Really good Thai food, with excellent service, and nice atmosphere. The dishes we ordered seemed to be pretty authentic, well seasoned and good to the last bite.

We were only in Palm Springs for 3 days and two nights, but everyone we talked to said..."You need to go to Thai Smile" - it's awesome!" So out our last day, we went at 3pm and it was Happy Hour! The HH options are huge and the drinks are fabulous! The bathrooms were clean, the servers were very nice... More

Start with the "My Thai" and continue with the generously portioned, fair-priced lunch special, and end with the coconut ice cream. Any way you go, enjoy a great meal served by a friendly interactive staff in a clean and casual environment.

We were visiting Palm Springs and set out for a different Thai restaurant, which turned out to be closed. Lucky us because we ended up at Thai Smile. Great vegetarian options, terrific service and nice atmosphere. No complaints. We would definitely go back.

Cute spot right in the center of the action. They bring you iced tea as you sit down for lunch. We asked for the Thai Iced Tea which was just right. I had the chicken Pad Thai. Yum! My husband had a curry which didn't agree with him later.

Had a very good meal at lunch. This was the first time I have been to a Thai restaurant and enjoyed it very much. Our server was good, had great suggestions and was happy to bring extra hot sauces. Three different types. Lovely decor and I look forward to seeing it at night.

This place was wonderful. The food and wait staff were amazing! Right downtown, clean and great atmosphere! A wide menu assortment. I had the Pad Thai and it was some of the best ever. The lettuce wrap appetizer could have easily been a meal. Will definitely go back.

Very nice ambiance. Mario is awesome. Food portions very generous, taste is out of this world (try green curry chicken). Exceptional value. I'd like to live in PS just so I could work my way through the menu at Thai Smile.

We dropped in this evening (1st August) as we had just arrived in Palm Springs and didn't know where to eat. The portions were very generous and the meals were really delicious. I felt that the food was more Asian fusion than pure Thai. The extensive choice, helped out by clear photos of the dishes, made it difficult to choose,... More

So I have had some amazing Thai food and some really poor excuses for Thai food. This was somewhere in the upper middle. The meat was good cuts and the vegetables in the dishes fresh. Nothing was overly saucy. The portions were very large. Service was also good and despite how busy they were we go in fast.
