A well established Thai restaurant in the Coachella Desert. Moderately priced with fresh food that is tasty and enjoyable. During season reservations are a good idea. This is a very popular restaurant. Families are welcome.

Like Thai food? Thai Smile is the best we have found in the Desert and beyond. The food is well prepared and slightly adjusted to American tastes. Lunch or dinner here is like being back in Thailand.

My wife and I cannot get enough of this wonderful restaurant. Put Thai Smile on the top of your restaurant list!

This place doesn't quite measure up to the Thai food found in East Hollywood. Nevertheless,
Thai Smile delivered with tasty offerings, an inviting dining room and good service. We spent
three hours enjoying food and conversation and were not rushed by the staff. Perhaps because
the room wasn't full. Chicken was the meat of choice. It was in the cocoanut soup, a passable
chow mein, and served with spicy peanut sauce as well as the hot basil dish. Maybe local tastes are milder, because the spicy dishes didn't deliver the fire. It was a little pricey for Thai chow...but, hey...it's Rancho Mirage.

Went early as we were hungry. Waiter took nearly 10 minutes to bring a coke and glass of wine in a near empty room. The pad Thai was luke warm but tasty. The sizzling combo is no longer brought to the table sizzling because the steam "bothered nearby tables". Really? Then change the name of the dish. At $18 I want more than what was served. We would eat here more if staff showed a little more interest, and the food was more reasonably priced.

Great food coupled with great service.

Been at Thai Smile at least 15 to 20 times.

If you choose Thai Smile, I believe you'll leave with a smile.
