We ordered 8 entrees and everything except the Phad Thai was very good to excellent. Phad Thai was rather bland but all other dishes were well seasoned, fresh and not oily, with high quality chicken and/or tofu.

Had dinner at the Thai Smile Restaurant. We were there early and the only customers about 4:30. Started filling up before we left. Seemed like repeat customers. Food was good, service good, family owned.

Nice little Thai place in San Rafael. Friendly staff, cozy ambiance, and very good array of offerings ranging from traditional soups to pad Thai noodle dishes to curries and fish. Pumpkin curry definitely recommended - a nice twist on a classic dish.

I adore coming here and getting my favorite Chu Chee Curry (hot red curry) with prawns. It's one of the house specialties, and even though its not nearly as hot as I'd prefer, it's chock full of yummy bell peppers, basil, broccoli and prawns. The...More
