“Best Thai food in Palm Springs area.”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Thai Smile in Rancho Mirage is the best Thai restaurant in the Palm Springs area. The food is outstanding, the service is great, and the prices are reasonable. Make sure you make a reservation.

“Consistent w/ good service~”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We love being able to go to our local and privately owned resturants.
Thai Smile is one of the BEST in Rancho Mirage!
For lunch the plates are very satisfying and plenty to fill ones tummy.
A la Carte selections are authentic, kept on a American palate degree of temprature though can be spiced up if you ask. Real Thai food is quite spicy. I like that I can have the food flavorful but not too hot for my tastebuds. The service is very good here, we like having Hector as our server. He is good at what he does and pays attention to his customers.

“Deelish!!!!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

On a recent stay in Rancho Mirage, our hotel recommended Thai Smile. What a find. We went without a reservation and it was packed for a Monday night. The owner could not have been nicer and tried to make our wait as comfortable as possibe. It was well worth the wait, which ended up not being too long. The food, atmosphere and servers could not be better and the prices were very fair. We really enjoy Thai food and this was some of the best. I definitely would recommend making a reservation and requesting a booth which gives you a little more elbow room.

“Not as good as other Thai restaurants in other towns”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

My wife enjoys Thai food so we made reservations at Thai Smile for her birthday with our 3 teenage girls. Maybe this is the best in the Palm Desert area but we were disappointed based upon our expectations after reading the reviews. Everything was average. We live out of state and will pass on Thai food in this region in the future based upon our experience at this restaurant. Apart from the average food and service, this is just another strip mall restaurant with tables lined up as tight as possible in a small space. No real atmosphere.

“Thai food is great”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

If you have never tried Thai food this is a good place to start. The food is fresh and well prepared; the service is attentive and pleasant.
