Our son recommended this restaurant knowing that we're visiting Palm Springs. We came for lunch. Chicken Pad Thai was great and a ginger based dish for my husband was delicious. For desert we had sticky rice with mango - it did not disappoint!

We've eaten at Thai Smile since it was a hole-in-the-wall on Palm Canyon. The "new" setting is well-appointed. Great food, service, etc.
