Best Thai restaurant I've ever been to

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... read more

We vacationed in Thailand on our honeymoon and it was nice to find this gem in Pasadena. Tonight was phad Thai, satay, rice , vegetables with oyster sauce. It was all good. 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

The place is in pasadena, very nice, with a big parking lot, inside it is really comfortable and elegant as well. Very... More

Okay, I love Thai food. I set a pretty high bar for the cuisine. This is one of the most attractive Thai restaurants I've ever been in. The service was great. The food was good, no issues with it. It just wasn't great. I'll return again someday with little lower expectations and try something different to eat.

I've been coming here from the time it was in a little house next door. The same family has owned it all this time and the owner is very often on site, overseeing. It has a pleasant lively atmosphere but calming at the same time and is spotlessly clean. It is relaxing because I know I will have a good... More

I love Asian food and this restaurant is centrally located in Pasadena along Rosemead Boulevard. This has been a favorite place to bring my family. I usually have Saturday lunch to wet my appetite. The Thai Chicken and the Beef platter are my favorite. The servers are always smiling and the service is good. The meal portions are reasonably good... More

We love the food, love the service, love the lunch specials, REALLLY love the fish dishes (not fish eaters either!), and love the cleanliness of the restaurant! And, the limited parking seemed to be alleviated by the attendant who guided us to the lot next door to the restaurant! Thank you, President Thai, for maintaining such high standards in food...

This was a first visit, but we enjoy Thai cuisine and President Thai had good reviews. We were happy to find the place lived up to those reviews. From the parking attendant who waved us into an open space, to the friendly greeting at the door, it started well and continued on that level. Service was fast and friendly, prices... More

An absolutely wonderful experience. The food was flavorful and plentiful, at very reasonable prices. I like a bit more heat, so I'll ask for it next time.
