President Thai is definitely the best Thai restaurant in town! We've been eating here for a few years and their food quality is consistently excellent. We usually order too much from their huge menu but we take the rest home to enjoy later. Today, we ordered the won ton soup w/BBQ pork, grilled garlic prawns, chicken pad see ew, seafood... More

I've visited Pasadena around 15 times over the past twelve months for work. I found this restaurant with a colleague last year, and we've been back five times since. It is simply the very best Thai food I have had anywhere. Everything is amazing, the service is attentive, and the atmosphere is wonderful. The staff remembers us and our preferences.... More

This is a very busy restaurant, so at dinner time expect a wait. They have some excellent Thai offerings. There's something for everybody.

I have loved every dining experience at this retsaurant ... and I have been going there for years and years. The President's Beef is off-the-charts delicious, the satay sticks perfectly grilled accompanied by their delicious peanut sauce, and the ALL the spicy sauces are so good you could drink them with a straw! The service is friendly and the setting... More

My cousin and I decided that we were going to get take-out from this restaurant. It's so beautiful both inside and out! Though we didn't sit in, it looked so inviting. The staff was super friendly! I was craving red curry and their's didn't disappoint. It was so good! Definitely will be returning to dine in!

We went to President Thai Restaurant with three other people, and it was good fortune that they had made a reservation for 6:30. Who would have thought that the place would be packed with a line out the door on a Wednesday evening? But it was! Everything we had was so good -- Tom Yum soup; egg rolls; Pad Thai;... More
