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

Who would have thought the day after Christmas restaurant would be so busy. Well this place sure was. We got there just little after 6pm and boy did we get there in time. Our wait was 15-20 mins but as we were waiting the door were starting to pile up with more groups coming to dine. The waiting area inside... More

Beautiful tradational architecture when you arrive with ample parking. Great selection of reasonably priced wine. Diverse authentic Thai menu. We had the PAD KEE MOW and YUM NUAH salad and wine...... excellent! So many more choices we will be back. You will love it. Feels very local ; busy on a rainy Monday night which is a good sign. ENJOY!

It is always crowded (for good reason), but they have a lot of seating. They even have parking attendants to direct you to one of their several parking areas. They are pretty efficient at waiting the tables, despite the crowds. The menu is extensive, with a lot of pictures. I've been to ~5 Thai restaurants in Pasadena, including Abricot, not... More

We have had a total of 16 different dishes and never had a complaint. In fact all was good or exceptional. Wait staff was well trained and attentive.... More
