“Nicely Presented Food in a Very nice atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2008

The Thai Palace restaurant in San Luis Obispo is one of the first Thai food restaurants to find its way to this small college town. The food is good but the decor and atmosphere are even better. The dining room is comfortable with soft woods and a gaudy mirror covered with dieties. The staff is very helpful and do not rush you through the meal. There were six of us dining and two were strict vegetarians. The menu, while typically Thai, has an extremely large vegetarian section which made ordering easy for the two in our party. We started with the Vegetarian Spring roles, Tofu Sate, and Chicken Sate. The Spring rolls were excellent consisting of light, crispy bites of golden outside, with cool cabbage and carrots on the inside. The sweet dipping sauce was a nice addition to the rolls. The chicken and tofu sate were at best average. Both were simply grilled without the use of salt, pepper, or seasoning. Despite drenching them in peanut sauce, the skewers were dry and not easy eat. Our next course was a vegetarian coconut milk based soup with lemon grass and vegetable. This soup was very good as the vegetables despite being drenched in the broth were still fresh and crispy. The broth was creamy and slightly sweet. Our main courses consisted of Pad Thai with Chicken and Prawns, Pad Thai with Tofu, Yellow Curry Chicken, and another vegetable dish which I did not recognize. The Pad Thai dishes were fantastic! The Yellow chicken curry, while spicy, was not overpowering, and was very tasty. This was a very nice Thai meal and dinner for 6 with three glasses of wine was just over $100.00 If you are in town and want something different than the usual Steaks and Barbeque that SLO is known for, try Thai Palace.
