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

The best because its the only Thai Restaurant in Carmel. As we arrived, there was a Staff (fat woman and wearing fake hair) no smile, no... More

Arrived just before closing but enjoyed pra ram tofu (nice presentation!) and yellow curry (a little spicy). Very reasonable prices.

The owner Lex is a very welcoming individual and gives the restaurant a special ambiance. We especially enjoyed the outdoor seating as we had our dog with us. The food is delicious and very ample portions.

We placed an order to go so we grabbed our order and headed to the beach to watch the sunset. (Inside is on the small side. They do have a couple tables outside on the sidewalk.) I ordered a red curry chicken, it had tons of veggies in it. I really enjoyed my entree. I'm so glad I also ordered... More

Delicious Thai cuisine in a lovely little spot. The service was wonderful, and the inside of the restaurant was delightful. I had the calamari as an appetizer, and it was delicious. It was very fresh and tender, and I loved the sauce it was served with. For the main course, I ordered one of the daily specials. It was a... More

They talked bad about one customer . (I'm Thai that's why I do understand what they were talking about and they talked loudly too)... More

It was busy when we arrived, so I was optimistic. This was misplaced. We got very average service - rushed to be at their speed not the customers. The food was generally bland, especially the hot and sour soup which was neither. The portion of meat in all main dishes was meagre. Don't bother coming here - try elsewhere, you'll... More

Pacific Thai our favorite restaurant. Everything on the menu is very good. We tried every dish on the menu. We typically go there 4 to 5 times a month. We're regulars. We recommend the yellow curry, pad Thai, fried rice, beef broccoli, and the cashew chicken. You won't be disappointed 😀
