We love Thai Smile. It is family owned and we always feels like part of their family when we eat there. It is our "go to" place in the desert. We have eaten Thai food all over the world (including Thailand) and their food competes with the best of them.. Food and service is consistent and you always feel welcome here.

Great athmosphere and decent food, but if you are looking for something close to real Thai, this will not be it. All dishes taste about the same and are very heavy on sugar (sweet).

This is the worst meal of our seven week stay in palm Springs.
Thai Smile is so unauthentically Thai it is an absolute insult to Thai people and their amazing cuisine. The menu is full of glaring errors like Kung Pao Chicken panko Crusted this and that, Bamboo shoots, deep fried Satay, Spring Rolls and gloopy sludgy stir frys that really don't belong anywhere close to a Thai menu. There was no Lemongrass, Kaffir Lime or birds eye chills anywhere. I asked for some spicy sauce to inject some flavour into my meal and they bought me some sweet chilli sauce from a bottle. EEUGH. If you fancy really good Asian food that is bright, clean and fresh go instead to Jiao in Palm Springs.
