We went to Pacific Thai Cuisine for dinner. We had Red Coconut Curry Shrimp and Sticky Rib, both with sticky rice. The service was excellent, meal was delicious, and we were out of there in about 30 min. The red curry sauce in particular was phenomenal.

My wife had just returned from Thailand and I have visited there myself many times. Thus,we do have some knowledge of what authentic Thai food is like. We found the restaurant quite authentic and the food very well prepared. The atmosphere was very nice and cozy as well. Parking was easily available on the street. Service was also excellent. The...

The fog rolled in and we wanted something warm and ...... Thai. Found this place as we were driving around and had to wait for a table....always a good sign when visiting a new town. Drunken noodles and red curry. It hit the spot. Good food in a cozy environment. Also had the Thai Basil dish. It was so good... More

We were in town on a busy weekend, and looking for a reasonable meal without a long wait. Pacific Thai fit the bill, and then some. There was a very short wait when we stopped in on Saturday night, though the restaurant was packed. The service was fast and friendly, and we were very pleased with our meal. The drunken... More

Stopped by for a quick dinner with my wife. The service is fast and friendly but the food really did not excite us very much. The mood was set pretty low when we were seated right next to the restroom and the place was almost completely empty! The spicy Thai basil entrée was quite good. The portions are large as... More

Thai me up! This place is amazing. Cozy dining spaces and limited seating so reservations are recommended. The service is prompt and the food very delicious. The prices were fair, about $15/person for dinner, excludes any liquor. Limited street parking too so lunch might be a problem. We were there Saturday night for an early dinner around 6 PM and...

We walked over from Centrella Inn to this restaurant because we were hungry and like Thai food. This did not disappoint as everything was cooked fresh and reasonable. Would go back again.

Went there for quick lunch. Cute place with some Thai decor. We were looking for something more authentic(Thai Thai original flavor) the waitress is kind enough to let us know that this place may not what we looking for. She was so nice and accommodating so we end up order couple items. Papaya salad and fri rice, they were good.... More

My husband and I love Thai food and looked forward to trying this one. We ordered take out. One pad Thai seafood and one chicken vegetable. Granted, they were both non spiced dishes. Having said that, we felt that they were both fairly bland and lacked flavour. There was a couple of shrimp and not much else. Overall...average at best... More
