I have been going to Thai Smile for years! It has set the pallet for me. Staff is friendly, food is delicious! I wished they had a dine in option like they did in the past, but we still love everything else about Thai Smile

Kentucky could just as easily be in the Midwest as the Southeast so I'm going to take the liberty of moving it for this review. You're not going to find green curry or food cooked with Thai basil. No lime leaves or Papaya salad covered...More

I used to eat frequently at the Thai Smile in Frankfort and thought it was quite good. My wife and I were in Richmond for an event, and we decided to dine here. Food was very mediocre. Water was served in paper cups. All food...More

We ate here for the first time, on a Wed. night for early dinner before a show at EKU. Our niece had recommended it; she is an EKU grad. We had no trouble finding it since someone had said to look for Little Caesars. However,...More
