We had dinner here with friends. This is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant with great food and friendly service. The pad thai was perfect, big portions at a reasonable price.

We really wanted a fast meal and one that featured a good soup. You can't go wrong with Tom Yum and so we ended up at the Pacific Thai. Service was fast, courteous, and efficient, and this turned out to be exactly what we needed. We had the soup, chicken satay, fried calamari (strips), and some fried rice. It hit... More

This is a very nice little Thai restaurant in Pacific Grove. We went for the lunch special, which was very good with generous portions and a great price. Service was excellent.

Stopped here for a late lunch - they have a 9.95 lunch special. Red Curry was pretty good but the Pad Thai a bit disappointing (non peanuts in it?) Nice efficient service.

The food we had was delicious, very reasonably priced They have a lunch menu, but only a few items to pick from. Overall a nice place to eat downtown. The downside of it, waitress was not very friendly and we had to ask for water twice. She acted like we were bothering her. Good placec for Thai Food.

Place was full on a Friday evening but we waited for a table -- probably no more than about ten minutes. We were glad we did. I had the pad thai, which was just fine, and my husband had the mango salmon, which he said was great. Good service; will be back. By the way, the pad thai quantity would... More

This is a friendly family run restaurant in the heart of downtown Pacific Grove. It appears to built within an old home. Our meal was delicious and perfect for a chilly evening out. Portions are plentiful too. The two of us shared the coconut soup with chicken and also the yellow chicken curry with a nice jasmine white rice! Both... More

We expected much better based on the reviews. The Coconut Artichoke soup was OK, but the seafood in the Seafood Soup and Pad Tai Seafood was overcooked and I'm pretty sure that at least the mussels and scallops came out of a can.

Ordered Phad Thai which I think is usually a fairly safe bet but I found it to be very average. I've had much better Thai food many other places. The atmosphere is nice though and the prices were reasonable. Service was prompt. Just cannot recommend the food.
