Very decent Thai food, reasonably priced. The amount of food in our dinner plates was enough for two meals! My husband asked for "extra hot", and the chef definitely obliged.We returned for lunch menu, and all was very good again. We had no problem finding street parking on both occasions.

lunch is great here! Parking is horrible though. I'd suggest you go early or late for lunch. if you go at noon, parking is a problem. But it is really good food.

This place was PACKED at 6pm, we sat at the bar and ordered shrimp rolls, the chicken spring rolls, pad thai and banana/coconut dessert - all were fantastic and the bartender and wait staff were quick, friendly and professional. Would travel back just for the dinner we had here - the best of our stay!

I love my Thai and didn't know what to expect -- this place is nice and has quite good food. I had a clear broth-based chicken soup that was just outstanding -- I've eaten at a lot of Thai places and never had this before. Delicious. Other than that they serve the usual curries and stir-fries, but they are good.... More

Needing a quick bite before another film festival flic, we stopped in here and asked if they could accommodate our tight schedule. Cheerfully they accommodated us and we were not only served efficiently but the food was very good. The rice paper wrapped rolls were filled generously with lettuce, shrimp, glass noodles and fresh basil. The soup was tasty and... More

The wonderful drinks at Thai Smile remind me of those delicious rum concoctions once served in the coconut shells at the high-backed rattan-chaired Polynesian restaurants! My favorite is the "Tie Me Up"! Ummmmm! I had the lemon grass appetizer--excellent--and the Pad Thai--also excellent. The service was great, drinks great, and the four-star rating is only because their's no ambiance. I'll... More

When I want Thai or feel in the mood for curry, I head over to Thai Smile. I usually will call in my order (the usual is Chicken Pad Thai) and pick it up. They always seem very busy in the restaurant, which is usually a good sign the food is good. They are always so friendly and happy. Guess... More

Here's the good news --- the service was prompt, pleasant and helpful. The not so good news is that the two dishes my wife and I shared were no better than average. Too many better restaurants in Palm Springs to bother returning.

We usually have an early dinner when visiting Palm Springs, mainly because the busiest restaurants are quieter around 4:00 pm. We went to the Thai Smile because it appeared to be a very popular establishment and there were waiting lines on numerous occasions during our week there. The service was exceptional, probably because we were only one couple out of... More
