I had the red curry which was recommended by many on this site. It came in a large bowl full of chicken and veggies. The sauce was absolutely delicious, spicy and full... More

Lovely spot in the charming village of Pacific Grove. Easy to find on a corner of the main drag, Lighthouse Ave. Easy parking. Delectable food. The fragrance of lemongrass, coconut, and ginger made me swoon before I had a bite. Typical Thai menu but cooked with love and thoughtfully presented. The secret ingredients of Kaffir Lime leaves and Thai basil... More

I ordered with my eyes on this one and wound up taking a lot of it home. I had Pad Ti and my husband had Garb that he said was fantastic and I felt the same about my meal. The owner greeted us and the staff were great. ! Love the prices!
